ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Peyton Manning and Champ Bailey are giving the Denver Broncos' restocked secondary two thumbs-up.
Replacing retired safety Brian Dawkins in the starting lineup is free agent Mike Adams alongside second-year pro Quinton Carter. And instead of Andre' Goodman playing opposite Champ Bailey at cornerback, it'll be Tracy Porter with fellow free agent Drayton Florence helping defend the spread offenses that are all the rage in the NFL these days.
Bailey said, "I miss the guys that were here, but the good thing is we replaced them with some really good players."
Manning likes seeing the newcomers across the line of scrimmage, too, suggesting they're going to do as much as he will to help the Broncos' young wide receivers get better.
