The Denver Broncos schedule drops tomorrow and there's expectations that, after failing to play in a primetime game last season other than Thursday Night Football, this team will be playing in multiple primetime games this year. The combination of adding Russell Wilson and playing in the vaunted AFC West are contributors to what should equate to the Broncos playing on bigger stages this upcoming season. We'll have complete coverage along with special guests Nathaniel Hackett, Kareem Jackson, Dave Logan, Rick Lewis and Alfred Williams tomorrow night at 6pm to break down the Broncos schedule release. Listen Live here!

John Elway said he's excited about the Broncos acquiring Russell Wilson and he hoped the team was healthier this season as they've struggled with it in the past. Elway doesn't get enough credit for how he left this team (good salary cap situation, talent, etc) but he couldn't solve the QB after Peyton Manning retired. In all fairness, I don't believe the trade happens without George Paton. John Elway is one of the most competitive people I've ever met and always wanted to "win" any negotiation. It's fair to wonder if he would've given up what was necessary to acquire Wilson from the Seahawks.

Alex Gold from 610 Sports in Kansas City joined the show to discuss the Chiefs offseason, his thoughts on the players they acquired during the NFL Draft and what Kansas City fans are saying about the AFC West. Listen to the full interview here.

Eric Eager from PFF joined the show to discuss the Broncos offseason, how good of a job they did closing the gap in the AFC West and why developmental QBs aren't viewed differently now. Listen to the full interview here.

KJ Hamler talked about how he wants to be used in a similar manner as Tyler Lockett. It's a high bar to set but definitely fits his athletic profile if he can stay healthy. Ronald Darby discussed expectations for Pat Surtain II and how impressed he's been with Russell Wilson's work ethic. Find the full details of their press conferences below.
