Broncos players are excited to play where their output decides their play time

Sean Payton has the Denver Broncos moving toward a culture that rewards players for continuing to be excellent instead of what they have done in the past.

Refreshing changes abound in Broncos Country. No more will we hang onto expensive players who’s best years are behind them. No more will the Denver Broncos start draft picks over players who are just better because of spent draft capital.

I honestly find it refreshing to see Sean Payton come in and lay the foundation for change with how the Broncos go about their business in Dove Valley.

And we’re seeing the same kind of opinions from the players on the roster. Guys like Jerry Jeudy are excited to have an honest chance to take a big step forward. Guys like Mike McGlinchey are talking about this locker room being able to shoot for championships again. And we have a young stud in Zach Allen who wanted to come here and put his stamp on the NFL in a spot where he sees a legit coach putting together a legit team that can taste success.
