So trade deadline is today at 4pm and there are some interesting names popping up. Any thoughts on either the Broncos or any other team takes a shot at these guys?

-Peyton Hillis- sounds like the Browns have made him available and teams are making calls for him.

Teams making calls on Browns RB Peyton Hillis. Don't think a trade is all that likely but not impossible either

-Asante Samuel- they're looking for defensive veterans specifically in the front 7 and OL help, you think we try and put together an offer with DJ and something else?

nfl NFL
RT @JasonLaCanfora: Its certainly possible. Samuel very likely in his last year in Philly. Eagles loaded with picks though. Need LBs & OL

Then there's our guys, Orton probably stuck here now that oakland has Palmer, Royal probably not going anywhere and I think would even more so signify "sucking for Luck" if we unloaded him. DJ possibly on the block but no real takers or updated news on him.

Go Broncos!

The Bears supposedly have Forte on the block....I guess they don't feel like paying. Strange, didn't the guy have like 200 yards rushing a couple of weeks ago?

Behind that line, that's a miracle.....when all is said and done, I bet very little happens...(trade wise..)

Forte is an interesting case, dude accounts for over 50% of their total offensive yards but somehow they think he's just another guy and replaceable. Not like Marion Barber is going to step in and replace that.

The only report of Hillis being available, that I have seen, is based on a repoter speculating that they may want to trade him. The Browns have said multiple times that Hillis is not up for trade...

This new CBA (really just the removing the cap hit from spreading out signing bonus) has already changed the ability of teams to trade. Is it going to be a lot more like baseball at the trade deadline from now on?

I wonder if Forte put his house up for sale yet.

I still don't think we will ever see a baseball type trade deadline because it is so difficult to integrate an NFL player in a new system mid-season, so there is less incentive for teams making a run at the playoffs sending away a big package of picks.

As if Cutler is not getting sacked enough already. Yeah. Let's get rid of the running game.

If we make trades it won't be players coming in it will be our players going out and picks coming our way, we gave up Lloyd for a 5th (yeah we get the fifth he will get 30 catches easy) that tells me they are trying to stack up their picks to make some moves in the draft.

**** Hillis I would rather keep riding w/ McGahee.

Wouldn't mind a CB but really don't see the broncos giving up picks at all.

If I were EFX I would be very interested in Forte. Dude can be a 25 carry guy, catches well, and has showed up despite not being happy. I would do a 2nd and Moreno... But I think the Broncos want that 2nd for bargaining power. Still, I would take Forte over Richardson any day!

Cap room isn't an issue, up front money may be though. Forte will likely get 5 years and $40m. Guessing $13-16m in bonuses with another $10m in guaranteed money.

Get Samuel and if the Bears are really stupid enough to put up Forte go for him as well.

Although after the fleecing of the Raiders the price for these guys has probably shot way up.

**** Forte. Overrated player. He's not "horrible" but hardly worth trading for. Their offense is based around feeding their RB the ball. Inflated numbers.

Samuel is going to be 31 in January. I'd rather get DRC from the Eagles if anyone.

**** Forte. Overrated player.

Wow, really? 527 yds and a 5.3 avg rushing, 381 yds receiving, so far this year. Forte is a stud. Only thing holding him back the last couple of years has been a bad O-line. He's a top 5 back in my opinion.

If you want to trade our first and a second, plus sign him to a mega contract, be my guest.

Their offense doesn't have a whole lot of blocking. I have been watching Forte since he came in the league; he is a legit monster running and catching the ball. He has the best, smoothest cut move in the entire NFL which is well enough since defenders are frequently in the backfield. Put him on a strong blocking team and he tears it up for sure.

Oh I don't want to do that either, and I'm not worried about it because I know it isn't going to happen. But I had to respond to your comment that Forte is overrated because I 100% disagree. If anything he's underrated.

Nope, you either have to call him overrated and just above "horrible" or else you have to trade away our first and second round picks for him. There's no in between.

The Bears don't have Forte on the block, there was just a news report that a couple of teams were testing the waters to see if he was available.

That would be hilarious (and kind of sad) if Miami and Denver both traded their best WRs before they played each other. Pretty sure we have more behind Lloyd than they do behind Marshall though. Man do they look stupid for trading for that nutjob right now. And if they think they're going to get anything more than a conditional 2nd for the guy they are as crazy as he is.

How anyone can call Forte overrated is just baffling to me. Guy is a certified stud, playing with a **** o-line, and is really well-rounded as a back.
