Broncos, Briefly: Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018

Posted Jan 4, 2018

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

Why Atwater, Butler deserve more from Hall-of-Fame voters (Clark Judge, Talk of Fame Sports Network)
It’s not simply that these guys are qualified; it’s that their resumes demand the attention they didn’t receive. Each was a Super Bowl winner. In fact, Atwater won twice. Each was a multiple All-Pro and Pro Bowler. Each was a team leader. Each was inducted into his team’s Ring of Honor or Hall of Fame. And, best of all, each was an all-decade choice.

Broncos 'jumped at the opportunity' to coach in Senior Bowl (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
[T]he Broncos got one of their offseason wishes, which is a work week at the Senior Bowl for the team's coaching staff. For the first time since 1989, the Broncos will handle coaching duties for one of the teams at the college all-star game, which features many of the best senior prospects in the 2018 draft.

Coaching the Senior Bowl hands Broncos important opportunity (Aric DiLalla, DenverBroncos.com)
Hundreds of NFL personnel members will arrive in Mobile, Alabama, later this month to see the next, best NFL players — and Vance Joseph, John Elway and the Broncos will have a few of the best seats available.

Denver Broncos staff will get good look at CSU receiver Michael Gallup (Miles Blumhardt, Coloradoan)
Gallup is CSU's lone participant in the bowl. Rosters have not yet been selected for the North and South teams. Houston Texans staff will coach the South team. Coaching staffs will get an in-depth look at players during practices Jan. 23-25. Full rosters for both teams will be announced Jan. 17.
