Melvin Gordon calls Madden rating 'wack' (0:54)

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon expresses his displeasure with being given an 84 overall rating in Madden NFL 21. (0:54)

The Denver Broncos open training camp for the 2020 NFL season on July 28 at their practice facility in Englewood, Colorado. The Broncos finished the 2019 season 7-9, tied for second place in the AFC West. They have missed the playoffs in four consecutive seasons dating back to Peyton Manning's final season in Denver. The Broncos return 18 starters from last season as well as head coach Vic Fangio and coordinators Ed Donatell (defense) and Tom McMahon (special teams). Here's a 53-man roster projection:


QUARTERBACK (3): Drew Lock, Jeff Driskel, Brett Rypien

The Broncos could always use the third roster spot here at a far more crowded position, such as tight end. But there is some feeling around the league, given the uncertainty with the coronavirus, that many teams will elect to keep three quarterbacks on active rosters this time around. And Rypien has received some high marks from pro personnel executives who have taken a look at his play.
