The Facts: Mare completed a two-day visit with the Broncos Wednesday and came away impressed. The free-agent meeting wasn't enough to prevent him from getting on a plane to Seattle to visit the Seahawks, who have been in contact with him since it was apparent they'd lose Josh Brown, their own money kicker. The Saints, for whom he kicked in 2007, also are in the mix.
Diehards Line:The Broncos attempted to get Mare to sign on the dotted line during his stay but he declined -- at least for now. "I know the goal for them was for me not to leave here," he told the News. "But this is my first visit. My goal is not to leave here, either, but I'm going to give Seattle a shot. They've been really positive and interested and we'll see how it goes. ..." Mare, 34, is coming off a dislocation of his right hip making a tackle against the Falcons in December. But he's back to running sprints and kicking once again. He maintained he passed his Broncos physical. He's known for an exceptionally strong leg, leading the NFL in touchbacks on kickoffs in 2006.
