BRONCOS GET RINGS: Running back Terrell Davis said he "felt like a kid at Christmas." Wide receiver Rod Smith said "everybody just kind of fell out of their chairs." Offensive guard Mark Schlereth said "there were a lot of mouths dropping in that room."
Denver Broncos players and coaches received their diamond-laden Super Bowl XXXII championship rings on Friday in a 30-minute private ceremony at Bronco headquarters, the one that they all said they wanted to win for quarterback John Elway.The rings contained the player's or coach's name, 16 large diamonds signifying the Broncos' 16-4 record, as well as replicas of the Lombardi Trophy and Qualcomm Stadium, site of the Super Bowl. In the center of the ring is the Broncos' horse logo, with rare Australian orange diamonds as the horse's mane.
CHIEFS SIGN RISON: Andre Rison, who came to town with a troublemaker's reputation but led his team in receiving and was voted its MVP, has signed a four-year extension that probably keeps him in Kansas City for the rest of his career.
RAIDERS CUT MCDANIEL: The Oakland Raiders have released five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Terry McDaniel.
