Deep Threat

For the past four years the Broncos have had a secret weapon in Ashley Lelie. Lelie had a break out season in 2004 and became the biggest deep threat the Broncos have had in recent years. But Lelie said that towards the end of the season, defenses starting taking away the deep routes from him leaving him virtually none existent in the passing game. So Lelie has spent the off-season working on intermediate routes to improve his play.

The latest acquisition for the Denver Broncos has been punter Todd Sauerbrun. The Broncos traded their punter Jason Baker along with a seventh-round draft pick to acquire Sauerbrun. I don’t know why the Broncos would trade for him though, the guy has been in trouble with the law in more ways than one. He is under investigation for steroids and has pleaded guilty for DWI.

A Lengend in the Making

Making a stand and what some thought would be maybe his last season in the NFL; John Lynch made believers out of everyone. After undergoing neck surgery at the end of 2004 the Bucs released Lynch thinking he was done for.

Now Lynch a year later with the Broncos can still impose his presence on the field. I can still she the receivers hesitate as the cross the middle hoping that the hard hitting lynch is no where is site.

With 12 years of experience Lynch has a lot of knowledge under his belt that he uses to overcome his only flaw, his deep coverage. Most importantly though Lynch is a leader and every football team looks for leaders.

Lazy or Smart?

The Broncos won't have a May minicamp. Or a June minicamp, either. Breaking from convention and tradition, the Broncos won't hold their three-day, mandatory minicamp until July 6-8, just three weeks before training camp opens.

Shanahan said that trying to shuttle in rookies after the draft was too hectic and he would prefer the later minicamp because he thinks the young players will retain more of what they learn.
