Thursday marks the final day of Denver Broncos mandatory minicamp, but head coach Vic Fangio opted to give his players a day off.

Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic shared that players will still have meetings but that there will be no on-field practice.

Instead of practice, players will take part in a fun-filled afternoon that includes shaved Italian Ice, a dunk tank, water-balloon toss and a home run derby.

Head coach Vic Fangio is a pretty old-school coach when it comes to his approach on the field. Heck, there’s a rumor that he wants to implement a 1960s-style training camp this summer.

Before that grueling gauntlet takes place, however, he is giving his players some fun memories.
