Friday, June 25 - Just two weeks after he told coach Mike Shanahan that he planned to retire, defensive end Marco Coleman has reversed field, and the 12-year pro has now apprised the Denver Broncos that he will play in 2004.

The team has concluded its organized offseason workout schedule and so Coleman will not be able to practice with his teammates until training camp.
