Denver's director of pro personnel, Tom Heckert, was arrested on DUI charges last month. Jeff Legwold and Ryan Parker of the Denver Post have the story. This news comes one day after news broke that the team's director of player personnel, Matt Russell, was arrested on DUI charges in Summit County last weekend. Russell and Heckert face punishment from the legal system, and also the Broncos and the NFL in terms of suspensions and fines. A rehabilitation program is also likely to be mandated.
Of the arrests, Mike Kiszla of the Denver Post writes: There will be no self-righteous wagging of the finger by me at the NFL franchise whose every move affects the heart of Denver. But the sobering truth is: The Broncos must do something more than say they're sorry.
Broncos strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson talks about getting the team ready for the 2013 campaign. Stuart Zaas of the team's website has the story.

Cornerback Brandon Flowers told NFL Network's "NFL AM" crew on Wednesday that the Chiefs "have the pieces to be the best secondary in the NFL." Marc Sessler of NFL.com has the story.
