Being Broncos' backup would be huge step up for Kelly (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
The Denver Broncos have bigger issues than backup quarterback to contend with following a 5-11 finish in 2017. But make no mistake: One of the most watched items of the summer might be Chad Kelly's pursuit to be Mr. Relevant, or at least Mr. Making Significant Progress.

Karl Mecklenburg thinks Rulon Jones deserves the Broncos’ Ring of Fame call (Gil Whiteley and Mark Jackson, Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7)
“Rulon Jones should be there,” Mecklenburg said. “Rulon was the most dominant pass rusher of his time. I made a living off of them double teaming him. Some of the decision making is hard to figure. They want it to be exclusive, yet they want to honor the guys that were instrumental in the success of the Broncos through the years.”

*The formula for competition at Broncos organized team activities a year ago featured a confident defense against a shaky offense. Edge rusher Derek Wolfe said: “We felt like we were going into the same old thing — defense was going to pick up a lot of the slack, this and that.” *

Enter quarterback Case Keenum, and through just one week of OTAs, the tune has changed.
