Denver Broncos 2014 Training Camp Preview

By John McMullen, NFL Editor

(SportsNetwork.com) -

REPORT DATE: July 23

SITE: Paul D. Bowlen Memorial Broncos Centre, Englewood, CO

CAMP CONFIDENTIAL: It's Super Bowl or bust in the Rocky Mountains again.

Denver was always going to be a serious threat to get back to the big game as long as Peyton Manning returned, but by "winning" free agency, the Broncos have seemingly lapped an AFC field they were already dominating.

John Elway's handiwork in free agency resulted in a haul which not only placed wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders in but also high-profile defensive targets like pass rusher DeMarcus Ware, shutdown cornerback Aqib Talib and ascending young safety T.J. Ward.

KEY OFFENSIVE ACQUISITION: The Broncos obviously have quite an array of offensive weapons and Sanders, a free agent pickup from Pittsburgh, will be asked to hit the ground running and help replace the production of the departed Eric Decker, who signed with the New York Jets after hauling in 87 receptions for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns last season.

KEY DEFENSIVE ACQUISITION: Elway really fortified Jack Del Rio's defense by adding Ware, Talib and Ward along with first-round cornerback Bradley Roby.

Of the four keep an eye on Ware, one of this generation's best pure pass rushers, who could prove reborn opposite fellow rushing stalwart Von Miller.
