Denver Broncos headlines, game previews and interviews with our 9NEWS insider Mike Klis.

    1-on-1 with Broncos No. 9 overall pick Pat Surtain II, GM George Paton and head coach Vic Fangio

    1-on-1 with Broncos No. 9 overall pick Pat Surtain II, GM George Paton and head coach Vic Fangio

    In the latest episode of his podcast Klis' Mike Drop, our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis starts off by recapping Denver's draft, including the decision to go with Alabama cornerback Pat Surtain II with the No. 9 overall pick. It was a controversial one with QBs Justin Fields and Mac Jones still on the board, but obviously that's not Surtain's fault. Mike sat down with the rookie for an exclusive interview. 
    Next, Mike goes 1-on-1 with the man behind the team's draft decisions in general manager George Paton. It was Paton's first time being in charge of an NFL Draft and he stuck to his board. Mike dives into his thinking. 
    Finally, it's a chat with Broncos head coach Vic Fangio. Mike asks him where Aaron Rodgers is after rumors swirled Denver could acquire the reigning MVP on Thursday night. Fangio simply responds with "who?" and then dryly tells Mikes "next question."
    Mike then wraps up Denver's entire draft class and looks ahead to what a QB competition in training camp between Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock might look like. It's a loaded podcast with three great interviews!

    Offseason: 1-on-1 with Hall of Fame and former Broncos QB Peyton Manning, plus hear from Canton-bound John Lynch

    Super Bowl LV was kind of a dud. 
    Unless, of course, you were a Denver Broncos fan cheering against the Kansas City Chiefs. 
    In the latest episode of his podcast Klis' Mike Drop, our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis starts off by recapping the big game. It was one that turned into a nightmare for Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs and a 7th Super Bowl title for Tom Brady. Mike said last week the Chiefs "JV offensive line" would have trouble with the Bucs pass-rush and boy did they ever. 
    Next, a real treat, as Mike landed a 1-on-1 interview with former Broncos QB and now Hall of Famer Peyton Manning. Mike and Manning go back a long time, particularly during the four years Mike covered him in Denver. They discuss everything from how he received the news he'd be heading to Canton, his bitter defeat in Super Bowl XLVIII to the Seahawks and capturing Super Bowl 50 to end his career.

    Offseason: Super Bowl LV, 1-on-1 with Bucs center Ryan Jensen and more

    The Denver Broncos aren't playing in Super Bowl LV, but you already knew that. 
    In this week's edition of Klis' Mike Drop, our 9NEWS Broncos insider Mike Klis previews the game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mike sees a serious advantage for the Bucs defensive line against a depleted Chiefs offensive line. 
    Next, Mike welcomes Tampa Bay center Ryan Jensen to the podcast. Jensen is a Colorado native who played high school football at Fort Morgan and college football at CSU-Pueblo. Now, he's snapping the ball to Tom Brady in the biggest game of his life on Sunday. 
    Finally, Mike dives into the Broncos QB situation after the team missed out on trading for Matthew Stafford. The former Lions quarterback was moved for Jared Goff and draft picks to the Los Angeles Rams. Mike thinks Denver will now pursue Texans QB Deshaun Watson, but doesn't give them great odds of landing the superstar.

    This week the team introduced new general manager George Paton. 9NEWS insider Mike Klis sits down for an exclusive interview to get to know Denver's new man in charge on his latest podcast.
    Mike also discusses the Broncos' quarterback situation with Drew Lock, and if the team should pursue disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson in the latest Klis' Mike Drop. Mike suggests it would take a trade package of Drew Lock and Jerry Jeudy or Noah Fant or Dre'Mont Jones plus several draft picks to get it done.
    He also digs into the topic of Denver's veteran defense, which is likely to see changes coming soon.
