Broncos’ special teams working on new kickoff rules

Broncos’ special teams working on new kickoff rules

New special teams coach Tom McMahon believes the smaller, quicker returners will be “back in the game” thanks to the changes Good morning, Broncos Country! As you most likely recall, last month the NFL changed the kickoff return rules, and now the Broncos - and 31 other teams - are trying to figure them out. If you don’t remember the changes - or never really cared because the Broncos have generally been mediocre to terrible at (catching) returning the ball - SBNation has done the hard work and explained them here: The NFL passed new kickoff rules for 2018. Here’s what they are...

Former Temple tackle Leon Johnson could make the Broncos’ practice squad

Former Temple tackle Leon Johnson could make the Broncos’ practice squad

But the rookie tackle will have to overcome a recent history of injuries and show some technique improvement to earn a spot.

In a crowded safeties room, Dymonte Thomas knows what he must do to make the team

In a crowded safeties room, Dymonte Thomas knows what he must do to make the team

The second-year UDFA tells Mile High Report he is ready to build on his knowledge from last year and keep the No Fly Zone running strong. When Dymonte Thomas was called up from the practice squad last December to help the Broncos’ No Fly Zone face off against the Colts, Redskins and Chiefs, the rookie safety found out just how much faster the pro game is. “They were a lot bigger, faster and stronger than I had ever played,” Thomas recalled. The rookie had seen action in the preseason - even had a huge 58-yard pick-six against the Cardinals in the fourth game that remains Thomas’...

DeMarcus Ware to be ‘pass-rush consultant’ for Broncos

DeMarcus Ware to be ‘pass-rush consultant’ for Broncos

Per Adam Schefter, the Broncos are bringing in the NFL’s eighth all-time sack leader to give the edge rushers in Denver a few pointers. So awesome. “DeMarcus Ware is in the building. I repeat, DeMarcus Ware is in the building.” OK, maybe not right now, but according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the original sack-master will be at Dove Valley a few days every week/month to work with the Broncos’ edge rushers. Broncos are hiring former LB DeMarcus Ware as a pass-rush consultant on a part-time basis, per source. Ware will work a few days a week, a few times a month, trying to help...

DaeSean Hamilton could be Broncos’ 2018 slot receiver

DaeSean Hamilton could be Broncos’ 2018 slot receiver

The rook’s film study and work ethic are strong - and it appears to be showing already on the field. Name: DaeSean HamiltonPosition: WRHeight: 6-foot-1 Weight: 203Age: 23Experience: RCollege: Penn State DaeSean Hamilton was selected by the Broncos in the fourth round of the 2018 Draft and was considered a great get by John Elway, even after snagging another wide receiver in the second round in Courtland Sutton. NFL scout Mark Dulgerian noted that Hamilton and Sutton were both “legit starting potential” and called the Nittany Lion even more “pro ready.” “Compared to Courtland...

Sanders: Guys on offense making ‘big-time plays’ at OTAs

Sanders: Guys on offense making ‘big-time plays’ at OTAs

Still no pads, but still enough play-making going on for fans to start getting excited about the new season. Case Keenum is no dummy. He knows there are a lot of high expectations of him in Denver this year - among Broncos’ brass, Broncos’ fans and certainly Broncos’ players. So he has no intention of sliding through 2018 on his 2017 coattails or just leaving it up to “grindin’ on the field” to give him and his new team the same success he enjoyed with the Vikings last season. Instead, he’s pulling Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders into the film room with him almost every...

DeMarcus Ware back on familiar turf to give some hints on hunting QBs

DeMarcus Ware back on familiar turf to give some hints on hunting QBs

Batman and Robin were back together Wednesday as the future Hall-of-Famer spent time with his buddy Von Miller and the rest of the defense to offer insight on his specialty -sacking the quarterback. Good morning, Broncos Country! The Broncos’ defensive line got a little boost in expertise on Wednesday when former Spin Move Master and future Hall-of-Famer DeMarcus Ware stopped by OTAs for a little instruction. To give it, that is. And though most photo opps seemed to highlight Ware’s work with first-round draft pick Bradley Chubb, Shelby Harris was not about to miss his opportunity...

Ultimate Fan Guide: Memorial Day edition

Ultimate Fan Guide: Memorial Day edition

It’s about time to highlight one of our many members who is a veteran. Welcome to the first Ultimate Fan Guide of 2018 (which is because, of course, there was no postseason happening with this team last season - sigh.) But we are not here to lament last season. We are here to look forward to the new one! And so we are kicking off the 2018 UFG series on Memorial Day and featuring one of our many MHR members who has served in the military - USMCBroncofan. While for many of us Memorial Day is too often just a day celebrated for its three-day weekend and grilling opportunity, it is...

Broncos look to Sam Hinkie and his ‘trust the process’ mantra for a little more help

Broncos look to Sam Hinkie and his ‘trust the process’ mantra for a little more help

Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reported that the analytics guru with an MBA from Stanford and a three-year losing gig with NBA’s Sixers is consulting the Broncos. Happy Memorial Day, Broncos Country! The Broncos’ motto this offseason/season is “Accountability.” And apparently, they’re taking that a step further by bringing in the “Trust the Process” guy to help the Broncos understand via analytics why 5-11 happened. Because apparently inept quarterback play, muffed punts, dropped passes, and an inability to stop tight ends or running backs catching passes - not to mention poor...

Fixing the national anthem debate means reframing the conversation around the issue - racial injustice

Fixing the national anthem debate means reframing the conversation around the issue - racial injustice

The NFL has created this problem for itself - how can it claim the narrative back? The NFL owners approved on Wednesday a requirement for teams and their players to stand during the national anthem if they are on the field. Here is the NFL's new anthem policy pic.twitter.com/dStoHDOUNz— Ben Volin (@BenVolin) May 23, 2018 So there you have it. The NFL has just told its players and millions of fans “be patriotic and stand because we are too cowardly to address the real issue here.” No, you’re right. The NFL didn’t actually tell anyone that. They’re too afraid. Instead, it...

Veteran players feeling stronger than ever

Veteran players feeling stronger than ever

After offseason injury recovery, three contributing vets - Matt Paradis, Derek Wolfe and Domata Peko - are energized for a much more productive year. The list of positives this offseason keeps growing, and among those is the improved health of several key veteran players. Matt Paradis had surgery on both hips in 2017, which meant last year’s offseason was spent mostly doing rehab just to get ready to play Week 1. This year the fourth-year center who has not missed a snap in three years has actually been able to work out and build strength. “I’m doing great. It’s been a very exciting...

Keenum on being starter in offseason: ‘It feels different, feels good.’

Keenum on being starter in offseason: ‘It feels different, feels good.’

The Broncos’ new starting quarterback is embracing his role as starter as the team gets back into some real football. It’s been one day of Phase I of OTAs and fans are expectedly getting overly excited about potential and overly pessimistic about perceived trends. But if Broncos fans need another example of why having Case Keenum in the locker room is a great thing, his comments yesterday provided it. “It’s really early,” Keenum noted when asked about thoughts on Bill Musgrave’s offense. “I really enjoy the way that we work, the way that [Musgrave] calls plays and the energy...
