Obo Okoronkwo progressing, but won’t be handed a roster spot: ‘He’s gotta earn it’ | RamsWire

For those of you expecting the 5th-round draftee out of Oklahoma to come in and be the answer to our pass-rushing woes: McVay says Obo’s gotta earn it.

Broncos run defense looks to back bounce against Todd Gurley and the Rams | Broncos Official

I’m not sure what back-bouncing is, but I’m guessing it’s akin to bouncing back. The Donks allowed 323 on the ground last week, so if Suh thinks the Rams are ‘terrible,’ I wonder what that makes the Denver NFL team...

Wade Phillips says he got too much credit for the Broncos’ defense | CBS Sports
