ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Denver Broncos coach John Fox gathered his players at midfield last month just before they dispersed for summer vacation and gave them his usual admonition about staying out of trouble.
By all accounts, they have heeded that advice not to embarrass themselves or the organization. But Executive Vice President John Elway's top two assistants haven't.
One day before Fox delivered his message, the Broncos brass had learned that Tom Heckert, the former Cleveland Browns general manager, had been charged with drunken driving in nearby Parker just a month after being hired as Denver's director of pro personnel.
The Broncos kept Heckert's June 11 arrest quiet until The Associated Press reported it Tuesday, a day after Broncos director of player personnel Matt Russell apologized for his arrest over the weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence.
