Denver Broncos Roster 2020 Denver Broncos Roster

5-11, 4th AFC West

vs LV

9:25 pm GMT , 1/3

There was a clear plan over the offseason to get Drew Lock weapons. They did that with getting Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler in the draft. They also grabbed Albert Okwuegbunam who will fit in nicely with Noah Fant. They had some turnover on the defensive side with Derek Wolfe and Chris Harris leaving. Jurrell Casey and AJ Bouye were brought in on friendly trades and will help soften the blow on those departures. Denver also signed Melvin Gordon to pair with Phillip Lindsay. Adding all these offensive weapons should help Lock, as they already have Courtland Sutton who has produced since coming into the league.

Broncos FAQ

Since winning the Super Bowl following the 2014-15 season, the Broncos have had a few tough years, finishing with a winning record just once in four seasons. However, there's a reason for optimism in Denver as the team looks ready to make the playoffs for the first time since Peyton Manning retired. Drew Lock flashed high-level talent in his five starts as a rookie, and he'll be well-supported by recent draft picks Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler who are joining Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant in what has the upside to be one of the best receiving corps in the NFL in a couple of years. The defense was excellent last season, allowing just the 8th-fewest points per game in the NFL, and should be even better with the returns of Bradley Chubb and Bryce Callahan from injuries as well as the additions of A.J. Bouye and Jurrell Casey. Those players join Von Miller, Justin Simmons, Kareem Jackson, Alexander Johnson, Shelby Harris, and Todd Davis in what should be one of the best defensive units in the NFL.

Who is the Highest Paid Broncos Player?

Heading into the 2020-21 season, Von Miller carries the most prominent cap hit of any player on the Broncos' roster. His base salary is $17.5 million, and with a prorated bonus of $7.5 million, he can reach over $25 million in salary money this season.

Who Owns the Denver Broncos?

Pat Bowlen had been the Broncos owner since 1984, overseeing three Super Bowl championships. After Bowlen passed away in 2019 due to a pulmonary embolism, he left behind the team to his seven children. There has been a complicated legal battle between team executives and Bowlen's relatives for control of the organization.

Who Is the Broncos Head Coach?

Vic Fangio is entering his second season as the Broncos' head coach after a 7-9 record in his first season. Fangio is 61 years old, making him older than most other first-time head coaches, and he's been a longtime defensive coordinator in the NFL.

How Much Cap Space do the Broncos Have?

The Broncos currently have $17.3 million in cap space, the 14th-most in the NFL. Denver is still paying Joe Flacco, their former starting quarterback who was cut this past offseason, $13.6 million in dead money. General manager John Elway has done a great job managing the cap in recent years.

Who Is the Broncos Starting Quarterback for 2020?

Drew Lock, a second-round pick by the team last season, appears to be the team's quarterback of the present and future. He may not be a great fantasy option early in his career, but he has the talent to lead this team to the playoffs.

Who is the Youngest Player on the Broncos?

The Broncos put together an excellent draft class in 2020, including KJ Hamler, the former Penn State wide receiver who is still just 20 years old and doesn't turn 21 until July 7th. Hamler joins what should be a much-improved Broncos' receiving corps alongside third-year pro Courtland Sutton and first-round rookie Jerry Jeudy.

Who is the Oldest Player on the Broncos?

The Broncos' oldest player would have been quarterback Joe Flacco, who is now 35 years old, but he was cut during this past offseason. The team's oldest player is now Kareem Jackson at 32 years old, with Von Miller close behind at 31 years old.

Coloradans Have Mile High Enthusiasm for Their Broncos

Denver, Colorado is the home of one of the most avid football fan bases in the world. It is the home of the Broncos. Each year, Broncos fans' aspirations are a mile high for their beloved football team. As Colorado welcomes sports betting, Broncos fans now have another way to show their faith in their football team. Let's take a look at the Broncos' history, plus some memorable Bronco seasons.

Denver Broncos History

The motivation to start a professional football team in Denver actually arose after the failure of a professional baseball league. Denver Bears owner Bob Howsam expanded the team's baseball stadium ahead of a presumed launch of a rival professional baseball league. However, the league never materialized. The Bears' owner was left with the problem of how to pay for his newly renovated facility. Howsam decided to try to establish a football team in Denver. Unfortunately, his efforts to join the NFL proved fruitless.

He and four other wealthy businessmen decided to launch their own rival professional football league. With the formation of the American Football League, Denver had its first pro football team. Football fans might have found odds on William Hill Colorado on what the team name would be. The industrious owner decided to hold a name-that-team contest. The winner was the Broncos. A new league, a new city, and a new mascot did not immediately mean success.

Denver has had 17 head coaches since that first season in 1960. The longest-tenured coach for the first two decades was five seasons. In 1981, Dan Reeves began a 12-year run as the Broncos boss. He led Denver to three AFC Championships but did not make a Super Bowl appearance. After Wade Phillips' pair of average years at the helm, Mike Shanahan took over as the Broncos' head coach. Shanahan is still the longest-tenured head coach in Broncos history. He is also the most successful.

Shanahan only coached two more years than Reeves but won 40 more games. Reeves' 13 playoff victories match Shanahan's, but it's Shanahan's two Super Bowl triumphs that ring in Broncos fans' memories. Denver has made 10 trips to the Super Bowl, winning three Lombardi Trophies. Since making their first Super Bowl appearance in 1977, the Broncos have posted 27 winning regular seasons. The Broncos have made 22 playoff appearances since the AFL/NFL merger in 1970. Let's look at a few of those 22 most memorable seasons.

Memorable Denver Broncos Seasons

As a charter member of the AFL, the Broncos never experienced a winning season. The best record Denver could muster in their nine AFL years was an even split, 7-7 year in 1962. Denver never made the playoffs as a member of the renegade league. With the merger ahead of the 1970 season, success wasn't immediately forthcoming for the Broncos either. The franchise's first winning record didn't come until its 13th season of play. The 1973 Broncos finished with seven wins, five losses, and a pair of ties.

Denver won seven games again in 1974 and managed to inch higher up the AFC West Division standings finishing in second place. The Broncos would finish second again the next two seasons, but things would finally change in 1977. Denver would set a franchise record with 12 victories. They would win both AFC playoff games to earn a chance against the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl XII. Denver fell short in that game, but the success helped fuel fan enthusiasm in the Mile High City. The Broncos would finish the 1970s with another pair of 10-win seasons but would exit the playoffs after one game. Denver would begin the 1980s decade with moderate success, only have a two-win strike-shortened 1982 losing record.

Six times Denver would hit double-digit victories. The enthusiasm for the "orange crush" became a trademark of the Colorado sports scene. If you lived in or around Denver, you probably followed the Broncos. However, with all the enthusiasm and avid fan support for the Broncos, the heartbreak was tremendous. Three times during a four-season stretch in the mid-1980s, Denver would overcome the odds to win exciting AFC playoff battles. During the 1986, 1987, and 1989 seasons, Denver would earn a chance at the ultimate professional football prize. Each year the Broncos would be soundly defeated in the final game of the NFL season.

Denver ended the 1980s as one of the most successful teams in pro football, but one without a championship. The team would continue to have mostly successful seasons, only two losing records between 1990 and 1996. It was in 1996 that Broncos' fans ended a season with another disappointment. After a 13-win regular season, Denver had high hopes of a return trip to the Super Bowl. As memorable as 1996 was, it ended with a bitter three-point loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The cry, "wait until next season" could be heard from the tops of the tallest Rocky Mountain. Well, it worked. In fact, it worked for the next two seasons. Between the start of the 1997 season and the end of the 1998 regular season, Denver would win 26 regular-season games. However, the biggest memory for Broncos' fans isn't having only six defeats in two seasons, it's not having a single playoff loss for those same two years. A BetMGM Colorado beat ahead of the 1997 playoffs on the Broncos odds would have produced a huge jackpot.

Denver's 12 victories weren't even good enough to win the AFC West Division. Nevertheless, they exacted revenge on the Jaguars in the wildcard game and continued to stampede their way to the franchise's first professional football crown. The Broncos rolled into 1998 as proverbial favorites to make it back to the Super Bowl. They did not disappoint. A bet on FanDuel Colorado futures odds to win the championship would have paid out a winner.

Denver rolled up 14 victories on their way to the AFC West crown, and then steamrolled their three opponents in the playoffs, culminated by a 34 to 19 overwhelming of the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XXXIII. This back-to-back championship run was memorable for Bronco fans and was certainly one of the most memorable runs of any professional sports franchise. Denver has continued to be one of the most successful and most consistent teams in the NFL.

The Broncos have won 10 games or more eight times since their 1998 championship. During a four-season stretch from 2012 through 2015, Denver won 50 games, made two more Super Bowl appearances, including their third Super Bowl title in 2015. While success has been limited since winning the 50th Super Bowl over the Carolina Panthers, there has never been a loss of enthusiasm from Bronco fans. Denver has one of the truest and most dedicated fan bases in the world. In fact, Coloradans across the state love their Broncos.
