Jerrah isn’t rolling out the red carpet for Raiders

Good Morning, Broncos fans! So, are the Raiders really considering a move to San Antonio?

Probably not, but the story still drew a response from the mayor of Oakland.

Jerry Jones doesn't seem to feel threatened by the idea.

San Antonio hoping to woo Raiders

As first reported by the San Antonio Express-News, Raiders owner Mark Davis is considering a relocation to Texas.

Earlier this month, Davis met for two or three days with a handful of city officials about a temporary move into the Alamodome.

According to the report, the stadium could be ready to host NFL games as soon as next year, with Davis expecting a new stadium a few years after that.

Harris activated from PUP, aiming for Week 1

A day after his surgically repaired knee was cleared by Dr. James Andrews, Chris Harris was activated from Denver's PUP list.

The fourth-year corner is not expected to play during the preseason, instead aiming for the regular season opener against Indy.

You Got Served: T.J. Ward is going to be huge

Happy Tuesday, friends. Today I want to talk about the player acquisition who I think may end up being most impactful for the Broncos this season.

Of the three big ticket defenders the Broncos signed – DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib, and T.J. Ward - it’s Ward who portends to affect the Broncos’ play on the field most consistently.

If for no other reason, it’s easy to make that prediction simply based upon the fact that he was on the field for 97% of the defensive snaps in games he played for the Browns in 2013. (That was all 16 of them, for the record.)

Anderson slimmed down a bit for second season

Good Morning, Broncos fans! All offseason long, it's been suggested that Montee Ball is locked in as Denver's starting running back.

For his part, Montee says he's far more confident heading into his sophomore campaign, and he hopes to break the 250-carry barrier.

The 23-year-old admits that the length of the NFL season wore him down a bit, even though his best performances came down the stretch run.

Those clever Pats are at it again

For the third time in the last four years, the Patriots have essentially stolen a player off another team's roster.

New England claimed running back Tyler Gaffney off waivers from Carolina, who'd intended to place their 2014 sixth-rounder on IR with a torn meniscus.

Harris cleared; Ware reportedly has bone bruise

Chris Harris was fully cleared by Dr. James Andrews on Monday, although it's unclear when the Broncos will activate him from their PUP list.

According to Mike Klis, Harris is not likely to see any action in Denver's four preseason games.

Ware, Austin banged up in stadium practice

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Sunday's practice at SAF@MH was mostly about the red zone.

There were a pair of apparently minor injuries, as DeMarcus Ware suffered a leg bruise, and Marvin Austin banged up his hand.

Sly Williams continues to thrive, while Shaq Barrett and Corey Nelson are standing out among the backups.

More players dropping like flies

Good Morning, Broncos fans! As we'd discussed yesterday, the next several weeks will be all about staying healthy, for the Broncos and every other team.

As John Fox told Arnie Stapleton:

Really, regardless of what time of the year, as a head coach and an organization, you hold your breath. Football is combative and injuries are part of the game, whether it's the offseason, training camp, regular season or even in the playoffs.

Welcome back, Wolfeman

On Day 2 of training camp, Derek Wolfe blew past Ryan Clady and dropped Montee Ball for a three-yard loss. It’s just one play, without pads, but it’s great to see the man getting his old form back.

Andrew Mason noted that it was more Wolfe showing skill than Clady trying to work back to his form. At the same time, DeMarcus Ware was apparently abusing Chris Clark at RT.

Consider this: One DL formation could have Terrance Knighton at nose tackle, Wolfe and Malik Jackson at defensive tackle, with Ware and Von Miller attacking from the edges. It’s just one option, but it’s one that would have to make a lot of quarterbacks nervous.
