With rookie minicamp, OTAs, and mandatory minicamp now in the books, it’s time to look ahead to training camp.
The Denver Broncos have the next six weeks off – and better keep in shape or fear the wrath of head coach John Fox – before returning to Dove Valley July 25 for the start of training camp. The team’s first two-a-day practice will be the following day.
Unlike the offseason gatherings thus far, training camp is open to the public, and the first opportunity for many of us to see Peyton Manning and company in action.
The team facility’s weight room will be opened during the summer recess.
Will Prater be signed?
The Broncos continue to work with kicker Matt Prater’s agent on a multiyear deal. According to the Denver Post, the sides are “not far apart,” and the expectation is this contract gets signed, sealed, and deliver sooner rather than later.
Prater didn’t participate in any of the team’s recent offseason activities.
The Broncos placed the franchise tag on Prater back in March, though he never signed his tender. If Prater and the Broncos do not come to terms before July 16, he’ll play the 2012 season with a one-year deal of $2.654 million.
