Receiver Heaven:

Yesterday, Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders spoke to media, and he talked Broncos receivers, chemistry, and of course Peyton Manning.

"Like I said when they acquired me, this is kind of like wide receivers heaven here," he smiled. "As a receiver, to say that you're going to the No. 1 offense in the National Football League last year, why wouldn't you want to be a part of that?"

It would appear that "receiver heaven" does reside in Denver Colorado. The Broncos have Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Wes Welker, Cody Latimer, and Andre Caldwell already there. That's arguably the deepest group of receivers in the NFL. It also helps having a future Hall Of Fame Quarterback in Peyton Manning spreading the ball around.

Sanders also spoke about how he's already gaining chemistry with his new teammates.

"It was my first time actually meeting all the guys," Sanders said. "I enjoyed it, gaining chemistry with Peyton. You can't miss out on those opportunities -- especially before OTAs, because I had an opportunity to come in and not be the new guy, kind of get a feel for the guys out there at Duke."

Look for that chemistry to continue to grow throughout the offseason, and into Training Camp.

One thing I liked hearing from Sanders was his dedication to the weight room, film room and hunger to win. All those characteristics make him a good fit for the Broncos offense.

"That's what it's about, so when we get out there on the field, it's just playing football," he said. "Peyton is a special guy, and I see why he's probably, if not the greatest, one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game, and that's because he doesn't change. He's all about winning; he's all about the team atmosphere. I mean, today, this guy, he's been in the National Football League for so long, but he walks up to me and asks me to run extra routes after an OTA practice. And that's what it takes. You know, the little extra stuff that you do, that's what's going to determine a win or a loss or a completion or incompletion on Sunday nights."

I'm excited to see what Emmanuel Sanders does in the Broncos offense. He's a completely different player then the player he's replacing in Eric Decker. Sanders has great speed, and will be a big play waiting to happen whenever he gets the ball in his hands.

  • Broncos Quarterback Brock Osweiler earned his diploma from Arizona State, and walked during their graduation ceremonies.
  • The Chicago Bears have just about signed all their rookies already. Yesterday they signed their first round pick, cornerback Kyle Fuller.
  • Yikes. Greg Hardy's accuser says that he threw her on a bed covered in guns and "bragged that all of those assault rifles were loaded. Hardy was arrested Tuesday night, and was charged with misdemeanor assault charges.
