Broncos, Briefly: Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2018

Posted Jan 23, 2018

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

Broncos must gauge whether QB prospects can handle starting as rookies (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
"Obviously it's not ideal, but I would say this: I did it," Elway said of playing as a rookie.

Wyoming QB Josh Allen ready for close-up with Broncos at Senior Bowl: “I want to prove I belong” (Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Post)
As Allen glanced over during his three-touchdown performance that afternoon, he saw the Broncos’ plans for 2018 beginning to take shape.
