Broncos cut FS Renaldo Hill...I'd rather pass...he's pretty decent, nothing special. Pretty much on par with what else is available. But he does have links to Ryan. He had his best year under him in Oakland.

Rahim Moore pegged to start now for Denver I suppose. :(

Dan Bailey making everything in practice so far. 15-15. Nice. Buehler has been erratic.

JJ says we may keep two kickers again, though. Not feeling that too much. Given the fact that the ball has been moved up on kickoffs. We'll have to see how Bailey does here, he wasnt asked to do it in college.

Found a good Huff video of this past year. I'm really confused as to why we're not after him.

Bailey is excellent inside 40 yards. Outside of that forget about it he has zero distance. I imagine since he can't hit a 50 yard FG to save his life that kickoffs are a tad out of the question unless you want them landing at the 10.

No one seems interested in Huff right now. He sucked under Ryan, and was considered a bad/lazy player and teammate. Not that surprising that we dont want him. If Ryan doesnt like him, he doesnt like him.

Ryan is obviously going to have tons of power in who we bring in on the defensive end. And the fact that it's been reported that we have no interest in Huff, should tell you a little something in regard to Ryan/Huff's relationship. Last I heard, no one had even contacted Huff yet.

Cullen Jenkins - 5 years, $25M

That's not true. Bailey can hit from 50 for sure and he has. His leg power does extend that far. Just dont expect us to be attempting any like 54 yarders out there. His leg strength is being underrated. He can certainly win the job, and you can bet of the 15 he's attempted in practice, at least one would have extended passed 50 yards. He has the leg for that.

I'd rather have an accurate kicker who is pretty damn solid from within 50, than Buehler who is more athlete with a booming leg, than an NFL quality kicker. His technique is terrible, he's always going to torque them.

edit...now you have me looking it up. lol. 3/4 from 50 this year. I knew I saw him hit a few from 50+ this year.

There has to be a reason why Huff hasn't been gobbled up yet.

I'd take Huff if the price was right and Ryan wanted him. I initially assumed he'd be one of our top targets. But this has been pretty telling, imo. Sounds like teams are hesitant to pony up the money for Huff, who has been pretty damn inconsistent and at times downright bad, until just recently. And of course, the fact that he has been labled as "lazy" and a bad teammate doesnt help either.

To be fair, Spears is probably just as good of a player as Jenkins, or only slightly worse, but far less injury-prone than Jenkins.

Yeah, that's a good way to build team chemistry.

You should want Rob to have the guys he's most comfortable with and has faith in, to run his system, and run it correctly.

No one wants Michael Huff right now, not just us. His interest has been non-existent league wide to this point.

Marion Barber is now a Bear. Jerry Angelo is obviously a Cowboys fan.

edit...In addition to saying "we have a lot of bait in the water", as was previously posted...Jerry said not to expect an O-Lineman signing. WTF? Now that would make me mad. He says not to expect it, because he wants his younger players to have a chance to shine. hmmm. Hopefully, he means we're just not going to sign a T. Because there are tons of RG upgrades available, for a range of prices. Hell, Nick Cole is better than anything we have and should come dirt cheap. dammit. I couldnt imagine we turn to Arkin as early as this year. And Holland certainly isnt one of our "young guys". And Houck hasnt exactly been raving about him in interviews thus far, either.

Jerry, go sign a RG! please.

As weird as this sounds........and maybe i'm drinking the kool aid....but I imagine a scenario where the Cowboys come out like gangbusters. Real humble, with chips on their shoulder (romo, t.new, jenkins, spencer)..They've been DOGGED in the media(deservingly), I think they put up and shut up..and just play great ball. Bunch of high character guys, no clowns(roy & TO).

I'm giddy!

You should want Rob to have the guys he's most comfortable with and has faith in, to run his system, and run it correctly.

No one wants Michael Huff right now, not just us. His interest has been non-existent league wide to this point.
Winning builds team chemistry. Your post is full of assumption. Huff has made huge improvements since the last time Rob coached him. The issue with Huff right now is supposedly he's asking for a lot.

If you're changing things schematically with a new coordinator. You should trust his judgement. He has a specific system...he knows who's right for it, and who isnt. So I would certainly value his opinion on the matter. Huff's ability may have nothing to with it, either. Perhaps they dont even have a good relationship. I dont know.

My knowledge of Dallas' non interest in Huff, starts and ends with the "experts" or insiders who have said just that. And it doesnt sound like money has anything to do with it. But if it does...I wouldnt blame them, if he was seeking Weddle money. If I had my way, I would have tried to sign Huff and Elam, like I posted before FA started. But that's only if Huff was reasonably priced. I'd certainly agree that he has the most upside left of any of the remaining safeties. That doesnt mean his short lived success would continue in Dallas, however. But anyway, if the reason for our non interest was the fact that Ryan just doesnt want him. So be it.

I haven't heard anything from Ryan or the Cowboys saying they don't like Huff. Only that there is a lot of "bait" out there on several safeties. Huff may be included. I don't that. I don't know what sources you're going off of either though. Seems you just harp on how the Cowboys don't like Huff and they are bonkers for Elam yet neither have signed with us or anyone else yet.

As for schematics and stuff... yeah, that's why we just rushed to sign Ball. He totally fits that. Woo hoo! :/

Don't get me wrong... I totally agree with you... Cowboys management obviously does not. lol.

You have any links MOTH? I just haven't heard that either, I've only read someplace we weren't on the same page with his asking price on his deal. Nothing about him as a player, or not being a fit. He's a perfect fit, and I'll more then likely continue to feel that way unless I read otherwise.


Elam would just be alot cheaper and he's familiar with what were doing on defense.

Just read what's out there. Dallas contacted Elam as soon as FA started, his addition just makes too much sense not too happen. Especially with this "non urgency" we've seen to sign a safety. He knows the system. The longer we wait, the more likely Elam will be an addition. He's one guy that doesnt need to be schooled on the ins and outs of Ryan's defense. Luckily, that's actually an advantage for us.

As for Huff...a day after FA started, articles/tidbits were popping up that Dallas had no interest in Huff what so ever. And considering their apparent willingness to pursue pricier FAs, it just comes off as odd that they wouldnt even consider adding Huff. Obviously you wont hear anything from Ryan's mouth saying he doesnt want the guy...but everyone else is saying we're not interested via rotoworld updates, which come from a variety of outside sources.

All the info I've read is readily available to everyone else as well. lol. If you follow the info available, it's easy to come to the conclusion that Dallas is still in contact with Elam and they havent shown any interest in Huff. And somewhere the media received a lead that they arent interested in him at all. I can only guy by what's out there. And that's what they're saying.
