Adam Jones tears up talking about Bengals owner, appreciates support

CINCINNATI -- An emotional Adam Jones said his motivation is "through the roof" because of the support of Bengals owner Mike Brown.

Steve Atwater Back with the Broncos

Steve Atwater is rejoining the Broncos. The former safety and 11-year NFL veteran was hired by the team as a fan development manager and an insider for its website. Atwater, 50, played 10 years and started all 155 games in his career as a Bronco after the team selected him in the first round (No. 20) of the 1989 draft.

He played one year in New York before calling it a career. In 2000, Atwater signed a ceremonial one-day contract to retire a Bronco. His name was added as the 20th member of the Ring of Fame five years later.
