  • Manning 'dance' shows he's not all business

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Peyton Manning isn't all business all the time.

  • Denver fans finally get to see the AFC champions

    ENGLEWOOD — The Denver Broncos are playing in front of their fans for the first time since the Super Bowl.

To accommodate their fans, the Broncos are holding three workouts at Sports Authority Field over the...

  • Klee: On paper, these Broncos are Super

    ENGLEWOOD Here's the thing about paper. It is usually good to the Broncos. After losing Super Bowl XLVIII, they threw $60 million in guaranteed paper at a trio of big-splash free agents. Defenders Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward and DeMarcus Ware then signed sheets of paper to become Broncos. "This can be a night-and-day defense from last year,"...

  • Klee: Which Aqib Talib did the Broncos get?

    DENVER - Carrying his helmet and a quizzical look, Aqib Talib sauntered over to fellow cornerback Bradley Roby with a question. Hold on. The All-World cornerback interrogating the NFL rookie? Please explain. "I was trying to learn myself, seeing what they was in and what he was looking at," Talib said after his second practice as a member...

  • Kids and former Broncos enjoy junior training camp at State Games

  • Raiders have high hopes for rookie Khalil Mack

    NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Khalil Mack is entering the NFL with much more fanfare than he began his college career.

  • Broncos linebacker Von Miller reshapes physique and image in 2014

    ENGLEWOOD — Von Miller wants to forget about last season, not just the way it began with a drug suspension and ended with a torn ACL but also how he experimented with packing on too much muscle. He's dropped at least 25 pounds, saying, "a Ferrari isn't built to carry luggage to and from the airport." "You just want to be light, streamlined...

  • Camps are open, training rooms will get busy

    Now that training camps are underway, team owners and fantasy football fans alike are holding their collective breath, praying to reach the regular season with their rosters intact. Chances are they won't. Three playmaking linebackers didn't even make it through the offseason healthy: Dallas' Sean Lee, Buffalo's Kiko Alonso and Atlanta's Sean...

  • All quiet at Denver Broncos camp this summer

    ENGLEWOOD — Sylvester Williams plucked Peyton Manning's throw out of the air, then the 313-pound defensive tackle raced around the right side, flipping the ball to safety Quinton Carter, who promptly dropped it with nobody between him and the end zone 50 yards away. Crickets. Williams smothered the ball, giving him an interception and a...

  • Irsay arrives at Colts training camp

    ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) — Jim Irsay was back at one of his favorite hangouts Friday — the Indianapolis Colts' training camp. He's hoping to stick around a while longer.

  • Sure-handed Decker could boost Jets in red zone

    CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) — Eric Decker got lost on his first day of training camp. Yes, he had a map. And, sure, he was only going from his dorm room to the practice field — a few football fields away on the SUNY Cortland campus. Somehow, he ended up downtown taking an inadvertent tour. "I didn't know where I was going and I drove into the town,"...

  • Dolphins' Pouncey, Moreno begin camp on PUP list

    DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey and running back Knowshon Moreno are starting training camp on the physically unable to perform list.

  • Broncos notes: Manning misses fans

    Thomas misses training camp opener Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas was not present at Dove Valley on Thursday for the opening training camp.

  • Rookies Bradley Roby and Cody Latimer put college rivalry aside with Broncos

    ENGLEWOOD - C-minus - That's how Broncos rookies Bradley Roby and Cody Latimer graded themselves after their first NFL training camp practice Thursday at Dove Valley.

  • Ramsey: Broncos defense will be much better with Miller, Ware

    ENGLEWOOD - The apocalypse, otherwise known as the Broncos Super Bowl loss to the Seahawks, altered minds all across The Front Range. Extreme disappointment can do that to a brain. One of those altered minds belongs to John Elway. "We've got a chance to be pretty good on defense," Elway said with uncharacteristic modesty. He's clearly still...

  • Klee blog: Pat Bowlen, Colorado's constant

    As a kid, you don’t always think about why things happen. We often just kind of accept them as facts of life. And so it goes for a kid growing up in Colorado. We didn’t wonder why the Broncos are almost always good; we just kind of figured those are the rules. Another NFL season, another good Broncos team. The same was true for me....

  • Excused Demaryius Thomas among the missing from Broncos training camp

    It’s the first day of football school, aka Broncos training camp. Time for roll call: Who’s missing?  You guys are missing. Where’d you go? The Broncos are here, on the practice field, thumping sleds and not thumping Peyton Manning. But the diehard, devoted, dedicated fans of the Broncos… nowhere to be seen. OK, there’s a reason for...

  • Manning getting used to new faces on Broncos

    ENGLEWOOD — Though his physical condition is no longer a big question mark for Peyton Manning, when he looks around at training camp, he must feel like he's starting over again. Manning lined up for his first snaps Thursday behind an offensive line that has been shuffled, in front of a running back who took only about 25 percent of the snaps...

  • Elway on Pat Bowlen giving up control of Broncos: 'This place will never be the same'

    ENGLEWOOD — Even as dementia began to rob him of some of his fondest memories over the past few years, Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen reported to work every day to oversee multimillion-dollar upgrades to the team's training facilities and roster. So his absence from Dove Valley headquarters on Wednesday as players reported for physicals on...

  • Ramsey: Elway will carry Bowlen's spirit into Broncos future

    ENGLEWOOD - John Elway, the man most responsible for the Broncos' past six trips to the Super Bowl, struggled to speak. He was paying tribute to his mentor, Pat Bowlen, and he had so much to say.

  • Elway wants better balance from Broncos

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — What bothered John Elway last year was the Broncos' imbalance, which showed up in a big way at the Super Bowl. Denver's patchwork defense was an inadequate accompaniment to Peyton Manning's record-breaking offense, and the Broncos' high-flying passing game didn't get quite enough help on the ground. So, the Broncos...

  • Statement from Annabel Bowlen on Pat Bowlen giving up control of the Broncos

    Here are the statements released by Annabel Bowlen, the wife of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, regarding the management of the team: As many in the Denver community and around the National Football League have speculated, my husband, Pat, has very bravely and quietly battled Alzheimer's disease for the last few years.
