    Evans: The Broncos need to pounce if Rob Gronkowski is on the market

    An interesting quote surfaced this week from an anonymous AFC executive who isn’t convinced New England tight end Rob Gronkowski won’t be traded by the Patriots. His feeling is that until Gronkowski gets a new contract he believes head coach Bill Belichick could trade his All-World tight end. If that’s the case, the Denver Broncos […]

    Evans: Observations from OTAs as Broncos head toward training camp

    Here are my observations from the Denver Broncos spring football season: » The raves that surround Case Keenum and all he brings … … in the form of leadership and stability only underscores what a cluster the Broncos quarterback situation was the past two years. Keenum is only doing what any team should reasonably expect […]

    Evans: For the Denver Broncos offense in 2018, boring is better

    “Boring is Better!!!!” I put four exclamation points instead of three to really drive home the point. This is an idea, a slogan, Denver Broncos fans should embrace when it comes to this year’s offense. Let’s be honest, what I’m really talking about is having an efficient offense, but “Boring is Better!!!!” grabs your attention. […]

    Evans: Nuggets next steps post-lottery include strong draft, postseason

    What’s next for the Denver Nuggets now that the thrilling made-for-TV event that is the NBA Draft lottery is over? – Slow golf clap for Jamal Murray for sitting through the dog and pony show that is the NBA Draft lottery to represent the Nuggets Just sit there in a quiet room, and try to […]

    Evans: Broncos need to now practice, not just preach, accountability

    I like how the Denver Broncos approached this draft. They put an emphasis on picking players who produced in college and, more importantly, were leaders and captains of their teams. It’s a sound strategy. It’s as good a strategy you can hope for in the crapshoot that is the NFL Draft. So while I like […]

    Evans: Second guessing the Denver Broncos quarterback situation

    I don’t like the Denver Broncos current quarterback situation. Now, before we go any further, do not take this as a complaint the Broncos failed to take a quarterback with the fifth-overall pick. Since Denver earned that pick, I was against the idea of drafting one of these overrated college wunderkinds. The herd mentality that […]

    Evans: 2018 draft not just business as usual for the Denver Broncos

    Observations from the Denver Broncos 2018 NFL Draft: 1. I don’t hand out draft grades I don’t know. You don’t know. Nobody knows for sure if these guys can play in the NFL. I only grade teams on what they were trying to do with their picks. For this, I give the Broncos a solid […]

    Evans: After an early playoff exit, what’s next for the Avalanche?

    The glow of a resurgent season for the Colorado Avalanche will linger for a good chunk of the summer, but all this did was whet my appetite. I want more. I want this season to be a stepping stone to something bigger. Making the playoffs as a huge underdog, eighth seed is fine … for […]

    Evans: What’s next for the Broncos after releasing CJ Anderson

    CJ Anderson was a success story with the Denver Broncos. An undrafted free agent productive during his five years in Denver, Anderson had the overtime touchdown run in the snow to beat the New England Patriots. He capped off a Super Bowl 50 victory with a touchdown plunge. He finished his Broncos career with a […]

    Evans: Blackmon deal not surprising, but it comes with a cost

    When I first heard about the Charlie Blackmon deal, it felt like it came out of nowhere. But the more I think about it, the more it made sense. First of all, how refreshing is it to see a player basically come out and say, “I ‘m happy here. I’m not looking to leave.” Blackmon […]
