  • Denver Broncos renew faith in backup QB Osweiler

    ENGLEWOOD — Brock Osweiler honeymooned in the Caribbean this offseason, and the Denver Broncos renewed their vows with Peyton Manning's backup over the weekend. As expected, John Elway drafted a quarterback, something he's done three times since he signed Manning in 2012. However, seventh-rounder Trevor Siemian of Northwestern is more of a...

  • Denver Broncos release tackle, wide receiver

    ENGLEWOOD — The Denver Broncos continued their offensive line makeover by waiving second-year tackle Paul Cornick, who started three games each at right tackle and tight end last season.

  • Klee: With Broncos draft pick Shane Ray, mom knows best

    ENGLEWOOD - Mom deserves the best. A single mom raising a rebellious, sometimes angry boy into a man? If there's something better than the best, she deserves that. Shane Ray's mom is sweeter than Tupelo honey, the kind of lady who uses "heck" instead of the other word, "gosh" instead of the alternative. I don't know Sebrina Johnson's entire...

  • Broncos stick with theme of toughness, athleticism

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Grouching that the Denver Broncos hadn't gone out "kicking and screaming" in the playoffs the last three seasons, John Elway set out to toughen up a team that featured 11 Pro Bowlers but went out with a whimper. After changing coaches and shaking up the roster, he fashioned a draft class thick on toughness and...

  • Broncos stick with theme of toughness, athleticism in Day 3 of draft

    ENGLEWOOD — Grouching that the Denver Broncos hadn't gone out "kicking and screaming" in the playoffs the last three seasons, John Elway set out to toughen up a team that featured 11 Pro Bowlers but went out with a whimper. After changing coaches and shaking up the roster, he fashioned a draft class thick on toughness and athleticism. The...

  • NFL DRAFT: Jets grab QB Petty in trade

    CHICAGO (AP) — Quarterbacks Bryce Petty and Brett Hundley found their way into the NFL on Day 3 of the draft Saturday — heading to entirely different circumstances. Baylor's Petty went to the New York Jets, who've had inconsistency at the position for years. UCLA's Hundley will journey to Green Bay, where hardly anyone can remember the last...

  • Broncos' top draft pick Shane Ray begins his redemption tour

    ENGLEWOOD — Shane Ray assured everyone his foot is on the mend. His reputation may take a little more time. The Denver Broncos first-round selection arrived in the NFL with baggage after his citation for possession of pot three days before the draft. That overshadowed the little detail the pass rusher out of Missouri has a hyper-extended...

  • Broncos could be looking at QBs on final day of NFL draft

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos may be looking at quarterbacks on the final day of the NFL draft after already picking up a pass rusher, offensive lineman and a tight end.

  • Ravens snag TE Williams and DT Davis on draft's 2nd day

    OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens insist that talent, not positional need, is the driving force behind their draft. While that may be true, the Ravens have already filled three sizable holes over the first three rounds. Baltimore selected Minnesota tight end Maxx Williams and Iowa defensive tackle Carl Davis on Friday night after...

  • Lions draft Nebraska RB Abdullah, Stanford CB Carter

    ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Ameer Abdullah is ready to help Detroit's backfield. He's just not about to compare himself to the running back he is replacing. "I think there's only one Reggie Bush," Abdullah said. "Hopefully I'm out to prove that there's only one Ameer Abdullah. Reggie, obviously, in my years of living, watching college football...

  • Broncos take tight end Jeff Heuerman in third round

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos have selected Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman in the third round of the NFL draft on Friday night.

Denver...

  • NFL Draft: Day 2: Broncos choose CSU tackle Ty Sambrailo, grab tight end in 3rd round

    ENGLEWOOD — The Denver Broncos didn't have to go far to find their second-round draft pick, Colorado State offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo. Sambrailo, whose name is pronounced sam-BRAY-loh, was the 59th overall pick Friday night. He projects as a left tackle, but Ryan Clady currently serves as Peyton Manning's blindside protector, so his...
