Moreno has blown out his knee twice now on 207 touches. He can't be counted on as a back up. Williams is better then at this point in their careers. There is no team left where Williams would be a clear cut starter, at least in Denver he is with a coach he knows and the primary vet back up on a team that could use him.

Other teams know what we have in KM so there is no trade value for us, if there was any it might have been there last year. Unless someone desperate calls for KM I am guessing he spends as many games inactive as he does active like last year.

He gave us a couple good games in relief last year. I hope we don't need it now with a young MONEYBall to tote the rock. Still his contract ends after this season so might as well pay him not to dress and then let him try to get kFc to sign him next year.

That was before his latest knee problems. I was wrong on the total of touches between knee surgeries. It was only 159 touches and he needed more work to his knee. We can't count on him period. I don't know why you want to keep this turd around when there are better uses of our roster space.

I can't believe that I am defending KM after relentless bashing since his rookie year. I would love to see JJ beat him out of a job but I think the staff knows what he gives them and if he can hang on to a job and sit inactive until needed then fine.

I would not morn the day he was cut believe me!

Director of player personnel Matt Russell says the Broncos liked Alabama RB Eddie Lacy, but "backed off" due to concerns about his 2012 toe injury and "how many years he could play."
Lacy was popularly mocked to the Broncos, but they ended up selecting Wisconsin's Montee Ball before the Packers scooped him at No. 61. Viewed as the No. 1 running back for a majority of the pre-draft process, it's clear teams took Lacy's 2012 toe/foot operation much more seriously than draftniks. Regardless, Lacy claims he's now 100 percent healthy, and should be motivated by his draft tumble. He's landed in an excellent spot.


Broncos executive VP John Elway compares Montee Ball's running style to Terrell Davis'.
"Obviously, that got us real excited," Elway said on a conference call with season-ticket holders. Davis, not coincidentally, is who Ball says he modeled his game after. The former MVP and 2,000-yard club member is a good role model for a running back, but the Broncos have to hope Ball's career trajectory takes a different path than Davis', who carried the ball just 312 times after his age-26 season. It's a legitimate concern that Ball's 983 college touches will lead to a short NFL career.


The Broncos are "confident" they'll reach a long-term agreement with unsigned franchise player LT Ryan Clady.
"We want him here," director of player personnel Matt Russell said. Recovering from shoulder surgery, Clady has yet to sign his one-year, $9.828 million tender. The sides have until July 15 to hammer out a long-term pact.


Executive VP John Elway confirms Robert Ayers will be the Broncos' starting right end.
With the Broncos out of the mix for Dwight Freeney and John Abraham, Ayers will slide into Elvis Dumervil's old spot after Shaun Phillips was signed to be a nickel rusher. Ayers should cede snaps to Phillips on passing downs

Titus Young - WR - Free Agent

Free agent WR Titus Young was arrested twice in 15 hours last Sunday.
The troubled ex-Lion was busted for drunk driving at 12:01 Sunday morning in Moreno Valley, Cal. He was then arrested again 15 hours later after he was caught trying to steal his impounded Mustang from a tow-company lot. It's the exact kind of confounding, short-sighted behavior that earned Young his walking papers from the Lions less than two years after he was a second-round pick. Young needs to get serious help before his life spirals completely out of control

Ronde Barber - DB - Buccaneers

Ronde Barber has decided to retire.
"I've had a better run than I ever could've dreamed," Barber told FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. One of the longest tenured players in the NFL, Barber is hanging it up after 16 seasons. A three-time All Pro, Barber helped the Bucs to Super Bowl XXXVII win, and holds the record for most consecutive starts by a defensive back (215). Barber showed well as a safety last season, but would have returned as a reserve after the Bucs added Dashon Goldson and Johnthan Banks. Barber should be enshrined in the Bucs' Ring of Honor, but his Hall-of-Fame candidacy is harder to quantify. He benefited from playing for an all-time great defense during his prime, and wasn't an elite player the second half of his career. If not for his durability and longevity, Barber would be a borderline, at best, candidate for Canton. Those qualities are likely to put him over the top, however.

More drama in Jets qb camp:

Here we go again.

The circus-like atmosphere surrounding the Jets’ quarterback position is getting a little bit crazier, with a report out today that David Garrard, who was brought in to provide some veteran leadership and stability, has told teammates today that he is planning to leave the team.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Garrard told two teammates he no longer plans to be with the Jets. It is unclear whether that’s because he plans to retire, if he’s been told he’s getting cut, or if something else has happened. According to the Jets, Garrard is still on the roster.

Asked about the story, Garrard told NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington:,”I’m not talking about that right now. Maybe tomorrow or the next day.”

What you're saying about Vick is true, but he was never that good throwing the ball in Atlanta.

He didnt develop any of those QBs. What he did was mask how bad they were and teams like Miami and Arizona were duped. Maybe he will mask Alex smith like Harbaugh did, and unless you have a Super Bowl roster that's not gonna get it done.

That doesn't mean Reid didn't have a hand in their development, but people looking at a kid and then saying "they have horrible parents. It's all their fault" is total BS. We have no idea how the Reid family was or what kind of parents they were to their kids. I've met some really cool people with terrible parents. I've met some amazing parents with horrible kids. People ultimately are responsible for their own actions.

that's because in general people believe that a person will follow what their parents taught them in times of trouble.
or basically, if the parent taught them right they wouldn't do this because they'd know it was wrong.

that's true in some situations but without knowing the whole scenario it's hard to say it's someone's fault other than that person.
the person makes their own choices regardless of it being a good idea or not.
not everyone has the same moral compass on right, wrong, acceptable or unacceptable.

Jason Avant - WR - Eagles

The Eagles have been working WR Jason Avant at defensive back.
Coach Chip Kelly is certainly putting his stamp on the team. We already mentioned how TE Clay Harbor was dabbling at outside linebacker. Avant set a career-high with 53 catches last season, but he's nothing more than a middling slot talent with no big-play ability. The Eagles traded for Arrelious Benn, and Avant might be on the outside looking in at the 53-man roster.

I'm still holding out hope we can send them Tony Carter for something.

Who did he turn into a great QB? McNabb would of been fine with anyone and the rest were mediocre to garbage.

McNabb is the only real talent he's had to work with, but his work has been impressive.

Jeff Garcia looked fantastic and led them to the playoffs when McNabb got hurt, Kolb looked so good that a team gave up a 2nd and a starting CB for him and he made Vick look like a respectable passer.

I think Alex Smith will be a big test for him though. This will prove his reputation.

You don't have to be abusive or a drug using parent to have your kids turn out bad. The worst thing a parent can do is not spend quality time with their kids....as in being too busy to show them the right path. Being a head coach in the NFL could certainly make a man too busy.

Andy Reid is a decent coach. But he owes a lot of his success to the late Jim Johnson. And he lost two NFC Championship Games as a home favorite (once to the John Fox coached Carolina Panthers), and lost another (to Arizona) that many think they should have won. His act got stale in Philly and the fans were long past ready to move on. It wasn't working any more. Will be interesting to see if he can make it work again somewhere else.

Andry Reid is an NFL Head Coach and thus did not spend enough time with his family. All NFL Coaches are awful in this regard, and if they aren't, then they are bad coaches and are fired quickly.

Reid's son died of a heroin overdose. Both of his sons were in prison. Previous to that they were living in his house with weapons and a lot of pills. He had younger children living in the house.

He also probably allowed all of them to watch both Ghostbusters movies while he was at the Eagles complex breaking down Koy Detmer tapes. Guess I should have used the standard obese man joke. No offense!

How much did he pay attention with Vick? It's the little things that kill.
I saw this on Twitter:

“So I showed him how I was running with it, and he looked at it and he knocked the ball right out of my hands. And he was like, ‘Hold it like this.’ And what he told me felt comfortable. I had a tighter grip on the football. That should secure that problem as long as I work on it.” -Michael Vick

Perhaps we should ask Keenan Allen. The rookie wide receiver -- a third-round choice by the San Diego Chargers -- recently posted a Vine video of himself sipping on a beverage while wearing a black Oakland Raiders cap.

The Chargers and Raiders are rivals, of course, going all the way back to their days together in the hardscrabble AFL.

Allen removed the video following an avalanche of criticism. The inevitable mea culpa soon followed.

The Philadelphia Inquirer calls OLB Trent Cole a "fish out of water" in the Eagles' new 3-4 defense.
If it wasn't for Cole's enormous contract that he signed last March, then he'd already be gone. Cole has never played outside linebacker, and it's proving to be a chore for him to learn the nuances of the position. The Eagles are trying to force a square peg into a round hole with Cole, but they'd be charged with nearly $10 million in dead money if they were to cut him.

I still wish we could figure out a way to land him.

Unless I'm missing something that defense is probably going to be awful. Their DB situation is pretty bad, and I'm not sure they have the front 7 talent to run the 3-4.

This is what TC is for, if Bolden and Webster can beat out Tony Carter then fine but you don't move or cut good depth for 2 guys who haven't shown anything on the field yet.

Carter is fighting for at best the dime cornerback. Smith or Cole would be fighting for the starting RDE spot. You make the move to get a starter out of a limited time player. Any other roster Carter would be playing more hence he would have more value to another team.

IDK, Fox and JDR seem to like to rotate guys in a lot. Plus I really think all DRC has on Carter is size. At this point I think Carter is the better cover DB with DRC maybe being the better Zone CB.

I don't agree with the rotate players in the secondary. The only reason Carter got his job back is because Porter hurt his head again. Carter is solid, but I watched bigger WR's eat him up. Like Alexander for the Chargers.

While I don't agree with everything they say, this is a good write up of what we are getting in DRC. With Harris going inside we are in position to have 3 damn good DBs on the field at once. We would be much better with Bolden/Webster at the 4 CB and Cole or Smith at starting RDE then we would with Carter at 4 and Ayers/Phillips at RDE.

We would have a rotation of (Smith or Cole), Ayers and Phillips. Also Phillips would more as back up Miller as well as giving us protection if Phillips can't produce as a DE in the 4-3. That would give us a very good mix of players for the front 4 IMO.

Will Smith - DL - Saints

Will Smith was running with the Saints' first-team defense at outside linebacker in OTAs this week.
Smith and Martez Wilson were with the ones, while Junior Galette and Victor Butler were with the twos. As we pointed out days ago, this attempt by the Saints to move 6-foot-3, 282-pound Smith to stand-up edge rusher is quite comical. Galette and Butler are younger and much more talented at this stage of their respective careers. Smith, due $3 million, is a candidate to be released.

He would be cheaper then Cole.

It would kickass if they could land Smith

Daryl Smith - LB - Ravens

Ravens agreed to terms with LB Daryl Smith, formerly of the Jaguars.
It's a low-risk, high-upside signing for GM Ozzie Newsome as he looks to replace Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe. A groin injury limited Smith to just two games last season, but the Jaguars' all-time leading tackler was still highly effective in 2011. He's undoubtedly on the downside of his career, but should go a long way toward fortifying the Ravens' inside linebacker corps as long as he's healthy. After being panned in the early days of free agency, the Ravens are arguably more talented now than they were in 2012.

And before that Scott Mcloughan and Nolan's handprints were all over that roster. Had Scott not been a drunken mess he may have kept his job.

You'd get a beatdown talkin like this in a mission district bar. There was so much wrong with Singletary that people around here had McDaniels type hate. There's plenty of reasons why he got booed in candlestick when the Vikings came to town.


I agree with John Madden on his assessment about Singletary. You can scream and yell all you want but at the end of the day if you aren't coaching/encouraging all you're doing is yelling. Sure some guys (Davis) credit that to getting them right in the head. But at the same time you have to coach and Singletary didnt do that. He laid blame of losses on the players way too much. While making zero adjustments during a game.

Singletary refused to take blame for anything. Things that a head coach should take blame for. Like making adjustments in the game or getting plays in on time. He got Dennis odonnell fired for simply asking questions that a coach should answer. He was a pompous ass and is the reason coaches around the league did not want to be on his staff.

Trestman is making some great moves, Carimi would have likely been cut after TC he is so bad.

The Raiders should sign Leach. Go power running with mcFadden. Leach is just the sort of thumper he needs to get enough room to be effective and get to 1200 yrds or more a season again.

He wants to go back to Houston.

Ed Reed cites Brady kick for injury.

Houston Texans safety Ed Reed, who is still rehabbing from offseason hip surgery, indicated that the injury originally occurred when Patriots quarterback Tom Brady kicked him in the AFC championship game.

"The only play I could look at is when I got kicked by a certain quarterback," Reed said Tuesday at Texans minicamp. "But even then, I played in the Super Bowl and you saw what happened there."

Reed acknowledged he isn't sure if he'll be ready to play for the Texans in the season opener on Sept. 9. The nine-time Pro Bowler, who had surgery April 30 for a partly torn labrum, said he didn't find out he needed surgery until after joining the Texans from the Super Bowl-winning Baltimore Ravens.

"If you ask my trainer and ask my doctor, they can't believe where I'm at now," Reed said. "It's still a process. We want to be smart through it.

"At the end of the day, the smartest thing is to be ready when it really counts -- and that's the latter part of the season when you're making that run to the playoffs and on to the Super Bowl."

Reed, who was in Houston for the start of the Texans' three-day minicamp, said he hasn't had any setbacks, and he'll have a better idea of when he might play when training camp begins in late July.

Kayvon Webster - DB - Broncos

Broncos signed third-round CB Kayvon Webster to a four-year contract.
Webster (5-foot-10 1/2, 195) started 32 games at South Florida, notching three interceptions and four forced fumbles. He's classified as a good "character guy," and he'll likely see most of his rookie-year action on special teams.
Jun 13 - 4:08 PM


Montee Ball - RB - Broncos

Broncos signed second-round RB Montee Ball to a four-year contract.
Ball, the No. 58 overall pick, scored an NCAA record 83 all-purpose touchdowns at Wisconsin. He has a lot of miles on his tires, but coach John Fox insists that the team isn't concerned about that one bit. Following the release of Willis McGahee on Thursday, Ball is in the driver's seat for lead-back duties. He's a perfect for for the Broncos' scheme and has RB1 upside.

Ryan Clady - T - Broncos

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports there is "some sense" the Broncos and unsigned franchise player LT Ryan Clady will hammer out a long-term deal before next month's deadline.
La Canfora expects talks to come down to the July 15 deadline, but believes the Broncos are "edging closer to reality on what the cost will be." Clady is believed to be seeking Joe Thomas or Jason Peters money, which would put him in the neighborhood of $35-$45 million guaranteed. The Broncos would be wise not to upset the man tasked with protecting Peyton Manning's blindside.

Von Miller - LB - Broncos

Von Miller will get a head start on training camp by reporting to the Broncos' Dove Valley facility in early July.
Broncos training camp doesn't start until July 25. "It's just a choice," explained Miller. "It's all part of trying to be the best linebacker I can be and making plays for the defense." Following an 11.5-sack rookie season, Miller leaped to 18.5 sacks and six forced fumbles as a sophomore. Still only 24 years old, Miller has bypassed DeMarcus Ware as the NFL's premier edge pass rusher.

A fourth-round pick in 2012, Bolden was limited to special teams and appeared in just seven games as a rookie. The Broncos are expected to give him an expanded role as their No. 3 corner this season. Quinten Jammer, Tony Carter and third-round pick Kayvon Webster will also see playing time in sub-defenses.

They are pumping him up for TC, he either steps up or ends up getting cut. He is above avg on ST's though.

I think Harris will play alot of #2 and will move to slot in nickel.

We have 3 very good Man DB's (Champ, DRC, T. Carter) and Harris is better in zone than DRC and Carter so I am guessing he moves to slot in Nickle.

That is fair, with the log jam we have in the secondary though someone is going to have to go.

Elway said great things about KM before the season started last year only to have him inactive for the 1st half until Willis went down...

Moreno was still slightly recovering during that time and the staff didn't have full confidence in him and had a better option in Willis at the time.

Elway didn't draft Moreno. the staff didn't pick him and he's still on the team even with his injuries because he's valuable.

if anyone goes it will likely be Carter.
