Monday, February 14, 2005 - In a somewhat surprising development, the Broncos have decided to shop four-time Pro Bowl defensive end Trevor Pryce. According to three teams that have talked to Pryce's agent, Peter Schaffer, Pryce would be offered for draft picks. The Broncos likely would get a high to midround pick for Pryce, who played in just two games last season because of an injury.

Monday, February 14, 2005 - Faced with a difficult decision, the Broncos likely will be forced to allow one of their starting defensive backs to enter the open market. Denver's No. 2 and No. 3 cornerbacks, Lenny Walls and Kelly Herndon, will become restricted free agents March 2. Because of salary cap limitations, Denver likely will have to decide to make a commitment on just one. "There's no hard feelings, it's a business," Herndon said. "I love Denver, but like everyone I want to be a starter." Herndon said if a team were to offer him a starting position it would be difficult to pass up.
