Broncos, 49ers announce joint preseason practices for third straight year

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos and San Francisco 49ers will hold joint practices for the third year in a row this summer.

However, this year the Broncos will be headed to Santa Clara, Calif., for the practices.

In the two previous years, the 49ers visited Denver. In 2014, the Broncos hosted the Houston Texans for joint practices at UC Health Training Center.

The specific dates of the joint practices will depend on the day the Broncos play the 49ers in the preseason. The Broncos will play them in Week 2 of the preseason on Aug. 17-20.

The dates are expected to be announced later this month.

The team say this is the first time the Broncos have traveled for joint preseason practices since visiting Dallas in 2007.
