List cuts of other teams and who might be a good fit for the Broncos. We can keep a running thread of who has been released and who has been signed.

I'm not sure, I like Denver's receivers. he would be 4th best. Is he worth getting at the expense of Willis?

I like our starting receivers. Saw an awful lot of drops this preseason... making me wonder.

He's got sure hands and runs good routes.

I like Gaffney a lot and our top 3 WR's aren't exactly reliable when it comes to staying healthy. The problem with Gaffney is he doesn't play ST's, but I think he would be a realiable fair catcher on punt returns.

Gaffney right now is better than Stokely, he just isn't as in-tune with Manning. If Stokely went down, Gaffney would be a very reliable guy to put in the slot.

You are right he is pretty sure handed. You know I bet Manning would like him so he might not be a bad signing. I just hate to give up on young talent but maybe the young talent we have at WR and at Safety aren't worth keeping. I do look for a signing of a LBer and the release of Brooking.

Beliceat going ape **** on the Patriots roster for the crappy Offensive showing they have had. Released Chad Johnson, Donte Stallworth, and now Jabar Gaffney.

Patriots remaining WR's:
1. Welker
2. B. Lloyd
3. Deion Branch
4. Julian Edelman

Probably the slowest and oldest group in football.

I'd have him back in a heartbeat honestly.

Only 31 and was productive last year. The only question is his health, apparently he's had a few issues getting 100%.

I don't buy into the Lloyd hype, the Pats will use the TE's and Welker and work the centre of the field and dink and dunk like they always do.

Lloyd will probably make the odd big play here and there, but he's not even close to being Randy Moss.

I think Belly will let mCd CIDTL quite a bit this year, he let him chuck it deep to Moss the last year mCd was his OC. I think Lloyd will be fine making circus catches to keep Tommy looking good for another year or 2.

Hate to see them play us again this year but we at least have a fighting chance this year.

I know what teams do to beat Manning. Listen, I offer suggestions to help the team. DT depth doesn't hurt, it starts up front. Do you really like how Bannan and Unrein look? In fact outside of Warrens glowing TC reports, what DTs look good? And don't say Wolfe.

Yeah I wondered when the blood cut issue would come up. I had thought I read he was performing well and lost weight prior to the clot. Smith had reportedly lost weight and was in great shape. He knew his roster spot wasn't guaranteed. It's good sometimes to have players with something to prove. I don't think he was on IR either of the last two years..

And who has played well at DT in pre season?

Bmore Manning
08-27-2012, 06:43 PM
Run stuffers are less and less popular in the pass happy NFL. But Smith can stop the run. I like him in some exotic 3-4 looks and goal line and heavy packages. KC may bring him in for the same reason. He had 44 tackles and one sack in 6 games he started last year and 15 he played in. He's not a starter, he's a situational and scheme run defender.

Again who do you like at DT based on the preseason?

The Joker

No, but I do think he now has a QB who's vastly better than Kyle Orton. Orton spent a lot of time forcing the ball into Lloyd, you think Tom Brady is going to do the same when he's got targets like Welker, Gronk and Hernandez running about out there?

A large amount of Lloyd's production in 2010 also came in garbage time against soft coverage, Pats generally don't get blown out.

You seem to think McDaniels is going to go in there and put his own stamp on things and start doing things his way?

All those screens you talk about is something the Pats do a lot of already. Yeah they'll take some shots downfield like every team does, but I'm betting their bread and butter will come from the shorter stuff.

You may be right though, perhaps Belicheck will allow McDaniels to come in and phase one of the best TE combos the game has ever seen in order to spend games launching the ball at a 31 year old receiver whose only ever had one ood year. It could go either way.

Knowshown Moreno and James Starks potential cuts?
Adam Schefter said on ESPN's SportsCenter that the two former starting running backs for the Broncos and Packers (respectively) are in real danger of losing their jobs.
Moreno, a former first-round pick, seems to be the odd man out after the Broncos used a high pick on Ronnie Hillman. If Moreno does get the axe, he has enough raw talent as a former first-round pick to get at least one more shot with another team.
Meanwhile, Starks is struggling with a turf toe (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000053139/article/james-starks-in-danger-of-not-making-packers), and after the team was able to add Cedric Benson, Starks has become expendable.

I thought Starks had real potential in GB. I doubt Denver needs him but he'll land somewhere.

Hopefully, as teams like the Seahawks, Cardinals, and Saints cut some decent backs, the front office can bring in a depth guy.

If McGahee goes down, a rotation of Moreno and Lance Ball is dreadful and Hillman isn't ready to jump in as 10 or 15 carry guy.

1. Hillman was specifically drafted to be that guy. The Broncos are expecting big things out of him this year. Manning has spent a bunch of time coaching Hillman up...he just needs to get his hamstring healthy.

2. On a side note. It is becoming quite evident that Manning will once again, only use his top three receivers (just like in Indy), outside of injury. Whoever the 4th and 5th receivers are (Willis?, Caldwell?), they probably won't see much game action. Everybody clamoring for another WR, forget about it. It's not Manning's way.

Moreno is not making the team. I think Johnson has a better chance because of the $5 million that will be owed to Moreno next year. Outside of McGhee and Hillman no one is a lock. Denver could look at final cuts to pick someone up but I doubt it. I think the'll want to keep someone familar with Peyton's system. McGhee, Ball, Hillman and Gronk are my picks.

I think the only way Moreno gets cut is if the Broncos have the chance to bring in another RB who is NOT named MJD. That is, they won't release Moreno just to release him, they will have to have a replacement RB in place, who they think is better than Moreno.

Where have you heard the Broncos were keeping 5 RBs? I thought they would keep 4 with Gronk getting one of them.

Matt Willis is young. He disappears probably because he does not have QB trust or is not playing. Denver has an old vet in Stokley do they need another one on his last year?

Where have you heard the Broncos were keeping 5 RBs? I thought they would keep 4 with Gronk getting one of them.

If they do keep 5 then Moreno has a chance.

There is no reason not to keep 5 RB's. No other WR or TE deserves the spot.


QB (3) - Manning, Hanie, Osweiler
OL (8) - Clady, Beadles, Walton, Kuper, Franklin, Ramirez, Clark, Blake
TE (3) - Tamme, Dreessen, J. Thomas
WR (5) - DT, Decker, Stokley, Willis, Caldwell
RB (5) - McGahee, Ball, Hillman, Moreno, Gronkowski

DL (9) - Dumervil, Warren, Vickerson, Wolfe, Bannan, Unrein, Jackson, Beal, Ayers
LB (6) - Miller, Mays, Woodyard, Irving, Trevathan, Brooking
CB (6) - Bailey, Porter, Harris, Florence, T. Carter, Bolden
S (5) - Adams, Moore, Carter, Leonhard, Bruton

K - Prater
P - Colquitt
LS - Brewer



I wish they would cut Bannan to make room for Steven Johnson, but I don't see it happening.

I don't like the looks of that WR group at all. Stokes made nice catch on Sunday, but I think the nostalgia around reuniting with Manning outweighs his performance. Caldwell has shown nothing, and Willis is second rate.

I think by the time the second round of cuts come there will be many vet receivers Denver can sign better than Stallworth.

Stokley is one of Manning's chosen ones, and is a very integral part of this Offense. I would be surprised if he does not catch at least 50 balls this year. He has been featured throughout the preseason.

1. Hillman was specifically drafted to be that guy. The Broncos are expecting big things out of him this year. Manning has spent a bunch of time coaching Hillman up...he just needs to get his hamstring healthy.


I'm sure the Broncos are expecting big things out of him, but it ain't happening right away. And I say this as a big fan of the kid. Right now he looks like a naturally gifted kid that needs to get stronger and adjust to the speed of the game. It's not to say he won't contribute quickly, but I don't think he's ready to be a 15 carry back should Willis go down. Which leaves us Moreno (who I think made the team as a receiving RB last week), and Lance Ball who sucks.

Expecting Stokely to catch more balls this year than he did in his last TWO years with Manning in Indy seems like fantasy. He's had one 50+ catch season in his career, and has barely caught 50 passes in the last 3 years combined.

Like I said, the nostalgia surrounding Manning/Stokely far outweighs the likely production.

Hopefully they'll get Hillman up to speed over the first month of the season. Can't be eating skittles for dinner anymore. Remember, he has been flashing in camp, and he's still not all the way back from his hammy. He can start small, and begin to take on more of a workload throughout the season.

I do not think that has anything to do with anything. If Stokley is the starting slot receiver than he will catch balls. No reason to think he won't get anywhere form 40-60. Now if he is not starting all the time and cedes time to Caldwell than that can be a different subject, but as of now he is the slot guy and he'll get his catches.

This isn't nostalgia, it's a rebirth. Stokley has 5 catches in about three-quarters of preseason football. If you haven't noticed he's an integral part of the Manning no-huddle Offense.

We all wrote off Stokley as being camp fodder during OTA's, but he has established himself as one of Peyton's go-to guys.

Manning has averaged 34.6 pass attempts per game over his 13 NFL season. I suspect this year will be about the same. Factor in a 67% completion ratio, and your talking 370 completions:

DT - 80
Decker - 80

In Stokley's only two seasons in Indy where he played in all the games he had 68 receptions, and 41 receptions. Keep in mind, these are also years the Colts had Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, and Dallas Clark...that's about 54 catches per full-season.

I can see 30 catches being realistic if he can stay healthy, but that's a pretty big if.

Gaffney caught 68 passes last year, and would be a huge upgrade to the WR group.

If Decker or Thomas do down this group looks terrible. I know everyone is counting on the "Manning Effect" to turn scrubs into studs and resurrect the dead, but I'm doubtful.

Not too much of a stretch, Indy had 585, 601 and 679 pass attempts in 2008, 2009 and 2010. Since have a defense and a running game, I hope Manning isn't throwing more than 25-30 times a game.

Are you imagining that he's more likely to stay healthy now that he's 36 and basically came out of retirement?

You can point to all the mitigating circumstances you want, but he's caught more than 50 passes once in his 13 year career. To imagine all those factors that kept him from 50+ catches are going to magically disappear in his 14th year is pretty silly, imo.

Well, Donte was speeding and he amost 3X the legal limit. I think it is very safe to say if he wasnot speeding and was not drunk then he would not have hit the guy.

But that is neither here nor there. If Denver is planing on looking towards FA for a WR they need to hold off until the final cuts come next week. It will be a blood bath. it always is.

Broha had a couple sacks in a game in preseason, but I don't know much else about him.

The question about Jones was his speed and size to play any of the LB spots. Not a good sign he gets cut with a team that needs LB's. But he was so productive on a major college team, I'd sign him and see what he could do. ST's at least.

McCants is another guy I would take a look at. He needs more strength, but I think he's pretty athletic for an OT.

This.

Hoyer has to be better than Hanie....

And this.

I'm a MSU homer, but Hoyer is better than Hanie ever was or will be. Jones was a beast at State, and his release is a huge surprise after only one year. I'd take them both, and I bet Jones would be starting at MLB over anyone we have, which is not saying much.

The best part of that story is the back end. To rub salt in the wound, the Smith trade gave Seattle the #14 pick the following year, which they used to draft....

Earl Thomas. One of the best young safeties in the NFL.

Eagles released S O.J. Atogwe.

As usual, Atogwe was banged up for the majority of camp and barely practiced. It's a terrible sign that a team starting Kurt Coleman at safety is letting Atogwe go. Look for the Eagles to scour the waiver for safety help this weekend.



8/31/2012 1:53:00 PM et

Eagles waived WR Marvin McNutt, G/C Steve Vallos, S Phillip Thomas and FB Emil Igewanagu.

McNutt's release is a sign that the Eagles are confident in Riley Cooper's (collarbone) status for Week 1. They will roll with Cooper and possibly undrafted rook Damaris Johnson behind Jeremy Maclin, DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant. McNutt is a practice squad candidate.



8/31/2012 1:48:00 PM et

Eagles waived G Brandon Washington.

A sixth-round pick, Washington was considered a project coming out of Miami. An athletic 6-foot-3, 320 pounds, he's a strong candidate for the practice squad.



8/31/2012 1:43:00 PM et

Eagles waived LB Keenan Clayton and TE Chase Ford.

A fourth-round pick in 2010, Clayton ended up appearing in only 21 games in two years, and saw just four defensive snaps in 2011. His fourth-round pedigree could lead to a waiver claim, but Clayton won't be more than a special teamer in 2012.



8/31/2012 1:00:00 PM et

Eagles waived WR Mardy Gilyard.

Gilyard just doesn't have the skills to be anything more than a fringe player. He's 5'11/194 and runs in the 4.5s.



8/31/2012 12:22:00 PM et

Eagles released CB Joselio Hanson.

Hanson, who doesn't play special teams, got beat out by fourth-round rookie Brandon Boykin for the nickel corner job. He'll latch on elsewhere as an inside corner with 104 games of NFL experience.

Love the MLB castoffs from Philly, bring this Greg Jones dude in!!

I'd like to bring him in to return punts. Hester is good for a TD, or two, every year.

Wait.

Jordan Todman released by the Vikings...?

Considering the FO's hard on for Ball, probably a moot point.

They should have never traded Brandon Lloyd. He'd be sick in this year's offense, and he would have resigned to play with Peyton.

Who did Denver get for LLoyd? Was it a 5th round pick? I cannot remember.

christ, how bad was that draft class

Dick Quinn got cut by Washington also. Spectacular trades by McDaniels :patstink:

Another little known Tebow effect!

thread of the offseason right here!!~!

Frank Okam is the type of big bodied DT that JDR likes. Might be a nice pick up.

I did an orangemane search on Okam and he was a huge topic back in the day. Its fun reading some of those old thread seven though I do not know a lot of the posters. I should post some of the threads. entertaining to say the least.

Absolutely this...

Hester is a better blocker, better pass catcher and a more productive special teamer due to being able to return.

There is only 1 good Gronk and I guess we needed to try on the other 2 to make sure

Even if they hadn't traded Lloyd, he still wouldn't be here now.

wasn't possible, at that point we were all in for Tebow and Lloyd wanted a passing QB.

Surprised that Seattle kept all of those RBs. They have 4 that are better than Ball (our #2, DOH!).

5th round pick #137 who coincidentally turned into big #70 Malik Jackson :strong:

If I were John Elway (my first wish when I find that magic lamp, actually!), these are the players that I'd be pursuing today:

Mark LeGree, Safety (cut from Bears)
Jonathan Grimes, RB (cut from Texans)
Matt Reynolds, OT (cut from Panthers)
Danny Coale, WR (cut from Cowboys)
Adrian Hamilton, LB (cut from Cowboys)
Dale Moss, WR (cut from Packers)
Josh Johnson, QB (cut from 49ers)
Cordarro Law, DE (cut from 49ers)
Frank Okam, DT (cut from Buccaneers)
Amobi Okoye, DT (cut from Buccaneers)
Sean Baker, S (cut from Buccaneers)
Ryan Davis, DE (cut from Jaguars)

Ben Garland, a defensive tackle from the Air Force Academy, was signed to the Broncos’ practice squad Saturday. Garland is coming off a two-year military commitment so this is his first NFL season.

Six other players were also signed to the practice squad: Receiver Greg Orton, strong safety Duke Ihenacho, tight end Cornelius Ingram, guard Wayne Tribue, running back Jeremiah Johnson and defensive tackle Sealver Siliga.

The Broncos can add one more to their practice squad. They could be waiting for quarterback Adam Weber to make his decision. Weber has drawn practice-squad interest from other teams.

seriously? Robinson gets no love? that's the one that shocks me the most. unless he drew interest from another team.

I like Danny Coale. I think he could develop into a Stokes-type player. Great hands, but not great size.
