Broncos had busy offseason despite lockout

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Even with the NFL on hiatus, several teams made plenty of noise in the offseason. Few were as loud as the Denver Broncos.

Hall of Famer John Elway returned to restore respectability to a franchise tarnished by scandal and his former tight end, Shannon Sharpe, was elected for enshrinement.

An enormously popular but largely unproven 23-year-old quarterback penned his autobiography. Last year's top draft pick suffered a serious injury working out. Another was stabbed by his girlfriend.

The Broncos' busy offseason began with a front office shake-up that brought back Elway, who empowered general manager Brian Xanders and hired coach John Fox, who will finally get to see his players in action when camp opens Thursday.
