Broncos’ Quinn gets to work at Dove Valley
The Denver Post
Forgive Brady Quinn if he hasn’t familiarized himself with all of the Denver hotspots yet.
Since arriving in Denver on Monday in a trade with the Cleveland Browns, Quinn has been spending much of his time in the weight room, training room and video room at the Broncos’ Dove Valley headquarters.
“I’ve been watching a lot of film and getting into the playbook. There is a lot of familiarity with the offense and what I’ve been accustomed to,” Quinn said.
Quinn held his first press conference with Denver reporters today. The start of his press conference was delayed – by Quinn’s choice – to watch the end of NCAA basketball tournament game between Quinn’s alma mater Notre Dame and Old Dominion. Quinn’s Fighting Irish lost – the first upset of the day.
Quinn was momentarily disappointed, but was immediately upbeat once he started answering questions about his arrival in Denver.
“I couldn’t be any more thankful and fortunate,” Quinn said. “The guys on the team are unbelievable. Working out with them, you see their competitive nature, the way they work, their dedication. The only tough adjustment now has been the altitude, going up and down the stairs has been a little rough here. That, amongst other things (strength coach Rich) Tuten has us doing.”
The Broncos will conclude their first week of their offseason conditioning program Friday. The voluntary program runs through late June, with the first voluntary minicamp after the draft, likely in early May.
