Disappointing rookie year in Ayers' rearview

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Aside from one shining moment, pass rushing linebacker-defensive end Robert Ayers had a forgettable rookie campaign for the Denver Broncos.

A first-round pick out of Tennessee and the 18th overall selection by the Broncos a year ago, Ayers recovered a fumble and returned it a team rookie record 54 yards for a touchdown Nov. 9
against Pittsburgh.

But he heads into his second season still looking for his first career sack. He initially was credited with one Dec. 20 against Oakland but it was taken away by statisticians on further review.
