ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Broncos still have fond memories of Santa Clara, California.
Just over a year ago, Denver won Super Bowl 50 in Levi's Stadium with a 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
So, they're going back.
For the third year in a row, the Broncos will partner with the San Francisco 49ers for joint preseason practices. Unlike the previous two seasons, however, the Broncos will head to Santa Clara to practice in the days ahead of their preseason contest with the Niners.
The Broncos hosted the Niners at UCHealth Training Center in 2015 and 2016. The Houston Texans visited for the same purpose in 2014.
In 2016, the Broncos practiced against the Niners on Wednesday and Thursday, had the day off Friday and played San Francisco on Saturday evening.
The specific dates of this year's practices and game have yet to be set.
This year will represent a change for the Broncos, though. Denver hasn't traveled to an opposing team's facility for joint preseason practices since the team went to Dallas in 2007.
