I wouldn't count them going after RGIII out either. Elway was pretty enamored with him, he knows Shanahan/Kubiak's offense, was successful in it, and has been handed quite a few doses of humility since.

I'm not saying I'd do it, but I wouldn't be shocked if Elway did. They may view separating him and Snyder as just what the Dr ordered.

Though Kubiak would probably rather not after Mike's experience with Robert as a person.

I just talked myself full circle...

RGIII burnt his bridge with Shanny and I don't see either Elway or Kubiak touching him.

Oh Hell NO!!!!!!!!!!

to RGIII? call me crazy, but I think he'd be fine in Kube's O. Would rather Denver started him in a year than the latest Baylor QB.

When was the last time ANYONE had sustained success in Washington? Champ Bailey? And even he wanted out and said Washington ran their org like a fantasy team. I wouldn't give up on RGIII just yet.

Maybe he has some growing up to do (show me a guy his age who doesn't), but the skills are there. The Shanahan/RGIII rift is probably a big red flag for Denver, but I'd be alright with Denver picking him up once the "Let's get Manning his regular-season records and maaaaaaaaaybe make a run" season is up.

Pass on RG III....those little pretzel twig legs look like they are ready to get blown to bits again every time I see him play.

He always looks like he's one play away from having a permanent metal rod inserted to keep his foot attached to one of his twigs.

Because QBs are known for having massive legs? Brady's legs look tiny too. I think RGIII would be fine in a system that kept him under control. There's a reason teams don't run the option as much as Wash did RGIII's rookie year.

I think this is a moot issue, though, as I think the Kubes-Shanahan connection is too tight for Denver to make a serious commitment to RGIII. I think it would be better than any of the QBs Denver has a shot at this year though

No....it's because RG III's legs are the consistency of stale peanut brittle.

Every time he takes of running I expect to see a piece of his lower appendage explode into the air in a bloody mist, while separating itself from the rest of his body.

Nope, Weddle is upset that he hasnt been offered an extention yet. Says he wants to retire a Charger but he has been there long enough to know they dont do extensions till other priority things are done. Not like he is a FA right now. Telesco said he will get to him.

Telesco hasnt offered an extension to Rivers yet, he just said earlier in the year that he wants to.

As for LT, he hasnt talked to Rivers so it means nothing. If he feels that way, i wonder why he was upset that AJ released him? Fitting.

We can argue all day but im not worried about where Rivers will be. You can choose to believe the Media who has no insight or info from our front office. Im giving you the front offices comments on it.

Actually the Chargers have approached Rivers about a contract extension but Rivers told them that he doesn't want to do it yet (not until there's more clarity with the LA situation). I think there may be some merit to that but I think, believe it or not even with Philip, it's mainly about money.

None of this changes the fact that Rivers does not want to play for the Chargers and wants out. Just because you claim Telesco has not yet contacted Rivers about a new contract does not change the fact that Rivers has not knocked on Tom's door and said "hey, let's get this done."

Now is the perfect time for Rivers to be traded. If he does get traded I'm predicting it will be to TN. If he doesn't get traded to TN them I speculate that yes, indeed, he probably will re-up with SD.

He's not getting traded. McCoy and Telesco are also in their last year of their contract. They're not going to go 2-14 with a rookie quarterback with their jobs on the line.

And it makes no sense for either team. The Titans are in rebuild mode and trading away picks for a 30+ quarterback makes no sense. And the Chargers are in win now mode and trading away a franchise QB (no matter what mode you're in) is just plain stupidity.

Also, Rivers essentially has a no-trade clause since no team is going to give the value that the Chargers would want for him without negotiating a contract extension with a new team. He has said he wants to play here in 2015 and it would make no sense for him to want to go to a team as bad as Tennessee at this point in his career.

But it's Rivers who is holding back from a new contract. So, if SD does not trade Rivers and Rivers does not sign a new contract then he'll play out his last year with no new contract? Um, that never happens, not unless you are on your rookie deal.

Nah, something just ain't right. Eveyone is saying Rivers wants to stay, and Telesco wants him to stay, blah, blah, blah. Yet, no new contract?

One of the most well-respected sports publications of all-time thinks that Heisman Trophy winner, former Oregon quarterback, Marcus Mariota is headed to the San Diego Chargers — and you can probably guess how the Bolts would get him.
Yes — it would be in the No. 2 slot, in a projected trade with the Tennessee Titans involving Philip Rivers and the Chargers No. 17 pick.

First of all, LA is about 4-5 hours from SD on a bad day. Trust me.

LA has some nice areas but those are few (and extremely expensive) and far from any proposed stadium, especially ones involving the Chargers. Even Kobe, has to be helicoptered into Staples Center from where he lives.

Maybe I'm just getting older, but if you asked me 5-10 years ago which city I'd rather live in, it would be LA because of all the sports and there's more going on downtown than in SD. Now I'm picking SD, because it's much nicer, cleaner, less a**holes, more outdoor stuff to do, less traffic, and I could go on.

Chargers, Titans haven't talked Rivers trade

By Michael Gehlken 8:30 A.M.APRIL 23, 2015

A blockbuster trade that'd arguably be the most complex in Chargers history is nowhere close to coming to fruition.

Speculation has mounted the Chargers could trade quarterback Philip Rivers to the Titans, who own the No. 2 overall pick, possibly to acquire former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. A Chargers team source said Thursday morning, one week before draft day, that San Diego has not discussed a Rivers trade "at all" with Tennessee. There has been no contact between the two sides.

A measure of caution.

Developments in this league can happen in an instant.

But nonetheless, silence may be telling for two parties with certainly a lot to figure out for rumor to become reality. Namely, the Chargers and Titans not only would need to reach compensation in a rare deal that sends a proven franchise quarterback for the unproven possibility of another. It seems likely the Titans also would need to have meaningful contract discussions with Rivers.

Rivers, 33, is entering the final year in his contract.

Any team that'd acquire him, sending valuable compensation in a trade, first would need assurance he was part of its long-term future.

The Chargers hope Rivers is part of theirs.

They have broached contract-extension talks with the nine-time captain, although at this point to no avail. General Manager Tom Telesco addressed Rivers' future at length Wednesday during his annual pre-draft press conference. Repeatedly, he made clear the team hopes to retain Rivers.

"Philip's our quarterback, and the plan is he'll be here for a long, long, long time," Telesco said.

The Chargers began voluntary workouts this week.

Rivers not only reported Monday but worked to scheduled a Tuesday throwing session with teammates, wide receiver Stevie Johnson said, in an effort to build chemistry toward the upcoming year.

"It's our plan and intent that he's our quarterback well into the future," Telesco said. "In all my discussions with him, he's shown a great amount of respect for his teammates and a great amount of respect for this organization. He's been here every day, working extremely hard, being the leader that he is that we've all come to know. I know he's really excited about this season as are we."

They both signed 4 year deals so thats not accurate. This is their third season together but i do agree that Rivers isnt going to get traded.

And they never offered Rivers a contract, they said they would like to extend him, so yes. Agree there.

I think Mike Florio's credibility is barely a step above Bleacher Report but he did come up with an interesting point the other day. He thinks that this is a move by River's agent because the value of Rivers as the SD Chargers quarterback and the LA Chargers quarterback would be different. If the team is going to supposedly double in value by going to LA, then his client should be rewarded more as the LA Chargers quarterback.

99% of the time, it simply comes down to money and though Rivers doesn't seem like the kind of guy that would be heavily concerned about it, money is what these guys are putting their bodies on the line for.

This is being discussed in Philly as one of the reasons they may consider keeping Tebow. And I'm not kidding.

And there is something to the speculation that Chip Kelly may have interest in Tebow as a two-point conversion specialist. The NFL is expected to vote on changes to the point-after-touchdown rules, perhaps making the two-point conversion more common.http://www.espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/12748308/tim-tebow-improved-philadelphia-eagles-executive-ed-marynowitz-says

Chip Kelly puts more emphasis on special teams than probably any other coach in the league. They have multiple players signed either exclusively or almost exclusively for their ST ability. Tebow is signed to a minimum contract so it wouldn't be all that crazy for that team, especially if he could also be the #3 QB.

We've heard the great deal of improvement since his 1st offseason as a bronco. If what Jay Feely says is correct, it's no wonder why he can't beat out jet 3rd stringers. he's got 3 QBs ahead of him right now. I'm willing to bet he doesn't beat out at least 2 of them(barring QB injuries).

Its clear you need a special QB to go anywhere in the post season and Chip thinks he's the guy in this draft.

I'm not sure Mariota is the guy but looks like Chip wants to go all in.

1) The Chargers have a better chance to move to Syria than to Carson. Nothing is getting built on that toxic landfill in an environmental crazy state like California. Kroenke is going to be the one to move and the NFL has said there won't be two stadiums in LA. Kroenke has the money to do it. The Chargers and Raiders combined don't.

2) Rivers has no trade value with only one year left on his contract. And if the Chargers really wanted Mariota, they'd have to do a draft day deal with a new contract for Rivers (they're not going to trade him pre-draft because Tampa Bay could take Mariota). And they're not going to approach Rivers with a trade beforehand in case Tampa does pick Mariota, then you're stuck with a disgruntled Rivers and no quarterback to trade him for.

The only real difference between trading Rivers and trading MK is that M. Kendricks is on still on his rookie contract so any team that trades for him will be able to franchise tag him if they want to, thus making Kendricks a two year player (if a team doesn't extend him immediately).

Not so sure Winston is the unanimous pick over Mariota.

Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel surveyed 19 scouts on the NFL prospects of the draft’s top quarterbacks, and they like Marcus Mariota’s chances to succeed a little better than they like Jameis Winston’s. They peg Winston as being about as likely to wash out as to become a competent NFL quarterback, and a handful of the scouts believe Winston has the potential to become an all-time bust.

Specifics on the poll:

All-time great: Mariota one vote, Winston none.

At least one Pro Bowl: Mariota eight, Winston six.

Average starter: Mariota eight, Winston five.

Disappointment: Mariota one, Winston four.

Mariota is smart, well composed, super-accurate, tall, and fast as $hit. 42 TD's and 4 INT's as a Senior, with similar numbers the rest of his college career. If the Chargers get him, they'll be really good for a long time. Mariota could compete with the Andrew Luck or Russell Wilson right out the gate.

The thing about Winston is he's kind of a soft body, and doesn't really have a cannon for an arm. I think below average arm by NFL standards.

His best thing is that he is decisive in getting rid of the ball. But prone to bad decisions.

He can put it where it wants it pretty well.

He just screams average to me, and when you have questions about his character, those add up to "pass" for the very top of the draft.

Whereas Mariota seems more like a "how good might he be" type. Stats off the chart and that speed.

The National Football League’s central office will become a taxable entity, ending its tax-exempt status.

Commissioner Roger Goodell informed team owners and members of Congress of the decision in letters dated Tuesday, saying he was eliminating a “distraction.”

“Every dollar of income generated through television rights fees, licensing agreements, sponsorships, ticket sales, and other means is earned by the 32 clubs and is taxable there,” Goodell wrote. “This will remain the case even when the league office and Management Council file returns as taxable entities, and the change in filing status will make no material difference to our business.”

The Cleveland Browns have discussed trading with the Tennessee Titans to move up to the second spot in the NFL draft so the Browns can take quarterback Marcus Mariota, a source familiar with the discussions said Wednesday.

The Browns, according to the source, made an offer to the Titans that includes the team's two first-round picks -- 12th and 19th overall.http://espn.go.com/nfl/draft2015/story/_/id/12786057/cleveland-browns-discussed-trade-tennessee-titans-no-2-pick-nfl-draft

They said Russell Wilson would have been a top pick if he were 6-4. Well I believe Mariota is a 6'4 version of Russell Wilson as long as they incoprparate some of the offense he ran at Oregon. Wilson is great at running the read option and not taking hits. That will be key. Can Marcus be more Wilson than RGIII .

He had a productive rookie season and third season, I am guessing 2013 was missed mostly due to injury. My guess is Denver likes their ILB corp, but he definitely has some size. Don't know if we would bring him in. I was almost certain we would get an ILB, but the team must like the depth they have (McCray, Barrett, Johnson, Nelson, Barrow, Davis) and willing to bet on their youth and development of younger players they had signed or brought in.

Former Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis has agreed to a one-year deal with the New England Patriots, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Fred Davis has not played in the NFL since the 2013 season due to a suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Davis joined the Patriots on Monday, four days after being reinstated by the NFL from an indefinite suspension for a second violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

http://deadspin.com/chris-christie-used-tax-dollars-to-buy-so-much-damn-foo-1703619147

Christie’s most notable spending spree occurred during the 2010 and 2011 NFL football seasons at MetLife Stadium, where the New York’s Giants and Jets play their home games. New Jersey’s governor traditionally enjoys free use of luxury boxes for games and other events at the government-owned venue, but food and beverages cost extra.

On 58 occasions, Christie used a debit card to pay a total of $82,594 to Delaware North Sportservice, which operates the concessions at MetLife. The governor’s office did not provide any receipts, business reasons or names of individuals entertained, but defended the expense.

$82K/58 = $1425 per transaction (roughly) or $2580 per game (32 home games between Jets & Giants)

That's like one beer a game!

Seriously, it doesn't seem all that outrageous given that it's outrageous that the government gets a free box at the stadium already. I mean, it's a waste of taxpayer money for sure, but how much went to his security detail?

Little known Peyton Manning effect.

A 2nd round pick gone before 3 seasons with the team? Damn. That was like when the Bears cut their 3rd round pick before the final roster cut down years ago.

The Broncos have been awarded tight end Marcel Jensen (http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/J/JensMa01.htm?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker-pfr.traderumors.com) off waivers from the Jaguars, a source tells Mike Klis of 9News (via Twitter (https://twitter.com/MikeKlis/status/598234510539522048)). Denver has been on the lookout for a tight end after rookie tight end Jeff Heuerman tore his ACL, ruling him out for the season.

I agree that Jameis has been a stain on FSU. But Bowden had more than his fair share of knuckleheads while coach at FSU.

The Baltimore Ravens reached a three-year agreement with cornerback Kyle Arrington on Wednesday night.

The deal, which is pending a physical, is worth $7 million over three years with a $2 million signing bonus, a league source tells ESPN's Adam Caplan.

The Ravens addressed their biggest need with the best free-agent cornerback available. Arrington became the Ravens' top target after he was surprisingly released by the New England Patriots on Monday.http://espn.go.com/boston/nfl/story/_/id/12881574/baltimore-ravens-agree-three-year-deal-former-new-england-patriots-cb-kyle-arrington

Russell Wilson keeps subtweeting the Seahawks

Last week, Ryan Glasspiegel of TheBigLead.com asked whether Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/7460/russell-wilson) has developed a habit of subtweeting management (http://thebiglead.com/2015/05/05/is-russell-wilson-sub-tweeting-seahawks-brass-or-is-he-just-weird/) in connection with his contract talks. Here’s the tweet that sparked that hypothesis: “Just bc some people want you to slow down & not dream big doesn’t mean u should decrease ur Volume & Relentless Ambition.”

Here’s Wilson’s latest, from earlier today: “Always control what you can control. Never let others nonsense & lack of gratefulness & respect (https://twitter.com/DangeRussWilson/status/598913500757364736) bring you down. #BestIsAhead.”

It’s hard not to wonder whether this relates to Wilson’s slowly ongoing negotiations with the Seahawks, especially since his first apparent subtweet came just after coach Pete Carroll told ESPN that the ball is in Wilson’s court (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/05/03/carroll-says-ball-currently-is-in-wilsons-court/): “I’d rather patiently wait & see what God has in store than do something that isn’t best for my life (https://twitter.com/DangeRussWilson/status/594597035149398016).”

WTF is a subtweet?

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Subtweet

A tweet (message posted on the website Twitter) that mentions a Twitter member without using their actual username. Usually employed for negative or insulting tweets; the person you're mentioning won't see the subtweet in their Twitter timeline as it doesn't contain the @ symbol that every Twitter username has.
Someone wants to criticize a person with the username @JohnDoe on Twitter but without that person seeing the tweet in their Twitter timeline. Instead of tweeting "I think @JohnDoe is an idiot" they would subtweet "I think JohnDoe is an idiot" or "I think John Doe is an idiot". In each case the @ symbol is missing so the tweet would not appear in @JohnDoe 's Twitter timeline.

Similar to this. I think that poster with Manning and Elway as his avatar has a severe lack of twitter knowledge.
I just named you, without directly naming you.

No, I didn't mean that post to sound mean or anything. Just using you as a example. Especially since I do not use social media.

Supposedly Quinn is a big fan of his and the Falcons D is still porous despite the additions this off-season.
