When I read the quote within this title in Troy Renck’s mailbag over the weekend, I really didn’t think much of it one way or the other. But now that bigger outlets like PFT are picking up on Renck’s line, I felt that an explanation is needed as to why it needs to be understood with more context.

As I’ve written on other Broncos on or entering contract years (Demaryius Thomas, Brock Osweiler), as well as commented on other articles, I’ve given hints as to my opinion on how negotiations would go with the most important player coming up on a new deal. Thus, I should put my entire thoughts on the matter in a full article. Continue reading Examining A Possible Von Miller Extension
As we’re all wrapping up our Fourth of July festivities, one risky tradition of the holiday reared its head into the NFL landscape:

Hello, Bronco fans! It’s a couple days late, but I’m still calling it Midweek Musings for consistency’s sake. Let’s get to it, shall we?
I’ve previously discussed that I believe the Broncos will ultimately get a long-term deal for Demaryius Thomas completed. Nick has recently explained how the Broncos might sign Brock Osweiler to an extension. I do not expect an extension for Osweiler — or any other Bronco, for that matter — until the Broncos have Thomas signed to a new deal or until after July 15 (if he hasn’t signed a new deal by that date, he’ll play the season under the tag and I would expect the Broncos to figure he won’t stick around and focus their attentions elsewhere).
But it is a good idea to look at the players who are set to become free agents in 2016 and determine who is most likely going to be in line for an extension. This week, I will look at those players who are entering the final seasons of their rookie contracts (in one case, a player is under the fifth-year option) and who the Broncos are likely to start talking to about extensions.

Hello Broncos Fans!
Going into training camp, this Broncos team has a lot of new, unfamiliar faces on the roster. In order to help the average fan get acquainted with the layout of the roster, I am ranking the Broncos 90 man roster pre-training camp. Keep in mind, that IR players (ahem, Ryan Clady) will not be included on this list. If you have any disagreements with my rankings, let me know.
