NFL Notes: Broncos, Lions, Vikings



Broncos OC Bill Musgrave has been using a lot of shifts and motions during practice this offseason to create more favorable matchups for the team’s new look offense.

“It’s been fun to watch Billy with his shifts and motions,” Broncos HC Vance Joseph said, via the Denver Post. “When you play a defense like ours – man-free (man coverage and free safety plays deep middle), five-man (pass) rush, aggressive – the shifts and motions really slow you down a little bit because you have to get aligned.

  • Broncos rookie TE Troy Fumagalli, who has been working his way back from sports hernia surgery, tells Ryan O’Halloran that he will ready for the start of training camp: “I should be 100 percent, no question, for camp. I was moving along (with the rehabilitation) when I got here but they wanted me to start over and that was a good thing. I’ve been working with the training staff and I trust them.”


Lions veteran WR Golden Tate believes second-year WR Kenny Golladay can be a “dominant” No. 1 receiver in the NFL.

“I saw freakish catches, man,” Tate said, via “Some real freakin’ freakish catches. Kenny’s still a young guy trying to figure it out, but he’s moving at a great pace. If he can just keep the mentality he has coming in, he studies, and just tries to get better every day, I’m telling you, this guy can be dominant. He’s a WR1 kind of guy.

“He’s a guy who’s getting better and better every single day — every single time he steps out,” Tate added. “His knowledge of the offense is getting better. He’s a guy who pays attention in the classroom, and he’s doing good. And when Kenny’s doing well, we’re all going to be doing well.”
