Denver Broncos A-Team: Ronnie Hillman and two more stars from Week 4

The Denver Broncos earned a win against a resilient Minnesota Vikings team on Sunday afternoon. No surprise here, the defense looked great in big play situations. Besides Adrian Peterson busting off a 4- yard touchdown run, Mile High No Fly (I’m not sure if I’m sold on the new nickname) kept Teddy Bridgewater and the passing game from making big plays. Mike Wallace was a thorn...

  There’s a revolving door in Denver so far this preseason with anyone whose profession has to do with their leg. Out is Connor Barth who was a great late-season addition last year to come in and do what Brandon McManus couldn’t do: Kick makeable field goals. Instead, the Broncos decided to stick with McManus as the kickoff man and place kicker due to his improved accuracy with...

Broncos getting their kicks at this training camp

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The Denver Broncos have a kicking conundrum. Last year they had to carry kickoff specialist Brandon McManus when they made the switch to Connor Barth for field goals at midseason. They cannot afford that luxury this year.

Colquitt makes the smart move taking pay cut

If this were 2012, Britton Colquitt might have had some leverage. After coffin-cornering the Broncos to a miraculous 8-8 finish and playoff berth in the 2011 season, Colquitt’s contributions to the Broncos in the Tim Tebow era cannot be understated. It was often Colquitt’s booming leg that pinned opponents deep in their own territory that year so the Broncos’ suffocating defense...
