Broncos Training Camp: Peyton Manning, Von Miller shine

Selfie with John Elway…

This isn’t really newsworthy, but the guy closest to me in this photo is John Elway himself, taking in practice and chatting it up with a couple of guys.

If only I could have heard what they were talking about…

Other Notes…

– Derek Wolfe and Kapri Bibbs were each shaken up during practice, but both returned and wound up being okay.

– Demaryius Thomas went up against Kayvon Webster in one-on-ones, and I’ll let you imagine how that battle went.

– I feel like Bradley Roby is a really underrated piece to this team. There wasn’t anything in particular I saw that made me think of this, but having a third CB with his talent level is a luxury a lot of teams simply don’t have. He’s going to be a key component of this defense.

– Shane Ray was unstoppable in one-on-one drills. Lining up on both sides, after his third rep, a coach shouted, “that’s three in a row!” I think this is going to be a fun rookie year for Ray, especially getting to play with Ware and Miller.

– Louis Vasquez is elite. He more than held his own in one-on-ones with Broncos pass rushers, looking like he just absorbed contact and controlled the situation. It was beautiful to behold.

– Brandon Stokley, Chris Kuper, and Joel Dreessen were among Broncos alum attending practice. Kuper, in particular, looks like he’s lost a lot of weight since his playing days ended. Dreessen and Stokley both looked great as well.
