Patriots want receiver Brandon LaFell, Broncos also interested

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

At this point, one wonders if John Elway is just trolling New England.

During his playing days, Denver Broncos general manager John Elway faced the New England Patriots ten times, winning all ten contests. Elway had New England's number then, and he still does today.

Track Free Agency

Last year, the Broncos stole Pro Bowl slot receiver Wes Welker out of New England on a two-year, $12 million deal. On Day 1 of this year's free agency signing period, Denver landed Patriots Pro Bowl cornerback Aqib Talib on six-year, $57 million deal hours after signing the Gronk Killer himself, T.J. Ward to a four-year, $23 million deal.

Now looking for a receiver to replace Eric Decker (who is visiting the Jets), Denver may again snatch a player out of New England. No, not Julian Edelman, but rather Panthers free-agent receiver Brandon LaFell.

LaFell (6'2", 210 pounds) is visiting the Patriots today, who are reportedly wanting to lock him up. Potentially slowing down the deal is Denver, who is showing "huge interest" in LaFell, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

While Denver considers LaFell, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora is reporting that free-agent pass rusher DeMarcus Ware could get as much as $10 million a season in Denver. Right now, it looks like the Broncos and Ware are just working out the details.

Stay tuned as we continue to follow these two developing stories.
