Coach Gary Kubiak watched the new right side of the offensive line in tackle Rashad Butler and guard Antoine Caldwell. He also kept a close eye on their backups, tackle Derek Newton and guard Brandon Brooks.
“Butler and Caldwell played like they were more veterans than the other two, which you would expect, but I think they all did some good things,” Kubiak said. “The kid (Brooks) did some good things, especially in pass-pro (protection).
“I thought Newton was a little inconsistent but continues to flash. It’s going to be a good battle. We played those guys probably more than any of our older players, and that will be on a continuous basis over the next couple weeks. I think they kind of played the way I expected them to play.”
