Updating a previous item, the Denver Broncos believe LB Nate Irving is a strong candidate to start at middle linebacker this year after the team waived Joe Mays, a starter in each of the previous 3 seasons.
Huddle Up: Irving is a 2011 3rd-round pick who's starred on special teams but has yet to make an NFL start. The Broncos, though, typically have taken the MLB off the field in nickel situations -- which they played more than 60 percent of the defensive snaps in 2012 -- great diminishing any IDP value the position might have in the Mile High City.
