Sharpe may opt for TV gig

It was less than a month ago that tight end Shannon Sharpe told the Denver Broncos he would return for another season. With the departure of Deion Sanders from CBS' "NFL Today" show, Sharpe may be in line for the TV studio instead of the playing field.

May 14, 2004 - Just a month ago, Shannon Sharpe announced his decision to play another season for the Denver Broncos. But he might want to reconsider after hearing the news his dream TV job - one that would pay more than his 2004 NFL salary - now is available. CBS officials confirmed Thursday the network is dropping Deion Sanders from its NFL Today pregame show because of the former player's hefty contract demands.

Bowlen Memorial Broncos Centre sees the arrival of new players via free agency and the draft, and the return of familiar faces, all together to get ready for the upcoming season -- in short, the construction of a team. This year, that process is accentuated by the sights and sounds of a more traditional construction job. As the players go through the paces of offseason camps, workouts and conditioning, they are joined by the presence of cranes, concrete mixers, forklifts and hard hats, all part of a facility renovation and expansion costing approximately $4 million.

Elway Through the Years: 1986 - DenverBroncos.com - Andrew Mason
