Broncos will upgrade stadium in offseason

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos are planning to spend $30 million to upgrade Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Most of the money will go toward a new high-definition video board in the south end zone, the team announced on its website Friday. Other video boards around the stadium also will be revamped.

Mac Freeman, the team's senior vice president of business development, said the improvements help the stadium "remain a state-of-the-art facility."
