  • And the Worst Off-Season in NFL History Continues

    With the "Un-Expected" non-signing of Knowshon Moreno (And without mention of Ayers, who hasn't signed either) the Denver Broncos have promised their fans that they really don't have any way of turning this season into a surprise.

    I am trying so hard to stay positive, I really am, but this makes it harder.

    This is clearly one of the most abysmal organizations in the sport now.
    I mean I can understand not signing a first round pick. But both Ayers and Moreno? The players we need most? It sucks to be a Broncos fan right now

    Edit: The good news is we have been very productive in signing 8 of 10 rookies before OTA's...
    The Bad News is none of those 8 players are named Robert Ayers or Knowshon Moreno.

            It is going to be hilarious if the Broncos surprise all of us and do well.

              As of Sunday night, only four of 32 first-round picks had reached agreements.
              Give it some time. Moreno will be fine if he misses the first 2 or 3 days. Interesting choice of #27 as his jersey number.

              Btw the young cornerback who most caught my eye last season? Probably Andre Goodman of the Miami Dolphins, who the Broncos signed in the offseason. Keep an eye on him.


              I was kind of saving this for something, but I guess I'll post this here:

              Everyone thinks the trade for Alphonso Smith is so terrible. I don't think it necessarily is, actually. Maybe even genius? They traded what is probably a Top 10, if not really a Top 5 (or 3?) pick in the 2010 Draft for a second round pick in Alphonso Smith.

              They acquired a 1st round talent (imo) and saved $30-50 million in doing it.

              Let's say for the sake of example that the Broncos have the 5th overall pick next year.
              2007 5th overall Levi Brown: 6 years, base value $37.47M, max value $61.95M, guaranteed $18.05M.
              2008 5th overall Glenn Dorsey: 5 years, base $33M, max $55.5M, guaranteed $22.5M.
              2009 5th overall Marc Sanchez: 5 years, base $44.5M, likely $50.5M, max $60M, guaranteed $28M.
              and then compare that to
              2009 37th overall Alphonso Smith: 4 years, $4.08M with $2.15M signing bonus.
              That money saved could go to a Brandon Marshall extension or signing a major impact free agent (like Vince Wilfork!) next summer. The key is spending that money saved though.

              Also acquiring Smith and Goodman might perhaps lead to trading Bailey next year, which means additional assets.
              Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.

                  geo.

                  welcome to the 'real world' of football economics... and what it takes to actually survive and grow.

                  first round draft picks, especially high draft picks, are ruinious... look at detroit, and how many years, how many picks they've picked, and wasted, and got killed financially over.

                      HA. I'm actually on that bandwagon. Hop on.
                      The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

                          Or demand to get traded back to the eagles. :)
