Day One of Denver Broncos training camp is in the books. Mile High Report was there, but so were a lot of the other big national media outlets. ESPN and NFL Network each sent their "A teams" to Denver, while the Denver Post and DenverBroncos.com also represented with multiple people covering all angles of camp.
Videos were made, and now, videos will be shared.
The Denver Post "Starts (us) Up" with a training camp warm-up and some quotes from Peyton Manning before Robin Carlin, Troy Renck and Mike Klis discuss Pat Bowlen's retirement and the first day of camp.
Peyton Manning's full press conference talked about the absence of fans, thoughts on Year 3 in Denver, and being "honored" to be Pat Bowlen's QB. He also had one-on-one's with the NFL Network's Rich Eisen and ESPN's Tom Jackson, below.
John Fox said Peyton Manning looks as good as he's ever seen him, while Wes Welker echoed those sentiments in his segment with NFL Network. Broncos new additions DeMarcus Ware, Emmanuel Sanders and T.J. Ward talk camp.
Several Broncos graded themselves after Day 1, with Von Miller giving him an A+ (referring to his health) while Emmanuel Sanders gave himself "below an F." ESPN's Jeff Legwold says the Broncos are looking to bounce back, while the official site offers some exclusive Day 1 highlights.
More from Broncos camp
Andrew Mason offers his five observations, noting that Emmanuel Sanders is still adjusting to the elevation in Denver after training in Texas the last month. Legwold says people shouldn't be quick to dismiss Andre Caldwell in his first camp report, while the official site offers their quick hits.
Von Miller looks lean and poised for a comeback. Peyton Manning's tenure as a Bronco already surpasses that of his years with the Colts. Pressure's on John Fox this year.
"If we have a complete team and help each other, where one isn't better than the other, we can be a championship team," T.J. Ward said. "That's our goal. It has already started. Guys are hungry, eager, excited and it shows. We are communicating well. You can tell the vibe right now is very strong."
In case you missed it, we covered every position during Day One in our first practice report.
The Denver Post's Terry Frei reached out to a number of Ring of Famers to talk about Pat Bowlen's diagnosis and resignation as owner. This is a fantastic piece and highly recommended reading as Frei received insights from the likes of Terrell Davis, Tom Jackson, Big Alfred Williams, Karl Mecklenburg, and Steve Atwater.
