In addition to the players, the Broncos will also relinquish one of this year's draft choices, presumably a fifth round selection.
Bly, an eight-year veteran from North Carolna, is considered by many to be one of the best cornerbacks in the league, with career numbers to prove it. In eight seasons he has intercepted 31 passes, scored eight touchdowns (five on interception returns, two on fumble returns and one punt return) and forced 17 fumbles. Last season with the Lions Bly tied for the team lead with three interceptions and led Detroit with 18 passes defended and four forced fumbles.
Bly, who will take over the slot left vacant when Darrent Williams was killed in a drive-by shooting, will join forces with fellow Pro Bowler Champ Bailey in the secondary, giving Denver its strongest defensive backfield of the Mike Shanahan era.
Stay tuned to Broncos Update for futher information as the story develops. An official announcement will be made on Friday.
