The Broncos have assigned jersey numbers to the rest of their offseason acquisitions, while a few incumbents have changed numbers.
T.J. Ward (43), Emmanuel Sanders (10), Will Montgomery (64), and the players who signed future contracts now have numbers.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! If you're into schedule overanalysis, today's your lucky day.
Specific to the Broncos, they have opened as seven-point favorites over the Colts for Week 1.
John Elway says they'll have to get off to a quick start, since they open against three teams that made the playoffs in 2013.
The Broncos' 2014 regular season schedule has been released.
It is as follows:
Broncos schedule starting to take shape
According to Tom Donohue of 1070thefan.com, the Broncos will open the season on Sept. 7 with a prime time matchup at home against the Indianapolis Colt. It has also been reported by multiple sources that the Broncos will have four additional prime time games, including two on Monday Night Football.
Presumably, this means Denver will play at least once more on Sunday Night Football, plus once on a Thursday night.
Report: QB Caleb Hanie signs one-year deal with Cowboys
One possible reason for this signing is that Dallas still doesn’t know if last year’s backup, Kyle Orton, will return to the team or instead will retire.
It's often said that backup quarterbacks have the best gigs going. Orton is set to draw a $3.25M salary, which would be the second biggest of his career (Denver, $7.4M in 2011).
Who knows - perhaps the idea of another year spent working for Jerrah Jones is just too much for old Kyle to swallow.
Broncos have every intention of picking up Von Miller option
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Broncos have every intention to exercise the option. Since they have until May 3 to do it, there’s no reason to do it prematurely.
Quick, someone alert Denver's HOF voter!
Good Morning, Broncos fans! As we've discussed here before, it's been a particularly rough go for the Bills and their fans of late.
The team's founder and owner, Ralph Wilson, passed away, presumably accelerating a move out of Buffalo.
HOF passer Jim Kelly, who is among those trying to keep the team in Western New York, is facing a grueling cancer battle.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Wait, did we suggest yesterday that there would be little in the way of news out of Dove Valley? Whoops.
Obviously, Orlando Franklin's reported move to left guard qualifies as enough big news for one day.
But we also forgot that the regular season schedule is going to be released soon - perhaps Wednesday or Thursday.
The Broncos have informed Orlando Franklin that he'll be shifting over to left guard, at least temporarily.
According to Mike Klis, the move is as much as anything about keeping Chris Clark in the lineup.
Clark, who filled in admirably for Ryan Clady at left tackle last year, will presumably take over for Franklin at right tackle.
Mitch Unrein has signed his RFA tender, while Tony Carter, Duke Ihenacho, and Brandon Marshall have signed their ERFA tenders.
The four players received their tenders in early March, and they signed them in time to participate in Monday's start of the Broncos' conditioning program.
