Thrifty



The Broncos are in a rebuilding year. Although it hasn't been made official, pundits everywhere are predicting a switch to a 3-4 Defense, which'll require fat fat men. Since this season is likely to be a wash, I recommend bringing in some veterans now to mentor the youngins. No I'm not talking about Julius Peppers or Albert Haynesworth. Obviously having those guys would be great but IMO not worth the price they'll command.

I'd like to see the Broncos work out two aging studs that have recently been let go by their teams: Ravens CB Chris McAlister and Jaguars RB Fred Taylor. Both of these guys have reached the twilight of their careers but at least one of them probably has a good year left in them. Both are wealthy and are just looking to extend their careers so the Broncos probably wouldn't have to dig deeply. Not flashy, not long term solutions, but they just might be able to help ease this transition and allow the Broncos to stop some gaps this year in order to spread the needs over two years.

The Broncos don't need Fred Taylor. The Broncos are set at RB. CB is not a huge need either.

Broncos release Dre Bly. The plot thickens.

Love these posts. Keep them coming.
And bring ON the big refrigerator boys! Our defense has looked so lean for so long...
