Lee Rasizer of RMN hints in his article yesterday that Mario Hagan may get a start at MLB this week against Atlanta. While nothing is for sure, this comes as a shock to me, since I vaguely remember the Broncos acquiring him two weeks or so ago. Jim Ryan, the Broncos linebackers coach has some good things to say about Haggan:
"He's only been here a couple weeks, but he's been terrific," Ryan said, without divulging the team's weekend plans. "He's a hard worker. He's in here extra, trying to pick everything up, which he needs to be because he doesn't know the defense as well as the other guys. And he's a physical presence. He looks like a big, physical linebacker. So I think he has a chance to help us."
An exerpt from Rasizer's article hints at what the next game might bring:
The situation became so fluid with middle linebacker Nate Webster's sprained knee last week that it wouldn't be surprising to see Mario Haggan, whom Denver acquired two weeks ago, at middle linebacker against Atlanta on Sunday.
I think Haggan has the size (he's listed at 6'3" and 252 pounds) to be a linebacker. I don't have any info about him as far as his speed. Someone else here may be able to find that out. :) On to the poll:
