Broncos Finish Training Camp

Posted Aug 15, 2014

The Broncos finished their three-week training camp heading into Sunday's game against the 49ers, with players intent on maintaining the same mentality going forward.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos wrapped up their final day of training camp Friday, concluding three weeks practicing together, but they'll keep the same "business-like" mindset going forward, as tight end Jacob Tamme said.

Effort and intensity were consistently high at the Dove Valley practice fields during camp. "We got a lot of good work in," strong safety T.J. Ward said. "A lot of progress was made."

Although training camp may have concluded, more than one player said they'll keep that training camp frame of mind.

"It's a little bit shorter day, but the mindset is the same," Ward said. "[We'll] come out here to work every day, improve, and you should come to practice with a goal to be better. That's how you should approach it, that's how I approach it and I think that's how we've been approaching it as a team."

After Sunday's preseason game against the 49ers, the team will progress to "an adjusted in-season schedule," Broncos Head Coach John Fox said.

Outside the change in preparation, breaking camp seems to be an effect more in name and sleeping location than anything as players continue to bring a strong level of commitment and effort to preseason practices.

Though the mentality will carry over to post-camp practices, one of the major changes for the players will be the benefit of returning home to their own beds after spending the last few weeks sleeping at the Ramada Inn.

For Tamme and Ward, sleeping in their own beds is what they're looking forward to most.

But Von Miller might return home dreaming of the bed he'll leave behind. "I like my bed at the Ramada. And it was closer," he added. "My bed at home is actually a little harder than the Ramada bed, so it was cool."
