The Broncos signed a kicker!!!

Competition, baby!

Okay, maybe not. Mitch Ewald is obviously here as camp fodder to give Matt Prater some rest.

Do skyrocketing TV revenues have players patient for new deals?

Good Morning, Broncos fans! So, Demaryius Thomas isn't in any particular rush to sign a new contract.

Is it his $3.275M salary for 2014 that has him at ease? Could be.

According to John Elway, the agent for Julius Thomas hasn't even bothered to submit a counter to the team's recent contract offer.

Broncos release Dreessen

In a long expected move, the Broncos have released tight end Joel Dreessen with one year remaining on his three-year contract.

Dreessen failed a physical after having had three knee surgeries over the past two offseasons.

The Coloradan and CSU alum might have been a cap casualty anyway, but his knee issues are apparently severe enough for him to have missed the season.

Broncos reportedly no closer to deals with Thomases

Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! A week ago, John Elway relaxed his deadline for extending Demaryius and Julius Thomas.

Having originally set the beginning of camp as his target date, Elway told Lindsay Jones that he was willing to negotiate into the preseason.

But according to Mike Klis, there's been little or no progress toward a contract extension with either player.

You Got Served: The running game is coming back

Anytime a person makes a football statement about “how the game is played today,” or “that won’t work in the modern NFL,” it's safe to assume that person probably doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

They’re probably being myopic, and they’re definitely being naïve, because nothing stays the same for very long, nothing is ever really passé, and at the same time, there’s really nothing new under the sun.

In a schematic sense, the NFL is, and always has been, extremely dynamic, in a very particular way; it’s entirely reactive and cyclical.

That may seem disappointing, but there's some logic to being reactive; if you don’t react to the changing schematic landscape, you are probably the Oakland Raiders of 2003 to 2012.
