Five possible surprise veteran cuts for the Broncos

Year after year the Broncos (and every NFL team) cut a handful of guys that make the average fan say, “Whaaaaat?” Just look at 2014 – raise your hand if you thought neither Duke Ihenacho nor Kevin Vickerson would suit up for Denver in Week 1. If your arm’s up, you’re a regular Pinocchio. Here are five guys who could suffer a similar fate in early September this year: 5...

30 questions: Sack it to me, big guys…

In 2014, Peyton Manning was sacked a league-low 17 times, barely more than once a game. Much of the credit can be placed upon Manning, who has utilized an extremely quick release throughout his career to avoid pressure. “I’ve always believed that quarterbacks have to be fast thinkers,” Manning told the Denver Post. “Be able to make quick decisions, kind of ‘fast-twitched’...

Three new starters to watch at training camp

Roster turn over is an all-too real part of the NFL and season after season a team’s starting lineup can appear so foreign to any fan once another year begins. For the Broncos, that will be apparent far before the team takes the field against the Baltimore Ravens September 13. In 2015 the defense will regroup and only a few players will shift around and only one to two new starters...

Gary Kubiak: Denver Broncos o-line to be competitive throughout camp

  Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak is an intelligent man. He’s already proven some of those smarts during his team’s first OTAs, resting veterans and giving the young guys more time to learn while developing chemistry. Of course, due to an injury to starting left tackle Ryan Clady as well as trading away center/guard Manny Ramirez during the NFL Draft, Kubiak’s had to...

Garland continues to pursue his American dream

The Denver Broncos took a chance on a young Air Force Cadet back in 2010. Then 6-5, 308 pounds, Ben Garland was a decent nose tackle but very undersized as he joined the team as an undrafted free agent. The climb to starting in the NFL would be tough, maybe tougher than Garland even imagined. Fast forward five years to Memorial Day. On a day in which Garland undoubtedly will be thinking...

Busy time for Broncos’ Ben Garland

Ben Garland is surely not the most recognizable person on the Denver Broncos. On a team with maximum exposure in a football-crazed town, Garland’s face sees about as little as time as possible.
