Broncos, Briefly: Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2017

Posted Dec 20, 2017

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

Broncos' Miller, Talib get Pro Bowl nod; Harris Jr. snubbed (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
[Chris] Harris [Jr.] is a three-time Pro Bowl selection who should have added a fourth to his résumé this season. He is one of the league’s most unique players because of his ability to line up either in the slot or on the outside and play at an elite level in each of those areas. Harris has rarely been targeted this season, which is why he has just two interceptions. But few, if any, players are as consistently sound, including those selected to the Pro Bowl in front of him.

John Elway expects Broncos’ QB decision to be made at end of week (Nicki Jhabvala, Denver Post)
“I anticipate it being at the end of the week,” Broncos general manager/president John Elway reiterated Tuesday on the team’s partnering station, Orange and Blue 760. “Find out where Paxton is, see where his health is. But I’m sure they’ll get together at the end of the week and do their evaluation and decide who’s going to start after that.”
