Photo by Andy Cross/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Getty Images Only three of five played so the lack of production is relatively meaningless The Denver Broncos only drafted five players in 2023. For all intents and purposes only three played (JL Skinner played one defensive snap). Most NFL teams had seven picks. The Miami Dolphins (4), Carolina Panthers and Broncos (5) had fewer because of trades. The Broncos also had no pick in the first round. First round picks generally play as rookies. Often second round picks don’t. NFL team picks by draft year First round picks were also responsib ..read more

Photo by Harry How/Getty Images The last true jersey the Denver Broncos retired was in 1999 with the retirement of John Elway. Has there been a player deserving of that award since? I think so. We’ve beaten the quarterback discussion to death this week, so I decided to look for a different topic to discuss this fine Saturday morning. The Denver Broncos have retired just three jersey numbers in its 60+ year history. The last true retirement was in 1999 when John Elway hang ‘em up, but technically #18 was borrowed and re-retired for Peyton Manning in 2015. #18 - Frank Tripucka / Peyton Manning ..read more

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports There was some discussion amongst the traditional Denver media on Thursday that former #3 overall pick Sam Darnold could be the right fit to take the snaps for the Denver Broncos in 2024.
