Veikune, Owens, Silva

David Veikune was released by the Denver Broncos yesterday.

Chad Owens talks to the Toronto Sun about a frustrating 2011 season.
It’s not that Owens has become a shell of the player that lit up the CFL a year ago. The 29-year-old leads the league with 976 combined return yards, nearly more than a length of field than Larry Taylor of the Calgary Stampeders, who has 884. Gone, however, are the returns for touchdowns. Owens had four in 2010 but none so far this season; when it comes to offence, Owens has not yet crossed the goal line either.
And from a few weeks ago, The Carroll County Times profiles Ravens safety Mana Silva.
With Ed Reed, Tom Zbikowski and Haruki Nakamura all missing some practice during the early part of training camp, Silva spent substantial time with the first-team defense, which he says has helped him learn the Ravens' defense at an accelerated rate.

"He's gotten an opportunity and has been doing pretty well," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Obviously things are moving really fast for him, as far as the mental part of the game, but he's been holding up OK."

He was more than OK during Sunday night's practice, when he broke a pass and had coverage that resulted in a sack during one sequence, which led to his defensive teammates chanting his name.
