When the Denver Broncos reported to training camp they were met by cushy new team and position meeting rooms and an expanded training room that features two cryogenic chambers and a flotation pod along with other amenities courtesy of a $9.5 million facilities face-lift that capped a five-year Cheap Mike Hughes Jersey , $45 million renovation.

An even bigger upgrade is the $56 million one on offense.

General manager John Elway signed quarterback Case Keenum to a two-year, $36 million deal and acquired right tackle Jared Veldheer from Arizona.

Then, he bolstered his backfield by drafting running back Royce Freeman out of Oregon and receivers Courtland Sutton of SMU and DaeSean Hamilton of Penn State.

They are the pillars of a 10-member draft class that's led by first-rounder Bradley Chubb and has already drawn raves for its depth of talent and knowledge. All 10 spent four years in college honing their crafts, a reversal of last year's draft class that was loaded with projects and problems.

The Broncos haven't bolstered their offense like this since the Peyton Manning era, and with Keenum, they're no longer bogged down by a QB competition like they were each of the last two summers 鈥?unless you count Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly's battle for the backup job.

"We're a better football team," Elway said Friday on the eve of training camp. "We have some better depth. I think Case is a big part of that. ... Now, we have to all come together. It's about getting continuity on the offensive line as well as the young wide receivers getting up to speed. As well as the young running back.

"So, offensively, I'm excited about it, especially with Case" leading the way.

So is coach Vance Joseph.

"I think it's huge to have a starting quarterback in place," Joseph said. "In at league that's built for parity, from the top to the bottom of the roster every team's got talent. But the one position that makes a huge difference is quarterback. And we do have one in place. So Devin Hester Jersey Youth , that's exciting for our team."

No more splitting snaps. No more getting used to two different cadences or throwing styles.

And no more wondering.

"It's given us clarity for our football team," Joseph said. "We're not guessing who the quarterback's going to be. We're not guessing who the leader's going to be."

In Sutton and Hamilton, the Broncos finally have receivers who can not only take pressure off Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders but also apply some pressure to the veteran starters who were smothered by D-backs last season.

"Adding those two young guys, they're going to help us," Joseph said. "In this league it's about matchups, it's about getting 1-on-1s. When you have two guys and you have no tight end threat, not halfback threat, the defense can easily bracket those two guys.

"When you have three and you have a guy like Jake Butt in the slot, it's going to be hard for teams to do that."

Butt missed his rookie season while recovering from ACL surgery, which caused him to slip into the fifth round in the 2017 NFL draft. But the Broncos believe that if he can stay healthy, his presence is like adding a first-round talent to the offense.

The Broncos jettisoned veteran C.J. Anderson in the offseason in a cost-cutting move, leaving a group of running backs long on promise but short on experience, including rookies Freeman Jaire Alexander Packers Jersey , David Williams and Philip Lindsay along with second-year pro De'Angelo Henderson and third-year pro Devontae Booker.

"It's a young group, but I like that," Joseph said. "From a halfback perspective, you want guys who are young because that means they are healthy. Healthy. Willing. Open-minded."

Notes: Joseph said it's up to WR Carlos Henderson, who failed to report to camp, whether he has a future in Denver: "He's having some family problems right now and it's strictly on Carlos whether he wants to continue to play football." ... Joseph said LG Ron Leary (knee) and RT Veldheer (foot) will both be eased into the lineup. The only player on PUP will be WR Jordan Taylor, still recovering from hip surgeries.
Aaron Rodgers is losing his most prolific receiver but might be getting an upgrade at tight end.

The Green Bay Packers released veteran Jordy Nelson, the third-leading receiver in franchise history and one of Rodgers' top targets.

The Packers announced the move Tuesday, a day before teams can begin to sign free agents.

Nelson had 550 receptions and 69 touchdown catches in 10 seasons in Green Bay. But his production declined last season with Rodgers sidelined much of the year by a collarbone injury.

First-year general manager Brian Gutekunst called Nelson "one of the great Packers who played here. He's everything you want a pro to be 鈥?and he'll be missed.

"I think Jordy is a really good player, and you certainly don't want to let him walk out the door. But this is a big puzzle, and there's kind of limitations. You can't keep everybody. As we went through this, we thought this was in our best interest. The best interest for our team moving forward."

Asked if the Packers offered Nelson the opportunity to come back in 2018 at a reduced salary, Gutekunst said Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey 49ers , "There were a lot of discussions that went on. In fairness to him, we won't get into those kind of discussions."

Nelson, who turns 33 in May, was scheduled to earn $10.25 million this season and carry a salary-cap number of $12.52 million.

In a post on his Instagram account, Rodgers wrote that it was "hard to find the right words today to express what '87' means to me. No teammate exemplified what it means to be a Packer quite like him. From living in (Green Bay) full time, his incredible contributions to the city, state, and region, to his consistent, reliable play on the field. Definitely a sad day and the toughest part of this business."

Asked if he talked to Rodgers about the decision, Gutekunst replied, "Talked to Aaron afterward. Had a conversation with him afterward, but not before."

Nelson had 53 catches for 482 yards and six scores in 2017 Vontaze Burfict Youth Jersey , a year after winning Comeback Player of the Year honors. He had 97 catches on 1,257 yards and a league-best 14 touchdowns in 2016, rebounding from a knee injury that sidelined him the previous season.

Rodgers and Nelson had a chemistry built over their time as two of the longest-tenured Packers.

Nelson's release figures to foreshadow more moves for the Packers, who could use an upgrade at tight end. Jimmy Graham is one of the top free agents available on the market.

The Packers have Lance Kendricks at tight end, but Richard Rodgers is due to become a free agent.

Davante Adams, who has emerged as the No. 1 receiver, signed a contract extension last year. Randall Cobb remains on the roster, while Ty Montgomery might be used in more of a hybrid role after playing running back exclusively in an injury-plagued 2017 season.
