Horse Tracks: Coaches take note of Broncos' vets coaching up younger players

Broncos veterans are coaching up the team's younger players

(Jon Heath-Mile High Report)

Denver's coaches are paid to teach players how to play the game of football. But the players themselves are stealing some of the thunder.

Broncos offensive coordinator Rick Dennison said the Broncos are a unique team, and that he's never seen a defense coach up an offense like Denver's has in practice.

"I see it all the time here. So I, as an offensive coach, really appreciate it," Dennison said.

Veteran outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware is a prime example. Before training camp started, Ware spoke to the media about helping rookie left tackle Ty Sambraillo and the young offensive line.

"I will do certain things to him to say, ‘Hey, look at your stance. I know you’re in a pass rush stance, I know you’re in a blocking stance.’ And they change these things during the mini camps and the training camps to become a better player," Ware said.

Ware has also been coaching up his potential successor, Shane Ray, and all of the team's defenders. Perhaps Ware, 33, will consider coaching when he hangs up his cleats.
