Broncos, Briefly: Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Posted May 25, 2016

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

C.J. is looking to start faster in 2016 (Jeff Legwold, ESPN.com)
For all running back C.J. Anderson has done with the Denver Broncos, he does not have a career 100-yard rushing game before Nov. 1 in any of his three previous seasons.

Lynch hopes to earn the starting job with his daily effort (Mark Kiszla, Denver Post)
Earn it. Two little words. But they served as a reminder every time the ballyhooed rookie broke the Denver huddle.
 

Broncos quarterbacks all hit the field on the first day of OTAs (Troy Renck, Denver Post)
The Broncos began organized team activities with a story as simple as 1-2-3. Multiple positions feature vacancies, but one demands the most attention: quarterback. Three players took snaps Tuesday as the competition began in full view of the media for the first time since Peyton Manning’s retirement and Brock Osweiler’s departure to Houston.
 

News and notes from the first day of OTAs (Mike Klis, 9News)
After DeMarcus Ware was sidelined twice, for a total of five games, with a back injury last season, the Denver Broncos’ pass rusher missed the first day of organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday with a back issue.
 

The playbook and footwork and the first obstacles Lynch will need to overcome (Jeff Legwold, ESPN.com)
Lynch flashed the enthusiasm and the power arm that the Broncos liked so much before they moved up five spots in the first round of the draft to select him. In team drills, Lynch threw what would have been a 60-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jordan Taylor at one point, then sprinted downfield as Taylor reeled in the pass after an initial bobble.

Sanchez makes a statement by showing up for the first day of OTAs (Arnie Stapleton, Associated Press)
Mark Sanchez wasn't about to let a weight room mishap keep him from running the Denver Broncos' offense when the Super Bowl champs began OTAs.

Broncos’ defensive backs impressed with Lynch’s first practice (Paul Klee, Colorado Springs Gazette)
The first rule of the New Quarterback Club is you don't talk about the New Quarterback.

Talib: “I've seen a lot of rookie quarterbacks come out and not look that good on their first day.” (Lindsay Jones, USA Today)
Cornerback Aqib Talib, whose first-team defense was watching from the sideline when Lynch launched his touchdown pass to Taylor, called out to the rookie several times during the practice, praising Lynch after a couple strong throws by the quarterback.

All you need to know from the first day of OTAs (Andrew Mason)
But as the 2016 edition of the Broncos put on helmets for the first time Tuesday, Head Coach Gary Kubiak had a simple message: Last year is done. The moment it over.

C.J. likes Booker’s confidence heading into the rookie’s first season (Aric DiLalla)
In 2014, C.J. Anderson became just the fifth undrafted running back to make a Pro Bowl. And his own success story explains why he’s not concerned with Devontae Booker’s comments at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere last weekend in Los Angeles. Booker said he wasn’t in Denver to “carry pads” but rather to “take someone’s job.”
