Broncos, Briefly: Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Posted Jul 11, 2017

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

State your case: Is this Pat Bowlen’s time to reach Canton? (Clark Judge, Talk of Fame Network)
Under his direction the past 33 years, the Broncos won 343 games (an average of 10.39 per season), have 21 winning seasons, captured 13 division titles, appeared in seven Super Bowls and nine conference championship games and won three NFL titles. So what? So, since Bowlen bought the team in 1984, Denver has the highest winning percentage (.612) of any NFL franchise, passing the San Francisco 49ers after the 2015 season.

AFC West Q&A: Who is the rising star in this division? (ESPN)
Take a long look at Broncos outside linebacker Shane Ray. Ray finished second on the team last season with eight sacks even though he was a rotational player when DeMarcus Ware was healthy.

Sanders feels great after ditching fast food (Mike Klis, 9News)
By changing his diet, Sanders said he feels better now as he’s 30 years old and about to begin his eighth NFL season than he did coming out of SMU as a rookie in 2010.

How Broncos QBs spend summer vacation may decide the starter (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
To that end, Siemian and Lynch, along with the team's running backs, wide receivers and tight ends, will have a Manning-esque passing camp in Los Angeles in the coming days. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said at minicamp last month that "it's a priority for us to get together."
