Full pads, full tempers?

On the first day the Denver Broncos worked out in full pads at training camp Sunday, a pair of fights broke out.

The skirmishes started toward the end of practice. Center James Ferentz and linebacker Corey Nelson were at the center of them, per Mike Klis of 9 News.

“That’s the way we show love to one another,” said offensive lineman Russell Okung, who is still recovering from shoulder surgery.  “I think every family fights and every family has differences, so as long as we all come together for the common goal, we’ll be fine.”

Fighting outside: One way to show affection, I suppose.
