The Kansas City Chiefs made two bargan basement moves. They signed 27 year old offensive lineman Jeff Linkenbach formerly with the Colts for 1 year at 900,000.00 and 29 year old linebacker Joe Mays formerly with the Texans, the Broncos and the Eagles for 2 years at 3 million a year.
In the first 90 minutes of free agency the chiefs lost 5th receiver Wide Receiver Dexter Mcluster to the Titans, 7th year Tackle Branden Albert to the Dolphins, 6th year Defensive End Tyson Jackson to the Falcons, 5th year Offensive Guard Jon Asamoah to the Falcons and 6th season Guard Geoff Schwarts to the Giants. Akeem Jordan has his bags packed…
The San Diego Chargers have been real busy signing and renegotiating players contracts. Coming into the off-season, the team's biggest need was re-signing their own players, which they did, before the start of free-agency, i.e. Donald Butler, Darrell Stuckey, and Chad Rinehart. The team also reworked the contracts of Jarret Johnson and Eddie Royal,. REMEMBER EDDY? He use to be a Bronco...
They cut ties with cornerback Derek Cox, cornerback Johnny Patrick, as well as FB Le'Ron McClain. The Chargers signed 6th year running back Donald Brown formally a colt. In addition Colts Interior lineman Kavell Conner is suppose to visit the Chargers.
So how do you think the Broncos have faired so far with the signings of hard hitting 5th year pro bowl safety T.J. Ward, from the Browns, 7th year corner back Aqib Talib, ftom the Patriots and 10th year Defensive End the renown Demarcus Ware from Dallas. The Broncos resigned 7th year receiver Andre Caldwell.
The Broncos offensive player salaries were so out of line that it is no surprise that home grown talented 5th year wide receiver Eric Decker signed with the jets, home grown talented 5th year offensive lineman Zane Beadles signed with the Jaguars.
The Broncos attempted to resign 7th year Corner Back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie but he over played his value and the Broncos pulled their offer.
16th year cornerback Champ Bailey is gone along with 11th year safety Mike Adams, 13th year middle linebacker Paris Lenon 9th year offensive guard Chris Kuper, 13th year cornerback Quentin Jammer, 9th year safety Michael Huff, 7th year center / guard Steve Vallos, and 9th year offensive tackle Winston Justice.
So how do you feel The Broncos faired in the NOT SO WILD West? We lead the division. The Broncos lost only 1 of 8 division games to the Chargers. How do we stack up so far this year? Will Elway trade away the 31st pick? I think he will if there is a buyer… What do you think our greatest need is? I think we need a solid straight forward, line moving hard hitting fullback. The offense needs more ball control even though I enjoy the fast pace quick strike offense of Peyton Manning.
