Every year when camp opens I get these odd feelings. When you played football for most of your life and had the opportunity to play in the NFL, July 4th was really your last holiday before camp opened. I remember thinking, “You better be in camp shape or camp could be torturous. Summer is over and it’s time to go to work.”
The smell of cut grass brings back the same feelings of early morning workouts and the competiton you faced on a dialy basis.
I’m as excited about the Broncos this year as I have been in many years. I think they really helped themselves in the draft and the offseason picking up some quality players that will help the defense improve.
I played around many great quarterbacks, Jim Kelly at the University of Miami, John Elway while here with the Broncos, Steve Deberg here in Denver and again in Tampa Bay, later in my career along with Vinny Testaverde. You have to be excited about Jay Cutler as he looks to me to fit into that catagory.
