You won’t see this often — the biggest cheers in Sunday afternoon’s practice came for the punter.
Todd Sauerbrun blasted punt after punt during a drill and drew several loud cheers. The loudest came when he hit a punt standing on the 20-yard line, and it flew to the goal line on the other end of the field for an 80-yard kick.
“We’ve been watching him do that since he’s been here,” Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said.
Sauerbrun should be an immediate upgrade for the special teams.
