Broncos may not receive high pick for Droughns - Denver Post - Bill Williamson
Sunday, February 06, 2005 - Early indications are teams won't stumble over one another to get Reuben Droughns. The Broncos have given the running back permission to seek a trade in an attempt to stay at tailback - Denver wants him to return to fullback - and to subsequently get a bigger paycheck. The Broncos want a first- or second-round draft pick in return for Droughns, who had a breakout season in 2004, rushing for 1,240 yards. There are teams interested in Droughns, but the Broncos likely won't get that high of a pick. So if the team stands pat, so could he.

Sunday, February 06, 2005 - Ted Sundquist has made it to the next critical stage in the Seattle Seahawks' search for a new team president. The Broncos general manager is expected to meet with Seattle owner Paul Allen in Jacksonville, Fla., today before Super Bowl XXXIX. Sundquist is part of a smaller list of candidates, not expected to be more than five, who'll meet with Seattle officials for the vacant position. Sundquist was part of an initial group of about 15 candidates who were interviewed by a member of the Seahawks' board of directors. The job became open when Seattle fired Bob Whitsitt as president last month. The team is expected to fill the position in the next 10 days. Top candidates may include Miami's Bryan Wiedmeier and Detroit's Tom Lewand.
