Source: Elway interested in joining ownership group if Broncos are sold

Chubb, Jewell leave game with injuries. Graham Glasgow confident he’ll play next week. Special teams gives up another TD return.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Could it be, John Elway competing with Peyton Manning to buy the Broncos?

Per source with knowledge of John Elway’s plans, the Broncos’ former quarterback, general manager and current president of football operations has interest in being part of ownership group if the team should be put up for sale.

Elway has always had a strong business acumen and is making necessary preparations. 

CBS Sports reported Sunday that Manning is also interested in putting an ownership group together if the Broncos were to be sold.

Broncos CEO and president Joe Ellis has said a determination on the team’s ownership transition, currently held in the Pat Bowlen Trust, wouldn’t be made until after the season.

Ellis has also said the team would either be run by Brittany Bowlen, a daughter of later owner Pat Bowlen, provided certain conditions be met, or would be put up for sale. 

Last month, Forbes valued the Broncos’ franchise at $3.75 billion. While Elway and Manning have done well for themselves financially, neither has that kind of loot. Each would need an investor group with at least least one multibillionaire to make it work.

Outside linebacker Bradley Chubb returned to the starting lineup after sitting out the opener last week with an ankle injury. Perhaps, Chubb returned a week too early. He left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury and didn’t return.

Inside linebacker Josey Jewell suffered a shoulder injury in the second quarter and didn’t return. He was replaced by second-year linebacker Justin Strnad.

Right guard Graham Glasgow said prior to the game Sunday he was hopeful he would be cleared to play next Sunday against the New York Jets in the Broncos’ home opener.

Glasgow said his heart tests this week came back, “pretty good. Which is surprising considering what went on in the game.”

When did his heart, which was later diagnosed with an irregularity, start acting up last week against the Giants? “About the second series,” he said.

He continued to play for all but the final three-and-out series. 

One of the downers for the Broncos is they gave up a late, 102-yard touchdown kickoff return to Jacksonville’s Jamal Agnew. It was the fifth return touchdown (punt or kickoff) the Broncos have surrendered since the start of the 2018 season, more than any NFL team.

“From my vantage point, it wasn’t a great one, it looked like we had a chance to tackle him real early and everybody went right by him,” Fangio said.

Special teams linebacker Jonas Griffin had the best chance to stop Agnew around the 20 and Mike Ford had a chance late.

“And that guys’ a helluva returner,” Fangio said. “He’s one of the top five returners in the league. But obviously it’s a problem. It’s not one that we haven’t addressed. … It’s been addressed, just need to keep sawing wood at it.”

Bridgewater stays calm, guides Broncos to 10-7 halftime lead on Jaguars

Bridgewater stays calm, guides Broncos to 10-7 halftime lead on Jaguars

After a poor opening series, Denver D adjusted well to Jaguars’ rookie QB Trevor Lawrence. Bridgewater has thrown for 184 yards and TD by halftime.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — To help acclimate for the early start time and long flight, Broncos head coach Vic Fangio flew his team here Friday evening, a night earlier than usual.

About halfway through the second quarter, there was reason to wonder if Fangio should have brought the team down Thursday.

The Jaguars gave the Denver D an immediate wakeup call at muggy, rainy TIAA Bank Field by efficiently marching 83 yards to score a touchdown on the opening drive. Rookie quarterback and No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence had plenty of protection and receivers running free as he completed 5 passes for 73 yards, including a beautiful 25-yard touchdown to Marvin Jones Jr., who beat cornerback Kyle Fuller on a sideline-and-go pattern.

The Broncos were down quickly, 7-0.

Luckily for the two-night visitors, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has all the panic of a man in a deep slumber. The man has zero anxiety.

Bridgewater calmly answered the Jaguars’ opening statement by leading the Broncos on two sustain drives to put Denver up 10-7 at halftime. He had completed 15 of 21 for 184 yards at the break, including a 12-yard touchdown pass to Tim Patrick on the first play after the 2-minute warning.

Courtland Sutton was the Broncos’ leading receiver with 4 catches for 68 yards.

After Lawrence connected with Jones to put the Broncos on alert, Denver got a break on the ensuing drive when cornerback Shaquill Griffin was called for holding on third-and-long while he was covering tight end Albert Okwuegbunam well away from where Bridgewater threw an incompletion. The first down by penalty, and accurate Bridgewater passing, moved the Broncos to first and goal at the 10. At which point Bridgewater, who had stepped out of a sack for a completion earlier in the drive, couldn’t shake the pursuing edge rusher Josh Allen, who dropped the Broncos’ quarterback for a 16-yard loss.

Still, the Broncos broke Jags’ momentum with an 8 minute, 55 second drive that finished with a Brandon McManus 33-yard field goal.

The first quarter ended with Jacksonville up, 7-3, but the Denver D came through a three-and-out on its second series to settle things down.

It stayed that way until about 5 minutes left in the half. After rookie running back Javonte Williams was tackled behind the line of scrimmage, the Broncos’ drive was facing second and 16 at its own 14. At which point Bridgewater went to work. His best play was a 33-yard, touch pass completion to Sutton that moved the ball from the Broncos’ 40 to the Jaguars’ 27.

It occurred as Bridgewater was under pressure, then stepped up in the pocket to a clearing. He calmly saw Sutton scramble his route towards the end zone and Bridgewater hit him perfectly.

Bridgewater then completed a 15-yard pass to Kendall Hinton – his first NFL game as a receiver after breaking in memorably as an emergency quarterback last season – and, after the 2-minute warning, connected with an open Patrick on a drag route for the touchdown.

Jacksonville could have been leading but kicker Josh Lambo missed field goals from 52 and 48 yards. But the Denver D made the necessary adjustments on Lawrence, who was just 5 of 16 for 20 yards after his first drive.
