May 2, 2005 - Having already dealt out plenty of second chances this off-season to players they believe needed a fresh start, the Denver Broncos are considering offering another one. Todd Sauerbrun, a three-time Pro Bowl selection as the Carolina Panthers punter, will visit the Broncos a week from today. If the Broncos like what they hear from the sometimes-controversial punter, they will offer a seventh-round pick in the 2006 draft to the Panthers for his services. The Panthers are expected to release Sauerbrun after June, and Carolina officials have said there are several teams interested in the veteran. Sauerbrun, who is not attending the team's current mini-camp, will be entering his 11th season in the NFL.

Five up-and-down seasons later, he begins the process of settling in Denver already comfortable with what he sees in front of him.
