Tuesday at Dove Valley, Broncos CEO and president Joe Ellis addressed the team on the NFL's new policy on national anthem protests Tuesday.

"It went well. It was good that Joe can address the team with that issue. It hadn't been an issue for our football team, but the policy came out last week and he wanted to confirm what the policy meant — for the ownership and the players," coach Vance Joseph said after OTAs. "It was a great conversation — again, a conversation. He gave some clarity to it, what it meant for us. It was great to have Joe talk to the team about the issue."

Joseph, one of six black head coaches in the NFL, said the policy is "a good thing." He added the Broncos aren't looking to create a policy of their own.

"We don't need one. This is the beauty about having a policy — having a league policy now. Last year we didn't have a policy, so you had 32 different policies," he said. "This is a good thing for our league to have one policy. And it's clean. It's clean for everyone involved. I am happy it's a policy in place for all 32 teams (that's) the same."

See? This wasn't hard. But good on the NFL for reading The Gazette.
