April 11, 2003 - While most Denver Broncos players are looking for an edge through off-season workouts, running back Clinton Portis already has found it. The Edge, that is. Portis, noticeably missing from the Broncos' group sessions at Dove Valley the past two weeks, is getting in shape by working out in South Florida with Indianapolis Colts running back Edgerrin James and other former University of Miami stars.

April 10, 2003 - Many consider the strength of Denver's defense to be its linebackers. John Mobley, Al Wilson and Ian Gold have grown into a solid group who play well together and may be the strongest threesome in the NFL. Nevertheless, you can never have too much depth and the crop of linebackers coming out in the 2003 NFL Draft class may provide an opportunity for the Broncos to add to that.


April 10, 2003 - The Denver Broncos Thursday named Jim Barlow as Vice President of Finance for the National Football League team.

Barlow, 44, is a Certified Public Accountant and has broad experience heading up the financial affairs of major organizations.

After graduation from the University of Colorado in 1981, Barlow was in public accounting from 1981-88, then was Chief Financial Officer of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science from 1989-99. In that position he supervised the entire budgetary and financial operation for one of the nation's largest museums, with over two million annual visitors and significant corporate sponsorships.

From 1999 until 2002 Barlow was Senior Vice President and CFO of the CU Foundation, one of the nation's largest foundations at a public university.

He spent the last year as an independent consultant for several Denver corporations.

Raised in the Denver area, Jim and his wife Meg McClellan have two children, daughter Kelsey, age eight, and son Andrew, who is six.
