Just hours before my scheduled “Why haven’t they signed yet?” post, the Denver Broncos signed the final two rookies from the Class of 2012.
On the eve of the start of training camp, quarterback Brock Osweiler, taken by the Broncos at No. 57 overall, signed a four-year deal. According to the Denver Post, the deal is worth about $3.1 million. The Broncos also signed running back Ronnie Hillman, the Broncos’ third-round pick at No. 67.
As quarterback at Arizona State, Osweiler started 15 of 25 games, passing for 5,082 yards and 33 touchdowns. He also ran for four touchdowns.
Hillman, from San Diego State, ranks fifth in Mountain West Conference history with 3,243 rushing yards.
The Broncos return to Dove Valley Wednesday for the start of training camp. After morning conditioning tests, select players will meet with the media at noon. A team meeting is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. with the first public practice Thursday at 8:50 a.m.
