The Denver Broncos began organized team workouts (OTWs) at the team’s facility in Dove Valley on Monday, and a majority of the team was present.  The workouts are closed to the media so nobody but the players and coaches know exactly who was and wasn’t there today.

But we have a list of all of the confirmed players that did and did not attend. It should be noted that these workouts are “voluntary”, but are also “highly recommended.”

Peyton Manning (Press conference).

Wide receiver Brandon Stokley, who signed with the team today, will be at the team’s facility to workout with the team on Tuesday.  Fellow receiver Eric Decker noted that about 35 to 40 players attended an unofficial practice on the team’s practice field today, though no coaches were present due to NFL offseason rules.

Second-year linebacker Von Miller said his thumb is about 85% recovered and added that he is “positive” it will be fully recovered in time for training camp. Cornerback Champ Bailey reiterated that quarterback Peyton Manning gives the team a chance to reach the Super Bowl, but the defense still needs to improve. Manning noted that he has been living at the team’s facility.

    First name I looked for was knowsho. He’s there, that’s great. Need him to get out of the dog house. Rahim Moore I had a feeling was not there and turned out he wasn’t. Elvis is a mystery. I’m sure he had something he couldn’t get out of. He’s a class act.

    That being said, the turn out was amazing. Shit is about to get cra!

    The dreaded DIV tag…WordPress and DIV tags are mortal enemies.  I think I was able to clean most of it up for you buddy…

  • Tim Lynch

    It’s voluntary.  A proven veteran like Elvis doesn’t necessarily need to be there.  Rahim Moore on the other hand is looking more and more like a wasted draft pick.
