Keeler: Broncos landing Zach Wilson at QB? Smart. Settling on Wilson if Bo Nix, Michael Penix are available? Dumb
The Denver Post

Rescuing Zach Wilson is smart. Stopping at Zach Wilson is hubris. As a quarterback, Wilson’s merely appetizer material. If the NFL Draft is still serving Bo Nix or Michael Penix Jr. as a main course, and at a reasonable cost, the Broncos would be crazy not to bite. A QB room consisting of Wilson, Jarrett Stidham, Ben DiNucci and a seventh-round flier to be named late would be the worst in the division (pending Raiderfoonery ). And arguably the worst in an AFC that’s still loaded with franchise signal-callers. In isolation, though, you get it. Landing Wilson from the Jets with a seventh-round p ..read more

By AMY BETH HANSON and MATTHEW BROWN (Associated Press) HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A federal jury on Monday said BNSF Railway contributed to the deaths of two people who were exposed to asbestos decades ago when tainted mining material was shipped through a Montana town where thousands have been sickened. The jury awarded $4 million each in compensatory damages to the estates of the two plaintiffs, who died in 2020. Jurors said asbestos-contaminated vermiculite that spilled in the rail yard in the town of Libby, Montana was a substantial factor in the plaintiffs’ illnesses and deaths. Family members ..read more

Inside Broncos draft meetings: Sean Payton and George Paton explore multiple ways to evaluate players
The Denver Post

3h ago
In George Paton’s 24 years of working in the NFL, he has rarely seen conflict on draft night. Even though the Broncos general manager’s draft philosophy differs from that of head coach Sean Payton, the goal is to avoid tension inside the draft room at the team’s facility by taking care of the hard work well in advance. When it’s time for the Broncos to make their first selection in the first round since 2021, their draft board has been set, and every possible scenario for each round laid out. But to get to that point has required countless hours in meeting rooms and many miles traveled across ..read more

WINNIPEG — Casey Mittelstadt is a pretty low-key guy, but he couldn’t contain his excitement. Finally, in his seventh season as a full-time professional hockey player, it was time to find out what the Stanley Cup Playoffs were all about. And it would be hard to say that Mittelstadt did anything but pass his first postseason test with a strong effort. “I think with the energy and the atmosphere overall, I don’t know if I’ve played in a game like that in my career to be honest,” Mittelstadt said. “I loved it, though, I loved every second of it. Definitely excited for more.” When this season bega ..read more

The Denver Post

WINNIPEG — The intrigue in the Colorado Avalanche net has expanded beyond just who might play Tuesday night. Colorado recalled Ivan Prosvetov from the AHL after practice Monday and sent Arvid Holm back to the Eagles. Prosvetov was the backup goalie for the first half of the season before getting Wally Pipp’d by Justus Annunen. Who might start is one question, but who is going to dress and potentially be ready to come out of the bullpen is now another. It adds another layer of intrigue for coach Jared Bednar’s big decision for Game 2 of the Avs’ opening-round playoff series against the Winnipeg ..read more
