Vickerson beefed up to ‘let the linebackers eat’

Kevin Vickerson took a pay cut and added weight to his big frame, two things the Denver Broncos asked of their defensive lineman during the offseason, and Vickerson obliged: The strategy has paid dividends, too.
Broncos want to bid on 2018, ’19 or ’20 Super Bowl

DENVER – Denver submitted an application to bid for the Super Bowl.

The Denver Post reported the Broncos and Visit Denver submitted an application in late August to the NFL’s Super Bowl Advisory Committee to bid to host the Super Bowl in 2018, 2019 or 2020. Visit Denver chief executive officer and President Richard Scharf called it a very preliminary step.

The NFL is expected to select next year which cities are eligible to submit an official bid.

Mayor Michael Hancock spoke about Denver’s application Wednesday in a meeting with The Denver Post editorial board.

LB Von Miller was named AFC Defensive Player of the Month, the first Bronco to receive that honor since CB Champ Bailey in October 2006. ... Bailey will get yet another look at Bucs WR Vincent Jackson this week, a former Charger and Northern Colorado alumnus. “I remember at the Pro Bowl last year, I told him to get out of our division. And he did, thank God. But here we go again,” Bailey said. ... DE Robert Ayers missed practice again to be with his family after the sudden death of his dad last weekend. The funeral is Saturday, and coach John Fox said he wasn’t sure if Ayers would be back in time for Sunday’s game. ... Fox on the city of Denver’s preliminary efforts to land a Super Bowl in 2018, ’19 or ’20: “We’ve got, if not the nicest, one of the nicest stadiums in the league. Denver’s a great town. It’s got great fans. There’d be great enthusiasm, I know, if we were fortunate to get it.” ... Jack Del Rio’s son, Luke, is a quarterback for Valor Christian High School, which is playing for the state championship Saturday. The defensive coordinator said he certainly talks football with his son, who is being recruited by Oklahoma State and Oregon State, but “from my standpoint, as a dad, I’m more concerned with the character he shows, the way he competes every play – things like that are more important to me than what the end result is.”
