Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph in rookie mini-camp at Dove Valley. May 12, 2018.
Before the Broncos start organized team activities on Tuesday, coach Vance Joseph ordered up a golf outing for the second consecutive year.
The Broncos were scheduled to play nine holes on Monday to serve as equal parts a bonding experience and something-out-of-the-normal-routine exercise.
“Phase 1 and Phase 2 has been a good grind for us,” Joseph said last week. “We’ve worked and I think it’s time to have some team-building before we go to OTAs. Most of the guys go out, have lunch, check out the views and relax. Nobody is talking football.
“Golf is a sport that some of the guys play and some don’t. It’s fun to watch the guys who have never played before swing the club.”
Director of player development Ray Jackson will arrange the foursomes and present them to Joseph for suggestions/approval.
“We’ll mix them up,” Joseph said. “We’ll put the [defensive backs] coaches with the offensive linemen. Last year, I played with the O-line and I was the best player in the group. It’s fun to have guys with other teammates besides those in their position groups and with coaches that they don’t talk to every day.”
The Broncos will have three OTAs this week (Tuesday-Thursday).
“We play golf on Monday and start work on Tuesday,” Joseph said.
