Four players met with the media a day before the first practices of training camp — Brandon Lloyd, Mario Haggan, Elvis Dumervil and Brian Dawkins.
We’ll have much more from what all four of them had to say, including the full Dumervil interview courtesy of Broncos TV, later this afternoon.
In the mean time, here are a couple quick nuggets from the interviews.
Haggan said he hated to see Jabar Gaffney heading to Washington because of what he did for the team over the past two seasons, but understood the move.
“It was a situation where we have a lot of good receivers,” he said. “We had a lot of depth — it was our strength — and it was a situation where we needed some defensive linemen. We didn’t go there in the draft, obviously, and we’re probably looking at free agency, in my opinion. It’s good to have a guy (Jeremy Jarmon) come in alongside me and hunker down and let these linebackers run.”
Also, Dumervil said he spent much of his offseason taking online classes through the University of Louisville to get his degree.
“I’m two classes away,” the defensive end smiled, noting he finished his classes this offseason with a 3.7 GPA. “Two classes left and I’m done.”
