New, comments

Dumervil: "Happy to be a Bronco" -
"I've always played this game without the big contracts or the big long-term extensions, so I'll continue to do so," said the NFL's reigning sack leader. "I'm a true believer that when you take care of things the right way, good things happen."

A Different Kind of Quarterback -
Different in the sense that in addition to his 9,285 passing yards for 88 touchdowns and just 18 interceptions at the University of Florida, he gained 2,947 yards on the ground with an SEC-record 57 rushing touchdowns. Different because he rushed for a touchdown on a designed quarterback scramble on his first play as a Gator and operated mostly out of the shotgun for the rest of his collegiate career. Different because he was the first player in NCAA history to win the Heisman Trophy as a sophomore. Different because he's a two-time BCS National Champion.
