Denver Broncos blog, news and rumors

With Elvis Dumervil and his $12 million salary likely headed out of Denver, the Broncos are currently shopping for a replacement at defensive end. It is widely expected that Dwight Freeney will land with the team, while Osi Umenyiora provides another option.  The team was also reportedly interested in Paul Kruger, who eventually landed in Cleveland to [...]

The discussion on defensive linemen couldn’t be more timely given the recent rumors of the Denver Broncos working with Elvis Dumervil to renegotiate his contract. Though whether this is legitimate or not has not been confirmed, from what I have gathered the Broncos would carry nearly $4-million in dead money on Dumervil for 2013 if [...]

As we all know, Charles Woodson won the Heisman Trophy in 1997 (edging out Peyton Manning) after leading Michigan to the National Championship. He was drafted by the Raiders, before moving on to the [...]

The Indianapolis Colts informed Dwight Freeney today that they will not re-sign him, and thus, he is free to sign with whoever he wants. The Broncos have a lot of money tied up in the younger Elvis Dumervil (Freeney is 33; Dumervil is 29), and not much on the other side of the line, where Freeney plays. [...]

Editor’s Note: How Big Pete’s Instant Reactions is something beyond “OMG WE #1 SEED GOOOOOO BROOOOONCOOS WOOOOOO” — is beyond me. That is the only thing my head is currently capable of processing. The quick and dirty reaction to today’s game is simply this…. WOW!!! Who watching didn’t utter those words on more than a [...]

As kickoff approaches this Sunday, we provide a quick review of the week that was in Dove Valley leading up to game day. Today, defensive end Robert Ayers (non-injury related), wide receiver Brandon Stokley (wrist/hip), and tackle Chris Clark (illness) are questionable to play.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Ayers and his family as [...]

Denver’s defense may be without two defenders this weekend.  Defensive end Elvis Dumervil (ankle) and cornerback Tracy Porter (illness) have missed practice for two consecutive days and appear unlikely to play against the Chargers in Week 11. “Right now, [Elvis Dumervil has] a muscle strain.  He’s getting treatment, doing everything he should be doing.  He’s [...]

Now that was a team victory. The Denver Broncos (6-3) defeated the Carolina Panthers (2-7) by a score of 36-14 on Sunday, despite scoring only two offensive touchdowns. Led by a defensive unit that recorded seven sacks, two interceptions and scored nine points, the Broncos’ offense was merely a compliment to their explosive special teams [...]

If depth was a concern for the offensive line, it is exactly the opposite for the defensive line. It’s amazing how quickly things can change year to year. Remember when we all freaked out when the Denver Broncos didn’t pick any of those “first round” defensive tackles back in April? Well, judging by the final [...]
