- Veteran NFL tight end Vernon Davis is headed from San Francisco to Denver, Broncos general manager John Elway said, a move that will give Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning an added target. "We've agreed to trade for two-time Pro Bowl TE Vernon Davis from SF. He'll be a valuable addition to our team w/his experience & leadership," Elway wrote on Twitter. The Broncos are hoping Davis will fill the void left by Julius Thomas, who left in the offseason. The Broncos are unbeaten at 7-0, but their first six wins depended on a strong defensive showing, with the Manning-led offense often lacking before a breakout 29-10 win over the Green Bay Packers.
