The Denver Broncos lost two key players from last season - running back Knowshon Moreno and linebacker Shaun Phillips.

Moreno agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins, whose running game ranked 26th in the NFL last season.

Moreno, a five-year veteran, had his best season in 2013, when he rushed for 1,038 yards, caught 60 passes, and scored 13 touchdowns.

The Tennessee Titans agreed to a multiyear deal with Phillips.

The 10-year veteran ranks ninth with 791/2 sacks over the last decade in the NFL. He played all 16 games for Denver last season with 10 sacks, 36 tackles, an interception, and two forced fumbles.

Details of Irsay arrest

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay had $29,000 in cash and bottles of prescription drugs in his vehicle when he was arrested March 16 on suspicion of intoxicated driving and other charges, according to the arrest report.

The cash was in Irsay's wallet, metal briefcase, and two laundry bags, the police report states.

Rice indicted

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was indicted on a charge he assaulted his fiancee during an argument in an elevator at an Atlantic City casino last month.

The former Rutgers star had been charged with simple assault after police said he knocked out Janay Palmer on Feb. 15 at the Revel. But a grand jury Thursday indicted him on a more serious count of aggravated assault, which carries a three-to-five-year sentence.
