Notes after the jump.
- Stanley Daniels took over the starting left guard position for Zane Beadles who looks to be backing up (and possibly replacing the injured) Ryan Harris.
- Jason Hunter surpassed Jarvis Moss as the starting right outside linebacker.
- Recently signed Chris Clark is backing up Ryan Clady, not Ryan Harris. Not that it means much, but it does create opportunity for Beadles.
- Dan Gronkowski (who was just signed yesterday) is already the second string tight end ahead of Richard Quinn.
- The Broncos are extremely thin at outside linebacker (only three on the team). Mario Haggan can push over and played outside last season, D.J. Williams can also play outside and it may be a consideration the Broncos have to make if they’re not getting the push they want.
- Brady Quinn remains the second string quarterback and Tim Tebow the third. This leads me to believe Josh McDaniels has something up his sleeve for Tebow.
What do you say guys, any surprises?
