Broncos, Briefly: Sunday, March 19, 2017

Posted Mar 19, 2017

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

To lift offense, Broncos know they must improve the running game (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
But in the wake of their first playoff miss since 2010, much of the Broncos' reconstruction on offense has been about what happens when the team doesn't throw the ball. Because it was their dismal running game last season that turned their offense into a stagnant affair with quarterbacks who had no way to slow down the pass-rushers chasing them.

Football, hockey and rings: Broncos OT Schofield and USA Hockey’s Kendall Coyne found love in sports (Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Post)
He is Michael Schofield, the Broncos’ right tackle and third-round draft pick in 2014. She is Kendall Coyne, an Olympic silver-medalist with the U.S. women’s national hockey team. And this is a love story that began in a gym at 9 a.m. on a weekday in a Chicago suburb and is renewed most weekday mornings at this gym and at nearby ice arenas.

Good, bad and uncertainty of free agency (Mike Klis, 9News)
The men up front may not sell tickets. But they can complete a championship team.
