CAMP CONFIDENTIAL: The Broncos figure to coast to another division crown in the weak AFC West as long as Peyton Manning is healthy and on the field. Postseason success is another matter and will depend on whether Denver finds a consistent running threat and improves the defense on the back end. Willis McGahee's release could turn the backfield into a committee-type setup with Ronnie Hillman, rookie Montee Ball and veteran Knowshon Moreno all in the picture. Talented but underachieving cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was brought in to help the secondary along with veteran Quentin Jammer, who is expected to move to safety. Manning's tremendous receiving corps of Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker was only bolstered by the addition of slot star Wes Welker from New England.
