Chase Vaughn: One of the 90

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Under almost-cloudless skies, most of the attention is focused on quarterback Peyton Manning as he carves up the defense in 7-on-7 drills before they graduate to full 11-on-11s during Denver’s second week of OTAs. With All-Pro linebacker Von Miller rehabbing his right ACL injury in the foreground, Manning’s barks of “Omaha!” and other directives are drowned out by the noise of heavy-duty vehicles repeatedly reversing, pounding and jackhammering. On a separate field, not far in the distance, the defensive ends work on their technique and positioning before joining the larger group. Three enormous orange, white and blue cranes hang nearby, plugging away on construction of the Broncos’ new $35 million, 115,000-square-foot indoor practice facility.
