Jared Crick praises Broncos defensive leadership, experience, and preparation

Les Shapiro and Cameron Wolfe from the Denver Post talked with Broncos defensive end Jared Crick today on the Afternoon Drive. Crick played with the Houston Texans (some of this time was with Gary Kubiak) for four years and was signed by the Broncos this past April.

In the conversation Crick described himself as more of a run stopper than a pass rusher, but clearly hopes to contribute in any way he can. Crick came from a team that had a stellar defense of their own and sees a lot of the same things in Denver that he saw in Houston. When asked what he sees with his new mates on the Broncos, Crick had nothing but praise to share.

"Guys are out here working hard. Playing hard. Making plays. I guess you can tell why with all the leadership we have on the defensive line. Just the experience that we have. It's a great bunch to be around. They work hard, they practice hard, they prepare well. And like I said, they love football. So, it's a good fit."

There's also an interesting discussion in this sound clip about the improvement in Broncos corner Kayvon Webster. Not that long ago Webster looked like a guy about to get cut. It's nice to see him find his place with the Broncos.
