Broncos, Briefly: Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018


Maybe it was the 5-11 finish last season, and maybe it was the 10 sacks -- Miller's lowest total since his injury-shortened 2013 season. Or maybe it's just that Miller has noticed what most players notice at some point, that "time goes fast, things change and you don't want to say you didn't get everything you could out of it."

"Leaving a legacy, what guys will say when I walk out of the room, what guys say when I'm done playing," Miller said. "That's the type of stuff that matters to me now. How much we can do as a team, how much I can do to help my team."

"So far, he's doing a great job," coach Vance Joseph said. "I can't say what more he can do. Obviously, we've got two more games, so continue to play well. Things do change in this league, but right now, he is our backup quarterback and he's done a fine job for us. He's been really competitive, he's played fast and he's played with confidence. He's moved the ball. What more can you ask from a player? Our thoughts are always you earn your job on the field. He's doing that. Kudos to Chad."

Broncos defensive lineman Clinton McDonald knows how to rush the quarterback. His 18 sacks over the last five years for Seattle and Tampa Bay are evidence.

"That's been his greatest strength in his career," Broncos coach Vance Joseph said after practice Tuesday.

But in McDonald's preseason debut last week against Chicago, it was his play against the run that excited Joseph most.

"That's been part of his game that wasn't good in Tampa, but has been really good here," Joseph said. "I've been really impressed with how he's played for us."

"I just think it's awesome what we've been able to accomplish," Sanders said. "It was really through no hate, no jealousy, all love. We really are a tandem. We work well together. I've played with different wide receivers and I know what we got is definitely special."

Discussions will include an update on what the league has learned through the first two weeks of the preseason. "No major changes to the rule are anticipated, but efforts to achieve clarity and consistency will continue," [Ian] Rapoport noted, adding that "new videos or teaching materials" could be leveraged to help officials on the field.
