Englewood, Colo. • No trip to the White House, diamond-encrusted rings or ticker tape parade.

All the Denver Broncos have to show for their historic 2013 season is the heartache and humiliation of getting destroyed from the opening snap at the Super Bowl.

The AFC champs aim to use that 43-8 shellacking by Seattle as motivation for 2014 starting Monday, when they gather for the start of offseason workouts, stars Peyton Manning and Von Miller say.

"I wouldn’t want to get the sour taste out too quick because the year before we lost to the Ravens and that pushed us this last season. And the Super Bowl this year, I think it will just push us more," Miller said.

They realize what a daunting task awaits them as they try to become the first team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins to win the Super Bowl the year after losing it.

Denver General Manager John Elway has revamped his roster, even though the Broncos became the first team to surpass 600 points in a season.

Gone are veterans Champ Bailey, Robert Ayers, Eric Decker, Knowshon Moreno, Zane Beadles, Wesley Woodyard, Shaun Philips and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Their departures made room for Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward, DeMarcus Ware and Emmanuel Sanders.
