DB - 50th Anniversary Team: Offense - Broncos TV
Here's a wonderful video highlighting the offensive candidates for the Broncos' all-time team on that still-tiny player. As usual, this thing could stand to be about 48 hours long...

DB - Reunited in Orange and Blue
Daniel Graham says he hasn't had any trouble adjusting back to Josh McDaniels' offense. He even says it's fun, although keep in mind DG came home to Denver in part to be a bigger part of the passing game. Of course, that hasn't really worked out; gotta wonder how he really feels!

Wes Bunting thinks the Broncos should consider choosing DE Jeremy Jarmon out of Kentucky today in the Supplemental draft.

When it's BDawk's turn, of COURSE Jamie Dukes points out that it's going to be tough to watch him in a different uniform, "especially because it's the Denver Broncos." This guy is just some kind of jerk, huh?

NFLN - NFL Videos: Top 10 QBs drafted No. 1
Dukes begrudgingly admits Elway is The Greatest QB picked 1st overall, although he didn't do enough research to figure out whether Elway went to 5 or 6 Super Bowls. He says Elway "maybe deserves to be No. 1 on the list."

NFP - A close look at the Suggs, Cassel deals
Matt Bowen doesn't like the Cassel deal. I'll have to disagree, as the guy was already guaranteed $14.5 million in '09. Essentially the deal saves KC the trouble/drama/stress of having to go through this again next year. I mean, even if he's terrible this year I can't imagine them wanting to get rid of him. They only guaranteed him an extra year's worth of pay, which they probably would've had to do anyway.
