Don't look now, Broncos fans—we are about to enter the deadzone of the NFL offseason.
Coach John Fox cancelled Thursday's activities on the team's OTA schedule, meaning the Broncos are now on vacation until training camp rolls around in late July. Players will report back to Dove Valley on July 23, according to a Denver Post report.
Denver's first day of training camp will be Thursday, July 24. Unfortunately, all regular training camp practices this summer will be closed to the public due to construction at the team's headquarters.
The team will hold three practices at Sports Authority Field at Mile High that will be free and open to the public on Sunday, July 27, Wednesday July 30, and Saturday August 2. The August session will be the team's annual stadium scrimmage.
Between now and July 27, Broncos fans must hold their breath that Denver's players will stay healthy and out of trouble until returning to work. (Many eyes will be on T.J. Ward, Von Miller, Matt Prater, Aqib Talib, Quinton Carter, and Bradley Roby.)
After training camp, Denver's first preseason game of 2014 will be on Thursday, August 7 against the Seattle Seahawks at home (full preseason schedule). Five weeks later, the team will host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football to kick off their regular season (full regular season schedule).
See you in July, Broncos.
