It certainly has been a rough ride this off-season. With most indications pointing to the a resolution to the NFL lockout within the next forty-eight hours,I thought it was important to offer a MHR refresher on the current state of Denver Broncos football. Without the typical news vacuum of the off-season to constantly rehash the moves and acquisitions of the Broncos, I don’t blame you for being foggy on all that’s has gone on over the last eight months.
Join me after the jump for a series of links I gathered to bring you back up to speed on just where the Broncos stand now that the lockout is (fingers crossed!) coming to an end.
