2018 Training Camp: Andrew Mason gives Broncos fans a great primer for opening of camp

The cohost of 1st & 10 @ 10 on Orange and Blue 760 and senior digital reporter at the Broncos website takes fans to school (in a good way) on the MHR Radio Podcast.

We’re almost there.

The torture is almost over.

It feels like the last six months took six years, but one more week. This is the last Sunday without Denver Broncos football, in some fashion, until at least January. Come a week from today, the Broncos will enter their second day of training camp.

On the latest edition of the MHR Radio Podcast, Adam Malnati and I were fortunate enough to chat with Andrew Mason. The cohost of 1st & 10 @ 10 on Orange and Blue 760 and senior digital reporter at took fans to school (in a good way). Mase is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to the franchise and NFL.

The best part is the training camp primer he provided on the following: Who fans need to watch, who needs to have a strong camp, expectations for the offense and defense, and if he was sitting with you on the bump to watch practice, how you should do so and what you should watch for. Listening to this podcast is a great way to prepare camp.

Come for the incredible Broncos knowledge, stay for the remarkable stories.

The torture is almost over.
