Sanders: Paxton Lynch No Longer 'Like That Deer In The Headlights'

Apr 27, 2017 10:22 AM

The Denver Broncos enter the offseason with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch competing at quarterback.

Emmanuel Sanders says it wasn't much of a battle last year. Siemian won the starting job ahead of the 2016 season and started 14 games.

"Being a young guy last year, Paxton was like that deer in the headlights, walking around big-eyed," Sanders said.

Sanders says he's seen Lynch grow into a "more relaxed" player.

"It's going to be interesting to see how Paxton takes his second year and hopefully get that Memphis swag back, seeing those two guys compete and seeing who wins the job," Sanders said.

Von Miller: 2017 'Gonna Be My Best Year'

Apr 12, 2017 8:28 AM

Von Miller, the MVP of Super Bowl 50, is expecting this coming season to be his best yet.

"I pretty much didn't have an offseason last year with so much stuff," Miller said of last year's holdout that kept him away from the team until mid-July. "I wasn't gonna use that as an excuse, but I lost by one vote [in DPOY voting]. The year before, I don't know how many votes it was that I lost by. I got close this year. ... This is part of life, I'm not just gonna stay stuck in the past."

Kahlil Mack of the Oakland Raiders won the honors.

"I feel like this Von coming up is going to be my best Von that I put forward. It's gonna be my best year, that's what I'm going for," Miller said. "I have a full offseason, full OTAs, I'm gonna be here every single day training. It's not all luck. ... Now it's just all football. I'm here, I'm settled in. It's time to go play."

Broncos 'To Stay The Course' With Young Quarterbacks

Mar 28, 2017 8:36 AM

The Denver Broncos are confident in their young quarterbacks, according to John Elway.

"Like we've said, we really feel good about the two young ones that we have," Elway said. "Trevor [Sieman] did a good job for us last year and Paxton was young. The plan is to stay the course there and see what's available in the draft. We'll go from there.

"But we like both. Paxton [Lynch] was a first-rounder last year for a reason, and then Trevor came in and played very well. It'll be a great competition between them in the spring."
