    The month of March was a big one for Broncos fans. Free agency began, and Peyton Manning became a Bronco along with 10 other free agents.

    April is set to possibly top it.

    The end of the month brings the 2012 NFL Draft and the full schedule release. But the excitement got started early this month, as on Tuesday, the NFL unveiled all 32 teams’ new Nike uniforms.

    On Wednesday, the Broncos’ preseason schedule was announced:
    Week 1: at Chicago Bears — TBD (Aug. 9-13)
    Week 2: vs. Seattle Seahawks — TBD (Aug. 16-20)
    Week 3: vs. San Francisco 49ers — Sunday, Aug. 26, 2 p.m. MDT (Nationally televised on FOX)
    Week 4: at Arizona Cardinals — TBD (Aug. 29-30)

    It marks the 15th consecutive season the Broncos have opened the preseason on the road, extending the franchise record.


    All four of Denver’s opponents reside in the NFC. And all four are relatively familiar preseason foes.

    San Francisco is Denver’s most common preseason opponent, with this year’s matchup representing the 34th between the two clubs. Arizona is Denver’s second-most common preseason opponent, and the Broncos met the Seahawks as well in the 2011 preseason.

    Denver matched up with the same four teams in the 2009 preseason.

    The Broncos have won at least one preseason game in every year but one — the club’s inaugural 1960 campaign. Denver owns a 125-112 (.527) all-time record in the preseason and has registered at least a .500 record in the preseason during 14 of the last 16 seasons.

    For the 43rd consecutive year, 850 KOA will broadcast all Broncos games as the team’s radio-rights holder. KUSA-TV (9News), the club’s partner station, will televise all of Denver’s preseason games locally with the exception of its nationally televised game against San Francisco.

    The exact dates and times of each game will be announced later this month along with the team’s complete 2012 regular-season schedule.

                I'm thinking he will play a lot more than he usually does in preseason, trying to break in the new offense and get chemistry with the receivers. But you never know.

                    I think he'll play, but probably just a quarter, maybe two to get timing down with the offense.

                      Wow. Talk about being able to flaunt Manning around to the teams that wanted him. To bad you cant replace Chicago with Tennessee or Miami.

                          At least we get to play Cutler again.. May be in Chicago, but I'm satisfied with that.
