Some quick notes:
- Kicker, Jason Elam, returned to the country and will begin talks with the Broncos this week. He has been with the Broncos the longest out of any player (since 93′), and there are some snaggles regarding guaranteed money. The Broncos should not be worried about his leg strength. Yes, he is 38 years old, but he has won his fair share of games for us.
- The Broncos general manager is out. Ted Sundquist was with the team in some sort of capacity for sixteen years, but Mike Shanahan thought that it was time for him to move on. When asked if he had been fired, Sundquist responded with “I didn’t resign.”
- Boss Bailey is beside himself when he thinks of his current situation. He said that playing with his brother, Champ Bailey, and good friend, Dre Bly, “feels unreal, really.” He also said “I don’t think we’ll be the 30th ranked run defense again.” I don’t think we will be either.
- The Broncos are looking into Jets’ defensive tackle, Dewayne Robertson. Being 317 pounds and very quick, he is best suited for the Broncos 4-3 scheme rather than the Jets’ 3-4 defensive scheme. Robertson was picked 4th overall in the 2003 draft, but did not pass a physical examination for the Bengals.
