Jason Cole of Bleacher Report says that the Denver Broncos are still trying to figure out if back up quarterback Brock Osweiler is the right guy to replace Peyton Manning.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning claims he’s not upset when he found out about the negative things Tom Brady had written about him in a personal email that was leaked.
Manning said no harm, no foul on Brady email. Said Brady sent apology text. "It wasn't necessary. I have been roasted. That wasn't a roast"

The guys over at USA TODAY’s For the Win compiled there list of the most depressing NFL teams from 1-32.
Below are the top 10.
1. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
Eagles fans mistakenly believe they’re on the same level as current greats in New England, Green Bay and Denver and past champions such as the Redskins, Giants and 49ers. In fact, they are neither. They are ringless football fans who adore a movie about their city in which — how’s this for metaphorical? — their hero loses in the final fight. – CC
2. WASHINGTON REDSKINS
The likelihood of 30 more years of Dan Snyder would be enough to send Richard Simmons to therapy. – CC
3. CLEVELAND BROWNS
Cleveland is your garage band in high school, except instead of moving on and joining a fraternity in college, the Browns have stayed in high school for another 16 years and changed their drummer eight times. You’re never going to make it, Browns. It’s time to work at Guitar Center. – MF
4. OAKLAND RAIDERS
What do you want me to tell you, Raiders fans? Do you want me to lie? Do you want me to tell you it’s going to get better? Do you want me to tell you that isn’t a bowl cut on Mark Davis’ head? Oakland is a dumpster fire, and the problem with a dumpster fire is that even after you’ve put it out, you still have a charred dumpster. – MF
5. BUFFALO BILLS
The Bills actually have a really good team heading into 2015, which isn’t depressing at all. But the existence of a Bills fan is one of the most singularly depressing experiences a football fan can have. The Bills haven’t been to the playoffs since 1999, but this could very well be the year that changes. If it isn’t, well, can anyone really say they’re surprised? – MF
6. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
Oh, you have four Super Bowls? What’s that, your quarterback is the greatest of all time? Cool, cheaters. You see, that’s the problem all these defensive Patriots fans have. They can’t even talk about their Pats love because they’ll immediately be shot down by Deflategate jokes and curiosity about whether Bill Belichick has set up a camera in the immediate area. – CC
7. CINCINNATI BENGALS
Initially, I’d planned to just type Andy Dalton’s name until I’d filled three lines. Actually, that’s still a good idea. Andy Dalton Andy Dalton Andy Dalton Andy Dalton Andy Dalton Andy Dalton. – MF
8. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
Two years ago, the Niners were one play from a Super Bowl victory with a top-notch coach on the sideline and a dynamic young superstar under center. The sky was the limit. Now the limit seems to be about 4-12.
At least Aldon Smith seems to have matured.– CC
9. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
The Bucs have tied their franchise to Jameis Winston.
I’m sure it’ll be fine. – MF
10. ST. LOUIS RAMS
Hey remember all those players you got from the Robert Griffin III trade that were supposed to turn your team around? Sorry about that. On the bright side, you won’t have to experience the annual disappointment of Sam Bradford’s season-ending injury. – CC
A Reddit user and Chiefs by the name of Pumpjuice posted the photo below of his toilet.
Now that Tom Brady’s personal emails are being leaked, here are some of him ripping Peyton Manning.
Looks like Broncos linebacker Von Miller decided to go jewelry shopping prior to training camp, per TMZ Sports.
We spoke to Joe Avianne … owner Avianne jewelers in New York … and he tells us Miller went on a tear in his shop, copping every single diamond encrusted bobble he could get his hands on.
The haul included …
— Two 7.5 karat diamond “Royal Collection” charms.
— Two Rolex Watches.
— Two Hublot “Big Bang” King Diamond watches.
— Two diamond chains … 25 and 35 karats respectively.
All tolled … over $220k worth of club-slaying bling. Now, all he needs is a fat ass ring to match.
The NFL has removed Broncos linebacker Von Miller from their drug program, according to Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver.
After getting tested multiple times a week for two years as a player who was in Stage 3 of the NFL’s substance abuse program, Miller’s status has been resent to zero. He has not been drug tested in more than a month. He is not even in stage 1.
The development could not have come at a better time for Miller as he is in the final year of his contract. That means when his agent Joby Branion entertains negotiations for Miller’s next contract, the linebacker would be considered no more risk of a drug suspension than the league’s teetotalers.
This is great news for Miller.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Kyle Williams is already done for the season after suffering a ruptured Achilles during Saturday’s practice.
Unfortunately, today I suffered a rupture to my Achilles and will consequently be missing this season. It's hard for me at this point to make sense of all of this but at the end of the day I understand and trust God's plan for me. My determination to get back and my work ethic will not diminish and I will eventually get back to full strength. I appreciate all those who have reached out and all of those who are praying. You all mean more to me than u know. Thank you. ✊🏾
The Denver Broncos have confirmed that Antonio Smith will report to training camp even though he’s currently being investigated for criminal child sexual abuse.
“We’ve been in communication with Antonio and the league for the last couple of months,” Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said, via Broncos.com. “Based on those discussions, it’s appropriate for Antonio to be here and compete with the rest of the team as we begin training camp.”
There really isn’t much the Broncos can do right now since Smith hasn’t been charged with any crimes. All they can do is let the legal process play out.
With training camp only days away, authorities in Texas are still investigating the allegations against Denver’s Antonio Smith for criminal child sexual abuse.
“The complaint is still under investigation and no determination has been made to formally charge Mr. Smith at this time,” the Fort Bend, Texas District Attorney said Monday.
Smith was excused from voluntary workouts during the offseason, but he’ll likely report with the other veterans on Thursday.
Wide receiver Wes Welker is still a free agent that’s waiting for an NFL team to sign him.
Welker’s former teammate with the Broncos, cornerback Champ Bailey, told FOX Sports Live that it’s time for Welker to retire.

Former NFL running back Cedric Cobbs was busted and charged for promoting prostitution, according to ArkansasOnline.com.
Cedric Cobbs, 34, was listed as an inmate in the Pulaski County jail after being booked into that facility shortly before 1:30 a.m., according to an online jail roster. He was being held for much of the morning on the single misdemeanor charge with a bail amount listed as $500, though he was no longer listed on the roster at 10:40 a.m.
According to an arrest report, Cobbs drove a woman to an Americas Best Value Inn & Suites at 14325 Frontier Drive in Maumelle, where she had arranged with a person who was actually an undercover police officer “to have sex for money.” Cobbs reportedly waited in the parking lot and was arrested.
Police also found two meth pipes in the center console as well as some prescription drugs and meth in the woman’s purse.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning showed up in Chattanooga, Tennessee to show support for the city after last week’s horrific shooting that claimed the lives of five marines.

Tennessee is of course close to Manning’s heart since he played his college ball in Knoxville.
