While I question this teams defensive personnel, the offseason isn't over and we have Fox and Del Rio. I will trust that these two know what they are doing. That or Elway is ignoring them and making their jobs much harder.

It's simple, Banaan can play and McBean was suspended. Wouldn't be surprised if we have a deal close with another veteran.

Wouldn't be surprised if Kendall Reyes is the pick at #25.

this changes nothing, DT was the need before and it's the need now, McBean was depth as replaced by Bannan. he wasn't going to start and was facing a 6 game suspension.

that said, may the good lord have mercy on Elway's soul if he doesn't pick a DT in round one now.
cause draft day will be ugly. something tells me we trade up to get Fletcher Cox though.

That's true. Is he worth keeping around just because our depth is so terrible? Sadly at this point, yes. I would have preferred they waiting until after the draft so they actually had a bird in the hand.

still almost nothing behind them though and that means two injuries away from having no DT's and moving Ayers to DT assuming we have a DE to replace him.

i fully expected at least 2 DT's before this move, now i'd say 3 if the value is good enough.

As it stands at DT we currently have:
Justin Bannan
Kevin Vickerson
Ben Garland(Will be his rookie season, was in military)
Mitch Unrein
Sealver Siliga
Marcus Thomas

Fox isn't known to go heavy on DT's. I only see us taking 2, unless we trade out of the first round.

I think they bring in one journeyman vet from the scrap heap after the draft, then also draft one DT in first 3 rounds, and probably 2 overall. Just a guess though.

Thomas is a FA, Del Rio is the new DC and he loves DT's, Warren,Vickerson and Bannan are the only guys who are potential locks to make the roster.
that's piss poor depth and only one in Warren should be a legit starter if he stays healthy.

Thomas is likely to re-sign with the team. He said on twitter he is just waiting on Denver.

Unless they don't want him, he will be a Broncos this season.

Del Rio isn't the head coach, Fox opinion weights more on Elway than Del Rio's.

Newsflash: Teams can acquire players through December. If Denver is clearing a little room to make a RFA run, it should wait until the 20th to ink the deal.

Don't forget, fore veterans typically become available after the draft. That, by the way, has me hoping the Rams take Richardson and let S-Jax go. An all-grass field division, an actually passing game and a title contender would look good to a stud RB on the back half of his career.

i fully expected at least 2 DT's before this move, now i'd say 3 if the value is good enough.

I think it's pretty safe to assume we will carry 4 "true" DTs with Ayers also able to play inside on nickel.

Warren and Vickerson were our starters last year in the preseason. Bunk was backing up Warren at NT. Vickerson was our 3 down DT, switching to NT in nickel with Ayers sliding inside.

Since we are in "Win now, Manning mode", I doubt we're going to rely on rooks at DT to start. I think we now have 3 of our 4 DTs, with the draft likely to provide one more within the first 4 rounds, and that rook will be a 3 tech backup. Assuming, of course, we don't re-sign Marcus Thomas to back up Vick once again. Unrein probably sits on the practice squad in the event of an injury.

Right or wrong (I side with wrong), it appears this is the direction EFX wants to go (again). I think we take only one DT. I'm just hoping it's in the 1st or 2nd Round.

I'm fine with him being cut too, I think he should have been cut or traded last season though.

The question and issue surrounding this, is what could it mean about the draft and post draft at the position.


Will Ben Garland be good, will Ty Warren rebound, who will be the camp bodies, how many Defensive linemen are we gonna take in the draft.

Mat'hir Uth Gan

If that's the case, one has to wonder if DJ Williams is next. With Woodyard on a 2 year backup calliber deal and some pretty solid WILL LBs likely to be available between the Late 1st and Late 2nd (Zach Brown, Bobby Wagner, Lavonte David, and maybe Mychal Kendricks), I wonder if we'll turn the page on Williams. LB is pretty easy to have an impact as a rookie, and we will need another nickel 'backer for 6 games regardless. (Nobody wants Mays in there for passing downs next to Woodyard).

If that suspension did get upheld, that makes things very interesting at LB now as well.

Martin wont be on the board by the time we pick at 3rd. He's a late 2nd pick, early 3rd.

Word around the net it that the Eagles, Cowboys, Chargers, and Chiefs are interested in Brockers.

Not likely he'd fall to us. I think a more realistic first round pick would be Jerel Worthy or Devon Still.

With us taking either Thompson or Martin with the 2nd pick, a running back(maybe Turbin) in the 3rd.

Brockers has a chance to be there @25..
Eagles like Cox, Cowboys like Poe, Chargers need a pass rusher from OLB, Chicago likes a DE with their pick.

Martin may not make the third round pick, I'll take who's available between he and Thompson.

He had the option to either serve first or play first. He picked to server first.

Garland is required by Department of Defense policy to serve at least 24 months active duty before applying for an early release. If granted, his remaining three years of active duty will be served in the Reserve for a period of six years.

Unless they don't want him, he will be a Broncos this season.

Del Rio isn't the head coach, Fox opinion weights more on Elway than Del Rio's.

Fox is a defensive HC, Del Rio is a defensive HC, Fox & Del Rio were together in Carolina before Del Rio went to Jacksonville.
any HC is going to try to make sure his coordinators have the tools they need.
this is the 2nd DC in 2 seasons for Fox and he'll likely work with Del Rio to make sure they get some guys on draft day. more importantly, what head coach do you know of that is going to say "i want you to run the defense but i'm only gonna give you 3 bodies to work with and maybe one draft pick to run you defense."

McBean was not released because he was not under contract. His tender was rescinded and it was a $1.5m one. Too pricey for a guy with a 6 game suspension hanging over his head. He's only worth the league minimum at best around $700k.

Five years in the league. Four with Denver. An average of ten tackles per year. Career total of four sacks. Offset by three 15-yard penalties for facemasking. Now suspended in upcoming season for 6 games for substance abuse.

It may not be easy but I think life here in Denver will still find a way to go on somehow.

According to Josina Anderson, Thomas is looking for a long-term deal and his people are throwing it out there that they have 2 good offers on the table, considering he never visited any team I call bull**** on that.

Jesus Christ that's a depressing group of slap ***** and has beens.

Jeremy Jarmon was cut last year after we traded Gaffney for him. Gaffney went on to have a career year and a career twitter rage...which was awesome.

Ty Warren's played only slightly more NFL football in the past two years than most posters on this board.

Most of these guys are past their prime. The rest of them never had a prime and this guy here is dead.

I want to see what Jarmon's got. He was a legit 3rd round pick who lost his senior year on a drug test that found some over the counter but banned supplement. He lost his job in Wash when Shanny went with the 3-4, and then tried to convert to the 4-3 under/over tackle role. And, they got three guys who are legit NFL players (assuming they're healthy) and really only Warren seems to be 'permanently injured with something or another"

It's just not ALL that bad. It's just that it's the easiest thing to bitch about after Den signed the top FA and 3 guys in the top 50 or so.

Well, he made the skins roster his first two seasons in the league, and he had a decent SEC career. I mean I don't know. He was a throw away to drop Gaffney's contract for sure, but he was in the Skins rotation and didn't take to changing from DE to DT. Camp fodder is a UDFA.

He's got the right build for U/O tackle, and coming from a DE, he should have a decent first step to get into the gap. It looks to me that EFX are getting vets with size to fill the NT role, and they're lining up smaller/younger guys to rotate in as penetrators.

Actually I'll wait till the first cuts start happening before the season to worry about DT.

I really don't think the DT 'uproar' is all that warranted.. now if Vickerson and Warren are still hindered by injury, then maybe...

The plan.

Step 1. Cut/ignore all DT's due to be suspended. Step 2. Watch fans freak out for some reason. Step 3. Profit.
