Cody Latimer to Play Big Role With Broncos in 2015

Cody Latimer spent the majority of last season on the bench watching and anxiously waiting for when he could step in and be an every-down wide receiver. Last season, Latimer appeared in eight games for the Broncos while recording only two catches.

Chris Harris Epitomizes Broncos Fans, City of Denver

Shannon Sharpe, Rod Smith, and Ed McCaffrey. One was drafted late, one not at all, and one was let go, twice. All of these players, however, had highly successful and undeniably memorable careers in Denver. Who could forget the 1996 season when Shannon Sharpe had well over 1,000 yards? Or when Rod Smith and Ed McCaffrey each had 100 receptions and combined to form one of the most...

Denver Broncos: Wes Welker Passes Rod Smith for Most Catches by Undrafted Player

This one’s for Pat. It’s the phrase we all wanted uttered by John Elway following Super Bowl XLVIII, but the storybook ending on one of the most magical seasons in Denver Broncos history wasn’t meant to be. When the Broncos beat the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, though, there was Bowlen, smiling as the orange and blue confetti fell from the stadium rafters...

It’s all about Denver Broncos undrafted free agents

There is a great deal of press on the six players the Broncos drafted, but what about the 15 undrafted free agents the team signed? It is rare for an undrafted free agent to find success on a team, let alone make it on the roster. There are, however, exceptions, such as current cornerback Chris Harris, Jr...

Who is the soul of the Denver Broncos?

Who is the soul of this Broncos team? I know Peyton Manning is the face of the team, but he’s not the soul. To be the soul, you have to be a Bronco through and through. The soul of the team lives and dies for the Mile High City, and the Mile High City lives and dies for them.

Rod Smith is a special kind of man. Smith grew up one of four children in Arkansas in difficult circumstances.
