  • Report: Broncos expected to use franchise tag on WR Demaryius Thomas

    Three Mississippi, two Mississippi, one Mississippi ... ready or not, Demaryius Thomas, here come the Broncos. Regardless of how overpowering Thomas may be on the field, the Broncos will catch him in the game of franchise tag Monday and he will be it in a bargaining move that all but ensures the team of retaining their star wide receiver for...

  • Klee: If Manning is problem - please offer a solution

    DENVER - The Peyton Manning backlash is real, and it is bizarre. There is a noisy faction of the orange populous that truly believes the Broncos are better off without Manning, that the Broncos should move on from the 38-year-old quarterback. No, really. It's out there. At first I assumed these were Raiders fans in Broncos clothing, fed up...

  • 4 O'Clock Shadow: John Elway expects Peyton Manning will quarterback Broncos

    John Elway won Super Bowls as the 37- and 38-year-old quarterback of the Broncos. Can Peyton Manning do it at 39? Without an official announcement — yet — it sounds like Manning will get the chance.   “My gut says he’ll come back,” Elway said during a radio interview on Denver news station 850 KOA. Manning has a physical scheduled...

  • Elway: Broncos want Manning back, still awaiting word

    INDIANAPOLIS — The ball is in Peyton Manning's court. Broncos executive John Elway said as much Thursday at the NFL scouting combine, making it clear he's still waiting to hear whether the 38-year-old quarterback wants to return for a fourth season in Denver. Manning and Elway met last week in Denver, but Manning left without a definitive...

  • 4 O'Clock Shadow: Front Range prospects at NFL scouting combine

    The NFL scouting combine is an elaborate job interview, and because of that, I think it's a good thing. Overblown and overhyped? That, too. But jobs are good, and here's hoping that most of these Colorado-produced candidates fare well enough in Indianapolis to score a proper job in the NFL. The combine opens Wednesday with coverage on NFL...

  • Phillips still has passion, wit as he begins latest gig

    ENGLEWOOD — At 67, Wade Phillips has lost neither his passion nor his esprit. Both are on full display, along with his trademark confidence, as he begins his second stint as defensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos. Phillips, who took last year off, said he hasn't gotten his fill of football after working for nine NFL teams since 1976....

  • KLEE: Broncos, Wade Phillips must stay true to 'aggressive' theme

    DENVER — The most important words muttered at Broncos headquarters so far this offseason came from Wade Phillips and his Texas twang. That's good, because Wade Phillips is the most important addition to the Broncos so far this offseason. "This is an attack defense," the new/old defensive coordinator said Tuesday. And again: "We're...

  • Dennison says Broncos are in no rush for Manning decision

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — New offensive coordinator Rick Dennison says the Denver Broncos are in "no rush" to get an answer from Peyton Manning about his plans for 2015.
