Denver Broncos’ Defensive Players Avoid the PUP List and Will Help Build Defensive Chemistry

The Denver Broncos received a big boost when linebacker Von Miller avoided the PUP list and was seen on the field at Dove Valley. Miller tore his ACL late last season at the Houston Texans. Also avoiding the PUP list were defensive end Derek Wolfe, defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson and safety Rahim Moore. Cornerback Chris Harris was placed on the PUP list, but is doing well in his recovery from a torn ACL in the postseason.

What this means is the Broncos have the right mix of players in training camp to build chemistry on defense. Champ Bailey and Wesley Woodyard are now gone and the Broncos must be able to communicate effectively on the field. Because Miller, Wolfe, Vickerson and Moore are taking part in training camp, Denver can now mix the new acquisitions with last year’s players.

The Broncos are trying to build a balanced team. The offense was record setting last season, but the defense was subpar. Now that Miller, Wolfe, Vickerson and Moore can participate in training camp with new arrivals DeMarcus Ware, Aquib Talib and T. J. Ward, the payoff could mean a championship.

Just because it looks like the Broncos have an all-star defense on paper does not mean it will necessarily work out. A good defense needs chemistry and defined leadership. With Denver’s injured players back on defense at training camp, it will provide the team a great opportunity to get to know each other and build of each other’s strengths. Broncos fans can be relieved that all of these players have the chance to mix at training camp and not during the important first part of the regular season.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
