The Denver Broncos signed cornerback Dre' Bly to a five-year, $33 million contract Wednesday.

The deal includes $18 million in bonus money, $16 million guaranteed.

The signing should end any speculation Bly wouldn't report to the Broncos.

Neither Bly nor his agent, Kennard McGuire was available for comment.

Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan told the Denver Post that Bly initially wasn't happy when traded to Denver from the Detroit Lions, but he believes Bly will be happy with the Broncos.

Exactly. They gave Bly 16 million reasons to change his mind.

That a lot of cash to have invested in one position.

But it is money well used. I would much rather have Champ and Bly for their combined salary than pay $10Mil a year for a guy like Nate Clements. With the secondary locked down, and the decent success Denver has had against the run, I think Denver is going to do very well this year - and I am not a Denver fan. Also, I would rather lock up that much in the CB position (arguably the second most important on the team), than RB ala New Orleans...but I'm no GM, just talking logistics. They really need a pass rush, so enter a rookie and potential FA and I think Denver has had a very good offseason.
