The Broncos have reportedly agreed to a two-year, $2.5 million contract with free agent LaMont Jordan.

Not surprising. Basically a replacement for Pittman, but a little younger and familiar with McDaniels' system.

The backfield is getting pretty full - unless they dump someone, I don't see RB being a priority in the draft.

Hillis
Torain
Buckhalter
Young
Jordan

I think Young is on the bubble of that group.

Hopefully everybody will stop the insanity of us picking a RB in the first two rounds.

IMO the talent of the team is upgraded over last year. We are still weak at LB and D-line but despite the Cutler and Marshall debacles this has been a good FA period.

That's a pretty decent backfield. No superstars, but enough to get attention off of Cutler, Marshall and Royal. I think this has been a great FA period, drama aside. If by some magic we have another good draft (this one with a defensive focus), I see this defense jumping at least 10 spots. Granted that still puts them as at middle of the pack, but it is a good start.

Free agent DL Kenny Peterson "has decided to remain with the Broncos," according to the Sacramento Bee.
The 49ers had given Peterson a look, but it appears he's set to be re-signed. Peterson played for the sixth-year veteran's minimum last season.

I think he'll compete for a DE spot.

He was called the Revolving Door when he was playing for the Broncos. The guy is terrible, I have no idea how he is still in the league.

I read that the Broncos were trying to trade Tony Scheffler.
What do you think they'd be expecting in return?

A 4th would be reasonable. He's a great pass catcher, mediocre run blocker and poor at pass protect (which didn't matter that much in Denver as he was always in a receiving pattern on any obvious passing down).

The real knock is that he can't stay healthy - count on him missing 2-3 games minimum.

I think the jury is definitely out on that one. My feeling is that they are very much competing against each other for the weakside OLB spot.

IIRC, Dumervil tested like crap as a LB when he entered the draft, so he's going to be really challenged to be anything other that an passrusher. However, at least he's flashed some ability at the pro level.

Moss I think has better potential in a 3-4, in fact his best draft position was probably OLB, but so far he hasn't shown a lot on the field. Part of that was the inability to pack on enough weight to be a credible starting DE.

What's up with D. Robertson? I didn't see many of your games this year but he was a solid NT in New York in their 3-4. He couldn't have been that bad in Denver this past season. Was he??

Not only that, he was due some ridiculous amount of bonus money if he returned to Denver this year.

He was solid his first year with Mangini's 3-4 as the nose. His biggest problem was his size (or lack there of). I just didn't think he was that bad of a player especially if he was teamed in a decent 4-3 front. I guess Thomas is a small DT as well though. Just surprised he's still a FA is he's still got skills.

Apparently the team is bringing in Beanie Wells for another workout:

http://myespn.go.com/blogs/afcwest

My guess is that they aren't certain he's a guy they like at 12, but he's close enough to warrant a second look. If it is a smokescreen, it's one they're putting a lot of effort into considering the number of other backs that have come in for workouts.

Our head moderator, the eternal optimist. ;)

I'm not wild about Wells as a prospect either... but the team is in a tough spot at 12 when so many picking ahead of us are also looking for DL / pass rush help.

I think they are also considering the possibility of someone wanting to trade ahead of Washington to grab one of the big OT's should one slide on draft day. We obviously won't take an OT and the Redskins definitely will, which creates a good opportunity.

I have a bad feeling about draft day...I hate being angry on draft day. Especially after I was so happy last draft. But so angry the draft before that. It's a horrible pattern.

Default Cutler scapegoated?

I think Cutler is being scapegoated by certainly McDaniel & maybe Pat Bowlen in his scathing letter last wk. Bowlen had a reputation as a hands-off owner but lately has become too hands-on with his team, & it shows.

He didn't have any anti-Broncos sentiments until McDaniel (who looks like he's maybe 18 yrs old) tried to pull his weird 3-way trade to acquire Cassel.... yeah right, like KC was going to give him up after all they went through to get him. And 3-way trades have along history of going kerflooey before they are done deals, too many volatile team agendas to make them happen.

I think Cutler is smart enough to know he's getting the shaft there, he was obviously being dissed by McDaniel. It was so risky -- I still don't know wtf McDaniel was thinking. Yeah Chicago way, way overpaid for Cutler, but what kind of msg. did it send to the other young players in the Denver locker room? It looks like a new HC in his 1st HC job was trying to make a big splash without a lot of concern for the risk-rewards there, & maybe they realize now their new HC is too reckless

How can he be "scapegoated" when he's wanted to leave ever since Shanahan and Bates got canned? You can't ask for a trade multiple times, then pretend you're surprised when it happens.

WTF are you talking about? The proposed 3-way had nothing to do with KC.

Quote:

He wasn't being dissed. Everyone was so quick to jump on McD, then as the details came out opinion turned against Cutler. The fact that the team was trying to work things out and Cutler didn't have any interest in being part of it speaks volumes.

Cutler wanted this and he got it. We got a journeyman QB and draft picks. We'll see how it all works out.

The way I perceived it was absolutely nothing heard from Cutler until trade talks surfaced, which I 1st heard on ESPN who may have well been very late, as usual, reporting the story.

I also heard the 3-way trade was McD trying to finagle Cassel, didn't make sense at all but no one had the straight scoop on it except PFW & I read that late too.

And I think Bowlen got his info on Cutler filtered thru McD, who seemed biased in this b/c he was. I'm not a Broncos fan by any stretch, I'm sure many others have a better handle on the story than I did, but to even the most casual observer in the absence of timely info it looked like a new HC was trying to make a big splash as the only motivation for morphing thier best player into trade bait.

BTW I think the Chicago Bears & Jerry Angelo way, way overpaid for Cutler. On paper it looks like the biggest fleecing of a superstar in a trade since the Vikes gave up 16 players & picks for Herschel Walker about 17 yrs ago. Like you say we'll have to see how it turns out, Denver could still dick this up by failing to get the appropriate defensive players they desperately need -- that defense hasn't been able to stop the run since Al Wilson left. And their multi-million $ secondary with Champ Bailey & Bly to stop the Patriots, Bolts, whoever;s air attacks, how did that work out for them?

Point is they need about 4-6 new defensive studs or it's another long season there, they have a long way just to get back to mediocrity. I watched them get pummeled by the Raiders & other inferior teams last yr & wondered how Shanahan held onto his job, turned out he didn't.

Broncos could end up getting the better end of the deal. Fill the holes on defense & upgrade your run game. You guys already have some of the best targets in the league, all you really need is a good game manager and you'll be okay, imo.

1.) Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois
1.) Ray Maualuga, ILB, USC
2.) Ron Brace, NT, Boston College
3.) Shonn Greene, RB, Iowa
3.) Lawrence Sidbury, DE/OLB, Richmond
4.) David Bruton, FS, Notre Dame

Scary, scary, defense.
