ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos participated in their first of three days of minicamps on Tuesday.

Here are five things to know.

New offense

With the addition of new offensive coordinator Mike McCoy comes a new offensive system as well.

There have been some bumps in the road while implementing the new schemes and formations, but coach Vance Joseph likes where the offense is.

The communication of new schemes was a lot cleaner at the beginning of this week’s minicamp.

Quarterback competition

Joseph has a close eye on the quarterback competition, but Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian need to have short memories when it comes to making bad plays.

Joseph has stressed the importance of moving on and learning from mistakes. Throughout this competition both quarterbacks have made tremendous throws and have also made some poor throws, according to Joseph.

First-round pick

Joseph used first-round draft pick Garett Bolles more with the first-team offense.


There were a few scrums during offense/defense drills, and Joseph wants to stress that competition is hard, and that it is important to remember that those guys are teammates.

Running back

Running back Jamaal Charles is continuing his rehabilitation from injury. Don’t expect to see much out of him until training camp begins is late July, at the earliest.
