  • Rodgers-Cromartie letting play speak for himself

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — On the first day of training camp, well-traveled cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie showed why the New York Giants signed him to a five-year, $35 million contract in the offseason. Eli Manning faded back and launched a long pass downfield for first-round draft pick Odell Beckham Jr., only to see...

  • Broncos again class of AFC West

    As good as any division a year ago, the AFC West is about to get tested. Bigtime. The AFC West sported three playoff teams last season, with late-charging San Diego and resurgent Kansas City joining Super Bowl-bound Denver in the postseason. The path to the playoffs in 2014 has a few more potholes: The AFC West has to play the NFC West,...

  • Blog: Broncos: Texans' Jadeveon Clowney worthy of ride on hype machine

    A wise Big Ten coach once told me there are three premium positions in football: Quarterback, left tackle and pass-rusher (either at linebacker or at defensive end). To build a championship team, no matter the level of football, a team needs a top talent at all three. The Texans are rebuilding after a 2-14 season. They arrived in Colorado on...

  • Peyton Manning: 'Our offense stunk today'

    ENGLEWOOD — Peyton Manning was disgusted with the Denver Broncos offense after the first of three practices with the Houston Texans. "I thought our offense stunk today," Manning said after Tuesday's two-hour practice in shells and shorts. "I thought their defense totally kicked our butt." And when the five-time MVP isn't happy, nobody's...

  • Broncos look primed for another big run

    ENGLEWOOD - The Denver Broncos look like they're ready to start the season.

Denver's starting offense is in midseason form with three...

  • Blog: Broncos and Texans joint practice: Good or bad idea?

    The Texans' team bus pulled up to the Broncos headquarters at 10:06 a.m. today. With it, the number of feared NFL pass-rushers grew to four. Von Miller. DeMarcus Ware. J.J. Watt. Jadeveon Clowney. Sounds like fun, unless you're a quarterback. To protect the quarterbacks, Peyton Manning and the Broncos' quarterbacks are wearing blue jerseys....

  • Klee: In Bay Area win, Broncos defense closes gap with offense

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The Broncos didn't do everything right Sunday. It only seemed that way. In a perfectly orange world, Peyton Manning wouldn't wobble up the middle on a quarterback draw. What are you thinking, man? A few things can happen, and none of them are good. But once Denver finished smashing the San Francisco 49ers 34-0 in a...

  • Blog: Broncos: Site of the Super Bowl (in 2016)

      Levi's Stadium, in two words: Goodness gracious. The San Francisco 49ers built a palace.

  • Finding Holliday's replacement proves difficult

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — For the past two years, one of the biggest questions facing the Denver Broncos was whether Trindon Holliday was going to return a kick to the end zone or turn it over. The Broncos got tired of watching him fumble and so in the offseason they parted ways with the fleet-footed return man who was equal parts electric and...

  • Klee: On the mend, Broncos star Von Miller brings Mom to camp

    ENGLEWOOD - Practice was over. In the far endzone, under a grassy berm built of dirt and sod, a pass-rushing tandem that could be the most fearsome in Broncos history approached a woman. She wore a "Miller 58" T-shirt, and a smile. "That's my mom," linebacker Von Miller told The Gazette as the Broncos concluded their training camp Friday. Why...

  • 49ers' Kaepernick won't play much against Broncos

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. — 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick isn't likely to play more than a series or two when San Francisco plays its first preseason game at newly finished Levi's Stadium.

  • Computer simulation says Broncos will get Super Bowl revenge on Seahawks

    If you watched last season's Super Bowl, you'd have a hard time believing the Denver Broncos could beat the Seattle Seahawks. Well, PredictionMachine.com apparently didn't watch that game.

  • Brandon Marshall out to make a name for himself

    ENGLEWOOD — Brandon Marshall is embracing the opportunity to make a name for himself with the Denver Broncos. If he can do that, maybe fans will stop mistaking him for the Chicago Bears' 30-year-old star wide receiver with the same name, the one who wore out his welcome in Denver five years ago. The Brandon Marshall now playing in Denver...

  • 49ers' Ian Williams taking steps toward return

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — After three years and six NFL games, San Francisco nose tackle Ian Williams finally got his first pro start. It lasted less than a half.

  • Broncos: Heads up! Broncos-Texans to host joint practices

    Maybe it’s just the Raiders being the Raiders. Maybe it’s just part of the Davis family’s master plan of possibly moving the Raiders to southern California. 

  • Klee: Scuffling Broncos bring fight to the field

    DENVER — Fight! The Broncos are rrrready to rumble. Scrap the pads. Lace up the gloves. On Day 14 of training camp - a fortnight, or a fightnight? - the Broncos got in the ring.

  • Manning showing a smell-the-roses approach

    ENGLEWOOD — Peyton Manning seems to be having a lot more fun this summer. He's still grinding through training camp like always but he's also showing a loosey-goosey side that he rarely flashed in Indy or in his first two seasons in Denver. One morning, he's doing a dorky dance to "Rocky Top" during stretch time at Broncos headquarters —...

  • Video: Robin Williams made Broncos history as first male cheerleader

    “We’re gonna go out there, and win this one for the zipper!” That was Robin Williams, on Nov. 11, 1979, as “Mork,” an alien he first introduced to us on the set of “Happy Days” and later made famous on “Mork & Mindy.” On this day, Mork, who lived in Boulder, made history. He became the first male cheerleader in Denver Broncos history,...

  • Broncos backup QB Brock Osweiler's extended apprenticeship continues

    ENGLEWOOD - There was a time when Brock Osweiler wanted to seek out Aaron Rodgers to pick his brain about how he waited so patiently for his shot while serving an extended apprenticeship under Brett Favre.
