ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — **The Broncos players and staff took to the golf course on Tuesday for some team bonding before the start of OTA's this week. The golf outing served as a way for the team to build their off-the-field relationships and relax before the pace kicks up on Wednesday morning.
"Usually going into training camp you're all tense the day before and you don't sleep well but this is a way to get guys out there and relax," says safety David Bruton Jr. "We get to know each other as teammates, not just on the field but as people outside of work."
"I think when you think about football, it's a team sport and you have to have events during the offseason that build that team camaraderie," said linebacker DeMarcus Ware. "It's not just about the X's and O's it's about the family time and getting to know guys after taking the helmet off."
While the trip was a way for the players to bond and get their mind away from the football field, they didn't necessarily leave their competitive nature on the gridiron.
"It's competitive no doubt," said Ware. "I mean, some guys can't even golf and they look like they are expert golfers, me being one of those guys. I'm going to compete regardless."
"It's frustrating, I'm not going to lie, but I love the competition," said Bruton Jr. "I have my moments of greatness – sometimes I'm LeBron and sometimes I'm some scrub."
