God no. He's the Kim Kardashian of DT's. He looks so damn good that teams are willing to overlook that he's a selfish, egomaniacal twit with no ability to make a relationship work. Who knows if the guy has any game left?

He was the #5 DT on the Pats who, outside of Wilfork, have next to nobody with any real talent. They have been begging for someone with any semblance of a pass rush to step it up and he did nothing but regress. If he had any game left at all, he'd still be there.

He is done.

we used to grab a happy hour beer and watch Fat Al sit at the bar and eat/drink by himself at Jackson's in Tyson's all the time....Dude had a gray cloud above him and was almost unapproachable. The team has good character now, no more Ihops, Carters, Marshalls needed.

I just think his best play came playing the 1 gap, penetrate and attack scheme which is what our DTs are running most of the time.

His nonsense started when he had to engage blockers instead going to a 3-4 in DC and a similar role in NE.

He'll play for the veteran minimum and you tell him to attack a gap.

But like I said, I trust Dennis Allen and what he's done with the defense to make the right call. Either way I'm ok with it.

Some of us would rather not have on our team little boys who beat up women, no matter how semi-talented they are with a football.

We more than replaced Marshall's numbers and he's not nearly done as well since leaving for Miami. As a bonus, we didn't have to pay him all that money that he's not really worth. We get on QB's about their completion %, Brandon drops nearly half of passes thrown his way (aka he needed a LOT of targets to get those 100 receptions when he was here). He's not good with his back to the QB. And he's not a good locker room guy.

So to sum up:
1) He likes to hit women
2) His production isn't worth his contract

This has to be BS. Bill Belichick is famous for matching his systems to his players and never asking them to do things unless they are well suited for it. When evaluating players, the first words out of his mouth to his scouts are "Don't tell me what he can't do. Tell me what he excels at." There's no way he would've signed him knowing as we all do that he'd be setting him up to fail by playing him in a system that doesn't fit his talents. That's clearly a Broncos-type coaching move right there.

i say bring him in. the Patriots are footing the bill on him this year anyway, and considering we are still in the mix in the division a upgrade to the DT position would help a lot. Fox is a players coach, we have the veteran defensive leadership to keep him under control as a rental player for the rest of the season. also if he plays at 80% of what he is capable of for us he is a major upgrade to our line.

I realize that that's the spin they tried to put on it, but here are the facts:

1. None signed for more than $5 mil a year. That's nothing for a DT that would've immediately stepped in as our #1 DT.

2. There was a mix of 1 gap, 2 gap and NT guys available. None of them fit what we wanted to do? That tells me one thing. We should've changed our scheme to fit their talents instead. I mean, seriously.....who on our current roster was so good that they were making a change in scheme impossible to consider.

3. Not interested? Agreed. But that's just dumb IMO. The deepest, most talented, youngest group of DTs all free agents at the same time.....a position of HUGE need. It has never happened in the history of the game and will probably never happen again. And we let it pass. And topped it off by not drafting any.

i agree, if they really wanted one they could have gotten one, but we are forgetting we threw a nice chuck of change at Warren. we paid Vickerson like a FA we brought in, we paid Thomas, traded for Bunkley. the team made moves to address the DL. and it is really light and day in comparing last season's group to this season and i tend to think we wouldn't still be talking about this issue had injuries not decimated the DL.

"We thought about writing about Haynesworth’s struggles last night, but waited until we talked to a few NFL personnel executives to see if they came away with the same opinion.

“On the ground three-straight times and didn’t seem at all to mind!” one said. “Just stopped moving his feet on each play.”

so your complaining that Denver didn't go after any FA DT and now that i clearly showed you they did, you complain we didn't spend enough.

Bunkley has played well and at 600,000 is a major steal and a well worth it trade. i would be happy to see him signed for the next few years. Thomas has playeddecent when he is on the field healthy, if he got a couple more years in Denver i would not mind. just because the guys we spent most money got injured doesn't make our additions a waste. in fact it is nice that we didn't go overboard on spending since they did get injured.

No, No, No, No and No. Not what I'm saying at all.

I don't even count Thomas because he was already on the team and was a freaking backup on the 32nd ranked defense in the entire NFL. Is that really an investment? Not IMO.

Same with Vickerson, essentially.

Bunkley wasn't a free agent so he's not part of my criticism.

So that leaves Ty Warren. The only non-Bronco free agent signing. Yippee. I knew from day one that one would never work out even if he didn't get hurt, but whatever.

See razor's list below and feel free to add Aubrayo Franklin to that list. Those were some young, talented free agents with upside that would've been immediate significant upgrades in just about any system we could hope to run.

my bad bro. misunderstood your earlier post.

you can't count Thomas and Vickerson out though. not because they were on the team prior. this team is completely revamped, new system in place and that is where the Thomas and Vickerson signings get notice. had this been a situation where we remained a 3-4 defense and brought them back i would be right with you that it was just a cost cutting stop gap move basically.

but being that we have converted back to a 4-3 it is like bringing in 2 guys whose strengths work better in a 4-3 system.

Warren was a reach signing to me as well. very high reward if he returned healthy and 100% but that was doubtful.

idk, i just don't think Cofield, Franklin or any of the others available that were the big fish in the small pond would have been so great of an acquisition that we should still have the "what if" going with theem.

IIRC just one arrest. Yes I was pissed at Rod at the time. He also completed counseling and didn't have any incidents after that.

If it was a one-time thing Brandon did and then he looked like he actually learned his lesson, then I wouldn't say it.

You're conveniently leaving out:

Attitude issues, personality issues. Same as Haynesworth.
Now, tell me why do you want to consider an even bigger POS to come to "play" for us?

I don't.

You know he's been benched, yes?

So your saying at 600,000 he's not a bargain

Clearly not as much as McBean and Thomas.

This is the kind of risky move that Mike Shanahan would get roundly applauded when it happened and then get absolutely slaughtered for it when things went south. If I were Elway, I'd say thanks but no thanks.

You're right. Shanny would pay the guy a huge amount of money to play out of position, the old round peg, square hole issue... wait a second, that already kindof happened...

Maybe Elway and Fox are smart enough to bring him in as a 4-3 DT and see if he can work in a defensive scheme he likes? just saying...

If the Patriots can't get you motivated to play, i don't think anyone else will be able to either. To include Dawkins.

Give me a ****in' break.

Two gaps, one gap. . . it became abundantly clear a while ago that Haynesworth flat-out isn't interested in playing any gaps since he got paid. Hoping that embarrassment will motivate the guy at this point is nothing more than pissing in the wind. A couple of orange traffic cones will do just as much for us as Fat Albert would.

I love how that gif gets posted in a joking way here, but the sad fact is, he got more push on that one "lazy" play than any of our DTs have gotten in years.

I'll take a less talented guy who gives 100% then a guy who used to have talent who quits on 50% of the plays he's in on.

F this loser. He got paid big dollars and ever since he's been terrible. He's got no drive to be great anymore.

Rumor is he dogged it to get cut so he could go play in Philly.

I argued against trading for him, but if they bring him in on the cheap to take a flyer, who could argue? If it doesnt work out, what are they out? I am fine either way, but if we find ourselves suddenly in the mix of a playoff race, it couldnt hurt to take a look.

I would date Fat Albert. It's a half year Tryouts essentially. He plays well and with some good effort you extend him, if not he is gone. Low risk for potentially high reward.

Watch him go to the Lions. Connects to their HC (former DC for the Titans).

If he becomes what he used to be there...then holy **** is that the best D-Line in the NFL.

Agreed. I'm just pointing out the irony of that gif.

The guy is so grossly out of shape, he'll have a stroke playing here at altitude...

If he can still bring it, he'll be playing for somebody right now.
Just ask Popps. There's a reason 3 coaches didn't want to play him...

There was a poll in PFT this morning. Albert is the fourth most hated player in the NFL by other players. Probably not a good idea for the lockerroom. Vick is number one.

Clayton said three teams were looking at him and Denver wasn't one of them. Bucs, Lions, and Eagles. Take that for what its worth.

Do the Lions really need another DT?

If healthy he would free up Suh better then Williams I guess.

Then I guess they want to go from "Tied for last place" to "Sole possesion of last place"
