Chadiha: Bailey faces rocky road in FA The NFL hasn't been kind to aging stars seeking lucrative deals in recent years, meaning Champ Bailey may face a harsh reality on the free-agent market, writes Jeffri Chadiha.
Broncos make it official, cut Bailey The Denver Broncos will release cornerback Champ Bailey, who had a $1 million roster bonus due March 15, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Browner must sit first four games of 2014 Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner will be suspended for the first four games of the 2014 season as part of his reinstatement after a violation of the league's substance-abuse policy, the NFL and NFL Players Association jointly announced.
A confident Houston team wants to feature an efficient passing attack and attacking defense when it travels to Denver, but the Broncos will try to take these strengths away. Denver will consistently hand the ball off to RB Reuben Droughns in an effort to wear down the Texans' defense, which lacks depth.
Droughns rarely goes down with the first hit and he has the bulk to carry a heavy load. The Broncos' defense also has the talent in its front seven to slow down the running game without playing eight in the box. Houston QB David Carr will have to throw into tighter coverage and stay patient as a result. Will a steady performance for Carr mean another win for the Texans, or will Denver expose Houston's weaknesses by taking away their strengths?
