We expected record turnout today at Sports Authority Field at Mile High…
And we weren’t disappointed.
Official attendance for this afternoon’s only stadium practice this training camp was a staggering 41,304 – nearly double the previous record of 20,782 for Sports Authority Field set in 2010.
Peyton Manning took just over a dozen snaps against the Broncos second-team defense, culminating in a 9 touchdown pass to Eric Decker.
Among the players I noticed not participating were Justin Bannan, Quinton Carter, Tyler Grisham, Ronnie Hillman, and D.J. Williams.
I’ll post an album on DHF’s Facebook page later this weekend, but here are a few:
Broncos Sign Jim Leonhard
The Broncos have signed safety Jim Leonhard, who last played with the New York Jets.
The move comes now that safety Quinton Carter is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Leonhard himself is coming from significant injuries in 2010 and 2011. Leonhard also has experience returning punts.
It’s a one-year deal.
