We’ve talked a bit about expectations from the Broncos in the offseason, here we want to look at four players among the many that are standing out at camp.
Early training camp returns, like NBA Summer League, should be taken with a grain of salt. The portion of camp that fans are invited to is fun and provides our first glimpse at the team. It is exciting and it is traditional.
The players even seem to enjoy the spectacle and play to the assembled fans. Von Miller spoke on his approach to camp. His contention that leadership starts at camp is not necessarily a departure for the Denver star but in his 8th season, it’s the first time I can recall him talking this seriously about leadership.
Von has tended to defer to guys like DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib. With the departure of Talib, Miller is now in a veteran role for his squad. There’s no doubt he’s prepared and capable.
