Broncos lose Bunkley to Saints

Brodrick Bunkley has spurned the Broncos' efforts to re-sign him, choosing instead to join the coachless Saints; Lindsay Jones says the team had been optimistic last night they would retain the 28-year-old tackle. According to Adam Schefter, Bunkley has agreed to a five-year deal with $9M in guarantees.

Bunkley had helped revitalize Denver's defense in 2011; according to PFF, he was the third-rated defensive tackle in the NFL overall, and the best against the run. The Broncos had acquired Bunkley last summer in exchange for a conditional 2013 draft choice believed to be a sixth- or seventh-rounder.
