Broncos, Briefly: Friday, Dec. 29, 2017

Posted Dec 29, 2017

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

Should Steve Atwater be next safety inducted into the Hall of Fame (Ron Borges, Talk of Fame Network)
During an 11-year NFL career Atwater was named to eight Pro Bowls, won two Super Bowls rings and joined Green Bay’s LeRoy Butler as a starter on the All-Decade team of the ‘90s.

“Every year I’ve been here he’s played tremendously well for us against a lot of the No. 1 receivers from the other team,” said defensive coordinator and former defensive backs coach Joe Woods.

“I love telling people uncomfortable stuff,” Miller said. “I love keeping it brutally honest. I think that’s one of my best characteristics. I love keeping it brutally honest with not only my teammates but my family. I just like keeping it real. I guess it’s a little sick feeling I get from that, telling people the truth.”
 

Lynch's injured ankle could be 'a factor' against Chiefs (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
"I think that's a factor," Musgrave said after Thursday's practice. "... We've got to assess how his movement is. We want him to be able to get out of the way and defend himself out on the field.”

Broncos players offer support for embattled coach Vance Joseph (Troy Renck, KMGH)
"It was just a tough hand he was dealt. Coach VJ is one of my favorite coaches I have ever played for. I respect him for never changing.”

Selfless, not selfish: It's time to celebrate Peko (Aric DiLalla, DenverBroncos.com)
You won’t find a nose tackle in the running for MVP — and you’d be hard-pressed to find more than a couple players at the position who are household names.
