McDaniels digs into past with Law deal

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

Josh McDaniels has often said he has modeled his head-coaching career from the New England Patriots way.

Friday, he gave another example of how he lives life the Patriot Way.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting veteran cornerback Ty Law will sign a contract with the Denver Broncos. Law was with McDaniels in New England. McDaniels coached the defensive backs, and Law, in his early years in New England.

New England coach Bill Belichick always loved bring in veteran players and McDaniels is gearing up for the second half of the season by bringing in the savvy Law.

It remains to be seen how much Law can help. He hasn’t played all season and he is 35. But Law always takes good care of himself and he could help down the stretch.

Expect Law to play in nickel-and-dime defensive packages. With Law, Denver has an awesome leadership in the secondary to go along with cornerback Champ Bailey and safety Brian Dawkins.
