Broncos, Briefly: Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Posted May 10, 2016

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Broncos.

Siemian: 'I think if I play my best football, I've got a chance.' (Jeff Legwold, ESPN.com)
The Broncos saw enough in the preseason and training camp, that they did not risk putting him on the practice squad where any team could have signed him. And in a stretch run toward a Super Bowl last season, with [Peyton] Manning trying to return from a foot injury, [Trevor] Siemian was the team's No. 2 quarterback.

T.J. Ward hears all the noise. The doubts, the lack of respect, the "one and done" talk involving the Broncos' attempt to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Paradis is now the veteran on the offensive line (Mike Klis, 9News)
Faster than dogs age, [Matt] Paradis has gone from kid center to senior member of the Broncos’ offensive line.

There are different philosophies surrounding when Lynch should get his chance to start (Jeff Legwold, ESPN.com)
As soon as [Paxton] Lynch took his first throws as the only quarterback at the Denver Broncos' rookie minicamp this past weekend, the questions about when the first-round pick would be ready to play began.

To his left, Denver Broncos center Matt Paradis will see some new faces. To his right, more new faces. Even his quarterback will be different.

Defense 'light years' ahead of where they were at this time last year (Adam Kinney, BSN Denver)
The Denver Broncos defense was good in 2015. So good it has been brought up in the conversation as one of the best units in the history of the NFL. Broncos safety T.J. Ward thinks the 2016 unit could be better.

It took barely nine months for Matt Paradis to go from being a new starter promoted to the first team during training camp to the longest-tenured starter in the group.

The Broncos defense is still looking for respect (Aric DiLalla)
The Denver Broncos sit just three months removed from a Super Bowl 50 victory, but safety T.J. Ward still feels he and the defense have plenty to prove.
