No it just means they are going to do it right. Draft to fix the front 7.

I'm surprised we're not looking at McAlister or Rolle for CB depth. Maybe waiting for the price to come down, they are probably both over valuing themselves.

I hope the players that they want fall to them.

Comment: Young has served as a backup guard over the last three years in Philadelphia. He is a strong player who converted to the offensive line prior to his senior season in college at BYU. He has some size with above-average athletic skills for the position. He is still somewhat raw in his development and technique as both a run-blocker and pass-blocker. He has decent lateral slide and agility, while matching up versus speedy upfield rushers. Young doesn't have a lot of anchor and can be overpowered versus power rushers. Overall, he is still a young, developing player who continues to need reps and playing time at this stage of his development.

Oh hell yea! This is the signing that I've been asking for since FA started. Now I could care less if Cutler is traded, Marshall is suspended, we don't fix the D, and so on.

Hmmm. His name is Young and he was born in Salt Lake and he went to BYU. Any Kaylore/Mormon insider info on this guy? Related to Steve, and a descendant of Brigham, perhaps?

The Broncos on Friday added offensive lineman Scott Young to their roster, signing the free-agent guard to a contract, the team said.
Young, a fifth-year pro who played last season with Cleveland and Philadelphia, has played in 14 career games and never started.
The 6-foot-4, 312 pounds lineman entered the NFL in 2005, as a fifth-round draft choice of the Eagles.
Young played collegiately at Brigham Young for two seasons. He didn't start as an offensive lineman until his senior season, when he switched from defensive line.


could they be looking at him for D-line hmmm...

Young to compete for starting spot

The Denver Broncos (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=den) brought in more competition for coach Josh McDaniel's first training camp by signing Browns backup guard Scott Young (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8586) Friday.
Terms of the deal weren't immediately available. Young becomes the 14th offseason signing for the Broncos, but he is the first addition to the offensive line.
Young, 27, was a fifth-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=phi) in 2005. He spent three seasons with the Eagles and the past two with the Browns. He's played in 14 games in four seasons, but has never started.

Perhaps McTard thinks our O-Line needs to be completely redone as well.

No, just trying to throw out all the standard cliches .....

He might be a decent backup ... but then again we though the same thing about Dylan Gandy a year ago.


I wish we still has Chris Myers :(

Perhaps he is bringing in depth and competition. Perhaps he is going to focus the draft on the defense. Perhaps you're an UberTard?:sunshine:

"Young wowed observers during the 2005 NFL Scouting Combine when he bench pressed 225 pounds an astounding 43 times, just two shy of the combine record."

Isn't that the concept -- that everyone competes for a starting job? It may well be a stretch, but they should all be competing for a starting job.

And yet so many here are willing to believe their "THE DEAL IS DONE!" level of reporting over Adam Shefter when it pertains to the Jay Cutler drama.

Young sounds like a physically gifted player who could just use some high level coaching. Maybe Dennison just got a project he's had his eye on for a little while now?

At this point, the guy is just a camp body and nothing to get excited about.

He'll come in and compete. For a starting job? Well that's a high standard considering we have one of the best lines in football again. (It's nice to say that!) but every player should be "competing for a starting job" and then they will be filled in accoridingly. Worst case is he's cut. Best case is he's an upgrade over the starters we have, though that's almost impossible for a journeyman of his caliber. If he makes it as depth, I'll be happy.

What ever could've lead you to believe that I didn't?

ESPN sucks at what they claim to do, report on sporting news. They're real good at making entertainment fluff pieces and throwing out conjecture, but their idea of breaking a story is slightly rewording a rumor some legitimate reporter actually already broke.

This is just another example, in which they think a young unpolished kid like this could challenge either Hamilton or Kuper (both played at near pro-bowl levels last year). But the Jay Cutler story is their latest sounding board du jour at which to throw feces in hopes that something might sort of stick a little so they can scream "we told you so!" when they're even 1% right.
