Broncos, Briefly: Tuesday, May 17, 2016

Posted May 17, 2016

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Broncos.

Broncos have three tight ends who will see the field extensively in 2016 (Cameron Wolfe, Denver Post)
The leading contenders are returners Jeff Heuerman and Virgil Green, along with newcomer Garrett Graham. Each comes with questions, but each could be the go-to guy. How will they make their cases to Kubiak, offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and the rest of the coaching staff?

The Broncos, again, redecorated their facilities Monday, adding two more championship banners to the collection in the lobby of their Englewood headquarters.
 

Sanchez injures his thumb on his non-throwing hand (Mike Klis, 9News)
The Broncos veteran quarterback underwent a surgical procedure Saturday to repair a torn ligament in his left, non-throwing hand. Sanchez is expected to be out at least a week, putting his return at least a few days into the team's OTAs.

Experience can be a difficult, sometimes cranky, teacher. Shane Ray knows because he found his rookie season with the Denver Broncos to be more of a struggle than expected.

Heuerman used his ‘redshirt’ year to learn the offense, attend team meetings (Arnie Stapleton, Associated Press)
A week after getting drafted last year, the big tight end from Ohio State blew out his left ACL at the Denver Broncos' rookie minicamp. It was the same injury that Jaguars first-rounder Dante Fowler Jr. had sustained just 24 hours earlier.

Broncos sign fifth round pick Connor McGovern (Josh Alper, Pro Football Talk)
Fifth-round offensive lineman Connor McGovern is the latest member of the eight-player draft class to agree to his four-year rookie deal with the club. McGovern’s signing leaves the team with only first-round quarterback Paxton Lynch and second-round defensive lineman Adam Gotsis left without contracts.

Expect big things from second-year tight end Jeff Heuerman (Sam Cowhick, BSN Denver)
The tight end is a staple in all of Gary Kubiak’s offenses and now that he has had a year to convert his roster, one, two and sometimes three of them will be on the field at once. One tight end, in particular, will be highly anticipated and yet what he will provide is still an unknown.

Check out what’s on DenverBroncos.com:

Green primed to take on an extended role in 2016 (Andrew Mason)
He's known as a blocking tight end, but this year, Green sees the chance to establish himself as a complete tight end who can be a threat in the passing game.

Familiarity with Kubiak’s offense a big plus for Graham (Aric DiLalla)
When Head Coach Gary Kubiak made the transition from the Houston Texans to the Denver Broncos, the results were nothing short of spectacular. Tight end Garrett Graham hopes to replicate the same success.
