Chiefs | Undecided at DT

Fri, 29 Jul 2005 22:37:18 -0700

KCChiefs.com reports Kansas City Chiefs head coach Dick Vermeil said the team hasn't decided if DTs John Browning or Lional Dalton will start at defensive tackle this season. "He really hasn't lost his job," Vermeil said of Dalton. "It's just how we're starting out here right now. John Browning is our best defensive linemen and our best defensive tackle anyway. But we played him differently last year, rotating him between two positions as I explained this morning. And he can't play two at the same time. So we started him on the bench depending on defensive calls and situation, and then got him rolled through and he ended up playing more than the other guys. But right now we don't have a starting defensive tackles per se."

Broncos | Dalton Says He's Willing To Take Pay Cut

Fri, 22 Aug 2003 14:03:20 -0700

Updating previous reports, Lee Rasizer, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports Denver Broncos DT Lional Dalton insists he's willing to take a pay cut this year, and hopes Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan simply will release him if he can't finalize a trade soon. The Broncos announced last week they intend to trade Dalton since he wasn't going to start and was scheduled to make $1.6 million this season. Shanahan reportedly wants a fifth-round draft pick as compensation, and claims he has a trade in place if Dalton would agree to restructure his deal. "It has nothing to do with me," Dalton said Thursday, Aug. 21. "I'm willing to take a pay cut this year, but I'd like my contract intact for next year so if I play good this year I'll get what I'm supposed to get next year." He believes the problem is teams are gambling that the Broncos will release him outright, and thus he'll come much cheaper. Earlier Thursday, Shanahan said he still expects to work a trade.
