Broncos | Van Pelt hoping to land as No. 2; may be No. 3

Bill Wilson, of the Daily Times-Call, reports Denver Broncos QB Bradlee Van Pelt will battle rookie QB Jay Cutler for the team's No. 2 quarterback spot in training camp. Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan said he will likely break camp with three quarterbacks this year, a luxury he waived the past three seasons. He has also continued to praise Van Pelt, insisting he's throwing better than ever and dismissing the notion he's the odd man out in the quarterback battle. Even though he's vastly improved according to his coaches, Van Pelt still shows the rough edges obvious to the most casual fans. So far, Van Pelt has found his way thanks to his raw athleticism and harsh competitiveness, attributes that usually aren't enough in the NFL. Since joining the Broncos as a seventh-round pick in the 2004 draft, Van Pelt as made slow but consistent progress in refining his skills to the standards of Shanahan's offensive system. With his window in Denver narrowed, Van Pelt knows he may ultimately be playing for a spot on another NFL team. He admits his immediate reaction to Denver's draft was to think a chance in another camp might be his best option.
