Remember how slews of season ticket holders lost out on a chance to see the Broncos play in SB 48?
Those mo$t loyal of fans were so appreciated by the organization that they had to enter a lottery for the chance to attend the big game (for as little as $850 per ticket).
Losers of the lottery were offered the "opportunity" to pay more than $11K per pair to travel to the Armpit of America and see the Broncos get embarrassed on a world stage.
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.
The Broncos' 2014 regular season schedule has been released.
It is as follows:
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.
Peyton Manning and Adam Gase recently spent two days visiting with Nick Saban and his staff, said Saban on Thursday.
According to the Alabama coach, he was just one of several to have hosted the brains behind Denver's recordbreaking offense.
Said Saban of the reason behind Manning's visit:
Former Broncos draftee and SB 33 champion Chris Banks passed away on Wednesday at the age of 41.
According to the sheriff's office in Harford County, Maryland, the body of the 1996 seventh-rounder was found on Wednesday morning.
His death is reportedly thought to have been of natural causes.
As first reported by Jay Glazer, the Broncos have agreed to terms on a new three-year contract with John Fox.
According to Mike Klis, the deal will pay him $5M-6M per year.
The 59-year-old coach was entering the last year of his four-year contract, but John Elway had made clear throughout the offseason that a new deal was forthcoming.
According to multiple reports, Champ Bailey has agreed to a two-year deal with the Saints.
Denver cut the legendary corner a month ago to avoid paying him a $1M roster bonus and $9M salary.
Having already signed Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Trindon Holliday, the Giants continued their raid of Denver's roster on Wednesday.
The G-Men have agreed to terms with defensive end Robert Ayers on a two-year deal with a reported $4M total value and $1.75M in guarantees.
Denver made Ayers the 18th-overall pick in 2009 with their second of two first-round picks that year.
