As a relief from the off-season speculation - in particular the arrival of Brady Quinn - and in homage to the departure of fan-favorite Peyton Hillis, I want to look back over the last ten years at the players the Broncos have either traded away, cut or allowed to leave via free agency. The question is simple: Who do you wish had never been allowed to leave, or wish the Broncos had fought (or paid) to keep around?
I'll leave a couple of the really obvious ones open to comment from other people, but two of mine would be Bertrand Berry and Tony Jones. Berry seemed to fall into the Broncos pattern in the first half of the decade of "Get double-digit sacks, don't get resigned" - a mentality I still scratch my head at. Jones may have been on the decline, but was released with very little class. I feel he could have made a significant impact on the next two or three seasons.
So who is your nostalgic soft spot?
