“There’s no hard feelings at all.”
“So said former Broncos running back and new Baltimore Raven Mike Anderson, who succinctly said that “business is business,” when asked about how he felt looking back at the end of his six-year stint in Denver.
“It is always tough to part (with players like Anderson and Trevor Pryce), and the salary cap has a lot to do with those things,” Head Coach Mike Shanahan said.
Yesterday, I wrote about Pryce, who was released along with Anderson and was introduced to Baltimore along with his fellow former Bronco at a press conference in March. But Pryce told The Denver Post that he didn’t want to talk about the upcoming return leading into Monday night’s game.
Anderson, however, did. Click here and then scroll down to “Mike Anderson Presser” and click again to see what he had to say to a gaggle of media gathered alongside Baltimore’s practice field.
A few snippets:
On going back to INVESCO Field at Mile High: “It is going to be strange stepping in there, thinking about it, to this day, I don’t think I’ve ever been in that stadium in the visiting locker room.”
On getting used to the Ravens: “There have been some changes, but for me as I look at it, change is good.”
On whether he’d like more carries than the nine he’s had in four games this year: “Of course. I’m a runner. But that’ll come in due time.”
