Champ Bailey won’t play in the Denver Broncos’ opener against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night because of a sprained left foot.
Around these parts, John Elway is affectionately known as the “Duke” for scrambling and slinging his way to a Hall of Fame career.
The Broncos signed the free-agent cornerback Quentin Jammer on Wednesday. He’s the third longtime San Diego Chargers player to bolt for their AFC rivals this offseason.
Chris Harris has had a penchant for beating out veteran cornerbacks ever since joining the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas in 2011.
Whenever cornerback Kayvon Webster arrived at practice at South Florida, he’d proclaim, “Champ Bailey’s here.”
Denver Broncos fans still feel like they’ve been run over by a truck and cornerback Chris Harris said he’s not been sleeping well after the heartbreaking loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
Denver fans and players were no doubt disappointed in the Broncos loss to Baltimore in double overtime, Saturday. Everything the orange and blue did right in the season, they did wrong in the postseason game to end their season abruptly.
In what could be the last game for seven-time All Pro Ray Lewis, who is retiring after this season, the Broncos and Ravens meet Saturday in the AFC divisional playoffs. Two NFL icons, each 3 wins away from a second championship.
John Elway insisted that every one of the Denver Broncos was better the second Peyton Manning put his signature on that nearly $100 million contract last spring.
In a league where injuries can make or break a team’s season, it’s Denver’s lack of them, along with its ability to replace the few players who do go out, that has turned the Broncos into legitimate Super Bowl contenders with a nine-game winning streak.
