The Broncos are back — all of them.
With veteran players joining the team's early reports over the weekend, Denver had itself a busy weekend. In case you missed all the goings-on — from Phillip Lindsay and Melvin Gordon III trying on new helmets together to Jerry Jeudy turning into a dancing machine — here's a quick recap.
Let's start with all that dancing: Jeudy and several other members of Denver's 2020 draft class suited up in their Broncos uniforms for the first time.
On Saturday, veterans returned to UCHealth Training Center and then had their turn going through the photoshoot and green-screen ringer. Gordon, Kareem Jackson and Courtland Sutton joined Jeudy in putting on their dancing shoes, but Alexander Johnson trotted out something different altogether.
To commemorate the yearly experience, we snapped instant film photos that captured glimpses of players' personalities.
At the Broncos' annual photoshoot, we had several players pose for fun, instant film portraits to show off their personalities.
And finally, to get the vets up to speed after most of them were away from the facility for the entirety of the offseason, Head Coach Vic Fangio and several team executives held an extensive meeting providing an in-depth overview of COVID-19 protocols. For a look at Fangio's message and more, check out this story by DenverBroncos.com's Aric DiLalla.

In Pro Football Focus' season preview for the Broncos, Steve Palazzolo added more high marks for the draft class and noted the team's potential, but as always, the focus is on the quarterback, and he highlighted a few areas of improvement for Drew Lock. "With speed, outside playmakers and viable middle-of-the-field weapons, Lock should have an opportunity to show off the zip and touch that put him in the first-round conversation before he landed in the second round in 2019," Palozzolo wrote. "We'll know much more about Lock by the end of 2020."
After Jeff Heuerman's time with the Broncos came to an end on Friday, he penned a heartfelt letter to Broncos Country. It's definitely worth your time. "There isn't a better fan base in the country, and I will always cherish our time together," he wrote.
