    Good for him to get a chance to start. Loved him on ST and having that proven guy off the bench when our Safeties have been hurt. WIsh we could have had him, but it comes down to money - we can't commit that with the CJ contract, Clady's holdout and the fact we still need an OL and QB. All the best Brut.

    DB -

    Thanks for your toughness! Will always remember you staying in the game vs. Pittsburgh after the leg fracture. Favorite play was the tip and pick on Stafford - huge play!

    Wish you were still with the Broncos and wish you success in Washington. Will swing by FedEx Field to see you show 'em what you are made of.

    Unlike other free agents we lost, I have no problem with Bruton leaving. He has been a soldier and all he ever wanted was to start and provide for his family.

    I hope he comes back when his playing days are over.

    I can understand since he was a backup in Denver for 7 seasons, but Ward and Stewart have dealt with a lot of injuries. I am sure Bruton would play a big role for our defense. While Ward and Stewart made around 60 tackles each, Bruton made 49 tackles + a lot of plays in coverage - and Bruton himself missed 3 regular-season games + playoffs because of injury. He played so much last season he was looking like Bradley Roby of our safeties. If we matched the offer, then we were willing to pay him more than D. Stewart who is the starter. That's a sign of respect and a recognition of his value on special teams. I wish he had stayed.

    It was Bruton's toughness against the Steelers that made us a championship team. Played on a broken leg. Took a nasty spear to his head (dirtiest hit I've ever seen) and got right back up. The team changed after that performance.

    Bruton gave us a lot of good years of ST play and backup safety.

    I understands he wants to play more and wish him all the best in Wash

    Cant really blame him if he wants to start, was never gonna happen with Stewart/Ward on the team.

    Don't the Skins train in Virginia and play in Maryland? I'm not sure he'll actually ever even be in DC.

    that is too bad but time to move on then. he wants to play, can't blame him. it is too bad, unique in the sense could have continued to be a captain and play his entire career here. possible ROFer. possible.

    He deserves a chance to start. He just wasn't going to get the chance here - barring injury. I get why he'd move on. Good luck, sir.
