Friday, April 01, 2005 - Trevor PryceTrevor Pryce, the Broncos' four-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman, could be released soon if the team cannot find a suitable trade partner, according to a source. The Broncos, who were involved in a flurry of personnel activity this week, are trying to free salary cap space and have been working for two months to move Pryce. A third option would be for the eight-year veteran to accept a substantial pay cut to remain with Denver. That option seems unlikely, however, which could lead to Pryce's outright release.
Droughns ready to prove point - News-Herald.com - Jeff Schudel
04/01/2005 - Reuben Droughns knows what everybody is thinking: He can rush for 1,240 yards with the Denver Broncos, but what can he do on the other part of the planet? Droughns walked into the fieldhouse of the Browns' complex in Berea Thursday wearing a wide grin, a black ballcap tight on his head and a black-and-gray sweatsuit, determined to show he can gain the yards with the Browns just as he did for the Broncos in a breakout season last year. Droughns was acquired from the Broncos Thursday in a rare player-for-players trade when the Browns sent defensive linemen Ebenezer Ekuban and Michael Myers to Denver. No draft choices were involved in the swap. "I have something to prove," Droughns said. "It's motivation for me. It feels like I haven't done anything until I leave the Denver system and do something for the Browns. I want something to come out of this. I want to prove it's not just the Denver system. It's the backs in the Denver system."
Legwold: Heimerdinger lays down new roots - Rocky Mountain News - Jeff Legwold
April 1, 2005 - Usually, coaches who have won two Super Bowls have a tree. A coaching tree that has reached into some other city, spreading whatever football gospel that helped raise the trophy a couple of times. Bill Walsh had a tree. George Seifert, Bill Parcells and Jimmy Johnson. Tree, tree and tree. They had coordinators move on, go other places, build other teams and spread the word. Mike Shanahan has won two Super Bowls with the Broncos, but his offensive coordinator after he was hired in Denver in 1995 was Gary Kubiak. And his offensive coordinator now is . . . Kubiak. No tree. His current defensive coordinator, Larry Coyer, is the fourth Shanahan has put in that job in his tenure, and only one of those, Greg Robinson, has been hired as a head coach at any level since calling the shots in the Broncos' defense.
Ahmaad Galloway: An eBay Find - OurSports Central - Tommy Brown
03/31/05 - An Ahmaad Galloway Denver Bronco rookie card was for sale yesterday on eBay with a Buy-It-Now price of twenty-five cents. It had exactly zero bids with only 3 days left to go in the auction. There was also a similar "Ahmad" Galloway card for sale on eBay with an opening bid of 99 cents. A word to the wise would say knowing how to spell can save you money. Ahmaad Galloway will be the starting running back in for the Frankfurt Galaxy in NFL Europe this season. The Denver Broncos drafted Galloway despite the major knee injury he suffered his senior season at Alabama. The former Crimson Tide running back played only sparingly last season for the Scottish Claymores in NFL Europe. His knee was not yet back to being 100% and the Claymores closed operations after the 2004 season and were replaced by the Hamburg Sea Devils. This season Galloway will be the feature back for the Galaxy, who look to return to the World Bowl after losing to the Berlin Thunder in the championship game.
