    Tebow Fans Protest Outside Broncos HQ
    by DC Insider Rick Bennett

    Elway forced to flee building.

    Though there has yet to be confirmation to the earlier rumors that the Broncos met with free agent QB Peyton Manning, the psychotic following that current Broncos QB Tim Tebow has in Denver decided to protest the potential move.

    Thousands of fans stormed the headquarters of the Denver Broncos once the news broke out, some driving in from as far as several states away to join the fracas.

    A team spokesman tried to dissuade the rumors, but was pelted with rocks, bottles and shoes forcing him to flee into the building.

    A police escort was called to help several key members of the Broncos organization, including team president John Elway and owner Pat Bowlen, flee the building to safety.

    Fearing a violent riot, police were forced to use tear gas to break up the mob that had formed.

    Extra police have been stationed around the building to prevent any more angry mobs from forming for the time being.

      Packers desperate to resign Wells

      With the news of Packers centre Scott Wells speaking to the Jacksonville Jaguars the Packers GM Super Packer has come and and said he is desperate to resign Wells. "Scott Wells is an integral part of this organisation and we will do whatever we can to bring him back to Green Bay. Scott has been a top performer for us for many years and we do not want to lose him".

      Super Packer has reportedly offered Wells an elite contract offer which he hoped would of warned teams away from looking at the 31 year old centre, however with this recent news he felt he needed to come out and express his opinion on the matter.

        Tulloch, Bills have Mutual Interest
        by DC Insider Rick Bennett

        The LB likes what the Bills are selling almost as much as Tebowing.

        Earlier in the day, the Bills visited with former Lions DE Cliff Avril and now, they've talked to former Lions LB Stephen Tulloch.

        Tulloch apparently liked the plans the Bills had for him, and also said they had presented the best financial package to him thus far.

        The LB corps in Buffalo is extremely thin and Tulloch would instantly become the best player in it. Playing behind quality defensive tackles Marcel Dareus and Kyle Williams was also a big incentive for him.

        Tulloch will wait to see what other opportunities present themselves but Buffalo seems to be high on his list.

            Giants have interest in Peyton?

            When asked about the potential of uniting the 2 brothers, GM Scottyboy said

            "I think it'd be funny."

            More to come on this story

            In additional news, Jeremy Zuttah hates GM Scottyboy.

              Lions Cut Cherilus
              by DC Insider Rick Bennett

              The Lions have announced the release of former first round pick, OT Gosder Cherilus.

              Cherilus was benched several times during the 2011 season and quickly fell out of favor with the coaching staff.

              The move saves the Lions $2.5 million.

                Rams Cut Four, Including First Rounder Smith
                by DC Insider Rick Bennett

                The St. Louis Rams announced today that they've released 4 players. They are DT Justin Bannan, C Jason Brown, DE James Hall and OT Jason Smith.

                Smith is the most notable player on the list as a former first round pick.

                These moves save the team around $20 million.

                  Colston Visits 49ers
                  by DC Insider Rick Bennett

                  Coming to the Bay area in 2012?

                  Former Saints WR Marques Colston has quietly made rounds as a free agent today, staying mostly low key.

                  His most intriguing visit was to the San Francisco 49ers who need additional playmakers on offense.

                    Super Mario Visits Browns
                    by DC Insider Rick Bennett

                    His tour stops in Cleveland to visit the Browns.

                    Mario Williams has, unsurprisingly, been a busy man thus far in free agency. It may be easier to list the teams NOT interested in the former first overall pick.

                    The Browns made their best pitch to the free agent pass rusher today as he visited the team HQ and met with team president Mike Holmgren.

                    The Browns have plenty of cap space but can they wow Williams enough with the team they're building? Getting a player like Super Mario would certainly be a major boost to the franchise which has struggled since reentering the league in 1999.


                    • Saints Host Landry
                      by DC Insider Rick Bennett

                      Will he return to play football in Louisiana?

                      There hasn't been a whole lot of interest former Redskins safety LaRon Landry thus far in free agency, but he did make one notable visit to the Saints.

                      An LSU alum, Landry is familiar with the state and would fill a big need after the Saints cut Roman Harper to save some money.

                      There is apparently mutual interest, but Landry will continue to see what other offers come in.


                      • Blackburn Makes the Rounds
                        by DC Insider Rick Bennett

                        Superbowl champion looking for a long term deal.

                        Chase Blackburn's story is a good one. He was out of football until re-joining the Giants mid-season. He immediately became their MLB and made the on-field adjustments for the team.

                        In the Superbowl, he intercepted a pass helping the Giants to their victory over the Patriots.

                        And now, much like Mario Manningham, the Superbowl victory has propelled his free agent stock and he's been making the rounds with several teams.

                        He's visited with the Cowboys where he would join Sean Lee as the ILBs of the future for that defense. He also visited the Browns in his home state of Ohio where he would potentially play next to the franchise tagged D'Qwell Jackson.

                        He has another visit lined up with the Raiders where new GM Reggie McKenzie's good character policy already has Rolando McClain in the dog house. Blackburn would provide a sharp mind in the middle of the defense.

                        The Giants have also made a play to sign him long term, but Blackburn is doing his homework and checking all of his options before deciding.


                        • Bengals Looking at the O-Line
                          by DC Insider Rick Bennett

                          Carl Nicks finally getting some love.

                          The Bengals were one of the most surprising teams of 2011, with a quality defense ready to break out and some young talent in key positions on offense.

                          In an effort to continue building, the team is looking to spend some of their tremendous cap space on the o-line.

                          Former Saint Carl Nicks, widely considered the best o-lineman available in this free agent class, was one of several players seen at the team's facility today. Evan Mathis of the Eagles and Ben Grubbs of the Ravens were also seen at the facility.

                          It appears that protecting Andy Dalton and opening better holes in the run game are priorities for this year's Bengals team.


                          • Carlson Quietly Popular
                            by DC Insider Rick Bennett

                            Most well-rounded TE available?

                            John Carlson missed the entire 2011 season due to injury, but that hasn't hurt his popularity amongst teams looking for a TE in 2012.

                            Carlson has received no fewer than 6 offers from teams so far in the free agency period. He has been making the rounds today visiting each team and hearing what they have to offer.

                            Most recently, Carlson visited the Titans who are looking for a well-rounded TE to pair with the more pass-catching oriented Jared Cook.

                            So far, no team has distinguished itself with a big offer to Carlson. If this trend continues, Carlson will be picking the team that is the best fit rather than go for the money.


                            • Meachem Visits Ravens
                              by DC Insider Rick Bennett

                              Offensive addition in store?

                              The Ravens have gotten active in free agency and started off by making their pitch to WR Robert Meachem.

                              While Marques Colston is widely considered the better of New Orleans' two free agent WRs, Meachem brings plenty to the table himself as a deep threat.

                              The Ravens feel his vertical ability will do well in their offense with Flacco's arm strength.


                              • Dolphins Cut Two
                                by DC Insider Rick Bennett

                                The Dolphins have announced two cuts to clear up some additional cap space. The players are DT Tony McDaniel and LB Jason Trusnik.

                                Combined, they save Miami $4 million.

                                *Update - The team has also released OT Ryan Cook, saving another $1 million.
