Immediate Reaction and Notes

  • There is one too-many because Brandon Marshall is still on the Reserved-Suspended list.  One more move will have to be made when he is activated, but this allows the Broncos to get the lay of the Free agent landscape.
  • On offense, I had predicted that Darius Walker would make it over LaMont Jordan.  I was wrong.  There are reasons why, more than Jordan's New England past, why this could have happened.  Pass protection is one of them.  In the end, however, Jordan is the 4th RB behind KnowMo, Buckhalter and Hillis.  I can live with it even though I don't agree with it. 
  • I had though the Broncos would go with 6 WR's, IF Jabar Gaffney's thumb was progressing well.  The fact the Broncos went with 7 doesn't necessarily mean it is not, but that the coaches value depth at WR more than RB or some other areas.
  • The addition of Vonnie Holliday mean alot momre than just what the guy can do on the football field.  It is another veteran voice in the locker room, a coach on the field.  He has alot of experience in all defenses and will help the young guys learn the nuances of the 3-4
  • Don't get too comfortable with this roster.  I fully expect it to change between now and mid-week after the team has the chance to scoru the waiver-wire.
