The Denver Broncos should now have a break until training camp in late July. What should we look for during the rest of the offseason?

The Denver Broncos recently finished mandatory minicamp, and should now have a bit of a break before training camp starts, presumably in late July.

In the next six weeks or so, there may be little to no news coming out of the team.  However, I think there are a few things the fans should look out for during this off time, and also during the remainder of the offseason.

There may be significant changes still yet to happen for the Denver Broncos, both on the field and off.

I don’t think we should expect the team to sign any more players in the next month or so, so I think any free agency news pertaining to the Denver Broncos is out of the question.

But with a new owner now in place, there may be some announcements worth watching out for.

Also, there could also be some news with current Broncos players, perhaps regarding contract extensions or potential trades.

I think we may hear some news with any of these topics before the 2022 season begins, so let’s look at three storylines to look out for during the rest of the 2022 offseason.

Denver Broncos storylines during the rest of the 2022 offseason

1. Rob Walton final say news?

Now that Rob Walton is just about “officially” the Denver Broncos’ new owner, there may be a few things that he might want to get started to perhaps kick off a new era of Denver Broncos football.

The two things I am talking about are the potential for a new stadium and new jerseys.

The Denver Broncos have had the same jersey scheme since the late 90s, around when I was born.

Almost 30-year-old jerseys don’t exactly excite people, and I truly think the current jerseys aren’t anything special.

The Denver Broncos would not be able to have new jerseys for the 2022 season, but they could do this for the 2023 season.

Perhaps Mr. Walton is willing to entertain the idea, especially since he surely wants to make his mark as the new owner.

This brings me to the next point of the potential for a new stadium.  Mile High is about 20 years old, so it’s by no means needing to be replaced.  But, Walton has about a bajillion dollars, so he could very easily finance himself a new Broncos stadium more to his liking.

This could also increase the chances of the Broncos’ home stadium hosting a Super Bowl.  This would mean a new stadium is needing to have a retractable roof or simply be a dome.

I think an announcement of new jerseys is more likely this offseason, but I think both are possible.
