Von Miller is Back, and Embracing High Expectations
Von Miller was very upbeat when talking to the media. Despite winning a monster payday in a contract extension over the summer, he has no plans to become complacent.
Miller says he’s aware that expectations are higher now that he’s getting paid the big bucks, and he’s ready to take on the challenge.
“I’ve always had high expectations,” Von Miller said. “I don’t like coming out and telling the world what I’m going to do because everybody’s going to look at me like, ‘This guy is crazy. He wants to do this and do that.’ I’ve always held myself to an expectation that nobody else does, not even my teammates. I’m going to continue to beat my standard. I’m going to come out here. I’m going to work. I’m going to be the same type of teammate that I was in the locker room before.”
Broncos Look to Tight Ends
The position is one that wasn’t a high priority during the Manning years, but all of that is about to change. Coach Gary Kubiak is building an offense that’s heavy on pass-catching tight ends.
“This a tight end-friendly offense,” said TE Virgil Green. “This year, the quarterbacks we have, they’re expected to read coverage more and go to the open guy. I think tight ends should be a little more successful than years past.”
Sports Authority No More
All references to the bankrupt sporting goods store were removed from training camp, as we wait to see who acquires the naming rights to Mile High Stadium.
Apparently the stadium naming deal was separate from the sponsorship that had previously injected Sports Authority’s logo into a host of other team situations, and that agreement has already been terminated.
