2018 Key Additions: Team head honcho John Elway cleaned most of his house when it came to his quarterback situation. Trevor Siemian was dealt to the Minnesota Vikings and Brock Osweiler wound up signing with the Miami Dolphins. So now it’s up to 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch to learn what he can from free-agent addition Case Keenum, who helped guide the Purple Gang to the NFC title game a season ago. While the Denver Broncos used six of their 10 selections in the draft on offensive help, the fifth overall selection was pass-rushing standout Bradley Chubb. So imagine the possibilities when it comes to him teaming with Von Miller?
Offseason Review: Since winning Super Bowl 50 in 2015, the Broncos are a combined 14-18 and are coming off a 5-11 campaign. It was the team’s first losing season since 2010. Elway wanted to get a reliable quarterback and may have the answer in Keenum – that is, if 2017 was a sign of things to come and his showing with the Minnesota Vikings was the new rule and not the exception. But this is also a team in need of some new faces on defense. It’s a team that has fallen quickly after five straight AFC West titles. But it’s one capable of getting back in the playoff picture if Miller and company can dominate again.
