Mark Sanchez Showcases Guitar Skills Near Santa Monica Pier

Aug 24, 2016 3:03 PM

Mark Sanchez is in the middle of the preseason right now with the Broncos but he joined DraftKings in Santa Monica earlier this summer to display his skills as a (pretty good) guitar player.

While set up as a street performer near the Santa Monica Pier, Sanchez serenaded anybody and everybody walking by, taking song requests of all genres.

Although we’re all slightly disappointed he didn’t know how to pull off “Hollaback Girl” by Gwen Stefani, it’s clear that Sanchez has some serious skills with his six-string… And his guitar case has the tips to prove it.

Broncos To Start Trevor Siemian At Quarterback In 3rd Preseason Game

Aug 22, 2016 5:59 PM

The Denver Broncos will start Trevor Siemian at quarterback for their third preseason game this week against the Rams.

The Broncos open the season on Sept. 8th against the Panthers.

Siemian will get the last best look with the other starters before Gary Kubiak decides who will enter 2016 as the starting quarterback.

"Trevor will start the game this week," Kubiak said Monday. "They're all going to play, and the biggest thing I have to take a look at, too, is how I'm going to play our starters as far as how I get the rotation going. ... It's down to the nitty-gritty here. ... I'm going to make a decision next week, and we're going to go to work."

John Elway Feels Broncos Have Good Enough Team Around QBs

Aug 17, 2016 8:14 AM

The Denver Broncos haven't settled on a starting quarterback for their second preseason game, let alone the regular season.

Gary Kubiak said Tuesday that the competition between Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian has "been very close" and John Elway says the team is planning to wait through the third week of the preseason to "see if somebody jumps out at you."

Rookie Paxton Lynch is believed to be in the running to start as well.

"The good thing is we've got a good enough team around them," Elway said. "We'll be able to run the ball, and we won't throw them out there and say, 'You guys have to go win this.' Do your job, make good decisions and keep the team in position to win. And that's really all we're asking of that position right now."

Vance Walker Likely Out For 2016 With Torn ACL

Aug 15, 2016 10:23 PM

Vance Walker will likely miss the entire 2016 season for the Denver Broncos with a torn right ACL.

Walker was expected to nail down a starting role as the replacement for 2015 breakout star Malik Jackson, who signed a mega contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars in March.

"We think the world of Vance and he was having a great camp," Gary Kubiak said, via the team's official website. "We'll support him through his recovery, and he'll come back stronger than ever."

The Broncos will turn to former Texans defensive end Jared Crick, former Colts veteran Billy Winn and second-round draft pick Adam Gotsis alongside Sylvester Williams and Derek Wolfe on the defensive line.

Devontae Booker Stealing First-Team Reps With Broncos

Aug 15, 2016 7:53 AM

Denver Broncos rookie running back Devontae Booker has been stealing some work with the first-team offense as of late.

"Probably just the coaches wanting me to get more reps with the 1s," Booker told Mike Klis of KUSA-TV. "Felt good about it and just continuing to go about the work."

Booker has quickly earned the trust of Denver's coaching staff with running backs aide Eric Studesville saying: "I'll put him in the game right now."

The Broncos have C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman returning at the position.

Von Miller Ready To Play, Nears Full Participation

Aug 13, 2016 11:51 AM

The Denver Broncos have taken a slow-and-steady approach with Von Miller in training camp after he missed the offseason program due to prolonged contract negotiations. 

“I’m ready to go out there and play," Miller said this week. “But the Von I know I can be, the Von I want to be, I’m not there yet."

Miller has yet to participate in a full training camp practice and was one of four Pro Bowl defenders -- Chris Harris Jr., DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib were the others -- the Broncos held out of their preseason opener in Chicago. But as this week drew to a close, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Miller was closing in on his usual practice workload.

The Broncos’ third preseason game, the one where the starters usually play into the third quarter, is Aug. 27 against the Los Angeles Rams.

“I’d like to think that if I keep working, I’ll be all right," Miller said. “When San Francisco comes into town, I should be right where I want to be at."

Mark Sanchez To Start Preseason Opener For Broncos

Aug 9, 2016 4:14 PM

The Denver Broncos have announced that Mark Sanchez will start their preseason opener.

Gary Kubiak plans to let Sanchez play a quarter, let Trevor Siemian play the second quarter and give first-round pick Paxton Lynch the full second half.

"The majority of this game is going to be about our twos and our threes," Kubiak said. "I think this is the game to look at all those young players. The more I can play [Lynch], the more I can find out about him. If the game is rhythmic like I hope, then hopefully he plays a whole half. We've kind of been practicing that way, too; he practices a lot at the end of practice. So we'll keep that same rhythm."

"No. 12 is really, really stepping up," Kubiak said. "He's making some progress here."

Emmanuel Sanders 'Not Trying To Break The Bank' In Contract Talks

Jul 29, 2016 9:00 AM

Emmanuel Sanders, who appears to be the next player on the verge of a contract extension with the Denver Broncos, says he isn't shooting for the stars.

"It's not frustrating. It's actually a blessing," Sanders said of the ongoing talks. "We're talking millions and millions of dollars that I can earn just by the game that I love. At the end of the day, I'm looking forward to it, but I know you guys want to know the answers to that, where are we at.

"We're trying to find that middle ground of saying, you know what, this is a fair deal for me and for the Denver Broncos. I said it from Day One -- I'm not trying to break the bank. I want to be here. But I also want a fair deal, and I want a fair deal for the production I've been putting out, so we'll see how it goes."

Sanders is entering the final year of the deal he signed in 2014, and is scheduled to make $5.6 million this season.
