ENGLEWOOD Connor McGovern Jersey , Colo. (AP)Everywhere he looks at the moment Broncos linebacker Shane Ray spots motivation.Denver selecting another pass rusher in Bradley Chubb with the No. 5 overall pick? Fuel.Not having his fifth-year option picked up by the team? More incentive.Being bashed on social media following an injury-riddled 2017 season? Added drive.Not that long ago, Ray was all the rage – a first-round pick out of Missouri to play alongside Von Miller. But another pass-rusher has suddenly soared in popularity in Chubb, whose selection on draft night had Miller hooting and hollering .Ray gets it. He takes it all in stride. He’s trying to, anyway.”For somebody to come and just try to shove me to the side, I’m not that type of player,” Ray said after a team workout Tuesday. ”I’m going to come out here and continue to be what my coaches know that I can be, my teammates, and I’m not going to let the outside people try to characterize who I am and what’s going to happen for this team.”I’ve got to focus on being me. I’ve got to focus on coming out here and having a great season, and helping my team and securing my future, wherever it is.”Ray insisted he understands why Broncos boss John Elway and the team balked at picking up his option. Last season wasn’t what he envisioned, either. He broke his left wrist in July, underwent three surgeries that caused him to miss the opening six games. He had one sack over the next eight contests before going back on injury reserve.His fifth-year option – $9.23 million – would have been worth more than the four-year, $9,118,894 rookie contract he signed after the Broncos selected him with the 23rd overall pick in 2015. Ray Khari Willis Jersey , who recently turned 25, has started just 15 games in three NFL seasons, collecting 13 sacks and recovering two fumbles.”Do you invest $9 million in a guy who had three wrist surgeries the year prior? You know, maybe not?” Ray said. ”I can’t blame John for that, and I can’t focus on that. That’s not something I’m going to allow to mess up my focus or my commitment to the team.”On draft night, Ray said he, too, cheered the selection of Chubb, even if it was direct competition. Ray also vowed to teach Chubb the tricks of the pass-rushing trade. After all, that’s what DeMarcus Ware did for him.So far, Ray’s been impressed by Chubb.”He’s taking notes from me, Von, Shaq (Barrett), the coaches,” Ray said. ”He’s going to develop into a great player because of that.”One thing: Ray will be standing in his way of a starting role.”It’s going to be hell of a fight Josh Allen Jersey ,” Ray said, ”for somebody to come and take what I’ve worked so hard for my whole life.”While Ray’s wrist continues to heal – he’s not allowed to do push-ups or bench press yet – Ray spent the offseason increasing his leg strength. He’s beefed up from 219 pounds to around 247.”I haven’t been this big in three years,” Ray said. ”It’s a nice additional weight I felt I needed … playing the run, just getting into the backfield and moving guys around.”Broncos coach Vance Joseph can almost sense a hungry Ray, who’s trying to hold off Chubb and prove he’s worth a lucrative new deal.”You’re going to have to go out and earn your keep in this league,” Joseph said. ”If you earn it, you keep it. He understands that. So, Shane has been in a great mood. … I’ve been proud of how Shane’s handled those things because obviously he reads the papers and what you guys write about that stuff.”He’s not reading this: What’s being said on social media. He’s tuned it out after a series of exchanges with his Twitter followers during the draft weekend.”It’s stressful, when you’ve got all these other things to worry about in life and have other people that are trying to bash you every moment they get,” Ray explained. ”I don’t have time for it.”Ray had a solid rookie season that included a pair of tackles and a forced fumble in the Broncos’ win over Carolina in Super Bowl 50. In 2016, he posted eight sacks.”Last year, I wasn’t the same me due to injury,” Ray said. ”For people holding that against me, hey, it is what it is. I don’t care. … Focus on you and eliminate the outside noise and life will be a lot easier.”—AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Stapleton contributed.— ENGLEWOOD Jawaan Taylor Jersey , Colo. (AP) — In just about every season he’s been in charge of football operations in Denver, John Elway has had to address major concerns at one or both of the two most consequential positions in the NFL: head coach and quarterback.This offseason, he made changes at both spots, hiring Vic Fangio and acquiring Joe Flacco in a trade that will become official next month when the league’s new year begins.Here’s a look at Elway’s head coaches and quarterbacks:—2011 (Coach No. 1, QBs No. 1, 2).Elway hires John Fox, but a trade of QB Kyle Orton fizzles and Orton wins the job in camp. A month later, the Broncos appear to join the “Suck for Luck” crusade for Stanford standout Andrew Luck but Tim Tebow sparks a run that wins the middling AFC West at 8-8, and his 80-yard TD toss to Demaryius Thomas in OT stuns the Steelers in the playoffs. The giddiness subsides in a 45-10 loss at New England. Soon, Tebowmania would be replaced by Manningmania.—2012: (QB No. 3).After luring the biggest free agent prize in NFL history in Peyton Manning, Elway trades Tebow to the Jets. He has Russell Wilson in for a pre-draft visit but instead selects Brock Osweiler as Manning’s understudy. Manning leads Denver to a 13-3 record and the AFC’s top seed. But Flacco’s 70-yard TD toss over safety Rahim Moore in the final minute of regulation and Fox’s “take a knee edict” to play for overtime doom Manning to another early playoff exit.—2013:Manning again leads the Broncos to a 13-3 mark on the strength of an NFL-record 606-point season but injuries catch up to them in a stinging 43-8 loss to Seattle in the Super Bowl. Sifting through the rubble of yet another Super Bowl blowout, Elway signs free agents Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward, DeMarcus Ware and Emmanuel Sanders, and that foursome becomes the building blocks for a championship team two years later.—2014:Manning leads Denver to a 12-4 record but he starts to show signs of aging and gets hurt down the stretch. Again he’s one-and-done in the playoffs Josh Oliver Jersey , this time losing to his old team, the Colts. Afterward, Manning admits he’s unsure if he’ll return in 2015. Fox won’t. He and Elway agree to a mutual split the next day and Fox heads to Chicago. Manning decides to put off retirement but takes a $4 million pay cut with the chance to earn it all back, which he will.—2015: (Coach No. 2, QB 4).Elway lures Gary Kubiak back to Denver as Fox’s replacement and his former backup and ex-coordinator maneuvers the Broncos through a minefield of issues in another 12-4 season. Kubiak benches an injured Manning for Osweiler for seven games but brings him back for the playoffs. Denver’s defense carries Manning across the finish line with a 24-10 win over Carolina in Super Bowl 50, the franchise’s third title, all with Elway at the helm as either QB or GM.—2016: (QBs 5, 6 and 7).Manning retires a month after the Super Bowl and Osweiler bolts for Houston in free agency, sending Elway on a long search for a worthy successor. He trades for Mark Sanchez and moves up in the draft to select Paxton Lynch out of Memphis only to watch the steady Trevor Siemian, his 2015 seventh-rounder, beat them both out. The Broncos, however, stumble to 9-7, missing the playoffs and Kubiak steps down afterward.—2017: (Coach No. 3).Elway interviews Kyle Shanahan but chooses Vance Joseph as his head coach, something he’d quickly regret http://www.jaguarscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-quincy-williams-ii-jersey , flirting with the idea of re-hiring Mike Shanahan before the year is even out. For the second straight summer, Siemian beats out Lynch and Osweiler returns to Denver after failures in Houston and Cleveland. All three quarterbacks take turns starting in a dismal 5-11 season. Elway decides to keep Joseph rather than hiring his old coach for a reunion tour.—2018: (QB No. 8 and 9).Elway signs free agent Case Keenum to a two-year, $36 million deal and trades Siemian to the Vikings to make way for Lynch to win the backup job. But Lynch can’t even beat out another seventh-rounder in Chad Kelly and gets cut after starting just four games in two seasons. The Broncos jettison Kelly, too, after his trespassing arrest at midseason following a single snap, a kneel-down. A 6-10 finish costs Joseph his job after two years.—2019: (Coach No. 4, QB. No. 10).Elway hires Fangio, 60, who’s never been a head coach. Kubiak, who has been a special adviser in the front office, wants to return to a coaching role, but his desire to bring along former lieutenants Brian Pariani and Rick Dennison is a deal-breaker. Fangio instead hires 49ers QB coach Rich Scangarello as his offensive coordinator and Kubiak leaves for the Vikings. Elway agrees to send the fourth-round draft pick he got in the Demaryius Thomas trade to the Ravens for Flacco.
