Dan Reilly kept it simple, during his opening statement Wednesday in a matching trial from Denver Broncos entities against ROFR Holdings regarding the right of first refusal to claim a potential ownership succession.
“Finally, we would ask you that the right of first refusal that Edgar Kaiser received from Pat Boleyn is no longer in effect because it was not intended or lived before the lives of Edgar Kaiser and Mr. Boleyn,” in Denver’s Second District Court. In his opening statement before Judge Shelley Gilman, Reilly, an attorney and lead attorney for the Feinmore firm, said.
Kaiser’s camp argues that they still have a right to refuse before putting the Broncos up for sale.
Reilly asked the court to favor the Broncos on two fronts: first, the ROFR that Kaiser received on June 1, 1984, whether held by it or transferred to RFOR Holdings, expired on January 11, 2012, upon his death. was done. Second, that any of Bolen’s obligations under the same 1984 agreement were terminated upon his death on June 13, 2019.
“We think the evidence will show that the parties intended that this provision would last only until the death of Mr. Kaiser and/or the death of Mr. Boleyn,” Reilly said.
Purcell sits outside. Nose tackle Mike Purcell (knee) was the only Broncos player to sit out of practice. Coach Vic Fangio said Purcell should be “fine”.
Right guard Graham Glasgow (illness), tight end Noah Fant (ankle), defensive end Shelby Harris (wrist) and receivers Cortland Sutton (hip) and Tim Patrick (hip) were doing limited work.
Glasgow missed the Jacksonville game after experiencing an irregular heartbeat during a win over the New York Giants in Week 1.
“It’s resolved, but it’s something we need to be aware of and be extra careful with,” Fangio said. “That’s fine, but we can’t ignore what happened.”
Saffron, Crockett signed. To take the roster spot vacated by outside linebacker Bradley Chubb (ankle) and inside linebacker Josie Jewel (pectoral), the Broncos signed inside linebacker Micah Saffron and drove back Damaria Crockett.
Saffron was in the Los Angeles Rams’ practice squad after starting nine games last year – he had a team-high 77 tackles at the time of the knee injury. In 2019, he was on track to play a major role until he tore his pectoral in a Presidents game against Dallas.
Saffron’s strength is as a run-stopper. He played 14 snaps for the Rams in the August 28 preseason finale against the Broncos.
“He has a little bit of advantage that he spent the last year with the Rams and (former Broncos assistant Brandon) Staley was there (as defensive coordinator) and ran our system, so it’s a quick carry-on in learning.” Should be over,” Fangio said.
Crockett had a game-day practice squad call-up in 1-2 weeks, but if the Broncos did it again, he would be exposed to a string of waivers.
Hall of Fame nominee. The Pro Soccer Hall of Fame unveiled its 122-player list of modern-era nominees for the Class of 2022.
Players with Broncos ties: outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware, cornerback Dre ‘Bley, defensive linemen Neil Smith and Michael Dean Perry, and receivers Rod Smith and Wes Welker. Also nominated is Boulder native Tony Bocelli, who was an offensive tackle for Jacksonville.
The list of 25 players will be made in November and 15 in January. A maximum of five players will be selected for the establishment.
footnote. Fangio, asked about the Broncos being the 11-point favorite on the Jets, talked about Jacksonville coach Urban Mayer. “I shook his hand before the game (Sunday) and after the game and my comment was, ‘Every week, it’s like playing Alabama in the NFL.’ That’s it. Everyone in this league is capable of beating everyone else.” … The Broncos announced a deal with the mattress firm to put patches on the practice jerseys, which meant that each player on the interview stage wore their own jersey.
