Broncos Advise Players On Social Media Use

Jun 12, 2017 8:08 AM

The Denver Broncos have had plenty of discussions with their players about social media and how to conduct themselves in the public eye.

The Broncos had to rekindle those discussions over the last week after safety Will Parks posted video of two practice plays on his Snapchat account. The plays, both incompletions thrown by quarterback Paxton Lynch, had been framed by some as criticisms of Lynch's efforts in practice.

They were also framed by many as a breach of football protocol.

"Social media is different than what I grew up around," Vance Joseph said. "It's their everyday lives. Sometimes, they fall into the trap of it being a normal deal, but this is work. This is a workplace. We can't share what we're doing here to the outside world, so to speak."

May 25, 2017 8:09 AM

John Elway is entering the final year of his contract with the Denver Broncos, but he's confident that a new deal will be signed before the start of the 2017 season.

Elway insists that there are no issues in negotiations to remain Denver's general manager and executive vice president of football operations.

"We're continuing to work at it. I don't see any problems with that. I look forward to being here with the Broncos for a long time," Elway said.

Elway added, "I don't think there will be any doubt" that the deal will get done by the time the Broncos begin the season Sept. 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Jamaal Charles Isn't A Lock To Make Broncos' Roster

May 18, 2017 9:07 AM

The Denver Broncos are planning for a committee approach at running back this season.

However, Jamaal Charles doesn't appear to be a lock to make the team's roster.

Mike Klis of KUSA puts Charles' odds of doing so at only 50-50. He has missed 24 games over the last two seasons and he only carries a minimum salary.

Charles is a free agent after spending his entire career with the Kansas City Chiefs.

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."
