Super Bowl 48 is slowly but surely approaching, with the big event only four days away. After a couple days of media frenzy, the Seahawks and Broncos finally returned to football activities, starting practice on Wednesday. With anticipation reaching a fever pitch, here's the latest content from Broncos blog Mile High Report that you may have missed.
Running back Knowshon Moreno is an impending free agent, and is expected to chase a big payday after a breakout 2013 season. He does have a team option for 2014, but it doesn't appear the Broncos will exercise that option. Waiting in the wings they have rookie Montee Ball, who had an expanded role down the stretch. Scott Payne examines the Broncos' alternatives if they let Moreno test the market in the offseason.
The Broncos haven't been to the Super Bowl in 15 years, and plenty of things have changed since John Elway. John Bena, a longtime fan who remembers the highs and lows of Denver's Super Bowl runs in the '80s, plans on just enjoying the ride in 2014, win or lose.
The big question heading into the game is whether or not it will snow. So far, it doesn't look like we will be getting any. The current forecast from Weather.com calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of 39 degrees and a low of 26. Chilly weather, to be sure, but it's far from the Snowpocalypse many were predicting when the NFL awarded the game to MetLife Stadium.
