DENVER BRONCOS

The temperature was well into triple digits and sweat-soaked Larry Fitzgerald was still going full bore Adidas Erik Karlsson Jersey , hauling in passes from Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen.

Entering his 15th season, with career receiving numbers among the best to have played the game, Fitzgerald is not talking about whether this year in the NFL will be his last.

"I'm just trying to make it to February in one piece," he said after the team's second day of minicamp on Wednesday.

Fitzgerald, who will turn 35 before the season begins, has taken part in every voluntary session with the same competitive mindset he's always had. As silly as it sounds, he said he plays like his job is on the line.

"When I say that I'm not saying it jokingly, that's the mentality that you have to have," he said. "All these guys, they're not bringing them in here for their own health. They're bringing them here to give them the opportunity to take your job. That's not lost on me ever. I'm fighting and competing just like everybody else is."

New coach Steve Wilks treasures having someone like Fitzgerald to help the Cardinals transition into a new system with the retirement of Bruce Arians.

"His commitment to this team, to this organization is invaluable," Wilks said. "It means a lot to me as a first-year head coach, a guy like that who can be an extension of you in the locker room, a true leader."

Fitzgerald is No. 1, with a lot of competition as to who will line up at the other receiver spots.

"The speed of the pack is determined by the speed of the leader," Wilks said. "He's one of the leaders. Guys are going to fall in line with him. The younger receivers are going to take his lead. It's great to have him out there. Not just being out there, but the way he goes about his business."

Fitzgerald said Wilks asked him to be there during voluntary OTAs and was effusive in his praise of new receivers coach Kevin Garver, who was assistant receivers coach in Arians' five seasons in Arizona.

Fitzgerald called Garver "one of the sharpest minds I've been around."

"I knew coach Wilks asked me early on to be here," Fitzgerald said. "And more so than that I wanted to start off on the right foot and make sure Kevin knew I was in the fight with him from day one. I want to be successful for Kevin and I knew in a few more years he'll be an offensive coordinator and a few years after that he'll be a head coach. I want to make sure that I'm doing everything I can while I can to help him elevate."

Fitzgerald has had a lot of quarterbacks throw him passes since he was drafted third overall by the Cardinals in 2004.

Now he's getting used to a new one in Bradford, who is being eased into workouts because he's coming off a knee injury.

Fitzgerald said the two are still learning each other Andre Burakovsky Jersey , as is expected.

"That comes through repetition," Fitzgerald said. "The same thing with Kurt Warner when he first got here and with Carson (Palmer) six years ago when he got here. It takes a little time but once two veterans are able to learn each other it makes it a lot easier."

With Bradford watching much of the time, Fitzgerald has caught a lot of balls from the rookie Rosen.

"I'm really impressed with how Josh has been able to grasp everything," Fitzgerald said.

Star running back David Johnson was absent again Wednesday in an apparent contract holdout.

Fitzgerald wouldn't say much about that but hinted at his support for the player.

"I don't know the details of it, honestly," Fitzgerald said. "I don't know anything that's going on. But I'm always for my teammates. I love my guys. I'll just leave it at that."

Fitzgerald is a well-documented world traveler. After the final minicamp session on Thursday, he and cornerback Patrick Peterson, a fellow avid golfer, are headed off together.

"We'll be over in St. Andrews playing some golf," he said. "We're going to have a good time. It's Pat's first time, so I want to beat him at the oldest golf course in the world."

Who's paying for the trip? At least indirectly, Fitzgerald said, Peterson is.

"Pat's paying for the trip after all the money I've taken from him this offseason," he said. "I'm appreciative of that."

DENVER BRONCOS (5-11)

OPEN CAMP: July 27, Englewood, Colorado

LAST YEAR: Coach Vance Joseph's first year was debacle in every phase. Denver's anemic offense cycled through three QBs during soured season that included eight-game skid, franchise's longest in half-century, and featured eight double-digit losses. Exhausted defense surrendered too many points and special teams were anything but. GM John Elway thought about firing Joseph but decided to give him second chance and then bolstered roster.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: QB Case Keenum, DE Bradley Chubb, RB Royce Freeman Womens Randall Cobb Jersey , WR Courtland Sutton, WR DeSean Hamilton, RT Jared Veldheer, LB Josey Jewell, CB Brock Tramaine, S Su'a Cravens, P Marquette King, part-time pass-rushing coach DeMarcus Ware.

IMPORTANT LOSSES: CB Aqib Talib, QB Trevor Siemian, RB C.J. Anderson, TE Virgil Green, WR Cody Latimer, ILB Corey Nelson, QB Brock Osweiler, strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson.

CAMP NEEDS: Broncos need Keenum to stay healthy first and foremost because behind him are two players who have combined four NFL starts, all by Paxton Lynch. Former first-round pick will be duking it out with 2017 seventh-rounder Chad Kelly for backup job in toned-down version of QB derby that's been annual rite of summer in Denver since Peyton Manning retired.

EXPECTATIONS: Broncos haven't had back-to-back losing seasons since 1971-72, and they have every intention of returning to playoffs in 2018. Having Chubb as cohort should make superstar LB Von Miller even better, and Denver's infusion of offensive talent through draft and free agency should take some pressure off defense that's been carrying team for three years now.
