Wednesday, April 06, 2005 - In a remarkable turnaround, the two-month Trevor Pryce saga ended Tuesday with the four-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman staying in Denver. After a few days of negotiations, the Broncos and Pryce's agent, Peter Schaffer, finalized a new contract that will keep Pryce with the Broncos and give the team more than $3 million in salary cap room. The deal is official, but terms were not disclosed. Pryce, who had appeared to be on his way out of town via trade or release, has three years remaining on his contract. Before the restructuring, Pryce had a salary cap number of $9,166,000. In April 2001, Pryce signed a seven-year, $60 million contract, including an $11 million signing bonus.
Bell seeks bulk for bigger role - Denver Post - Patrick Saunders
Wednesday, April 06, 2005 - Second-year Broncos running back Tatum Bell is likely to be a starter in 2005. With that in mind, Bell has two major off- season goals: put on muscle and improve his receiving skills. Bell, who rushed for 396 yards last season, weighs about 208 pounds. His goal is to beef up to 215, allowing him to cushion the pounding of the long NFL season. Bell played the final four games of 2004 with an injured shoulder.
Warren set to commission a new beginning - Rocky Mountain News - Lee Rasizer
April 6, 2005 - It isn't exactly true that names will never hurt you, as the old saying insists. Gerard Warren, one of the newest Denver Broncos, had some pretty colorful labels affixed to him publicly during four eventful seasons with the Cleveland Browns. Few of them were complimentary. Flamboyant. Immature. Pampered. Coddled. Most of those descriptions left him unfazed. "It rolls off of me," he said this week. "I'm a Teflon Don."
Lynch finally to get his say on hefty fine - Rocky Mountain News - Jeff Legwold
April 6, 2005 - A little more than three months after Denver Broncos safety John Lynch was fined $75,000 for a hit on Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark in the 2004 regular- season finale, Lynch finally will have his say in the matter. Lynch, who was at the Broncos' facility Tuesday for the team's off-season conditioning program, will meet face-to-face with NFL officials at the league's Manhattan offices a week from today as part of his appeal. "And I'm optimistic. . . . I really am," Lynch said. "I'm confident once we lay things out, things will work out."
