Devontae Booker admitted he hit a bit of a rookie wall mentally and physically late last season.

"You learn it's different than college, a lot different," Booker said. "In college you're winding down when things really get going [in the NFL]. You see good teams and good players start strong, finish strong." Booker feels "more ready" after a full offseason of working out and plans to push for carries in Denver. C.J. Anderson is coming off a knee injury, Jamaal Charles hasn't been healthy in two years, and De'Angelo Henderson is a sixth-round rookie. Booker is worth a flier late in fantasy drafts in an offense that figures to run the ball plenty.

Cody Latimer was seen being pepper-sprayed after slapping a bouncer at a strip club in Dayton, Ohio in a video obtained by TMZ.

The incident occurred in February and Latimer has already acknowledged that it was indeed him in the video. Charges were not filed and the police are not investigating the incident. Latimer has had a slew of off-field incidents including an arrest for failing to appear in court following a traffic violation. He also called the cops on his girlfriend for assaulting him last year and later paid her bail. The 24-year-old has been a major bust, hauling in just 16 catches since arriving as a second-round pick in 2014.

The Colorado Springs Gazette's Woody Paige reports John Elway "is about to become the league's highest-paid executive vice president-general manager."

Elway's contract runs out after this season. Paige reports a new deal "could be finalized" this week and should be announced before training camp begins July 27. The Denver Post's Nicki Jhabvala reports "no deal is imminent," however, while Denver 7's Troy Renck reports the two sides "still have work to do." Whether it is this week or in a month, there is little doubt Elway will sign a rich extension in the near future.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph expects rookie TE Jake Butt (knee) to play at some point this season.

Butt got in limited work at OTAs, but will open training camp on the active/PUP list. He’ll be nine months removed from surgery for Week 1. With only Virgil Green, Jeff Heuerman, and A.J. Derby ahead of him, Butt will push for a role when healthy.

Updating a previous item, Broncos players will not meet in Los Angeles this week for an informal passing camp.

Both Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas had said the quarterbacks, running backs, receivers, and tight ends would convene in L.A., but it's not happening. Players report for training camp in roughly two weeks, where the Paxton Lynch-Trevor Siemian battle will heat up.

Broncos players will meet for a passing camp in Los Angeles.

Organizing these types of events is usually the job of the starting quarterback, but Denver does not have a clear starter at this point. Both Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian will be in attendance, however. Siemian still is the slight favorite as the incumbent, but this job is truly up for grabs. For what it is worth, Lynch reportedly came on strong late in OTAs.

Emmanuel Sanders cut fast food out of his diet this offseason.

We are constantly amazed at how many NFL players eat fast food, but it's quite common. "I was eating bad," Sanders admitted. "If I was hungry I would sometimes go through the McDonald’s line and grab me a 20-piece (McNuggets). I would go through Burger King, just fast food because I was ready to eat now." Sanders also reiterated that the Broncos intend to play fast-first offense this year. "We’ve got this new offense with Mike McCoy," he said. "We’re going to be throwing the ball around, so my conditioning has to be up and I’ve been working on that.’’

Demaryius Thomas said he has fully recovered from the hip issue he dealt with last season.

Thomas aggravated what sounds like a chronic hip issue early last season and was bothered by it the rest of the year. "This is the best I’ve felt my whole career," he said. "Usually I wake up in the morning and I’m like, ‘OK, my hip’s tight. I’ve got to loosen it up to get it going.’ But now it’s totally different." In addition to improved health, Thomas will be reunited with OC Mike McCoy, under whom he broke out in 2012. Basically a lock for 1,000 yards, Thomas is a great pick in the fourth round.

Demaryius Thomas hopes the Broncos choose a quarterback before the team's second preseason game against the 49ers on August 19.

Thomas showed better rapport with Paxton Lynch last season, while Emmanuel Sanders and Trevor Siemian had a stronger connection. "He'll make the right decision," said Thomas of first-year coach Vance Joseph. Many Broncos skill players including Thomas will spend the next few weeks training in Los Angeles. Thomas has topped 1,000 yards with at least 90 catches in each of his last five seasons.

ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold believes Cody Latimer "might have one of the hottest seats" in Denver's receiver room.

It makes sense. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, the former second-rounder has a grand total of 16 catches through three years and is likely to lose his kick-return job to third-round rookie Carlos Henderson. If he is going to make the final roster, Latimer will have to be out at least one of Bennie Fowler or Jordan Taylor in camp.

Broncos C Matt Paradis (hips) has been cleared to resume football activities.

Paradis missed the spring recovering from double hip surgery. 9 News Denver says he's expected to participate in "most on-field activity" when training camp opens. The Broncos will likely limit Paradis' preseason snaps, but he should be near or at 100 percent by Week 1. Paradis broke out as a Pro Bowl alternate in 2016, earning PFF's No. 2 center grade behind Alex Mack.
Jul 5 - 6:44 PM

Jamaal Charles said he is "doing everything" including "cutting" on his surgically-repaired knees.

"I feel like the way I am cutting that I am back to the normal me," Charles said. "I am still 30 years old. I still have a lot of special stuff to do." Charles was held out of team drills during minicamp, but it looks like he is going to be close to if not at full health when training camp begins in about a month. It is unclear how much he has left in the tank after losing essentially two seasons to knee injuries, but he should push C.J. Anderson if he is healthy.

According to Mike Klis of 9News Denver, Paxton Lynch "made his move" on Trevor Siemian during the final two weeks of OTAs.

Klis noticed a turning point in Lynch over the final two weeks as his "switch was flipped." Specifically, Klis found Lynch to be less tentative, no longer worrying about protections, hot reads and coverages. "He started to get it," said Klis. "He started to play as if he was doing just that—playing." Lynch didn't show much as a rookie but appears to be making great strides as a sophomore. If Lynch continues to progress during training camp, there's a real chance of him wrangling the starting job away from Siemian.

Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post left Bennie Fowler off his projection for the Broncos' 53-man roster.

He also left off Marlon Brown. Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Carlos Henderson and Isaiah McKenzie are all locks, leaving four players—Fowler, Brown, Cody Latimer and Jordan Taylor—to battle for the last two spots at wide receiver. Wolfe believes Latimer will make the team because of his special teams prowess while Taylor's size gives him the edge over Fowler and Brown.

Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post left seventh-round QB Chad Kelly (wrist) off his projection for the Broncos' 53-man roster.

Wolfe expects Kelly to spend the year on injured reserve. It makes sense for Kelly to use 2017 as a red-shirt year while working his way back from wrist and knee surgeries. Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will battle for the starting job.
