    According to NFL.com we matched the offer and he still decided to leave to vie for more playing time.

    Thank you for all you've done for the Broncos, and the community in Denver. You'll be greatly missed you were great teammate and leader. Good luck in DC.

    He was a good depth guy here. Sounds like he's getting a chance to start in DC. Good luck, he's a good player.

    Darn, looks like the Broncos had the same offer on the table but he chose Washington

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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

    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.

    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.

    Bruton was a good player and we will miss him. Good luck in Washington.
