Horse Tracks 8/8/09 - Knowshon signed; HOF Edition


DB - All Aboard: Moreno Agrees to Terms

DP - Moreno signs with Broncos, 8 days late - Mike Klis
Honestly, I'd say the Broncos did quite a job getting Knowshon signed. The four players between DHB and Moreno are still without contracts, and the percentage increase for Knowshon's guarantee is less than that of Robert Ayers.

DB - Break in Action - Zach Eisendrath
Friday saw a lighter practice, while today is a much-welcomed day off. QB coach Mike McCoy says his transition from Carolina has been easy, as his training under Dan Henning years ago was quite similar to McDaniels' under Charlie Weis. Kenny Peterson and Chris Baker fielded punts to earn a curfew-free Friday.

DB - Day 8 Blog - Gray Caldwell
Nic Clemons is apparently recovered from his injury, while Wes Woodyard left practice with a possible injury. The LBs coaches have been working daily on improving the players' interception skills. I'll have to agree; fantastic playlist today - I'd love to know who was responsible for that one...

DB - Day 8: McDaniels - Broncos TV
McDaniels says to expect lots of 3-WR formations this year, meaning more action for Brandon Stokley than we're used to seeing.

NFP - Biggs: Denver's go-to guy
Not sure why we don't learn stuff like this from the local guys (unless I missed it), but Brandon Stokley apparently played a huge role in Eddie Royal's life last year.

DB - Day 8: McCoy - Broncos TV
Mike McCoy called it a "very easy decision" to head back to Denver. He stressed that the offense will be molded to best utilize the players' skills, rather than vice versa.

DB - Day 8: Baker - Broncos TV
Chris Baker discusses his punt-fielding skills and his dreams of catching TD passes. He says he's played NT for a long time and understands it's not a "glory" position.

DB - A Few Minutes With Ryan Torain - Broncos TV
Chris Hall catches up with Ryan Torain, who answers fan questions. Everyday of his offseason was rehab, and he admits to having been a Chefs fan growing up in Kansas. But he said, "That's all over now."
