Safety Rahim Moore isn’t slow to admit that at times, he struggled last year.

“I’ve had some good and bad (experiences), majority bad,” Moore laughed.

He’s over it. The only reason Moore looks back on his 2011 season is to learn from it. MORE>>>

FORT MORGAN, Colo. — Broncos Tight End Joel Dreessen has come full circle and returned home to Colorado, and now works for the man he used to idolize.

Growing up in Ft. Morgan on the eastern plains of Colorado, Dreessen was a huge Broncos fan while creating his own legacy at Ft. Morgan High School.

He’s back, and FOX31 Denver’s Kami Carmann caught up with Joel when he gave us a tour of his hometown.

The Broncos signed 15-year veteran LB Keith Brooking Monday. Brooking played against John Elway as a member of the Atlanta Falcons in the 1998 Super Bowl. Here’s what coach John Fox said about Brooking:

“He’s a 15-year player, veteran guy, five-time Pro Bowler, he’s played ‘Mike’ and ‘Will’ [linebacker positions]. We had him in for a workout and thought he looked outstanding. He won’t play this week in this week’s game. He was out there today, could not participate. Shorts practice tomorrow, shorts practice on Wednesday. We’ll start him back up after we get back from Chicago.”

While the players had the day off, FOX31 Sports was busy preparing for tonight’s show.  Here’s a Broncos update from sports producer Hank Siegel:

Bumps and Bruises

Veteran safety Jim Leonhard who signed with the Broncos on Saturday is still rehabilitating his surgically repaired knee and was placed on the team’s active physically unable to perform (PUP) list Sunday.

This means he counts against the Broncos’ roster but he can’t practice with the team or participate in preseason games until he’s cleared.

The 29 year old Leonhard was added to the roster to add depth to the defensive backfield following Quinton Carter’s recent knee surgery.

He previously suffered a broken leg in 2010 while with the Jets and blew out his knee at the end of the 2011 season.

He was also expected to be used a punt returner.

Running back Mario Fannin tore his Achilles tendon Saturday during the team’s scrimmage, according to multiple sources.

An undrafted free agent out of Auburn where he was a teammate of Cam Newton, Fannin was a backfield mate of Cam Newton. Fannin missed all of last year when he tore his ACL in a pre-season game.
