  • OT-Pears, Harris, and Kuper...Somebody tell Cutler to up his insurance
    DT-Thomas, McKinley and who? I still think we will send a late second day pick to the Jets for Robertson. If so DT in day one is no longer required.
    WR-Marshall's arm was almost cut off and I doubt he will be 100% anytime this season if ever. Stokley is old and slot material and while I like the Colbert signing there is a lot of uncertainty.
    S-Unfortunately this class sucks but we got some decent FA pickups to hold things over.
    LB-WLB is fine with DJ. SLB and MLB are potentially fine and if all else fails we resort to last years group (yuck). This draft has some good middle round depth at LB and I think we should take one.
    OG/C-Some risk with Hamilton and Nalen is old. Again some good middle round depth in this area and we should select at least one.

      • I think with the Casey Wiegmann signing, and the drafting of Lichtensteiger that Nalen's injury is more serious then it seems. As sad as this is to say, I can see Wiegmann being the starting center this year, not sure if Nalen will be ready to go

          Broncos | Team may be interested in Alexander

          John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports the Denver Broncos may be interested in free-agent RB Shaun Alexander (Seahawks).

          • Broncos Fans,

            Is there any chance Glenn Martinez will be cut. DEN has a lot of depth at WR right now with Marshall/Colbeart/Stokley/DJax/Royal/Parker/Martinez. Royal could possibly take over Martinez's special teams spot as well as his WR spot. Do you guys think Glenn will be the odd man out?

            I would like to see him on the Colts, not that it will happen, but I would like to see it if he is cut.

              I would be very surprised if Martinez made Denver 53 man roster this year

              • Rod Smith is such a class act. I, for one, would be very happy if the Broncos signed him on as a coach once he officially retires.

                  • Been reading some good things about Royal. What kind of expectations do you guys have?

                    • I'm trying to find some information on why the Broncos cut Hixon last year. Training camp hype put aside, this kid has been lights out on special teams and now seems to be tapping into the high ceiling potential many raved about when he was drafted. Any info would be appreciated.

                        That's interesting. He has been lights out every time he has touched the ball as a returner. I read last year there were some major psychological impacts going on after the Everett ordeal. Still though, he had scouts drooling if I remember correctly while he was at Akron and was seen as a 3-4 year project. I'm just wondering if it was a horrific move by your front office or if he was having some unknown off the field trouble. Again I hate to judge a player on preseason, but he has done everything a big time WR needs to do over the past month. Route running, hands, speed....he is really surging into a very good WR.

                        • A few things about Hixon:

                          - IIRC, the Broncos wanted to resign him to the practice squad, but the Giants picked him up.

                          - To some degree he was a scapegoat for the all-around awful special teams play. I think the team felt pressed to "shake things up", even though there really wasn't a better option available.

                          - He may have tested the patience of Shanahan a little too much with the long recovery from his injury, then the inability to produce on the field after looking good in training camp.

                            Royal was a great pick. Looking at the rest of our WR's, I can easily see him being our #2 guy in the near future (if he's not already).

                            • Hixon looked terrible for us, and I'm suprised he is doing so well. Talk about a quick turnaround with a different team.

                              • Maybe Hixon looked bad because our ST's are awful?

                                Get on a team that can actually block and form a wedge, line, etc and he can light it up.
