Good Morning, Broncos fans! The draft is still a week and a half away, so that means Donald Sterling and his racism are still bigger than any NFL story.
Sterling's Clippers offered a mild protest before their game on Sunday, by turning their warm-ups inside out.
This morning, Kevin Johnson added that NBA players are demanding "the most severe sanctions" possible be handed down to Sterling. But as that Deadspin piece suggests, there's only so much that can be done to a billionaire.
Mike Klis says the Broncos "plan to" exercise their 2015 option on Von Miller this week; Terrance Knighton tells Klis he will honor the latter half of his two-year contract without a holdout.
Jeff Legwold floats the ridiculous notion that patience in the draft is more important at certain junctures than at others.
A summary of the key points from Peter King's latest MMQB column:
- Owner Tom Benson is donating $5M to the ALS foundation of former Saints player Steve Gleason. Bravo.
- PK thinks there's a good chance Atlanta trades up to #1 or #2 so they can draft Jadeveon Clowney.
- King finally pushes back against the ridiculous standards set for Johnny Manziel's social life.

Trend hunter extraordinaire John Clayton says that the really shitty teams of 2013 are trying to get to .500 this year, and that this is something new. First off, does anyone really try to be a .500 team, and second, if that's even the case, what would make this a new phenomenom?
