I have been watching the Mile High Report for 7 years or so. This forum is really where I keep up with everything Broncos. I have thoroughly enjoyed the offseason thus far. I do have an idea for MLB that I hope we explore. I would really like to see us sign Rolando McClain for a year and give him a chance to shine. I was born in Colorado, raised in San Diego (Phillip Rivers antics give me great joy when they lose), and run my company in Alabama. I got a close up view of McClain playing for Alabama (War Eagle). McClain was amazing during his 3 year stay at Alabama. He came from a difficult family life and nearly crashed and burned in the NFL. Because I am well connected in Alabama, I have heard some promising things about the way he is going about his life these days. He is back enrolled and either finished with his degree or close. He is a great 3-4 linebacker who I believe could flourish as a 4-3 thumper. His instincts, in my opinion, will make him succeed in both systems. I think giving him a 1 year deal to succeed would be a stroke of genius. I like Shazier as well and maybe have both but McClain would likely come cheap with tremendous upside.
I would personally live to see him overcome and have a great deal of compassion for young men that come from fractured homes and would love to see him come of age in Denver. Visions of his play from Alabama in Orange and Blue make me think that the player we need is cheap and available after June 1st ( I think the Ravens rights are up then)
