Mini-camp concludes

The Broncos mini-camp concluded on Sunday and was deemed a success by all involved. Read about some of the players who made an impact in today's story links.

Polish these gems - Denver Post - Adam Schefter
Monday, May 12, 2003 - Other than the unseasonably wintry weather, Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan could complain about little during his team's three-day minicamp. Newly acquired quarterback Jake Plummer showed his teammates why the Broncos' front office handed him millions and the responsibility of their huddle.

Galloway motivated to succeed - Denver Post - Woody Paige
Monday, May 12, 2003 - When he shredded the ligaments in his knee last season, Ahmaad Galloway immediately thought about his friend, Mario Bell, his dad, Cornell Galloway, and his exemplar, Terrell Davis. Galloway plays football for himself and Bell; he strives to excel at the game as Davis did; and he wants to make his dad proud.

Mitchell on mission to improve image - Denver Post - Patrick Saunders
Monday, May 12, 2003 - Rookie defensive end Clint Mitchell says he's a changed young man. The Denver Broncos bet a seventh-round draft choice that Mitchell lives up to his word. "I started turning my life around two years ago," Mitchell, 22, said Sunday after the Broncos finished a three-day minicamp. "I'm ready to play and get on with it. I want to be a starter in this league. It may not be this year, but I'm going to work my butt off to get there."

Jackson eager to prove he has more to offer - Denver Post - Patrick Saunders
Sunday, May 11, 2003 - Jarious Jackson believes he's got the stuff to be an NFL quarterback - for the Denver Broncos. That's why the restricted free agent agreed to the Broncos' $650,000 qualifying offer this month and never really considered trying to go elsewhere. That's why he has worked out harder in the offseason than ever before.

Pryce a new model of (fuel) efficiency - Rocky Mountain News - Lynn DeBruin
May 12, 2003 - He was paid to perform like a Ferrari. But in the second half of games last season, Trevor Pryce probably was feeling more like the family mini-van, one running on bad gas at that. "My legs just got heavy. I couldn't get them to turn over no matter what I did," the Denver Broncos defensive end said. "I was just out there trying to survive, running as fast as I can, which was not as fast as I was in the first half."

No. 1, with a bullet - Rocky Mountain News - Lynn DeBruin and Lee Rasizer
May 12, 2003 - Ashley Lelie felt the sting, and blamed it on Jake's zing. Then again, it could have been the chill in the air. "My hands hurt a little more," the Denver Broncos wide receiver said when asked if new quarterback Jake Plummer had a bit more mustard on his passes than Brian Griese did. "It might have been the cold, but I can feel a little bit more (zing)."

Middlebrooks' attitude healthy - Rocky Mountain News - Lee Rasizer
May 12, 2003 - Negativity took the weekend off, and after two hard-luck seasons, the "real" Willie Middlebrooks finally might have made an appearance at Denver Broncos mini-camp.

Plummer, Putzier quickly clicking - Daily Camera - Ryan Thorburn
May 12, 2003 - Jake and Jeb. Sounds like a couple of boys who love life in the slow lane that is Idaho. And it felt that way — so natural — this weekend as Jake Plummer and Jeb Putzier played catch like they were kids again in a Boise backyard. The developing duo could not have arrived here as Denver Broncos any differently.

Broncos Work to Finish Strongly As Mini-Camp Concludes -
May 11, 2003 - As Sunday morning's mini-camp practice neared its conclusion with on-field windsprints, Head Coach Mike Shanahan wanted nothing more than for his team to finish the weekend strongly. Midway through the conditioning session, as his Denver Broncos paused to catch their breaths following one of their requisite sprints, Shanahan turned to his team and implored them for more.
