Within it, the team reasserted that Rice had misled them, coach John Harbaugh denied seeking Rice's release, and owner Steve Bisciotti downplayed his relationship with Roger Goodell.
Shortly thereafter, Bisciotti held a rambling presser, during which he suggested that all of ESPN's sources were friends of Rice's.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! As their bye week begins, Denver's linebacker corps is nearing full strength.
Danny Trevathan, who made the trip to Seattle but was held out, will continue to practice, and is expected back for the Week 5 game against Arizona.
Additionally, the team figures to get Lerentee McCray back next week; he missed the Seattle game with a sprained knee ligament.
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! It was another injury-ravaged Sunday around the league.
Pittsburgh linebackers Ryan Shazier (sprained MCL) and Jarvis Jones (wrist surgery), and Ike Taylor (broken forearm) each suffered serious injuries.
Their AFCN rival Ravens lost tight end Dennis Pitta to a dislocated hip that may also be fractured.
With their loss at Seattle on Sunday, the Broncos fell into a first-place tie with the Chargers (2-1), who thumped the Bills 22-10 in Buffalo.
Philip Rivers threw a pair of touchdown passes to former friend Eddie Royal, but Danny Woodhead was lost to a leg injury that figures to end his season.
You’ll be tempted to look at the final score today and feel some sort of moral victory.
You’ll hear all the pundits next week. It will go something like this. The Broncos had to show they could hang with Seattle, they’ll say. And they did.
The Broncos never quit, they’ll say. They can build on this.
As Marcellus Wallace might say, that’s just pride f#$king with you.
Is there such a thing as a moral victory in a losing effort for a Super Bowl favorite?
Honestly, we're not sure.
After second-half collapses had left Denver holding on for one-score wins in their first two games, the Broncos outscored the Seahawks 17-3 in the third and fourth quarters on Sunday.
Inactives: Broncos - Danny Trevathan, Tony Carter, Cody Latimer, Lerentee McCray, Mitch Unrein, Ben Garland, Michael Schofield
Seahawks - LB Bruce Irvin, T Garry Gilliam, T Andrew McDonald, RB Christine Michael, DE Greg Scruggs, WR Kevin Norwood, CB Tharold Simon.
Owner Pat Bowlen has indicated a strong desire to keep specifics of his estate planning private, and the Denver Broncos intend to honor his wishes.
Enjoy the games, and Go Raiders (at New England) and Chargers (at Buffalo)!
