I understand that we are purging the defense, but realistically we will need at least a few veteran leaders on our young team and E.E. has always been a positive force on the team. More than likely he will walk and we will find the veteran leadership we need elsewhere, but out of all the soon-to-be former Broncos that are going to be hitting the street in a couple of weeks, Ebenezer Ekuban is the one guy I want to see come back and sign with us.
I also understand that five sacks to lead the team is a joke, but if I was given a choice between a guy like Tim Crowder and Ekuban, I'd pick Ekuban. I know Crowder is one of the young guys and all that but his potential is about what we already have in Ekuban. Crowder isn't a long-term solution for our team, so why not stick with the short-term sure thing in Ebenezer and part ways with Crowder now?
As for Jarvis Moss, he is still developing. In our instant-gratification culture, we tend to expect instant results from first-round draft picks as well. Even so, I am impressed with how Moss has carried himself in his first two seasons and I am also satisfied with his progression thus far. He is going to have a place on our team in the future, and having a good role model he can relate to like Ebenezer Ekuban will only help our rebuilding cause.
For these reasons, I consider Ekuban to be the only must re-sign defensive free agent on our roster. I acknowledge that this probably won't happen, but I will be more than pleased if it does.
