Kareem Jackson fits right in at safety for Broncos

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Exhibit No. 1 in support of Vic Fangio’s desire to convert Kareem Jackson into a fulltime strong safety is the 10th-year pro’s jackhammering, fumble-causing, touchdown-saving, touchback-inducing, bone-crunching hit of Chargers running back Austin Ekeler .

Broncos-Chargers Preview: Joe Flacco, Philip Rivers In Veteran QB Battle

(CBS Denver) — The Denver Broncos have stumbled to an 0-4 start to the season. Despite new quarterback Joe Flacco, the two-back running attack of Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman and a serviceable defense, the Broncos can’t seem to find the win column. Two of their losses were decided by a two-point margin. Had those last-second field goals not occurred, the conversation surrounding this team would sound very different.

Broncos cornerback De'Vante Bausby told to pick it up by Vic Fangio

A strong showing in the AAF with the San Antonio Commanders led the Denver Broncos to sign cornerback De'Vante Bausby earlier this offseason after the short-lived league went defunct. Broncos head coach Vic Fangio has familiarity with Bausby as well as he played under Fangio for parts of two seasons in 2015 and 2016 while Fangio was the Bears defensive coordinator.

Joe Flacco won't have to worry about losing his job to another rookie quite yet

After the Denver Broncos selected Drew Lock in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft, Joe Flacco likely had flashbacks to one year earlier when his Baltimore Ravens drafted his eventual replacement, Lamar Jackson. The good news for Flacco is that this time around, he should have a bit more breathing room. First-year Broncos head coach Vic Fangio spoke to the media on Sunday and quashed any rumors of a quarterback battle during OTAs.

Derek Wolfe: Vic Fangio fills leadership void left by Peyton Manning
