"It's one of those things that really tugs at you," said Dennison, 51. "I'm a Colorado guy — I wasn't born here, but I've spent a lot of my life here — and it's been a long time with an organization. It's really, really hard to not be associated with the Broncos."

"Shannon Sharpe, a prolific receiving tight end, was not a powerful blocker. If you’re Jim Brown, you don’t have to block anybody. But if you’re a Hall of Fame tight end, I would like to think you would be more than just a receiver." OUCH.
