Broncos, Briefly: Thursday, July 5, 2018

6. The Broncos win the Peyton Manning Sweepstakes (2012): It was shocking enough that a legend like Peyton Manning would even hit free agency.

5. Bradley Chubb, LB, Broncos: Starts the season at outside linebacker because of Shane Ray's wrist surgery and doesn't give up the job. Posts 10 sacks.

One of the greatest linebackers to ever step on a football field, Derrick Thomas was an absolute machine. There is almost no doubt that John Elway would list him among the toughest guys he ever faced.

What's in the past is in the past, but don't be surprised if moving forward the Broncos give [De'Angelo] Henderson a larger role in the offense. At Coastal Carolina, he proved that despite his 5-foot-7, 208-pound size, he could pound the rock between the tackles and hold up to the subsequent beating.

It remains to be seen whether that will translate to the NFL, but I wouldn't be completely surprised to see Henderson win the starting running back job in year two. He's an extremely hard worker.
