How have you seen Brandon Carr get better this year? It seems like he’s had a pretty promising year. Where have you seen him improve over the course of this season?
CRENNEL: “I think the biggest improvement has been that teams have seemed to test him a little bit this year, and he’s been able to stand up to the test and make plays. I think that’s the biggest improvement. I think he’s gained confidence in his game and his ability and what he feels like he can do week-in and week-out, and that’s a positive.”
For now, the 38-year old center isn’t ready to say that Friday will be his final NFL practice or Sunday his last NFL game.
“It’s to be determined,” Wiegmann said of his retirement. “We still have a football game to play and we’re still trying to beat the Broncos. I’ll come in on Monday and say bye to everybody for this year. We’ll see after that.”
The best material, as it turned out, came from an offensive lineman.
“I mean, I love Kyle, but I couldn’t care less,” Denver’s Zane Beadles said about facing his former teammate. “It’s the Broncos versus the Chiefs. We’ve got to beat the Chiefs to get in the playoffs. And it doesn’t matter who’s on their team.”
The lawsuit only lists two individuals by name as plaintiffs — Orton, now 29, a former quarterback for the Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos, and Atlanta lawyer Edward Rappaport. Plaintiffs’ attorney Daniel Konicek told The Associated Press the others he represents in the suit are all NFL players he declined to identify.
“I think this says a lot about the vulnerabilities of NFL players — that they rely on the expertise of others,” he said. “They relied on people who were supposed to have their best interests in mind.”
Meanwhile, former Denver Broncos and current St. Louis Rams receiver Brandon Lloyd said he wants to follow McDaniels next season wherever the coach lands. Lloyd is a free agent. Making the situation even more interesting is the fact that Lloyd is from Kansas City. The Chiefs’ No. 1 receiver Dwayne Bowe, who will be a free agent, is better and younger than Lloyd. But Lloyd is a quality player who thrilled under McDaniels and he would be less expensive than Bowe.
