Brodrick Bunkley was perhaps the largest factor in the Denver Broncos‘ 2011 defensive turnaround, literally and figuratively.

He won’t be a Denver Bronco in 2012.

The freshly-suspended New Orleans Saints have signed Bunkley to a five-year deal worth $25 million, according to multiple reports.

The Broncos will have to add DT depth in the draft and free agency, as well as relying on Ty Warren to be healthy this year. Bunkley’s departure leaves the Broncos with a massive hole to fill.

Tebow's pal: He wants to play in Florida

Tim Tebow wants to take his talents back to Florida, according to a close friend of the unconventional quarterback.

An Open Letter To John Elway: From a Bronco Fan

Dear John Elway, Thank you, thank you, a thousand times, thank you. You found a way out of the Tim Tebow era and no one will ever question it.
