Lewis signs with Baltimore - Denver Post
03/13/2006 - Running back Jamal Lewis will not be a Bronco. Lewis - scheduled to visit the Broncos today - agreed to a three-year deal to remain in Baltimore this morning. The Broncos were targeting Lewis because he fit their offensive system. With Lewis now off the market, Denver will likely concentrate on the draft in its search for a tailback. As of now, the in-house favorite to be the starting tailback is Ron Dayne, who re-signed Saturday.

March 13, 2006 - While the Broncos' work in free agency thus far has had a take-care-of-their-own approach to it, the feeling around the league Sunday night was that the Broncos now were asking themselves about some players with question marks. New York Jets defensive end John Abraham, who is at the top of the Broncos' list, is scheduled to visit the Broncos this week. While neither Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist nor coach Mike Shanahan returned calls Sunday, Abraham was believed to have lined up visits in the coming days to Denver, Seattle, Cleveland and Atlanta as his agent, Tony Agnone, tries to find a trade partner for the Jets' three-time Pro Bowl selection.

Monday, March 13, 2006 - Free agency was delayed over a week before it began in the late-evening hours last Friday in the Mountain Time Zone, but for the Broncos, some of the most important moves had been long since completed. Specifically, the ones to ensure that the team's starting offensive line will return for the coming season, allowing the Broncos to ensure continuity on a five-man first-team unit that includes two players from the team's most recent world-championship season in 1998. Negotiating multi-year contracts with center Tom Nalen and left tackle Matt Lepsis meant that the Broncos entered the league year with one key area of the team secure, and a key to the team's No. 2-ranked rushing game and fifth-ranked offense intact.
