Bly impressive

by Frank Schwab

Travis Henry might have a better year and Daniel Graham might be the best player the Denver Broncos picked up this offseason, but the acquisition of Dre Bly might have been the team’s most important move.

Bly looked very good Tuesday, and had an impressive interception in the afternoon practice. If Bly can make plays like that, the entire defense will benefit. Without a cornerback of Bly’s caliber opposite Champ Bailey, teams would throw Bailey’s way even less – if possible.

Domonique Foxworth is a talented player, but with him playing the third cornerback position with Bly and Bailey, there aren’t many holes in the Broncos secondary. Bly, like Bailey, has a swagger about him that should rub off on the entire defense.
