Denver Broncos Team Camp Day 1 - News and Notes

The news from yesterday wasn't all about Travis Henry. The team was back on the practice field, this time for Team Camp.

Looks like the Broncos are testing the waters using John Lynch as a part-time player -

On nickel situations, Marlon McCree replaces John Lynch at safety.

How they use Lynch this season, along with the other safeties on the roster, will be a huge question throughout the summer

Ebenezar Ekuban was being used at DT on third down, similar to the way he was being used in 2006.

DeWayne Robertson participated in his first full practice as a member of the Broncos and came out of it none the worse for wear -

It felt good. I went full-go. We're getting a lot of good coaching out there from Bill (Johnson) and Jake (Burney). We've just got to take the coaching and keep progressing.

Robertson has a chronic knee condition and is coming back from off-season wrist surgery.

460 Pounds. That's what Broncos Guard Montrae Holland likes to bench press -

It's the most I've done. I feel a lot stronger than I did last year. Last year, I didn't push it past 405. I'm the strongest I've ever been. Now I need to do a little cardio to trim down.

  While Brandon Marshall continues to recover from his arm injury, other receivers are getting the attention of their Quarterback, most notably rookie Eddie Royal. Jay Cutler has been targeting the rookie as the two gain chemistry on the field -

It feels good to know that the quarterbacks trust me like that. We have a great group of receivers out here working hard, pushing one another, making sure we catch every ball.

Royal is also beginning to get comfortable with the playbook, something that is key to any rookie getting on the field in Year 1 -

It’s going good right now. We’re going back to the stuff we put in on Day 1, so it all sounds familiar, and I’m able to run the routes a lot faster and be a lot crisper coming out of my breaks, I felt comfortable today.

Is it just me or are all of you excited about what Royal could bring in 2008?
