Lions interested in Broncos safety - The Detroit News - Mike O'Hara
Thursday, March 3, 2005 - The Lions won't take their eyes off the quarterbacks, but they could take a safety-first approach in signing free agents. They are arranging a visit with Kenoy Kennedy, a four-year starter at strong safety for the Denver Broncos. He could be in Detroit as early as Monday. Kennedy is rated by some the top safety available in the 2005 free-agent class. He is regarded as a sure tackler, strong run defender and adequate on pass defense. "I know we have discussed him," Lions coach Steve Mariucci said Wednesday. "He's a candidate to visit. Nothing has been shored up or firmed up on a visit. There is a possibility he will be visiting us, along with some other teams." Upgrading the safety position, through free agency or the draft, is one of the Lions' priorities. They need to inject youth and athleticism into the position.

Since then the team has grown to become a major part of Denver and the Rocky Mountain region. Forty-five seasons of Broncos football have seen over 900 players pull a Broncos jersey over their heads for a game. The team has played 676 regular-season games and 30 playoff games. It has made 639 draft selections, honored 19 Ring of Famers and won two Super Bowls. Ronnie Bill has witnessed all of this. Though not the first name that springs to mind when most people think of the Broncos, Ronnie Bill concluded his 45th year of service as an employee of the Denver Broncos Football Club. That's every single season of the team's existence.
