Broncos, Briefly: Wednesday, July 3, 2019

The HOF confirmed in the last 24 hours to members of the Bowlen family and the Broncos that he would receive the artifacts. The HOF then confirmed to 9NEWS through a statement that it will deliver the Gold Jacket and ring to the Pat Bowlen estate. The Bowlen family’s plan is to then display his Gold Jacket and ring in the front lobby of the Broncos’ UCHealth Center headquarters so the mementos can be enjoyed by fans.

While Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis is thrilled for the family of late Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, which will receive a ring and gold jacket from the Pro Football Hall of Fame upon his enshrinement next month, Davis is just as excited about what the precedent could mean for families of other deceased members.

3) Von Miller, OLB, Denver Broncos

He's the pre-eminent sack artist who keeps defensive coordinators up at night while giving the flawed Broncos a chance in every game they play. Denver's defense could be great this year. That's all Miller and new head coach Vic Fangio.

Miller piled up 14.5 sacks last year, giving him a league-high 98 since entering the NFL in 2011. And he's as consistent as they come -- no wild swings in production from one year to the next. Outside of the suspension/injury-abbreviated 2013 campaign, the ninth-year pro has reached double-digit sacks every season. With Fangio at the helm and Bradley Chubb garnering more and more attention on the other side, anyone going to tell Von Miller he cannot hit 20 sacks in 2019? Not me.

The defensively-oriented [Vic] Fangio hired new offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello from San Francisco, where he had been quarterbacks coach, and his approach should resemble that of 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan. That means more throws out of run-based looks, with emphasis on play-action and designed QB movement. New Denver quarterback Joe Flacco isn't ideal for this approach, but he will suffice.
