“When I saw the maturity, it was time for him to get his contract done. I remember standing outside the weight room and saying something to him about it, like, ‘you’re about to become the highest-paid player in the NFL.’ He brushed it off. His focus wasn’t on the money. It wasn’t on anything besides football. That’s the same time you started hearing stories of him getting dropped off at the facility in the morning and then he’d jog back home. Then he started jogging to work and jogging home. In everyone’s eyes he was already one of the best, but his thought was he’s going to go even further and higher.”
The Broncos have worked through their bye week “in pretty good shape,” according to coach Vance Joseph, but as they adjourn for the players’ four-day weekend, they will keep an eye on cornerback Bradley Roby’s ankle injury, as well as running back Jamaal Charles. Both are not expected to miss any game action, but Roby has missed some practice time in each of the previous two weeks, though he did play against the Bills and Raiders before the bye. Charles took a helmet to the knee in last week’s win and was limited after the play. However, he has been on the practice field this week and said he didn’t expect to have any trouble when the Broncos return to work next week. — Jeff Legwold
