Renck of Denver 7 ABC:"I love the Denver Broncos. This team has been so special to my family, to the City of Denver and to the state of Colorado. My father's legacy is very important to me and my family. It is my desire to lead this team with the same passion my father did and help the Broncos become Super Bowl champions again. I have the ambition, experience and drive, and my mentor in running a winning NFL franchise is the best in the business 鈥攎y father."Despite her intentions, the Pat Bowlen trust countered that she is "not capable or qualified at this time."Pat Bowlen has owned the Broncos for 37 years, but after being diagnosed with聽Alzheimer's聽he resigned control of the day-to-day operations to Broncos CEO Joe Ellis in 2016.According to聽Woody Paige聽of the聽Gazette, Bowlen's "physical health is declining dramatically" and he has been hospitalized several times.There is no direct line of succession for the 74-year-old, but the three-person trust鈥攚hich includes Ellis,聽team counsel Rich Sliva and Denver attorney Mary Kelly鈥攈as the authority to make decisions for the team Authentic A.J. Green Jersey , per聽Nicki Jhabvala聽of the聽Denver Post. Each of Bowlen's seven children will receive an聽equal share in the franchise but聽the trust will determine which of the children, if any, will become the team's decision-maker.Patrick Dennis Bowlen III,聽John Michael Bowlen and Brittany Alexandra Bowlen are considered potential candidates to take over as owners to keep it in the family if聽Beth Bowlen Wallace is unable to land the role.In addition to having聽a law degree from the University of Denver, Bowlen Wallace has also worked as the director of special projects for the Broncos for three years.According to聽Forbes, the Broncos are worth $2.6 billion which ranks 11th among NFL teams. Lawrence Guy has tried to use every trial he's faced in his life as an opportunity to learn something about himself.

It helped the Patriots defensive lineman trudge through learning disabilities as a child and in college.

Later, he overcame the emptiness he felt while helping his wife through a miscarriage during her fifth month of pregnancy.

But as he begins his second training camp in New England, the eighth-year defensive lineman is feeling more grounded and less like an NFL nomad.

He proved to be one of the few consistent pieces on the Patriots defense last season and expectations will be higher as one of the most-tenured players on the defensive line.

Guy is embracing it as his next challenge and says the lessons he's learned off the football field have prepared him for whatever comes next for him on it.

"I'm still growing," Guy said. "Every year you play you're growing trying to be a better player. ... I'm not looking at my years in the league as 'Oh, I've made it.' I'm looking at how I'm going to get better."

Last season Guy highlighted the struggles he and his wife Authentic Calvin Ridley Jersey , Andrea, endured in 2016 by honoring the organization that helped him through the loss of their unborn child , Estelle, during the NFL's My Cleats, My Cause Initiative.

The pain will never fully subside, Guy said, but they did reach a milestone this past June when Andrea gave birth to a daughter, Adriana Paola.

Her arrival not only gave Guy an emotional pickup, he said it has grounded him as a football player.

"When she came, the outlook on life became different Avonte Maddox Color Rush Jersey ," Guy said. "Your perspective when you come on this field is different. You know you have someone else behind you. I'm playing for my last name, I'm playing for my teammates and I'm playing for my daughter."

Adriana is already walking and has run into her father's arms every day after practice.

"To have her here ... she may not quite understand it, but you can see the eyes open up when she sees me," Guy said. "That feeling is amazing."

The Patriots signed Guy to a four-year, incentive-laden free agent deal prior to last season. He proved to be worthy of investment, producing 58 combined tackles during the 2017 season 鈥?more than any other New England interior lineman. The team showed its appreciation for his efforts in 2017 and following their Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia added a $500,000 bonus to his 2018 salary.

It was a gesture the team didn't have to make.

Guy appeared in 54.91 percent of New England's snaps in 2017, just short of the 55 percent that would have triggered the bonus.

He will have to make the roster to see that money, with no guaranteed salary left in his deal after the $4.9 million he made last season. But Guy seems to be a lock on a unit that needs continuity after struggling down the stretch of 2017.

Run stopping is an area that Guy excels in. The hope is that 6-foot-2, 305-pound Danny Shelton Seahawks Dontae Johnson Jersey , an offseason trade acquisition from Cleveland, can supplement Guy's efforts in 2018.

Shelton said recently that it's been easy to develop a rapport with fellow linemen such as Guy, Malcolm Brown and defensive end Trey Flowers.

"We're all kind of at that point in our career where we know of players and we respect each other's game," Shelton said. "It's not hard to make friends when you know and you respect the guy's game."

The defense will have a new look to it with linebackers coach Brian Flores calling plays following former defensive coordinator Matt Patricia's departure.

Guy said he's ready to fill whatever role the Patriots ask of him.

"Right now, we're just trying to stack days," Guy said. "We're not looking who's this or who's that. We're trying to come together as a unit and move forward every single day. ... Every day I step on that field I have to get better at something."
