CBS - 'He isn't a bad guy' -- best friend still backs Broncos' Marshall
Pete Prisco talks with BMarsh's best friend, Jags WR Mike Walker. Walker comes to Marshall's defense, saying he would let Brandon date his sister. He also says Marshall's unhappiness not only stems from monetary issues and his hip injury, but also from the trade of Jay Cutler. Obviously Walker is biased, but it is nice to hear BMarsh's side of the story, even if it's from somebody else.
DP - Broncos' Buckhalter happy to be shareholder
Correll Buckhalter is happy both to be a Bronco and to still be playing despite several major injuries earlier in his career. Therefore, he is content being part of a potential rotation rather than being a workhorse back. Josh McDaniels calls CB the Broncos' fastest running back and praises his multidimensional skills.
LTC - Former Niwot, CU star McChesney stoked to have opportunity with Broncos

FOX - Summer two-a-days: NFC East, AFC West

NFL - Packers, WR Jennings still in talks about a contract extension
Interesting. The Pack's star fourth-year WR is entering the final year of his contract, is only scheduled to make $535,000 and has chosen to attend all voluntary OTAs despite hoping for a new contract. By the way, Jennings has 24 career touchdowns, 9 more than our guy. Oh, and Jennings was going to be the Broncos' choice (the pick was almost in) before Green Bay called and offered up Javon Walker. Could've had Jennings AND Marshall. Wow. Oops.
JS - Jennings, Packers agree on new deal
According to a source, Jennings already has a new contract which will make him the second-highest paid WR in the league per season. I know, Jennings and Marshall have very different situations; I just see a lot of irony here.
