New, comments


DB - Broncos Make Several Moves - Zach Eisendrath
Denver acquired DL Le Kevin Smith from the Pats, signed RB Marcus Thigpen, and waived DL Rulon Davis and OG Pat Murray.

DB - Upon Further Review - Zach Eisendrath
Kyle Orton is mostly pleased with Friday's performance after studying the film; he's most upset with his first INT and says he's not prone to turnovers. Meanwhile, Josh McDaniels says some delayed substitutions cost the team some timeouts.

DP - Again, Broncos' Marshall seeks pay boost - Mike Klis
According to Klis, Brandon Marshall's agent again requested a new contract for the WR. When turned back, another trade request was reportedly made, and denied.
