Other team's FAs I hope we get.
Derek Cox CB Jax 26 6-1 195
I think with Del Rio and Undlin we got a shot at him coming.
Kyle Vanden Bosch DE Detroit 6-4 278
He went to high school at West Lyon High School of rural Larchwood, Iowa, which is not far from where I live.
Sorry Rodney, I just don't buy DJ as our solve all MLB. Heck, I am almost more sure DJ will leave than I am that Mays will. Most on MHR feel both should go, so that's what I'm going to accomplish in this trade. We trade DJ and Mays to Cleveland for D'Qwell Jackson and a 6th round pick.
Jackson's $3.6 million base salary for 2013 became fully guaranteed when he was kept on the roster as of Thursday, but he has struggled in the 3-4 before. (from rotoworld)
-What I hope for as of today.
-Many on MHR will say we should draft best available DT just as they have been howling for the past several years. I can't say I disagree with that. Especially since we have the smartest Bronco fans here at MHR
So my choice (this time)at #28 Jesse Williams DT Alabama 6-3 320
What? He isn't going to make it to our pick? We'll see. If he is there I want him. Will he be a day one starter? Many have said this is a 1st round requirement. He could be. Bannon has said he wants to stay for another year. Unrein and Siliga have come on lately. We have Garland in the wings. Jesse Williams is still learning. He grew up playing rugby and basketball in Brisbane, Australia, only took up football at the age of 15. I will leave a few things for when his MHR Short Board bio comes out. I do want to throw this in though, he is known as "Tha Monstar".
#58 Eric Reid FS LSU 6-2 212
Most will say he won't make it to us either. You know what, they can't all be 1st round picks. QBs will sneak in there to take some spots away. Some teams will handle their safety needs in FA. Also Jonathon Cyprien is going to rise up the ranks so I think Reid may be there. There will be a MHR Short Board bio about him soon. I'll keep it brief.
He possesses the ideal build and athleticism for the position, shows excellent instincts and is a scrappy, tenacious defender whose big hits and ball skills make him a legitimate weapon in the deep patrol.
He throws his body around. Reid is a fantastic downhill athlete with quick read-and-react ability to attack the play with steam spurting from his ears. But his biggest strength is also his greatest weakness, playing with nonstop aggressiveness and intensity, but he doesn't always control that hostility in a smart way on the football field.
#90 Brian Winters OG Kent State 6-4 310
#123 Stepfan Taylor RB Stanford 5-09 216
Well-built with a thick, powerful lower half. Commits quickly to the hole and possesses adequate initial burst to clear it before it collapses. Doesn't shy away from contact, and keeps his feet churning on impact. Keeps his weight forward through the hole and on contact, and is able to grind out the extra half-yard falling down. Protects the ball well through traffic, and exhibits awareness to shift the ball to his outside hand prior to engaging defenders. Although his skill set suits a one-cut running system, he does display some shiftiness and wiggle to make defenders miss in space. Possesses surprising burst out of a redirect or stop-start. Highly effective pass-catcher, consistently plucking the ball off his frame and looking it in before turning upfield. Gets his eyes upfield quickly after the catch and wastes little motion in transition. Relied upon heavily at Stanford to stay home and pass protect, and did so effectively, particularly on cut-blocks and chips, where he displayed good physicality and use of low leverage. Will get over-eager on set-up runs to the outside, and will out-pace his blocks as a result. Doesn't always spot the cutback lane, and will engage defenders head-on rather than utilize open lateral space. Is a low-step runner who is too easy to bring down at the ankles. Can be indecisive when presented with multiple holes, and hesitation results in missed opportunity due to lack of elite initial burst. Runs a bit narrow-footed in space resulting in the occasional balance check when asked to jump-cut or move laterally with suddenness. Is not a burner, and lacks a second gear to pull away from secondaries. Despite his knack for grinding out the extra yard, is not a pile-mover and lacks raw power to consistently pound out excessive yards after contact.
#159 Micah Hyde CB Iowa 6-0 196
I see Hyde as somewhere between 15-20 on CB ranks. He could last this long.
#175ish from Cleveland Michael Mauti ILB Penn State 6-2 239
Mauti played really well this year and helped his stock, but he blew out a knee late in the season. The knee injury points to a huge medical red flag. Mauti tore his right ACL in 2009 and his left ACL in 2011. If it weren't for the injuries, he could've been a second-day pick.
#237 Will Pericak DT Colorado 6-4 300
-Jon Major OLB Colorado 6-1 235
-Reggie Dunn WR Utah 5-10 172 4.38
Kuper restructures his contract
Clady signs a 6 year deal
Free Agents in 2013
Lance Ball, RB (RFA)
Chris Gronkowski, FB (RFA)
Chris Clark, OT (RFA)
Britton Colquitt, P (RFA)
Sorry to the Ball and Gronk haters but I think all restricted FAs will be given offers.
Mitch Unrein, DT (ERFA)
Tony Carter, CB (ERFA)
Exclusive Rights FAs just get the 3rd year minimum salary I believe.
Ryan Clady OT-Yes, for whatever it takes. May have to franchise him.
Kevin Vickerson DT-Yes, for reasonable 2 year deal. I think he will get more money elsewhere.
Matt Willis, WR-Yes, for reasonable 1 year deal.
Jason Hunter DE-Yes, for reasonable 1 year deal.
David Bruton S-Yes, for reasonable 1 year deal.
Dan Koppen C-Yes, for reasonable deal. I think he will get better offers elsewhere.
Brandon Stokley WR-Yes, for reasonable one year deal.
Justin Bannan DT-Yes, for reasonable one year deal.
Ty Warren DT-Yes, for reasonable one year deal.
Jim Leonhard S-Yes, for reasonable deal.
Keith Brooking MLB-No
Tracy Porter CB-No
If said yes, give them an offer to stay, it does not mean I hope that they make the team. That's to be determined much later this year.
