Broncos, Briefly: Saturday, May 14, 2016

Posted May 14, 2016

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Broncos.

Sanchez continues his community involvement, scores dates to the prom (Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Post)
Friday evening, [Mark] Sanchez returned to prom, but this time he was accompanied by more than 100 teenage patients from Children's Hospital Colorado.

Broncos 2016 questions are all on offense (Troy Renck, Denver Post)
The Broncos face fewer questions, but one overriding issue hangs over them like an ACME anvil in a Roadrunner cartoon: Who is the quarterback? Not knowing who or how the quarterback will play overwhelms any discussion about the Broncos.

Ray changes up his training by adding in MMA (Cameron Wolfe, Denver Post)
Anthony Johnson, Ultimate Fighting Championship's second-ranked light heavyweight contender, is Shane Ray's opponent on a cool March morning in Boca Raton, Fla., at XPE Sports Academy.

Klis takes a shot at multiple topics, including replacing Peyton Manning (Mike Klis, 9News)
In my opinion, [Peyton] Manning at Super Bowl’s end had no more left to give as an NFL quarterback. He truly left it all on the field. Here’s hoping he keeps that get-up-and-go spirit in the next stage of his life. 

One Bronco CFA is trying to follow in his father’s footsteps (Pat Graham, Associated Press)
Kyle Kragen was added to the roster on May 6 as a college free agent. In 1989, his father, Greg, became a Pro Bowler in Phillips' system during the defensive guru's first go-around with the Broncos.

The 2015 Draft-Day trades are reexamined (Chris Burke, Sports Illustrated)
The Broncos had the benefit of easing [Shane] Ray into duty last season behind DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller. He produced 4.0 sacks despite limited playing time and a knee injury, and he is primed to take on a larger role for 2016. The Lions, on the other hand, leaned on Tomlinson, and he turned in a predictably up-and-down effort (more of the latter than the former).

Check out what’s on DenverBroncos.com:

Davis seeks to be the next under-the-radar Broncos’ contributor in 2016 (Andrew Mason)
There is time for the Broncos to add another veteran to the mix at inside linebacker to replace Trevathan, who departed for Chicago in free agency two months ago. But for now, Todd Davis, Corey Nelson and Zaire Anderson are the options, with no others added during the draft.

Booker and Simmons put pen to paper (Andrew Mason)
The signings of draft picks continued Friday morning when safety Justin Simmons and running back Devontae Booker signed their rookie contracts.
