Horse Tracks - 2/27/10 - Combine Continues


Good Morning Broncos Country!  I will have much more on the Darrent Williams' Murder Trial, so those links are left out.  Speaking specifically about football, the NFL Combine continues, with the list of players NOT working out grows each day.  Already we know that Tim Tebow, Colt McCoy and Dan LeFevour won't workout on the QB side, and now comes news that a hamstring injury will keep WR Dez Bryant from working out.  Bryant has been tied to the Broncos in several mock drafts and is considered by many to be the best WR prospect in the Draft.

Hampton deal is a win for the Steelers | National Football Post
The Steelers appear to have gotten a bargain Thursday with the signing of nose tackle Casey Hampton. While the Packers, Patriots and 49ers are -- at least for the moment -- going year to year with their beefy defensive tackles, using the franchise tag to lock in one-year, $7-million deals with Ryan Pickett, Vince Wilfork and Aubrayo Franklin, respectively, the Steelers have taken a different route, probably due to their ability to forge a favorable agreement.

The deal, which will not be formally presented to ownership until the owners’ meetings in late March, will clearly be the second biggest business issue, after the state of labor relations themselves.
