Broncos, Briefly: Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Posted May 24, 2016

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

Some of the lingering offseason questions will start to be answered today (Troy Renck, Denver Post)
The Broncos return to organized team activities Tuesday as defending champions with multiple questions. First, the Super Bowl MVP won’t be at OTAs. The sides have talked occasionally but without a contract, all-pro outside linebacker Von Miller will not attend as he seeks a long-term deal. In this session, coaches can work with players, run them through plays and drills. The media even get a peek when the workout begins Tuesday.

With organized team activities (OTAs) beginning Tuesday, Miller’s absence gives the Broncos’ offense a chance to pull closer to even with its top-ranked defense.
 

Roby considered the defense’s 12th starter on defense (Jeff Legwold, ESPN.com)
And the Broncos have always felt good about Roby, the 31st pick of the 2014 draft, in that mix. They've treated Roby like he is a starter, and it's not hard to see why. He's had two seasons with at least 40 tackles despite the fact that he finds himself behind two Pro Bowl cornerbacks in Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr.  on the depth chart.

Behind-the-scenes from the NFL’s Rookie Premier (Emily Kaplan, MMQB.com)
Lynch, who boasted the night before that he would sign so many he could win three pairs of Mamba shoes, tempered his expectations. Among water bottles, empty bags of peanuts and stacks of unopened boxes, Lynch sighs. “This is more exhausting than rookie camp!”
