Hes a good solid vet who can still play. Not earth shattering but adds depth to a position we have 2 really young players at.

Dunno, I live near Cleveland and never heard of him. But....I ignore 99% of everything that has to do with Cleveland.

solid signing, par for the course of what the philosophy of Elway has been so far.
build through the draft unless the value is warranted to sign the FA.

Cleveland had a top pass defense last year, and this guy started at FS. Just saying.

He's right in the age range to be our Safety.

A. You have no idea how much I'm worth.

B. That has nothing to do with anything.

C. I'd be pissed because I value our cap to sign other people and don't want to dump a significant amount into an underwhelming sign.

Solid signing.not flashy, good vet..mainly to tutor the young bucks as they progress. Will probably replace Dawkins as I think Dawk is done. Need some experience to steady things back there.

Well, great the Broncos signed someone, but reality is just another player. Broncos sure love players from the Browns it seems.

7th highest rated coverage safety in the NFL last year, not so good against the run and was near the top in the NFL in completion % at only 52.4%. Also had 3 picks last year with 1 going back to the house.

Dude is a solid signing willl be a great field general, hes a leader, and a smart safety that understands how to play safety. Look around Cleveland fans are pissed they lost this dude to us.

just because hes not flashy doesn't mean he can't help, less biting on play fakes.

lets be honest we needed a vet at safety with Dawkins likely retiring.

Rascal

An upgrade at safety. Unfortunately it won't matter as we still have nobody at DT, MLB, and #2CB.

Drek
03-15-2012, 06:15 PM
Not a bad addition. They're clearly leaving the door open for Rahim Moore to get his ass in gear and/or for Dawkins to come back though. If both happen (Moore steps up and Dawkins comes back) we're four deep at safety and looking pretty good.

The real concern here is that you can't ask Adams, Carter, Moore, or Dawkins to have to cover for an invalid like Goodman, or finish off run play after run play when our DTs fail to contain the run.

wasted signing. The guy is 30 years old and only started one full season....last year.

He's a scrub!

Way to light it up EFX!!!

I like the pick. Sounds like a good citizen, high character kind of guy. Brings some veteran leadership. Works for me.

Agreed, solid starter. This definitely looks like Fox is holding out hope that the kids are eventually going to figure it out. This signing wasn't for the long term.

sweet...we needed an FS in a major way. Bring back Bdawk at SS and we're set.

We just need to keep a vet safety around while we hope Carter, Moore learn how to play. By next yr if one of them hasn't stepped up I would think they start looking for younger saftey's again.

I was hoping for a big OG to upgrade the oline but it looks like the Broncos brain trust feels like the oline is good to go. I just think they often got pushed around inside.

We start two safeties man. We need both of them to step up.

Thankfully Carter already did last season and if he builds on it at all this off-season he should be a solid starter for us. Moore is a wild card. If we could team Adams with Dawkins as situational safeties while we see if Moore develops we'd be doing ok. Any roster that has Rafael Bush making the 53 man has serious ****ing issues though.

We need Dawk to return and further mentor these young safeties. He was still highly productive when healthy last year, even if limited in coverage.

Sounds like what we need seeing how the Patsy's and KFC are featuring 2 TE's.

I liked Mike Adams joining the Broncos. They have an excellent run defense, but donít have all the pieces in the pass game. Adams has been successful in coverage before, and should easily be able to crack the starting lineup and make an impact.

Hey we got another 3rd stringer to be a starter for us. I bet we had to pay him all of the veteran minimum. Boy EFX is sure wise. Such a prudent signing! Yay.

Does anyone actually have a good reason to hate on Mike Adams? Considering this signing is insurance that Dawkins doesn't return, I don't see what the problem is. Most all you queers are whiny whores. Grow some nuts.

Adams is what you call a "value signing." He has about 5k mikes left of tread.

Excellent run D? Good run D, as we had Bunkley.....now? I agree Adams should help our coverage, which was horrible last year, but I'm starting to think that teams are just going to run it down the Broncos throats if they don't get a hold of this DT position....and the MLB position!!
