  • 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. Maybe it's not a coincidence the two chose the same grade - besides sharing a common college conference, the Big Ten, the top two Broncos draft picks seem to be of the same...

  • 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: 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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. He has elected to keep...

  • Elway hits the greens on eve of training camp

    CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. (AP) — The greens and not the greenbacks are what held John Elway's attention on the eve of training camp.

  • Broncos release tight end Joel Dreessen

  • Manning is close, but rookie has highest-selling NFL jersey

    You may love Johnny Manziel or cringe every time someone brings up his name, but the Browns rookie quarterback is predictably selling a lot of jerseys.

  • Chargers bolt into camp with high hopes

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — Expectations are high again in San Diego, thanks to the Chargers' return to the playoffs last season.

  • Raiders enter camp with 'chip' on shoulders

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — There was a common theme to the players the Oakland Raiders brought in this offseason.

"Everybody here has something to prove and...

  • Broncos' Wes Welker takes flight with Thunderbirds

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Denver Bronco Wes Welker says he's glad he took flight with the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds in Cheyenne but he's not sure he'll do it again anytime soon.

  • Patriots head to camp with restocked defense

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots' defense struggled for much of last season. And that was before it faced the NFL's best offense in the AFC championship game. Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos won 26-16 and piled up 507 yards, the most New England allowed in Bill Belichick's 14 years as coach. So the Patriots stocked up on players...

  • Klee: Yapping Seahawks earned trash talk, Broncos great Shannon Sharpe says

    DENVER - Pssst. Did you hear what the Seahawks said about the Broncos? The Seahawks think the Broncos were stunned, spooked, spineless. They think the Broncos are softer than Alki Beach after a November rain. Oh, you didn't hear? No worries. It's been 10 minutes or so. Any time now, the Seahawks will start talking again. Wait for it ......

  • Klee: DeMarcus Ware as Broncos co-MVP? That would be a good thing

    DENVER — Peyton for President? The MVP needs a VP. Just like last year, Manning will enter the season as the favorite to win the NFL's Most Valuable Player award, slightly ahead of Green Bay's mustachioed double-checker Aaron Rodgers, according to Las Vegas oddsmakers. Can Manning claim the award for the second time as a Bronco and the...
