Broncos get to 53-man limit, keep just two QBs

The Broncos have a pretty good quarterback, so they’re only going to keep two. The Broncos waived third quarterback Zac Dysert, leaving only Brock Osweiler and some guy named Peyton Manning. Otherwise, the Broncos’ cuts were pretty by the book. They terminated the contracts of five veterans: Tight ends Jameson Konz and Cameron Morrah, cornerback Jerome Murphy and defensive...

Broncos waive QB Zac Dysert

The Denver Broncos will start the season with just two quarterbacks on their roster. Peyton Manning will again be backed up by Brock Osweiler. On Saturday the Broncos waived Zac Dysert. Dysert, 24, made the Broncos roster as the third string quarterback last year in part because the Broncos were concerned about losing him if they attempted to send him to the practice squad. A former...

Osweiler leads Broncos offense to rout of Cowboys

  Brock Osweiler is ready for a third season as Peyton Manning's backup in Denver. Dallas has to hope Brandon Weeden can be a solid insurance policy with Tony Romo coming off back surgery. Osweiler led four scoring drives in the final tuneup for another year behind Manning, and the Broncos beat the Cowboys 27-3 Thursday night, sending Dallas to the fifth winless preseason in...

Cody Latimer’s amazing one-handed grab in practice is a must-see (VIDEO)

Cody Latimer could be something special. We’ve seen glimpses of what the Denver Broncos second-round draft pick out of Indiana can do when he accelerated, fought through a defensive back and dove to make a touchdown catch against the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday. But this catch puts that one to shame. On Wednesday, Brock Osweiler threw a football to Latimer in the back of the...

Osweiler's extended apprenticeship continues

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) There was a time when Brock Osweiler wanted to seek out Aaron Rodgers to pick his brain about how he waited so patiently for his shot while serving an extended apprenticeship under Brett Favre. Peyton Manning's protege, however, decided to figure it out for himself. After all, mimicking one great quarterback is plenty. Although he has more mobility than...

Life after Manning should not include Brock Osweiler for the Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos are absolutely loaded on offense. That’s no secret. In addition to their future Hall of Fame quarterback, Broncos fans are spoiled by having one of the best offensive lines in the league and more talented receiving options than they know what to do with. And while the team has adopted a mindset of “Super Bowl or bust” for this upcoming year, one can’t help...

Peyton Manning talks Broncos’ first preseason matchup

Peyton Manning led the Denver Broncos first team offense to a first quarter touchdown before a 46-minute lightning delay at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Manning, who played just the first quarter, went 10-of-13 for 78 yards and led the Broncos on a 14 play, 61 yard drive to give Denver a 7-0 lead over the Seattle Seahawks following a Ronnie Hillman one-yard touchdown run...

The Denver Broncos need to hold the line

Many of the names were the same, and there was a little more intensity than normal for the first practice game. The good guys won this time, but otherwise the Broncos 21-16 flag-fest victory over the hated/world champion Seattle Seahawks doesn’t carry a lot of weight. It certainly doesn’t amount to any sort of payback. As is the case with all American football “friendlies...

Why the Denver Broncos preseason matters

Count me among those that do not place much value on the NFL Preseason. These “exhibitions” are little more than a cash grab for the owners who charge full ticket prices for meaningless scrimmages. The final scores are completely inconsequential as the top players are used sparingly. The bulk of the playing time goes to backup players that will rarely see the field when the season...

Time to showcase the backup QB

On Saturday, all three of the Broncos quarterbacks shined during the team’s annual scrimmage at Sports Authority Field. By day’s end, Peyton Manning, Brock Osweiler and Zac Dysert had combined to complete 14 of 15 passes for 200 yards and a pair of touchdown passes; that’s the definition of efficiency, as the trio carved up a Denver defense that was missing several key starters...

Broncos Camp Battles: Dysert vs Renner

I might be in the minority in Broncos Country, but I'm a lot higher on Zac Dysert than Brock Osweiler. I didn't like the fact that the Broncos spent a 2nd round pick on Osweiler in 2012, when the team was in "Win Now" mode with Peyton Manning.I understand that the team needed a young QB to groom, who had the potential to be a future franchise QB, but I honestly...

Brock Osweiler is the most pointless player on the Denver Broncos

Why is Brock Osweiler on the Denver Broncos? This is the question I’ve been asking myself for the last two years. Is this lanky, 6’7″, Robert Pattinson look-alike really the heir apparent to Peyton Manning? That’s what John Elway would lead us to believe, but I think he’s 100 percent wrong. Osweiler was drafted by the Broncos as an insurance plan for Peyton Manning. Nobody...
