Is it time for some Fitzmagic? | Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Is it time for a little Fitzmagic? This may come as a shock, but the Broncos have questions at the quarterback position. Whether you believe in Drew Lock, it’s hard to call his 2020 anything but a huge disappointment. There have already been reports that George Paton tried to acquire former Lion Matthew Stafford, and he said Thursday the Broncos will look to add to the quarterback room. We’re always going to try and bring in competition to every position, the quarterback as well. Perhaps Paton is ready for a...

Be the GM: Broncos Vote Mock 4.0

Don’t let Dre’Mont down. | Photo by Dustin Bradford/Icon Sportswire via Who should the Broncos pick? Over the last month we’ve seen Justin Simmons receive another franchise tag and A.J. Bouye and Jurrell Casey receive walking papers. George Paton had a press conference with plenty of vague answers that leave him plenty of wiggle room in the days ahead. It’s an exciting time in Broncos Country. Hope springs eternal. What better time than now to have the fourth edition of our Broncos Vote Mock. To add to the fun I’ve decided to throw a bit of a wildcard...

Video shows Jerry Jeudy getting in some intense hand-eye coordination work in

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is getting his offseason workouts in, which included this crazy hand-eye coordination drill. It’s workout season, so every now and then we’ll see something come out on Twitter of a Denver Broncos player kicking butt in a workout. This is one I haven’t seen before and Jerry Jeudy was rocking that hand-eye coordination like a mad man.

Broncos plan to tender RFA Phillip Lindsay

Broncos plan to tender RFA Phillip Lindsay

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The Broncos need more from their running game, but will they resign the highly talented Phillip Lindsay? On Thursday, Denver Broncos General Manager George Paton let everyone know that he plans to tender restricted free agent running back Phillip Lindsay. This likely means he won’t be going anywhere. “We’re still working through Phillip,” Paton said. “Phillip is a good player and very passionate. He had some injuries last year and he brings energy and juice. He’s a restricted free agent and we do plan on tendering him. I’m not...

Photo by AAron Ontiveroz/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Does it make sense for the Broncos to bring back Elijah Wilkinson? Does he want to stay in Denver? Elijah Wilkinson started his NFL career as an undrafted free college free agent who made the Bronco’s practice squad first in 2017. Over the past three seasons he has played almost 1800 offensive snaps for the Broncos. He played 520, 835 and 420 offensive snaps respectively for the Broncos in the the last three seasons. He signed a restricted free agent tender to play for the Broncos in 2020 which earned him...

Broncos’ GM George Paton to decide on Bradley Chubb’s fifth-year option after draft

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports It is unlikely the Denver Broncos skip out on Bradley Chubb’s fifth-year option, but they will wait until they get through the 2021 NFL Draft to make that decision. The Denver Broncos have a decision to make on edge rusher Bradley Chubb this offseason. They have until May 3rd to exercise Chubb’s fifth-year option or he’ll become an unrestricted free agent in 2022. New Broncos’ General Manager George Paton was asked about that process and Paton sounded like he is in no hurry to make a decision right now. “It’s only March,”...

Report: Broncos met virtually with Tulsa linebacker Zaven Collins

Brett Rojo-USA TODAY Sports The Broncos are showing interest in the projected first-round linebacker. According to reports, the Denver Broncos are among the teams that have or will in the future meet virtually with Tulsa linebacker Zaven Collins. He’s a talented linebacker prospect who can do it all and is currently projected to be a first-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft. Tulsa's Zaven Collins can do whatever you need him to. Rush the QB, drop in coverage & stop the run. A true chameleon that impacts the game everywhere.He's met/will meet virtually with the...

Free agent profile: Cornerback Mike Hilton

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports The Denver Broncos will be looking long and hard at adding a veteran cornerback in free agency. Would Mike Hilton fit the bill? Forget quarterbacks, let’s keep the cornerback talk going. The Denver Broncos have a very young core at this position group and the best way, in my mind, to get better overall is to add a proven veteran to the mix heading into this season. A guy like Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Mike Hilton actually fits the mold better than most free agent cornerbacks out there. Player Profile Height: 5-9Weight: 184 poundsAge:...

2020 NFL full season punting review

2020 NFL full season punting review

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ How did Sam Martin do as the Denver Broncos punter in 2020 compared to the rest of the league? You would think that Denver should be a haven for punters. Playing half of your games at roughly one mile above sea level, should make it easier to do you job. Right? Generally you should be able to get more distance on your punts at elevation than at sea level. Unfortunately for the Denver Broncos, this does not appear to be the case. Bronco punters have fared poorly over the past decade both in Denver and on the road while opposing punters seem to...

Free agent profile: Defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson

Would Tomlinson be a good fit? | Photo by Mike Stobe/ Should the Denver Broncos add a former New York Giant to their defense? With Shelby Harris and DeMarcus Walker set to join Jurrell Casey in unrestricted free agency, the Broncos look like they have a rather large need along the defensive line. Over George Paton’s time with the Minnesota Vikings, the front office barely hesitated in throwing money at the line of scrimmage, so there’s a decent chance a veteran draws the Broncos’ interest. Could it be a former Giant? Dalvin Tomlinson highlights! #GiantsDraft...

Free agent profile: Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky

Photo by Chris Graythen/ Could Trubisky be the veteran that pushes Drew Lock for the starting job? With the Denver Broncos in a bit of a QB conundrum, it’s only natural to look at the free agent market. And there is a Pro Bowl QB from the 2017 draft that could be available, if George Paton wants. That’s right, Mitchell Trubisky could be a Bronco. Wrong 2017 first round draft pick, you say? Perhaps, but Trubisky has been to the playoffs twice as a starter in the NFL, and he just might be the competition Drew Lock needs. Player Profile Height: 6’ 2”Weight: 215...

Paton’s Spaces: What will the Broncos’ new GM do in free agency?

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Does Paton’s history with the Vikings provide any clues? Days after George Paton’s introductory press conference, I took a look at the draft history of the Minnesota Vikings during his tenure. I did so in part because while he didn’t have final say on the decisions, he worked under Rick Spielman so long that certain trends may emerge. Today, I thought it’d be a fruitful endeavor to pivot to the Vikings’ free agent signings over the same time frame. It’s important to keep in mind that Paton has inherited a completely different...
