Figured most of yall will be scouring the internet for Broncos FA updates. So why not just put them all in one place.

Only thing I have found so far...

Ravens' FA defensive lineman Justin Bannan to visit Broncos, hearing they are setting something up with Dwan Edwards, too, per a source

Bannan and Edwards would be nice signings. I don't see either as a top-tier DL but they'd be upgrades over Peterson and McBean.

Denver Broncos show interest in Browns C Rex Hadnot

<!-- Start LeftColumn -->03/04/10; 10:30 p.m. MST

Nine days after the Denver Broncos released veteran center Casey Wiegmann, the organization has begun searching for a replacement in earnest.

Sources told Fox31’s Josina Anderson late Thursday night that the Broncos have shown considerable interest in Cleveland Browns center, and unrestricted free agent Rex Hadnot.

Anderson learned that Hadnot may visit Dove Valley, however his possible trip is dependant upon the result of bidding negotiations for his services at this hour.

Hadnot, 28, is a seven-year veteran that signed with the Browns in 2008.

Last season Hadnot played in nine games and started in six of them. He was inactive for a total of seven games after sustaining a knee injury in training camp.

Hadnot was part of a Browns offensive line that led a running game which averaged 4.2 yards per carry last year.

The 6’2, 320 pound lineman was originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the 6<SUP>th</SUP> round of the 2004 NFL draft.

He was selected 174<SUP>th</SUP> overall out of Houston.

Agreed. Bannan went to college at CU. Hopefully he wants to get back to that Colorado mountain living.

Good rotational guys on the DL. Each had great metrics in run defense this past year. Certainly an upgrade in comparison to what we have. Still would want more players.

So much for the Broncos taking it slowly this year in FA. Looks like it could be similar to last year, with a ton of 2nd and 3rd tier guys being brought in quickly. Pashos would be nice insurance in case Harris gets hurt again.

"The Broncos have set up Friday free agent visits for OT Tony Pashos and CB Nathan Jones.
Jones is a nickel back/special teamer. The Broncos' nickel coverage was atrocious all last season; they were forced to sign Ty Law off the street late in the year. Pashos has only played right tackle in his career, and Denver has Ryan Harris in place there. Perhaps they're viewing Pashos as a guard."

"Free agent G/C Rex Hadnot has set up a visit with the Broncos on Friday.
At 6'2/320, Hadnot fits Josh McDaniels' new power scheme. While he's not a special talent, Hadnot would make for a serviceable fill-in at center with the Broncos likely trying Seth Olsen at left guard"

"Free agent DE Jason Babin is reportedly drawing interest from the Jaguars, Redskins, and Broncos.
Babin nearly falls out of the league on an annual basis and turns 30 in May, so it's a surprise to see that he has a market so early in the free agency period. He had 2.5 sacks last year. The Redskins, always willing to overpay, seem like a match made in heaven for the 2004 first-round pick."

"The Broncos have set up a visit with free agent DT Justin Bannan.
Fellow Ravens free agent DT Dwan Edwards is also being recruited by the Broncos, as they attempt to bolster their defensive front. Bannan, a rotational lineman, played well in Kelly Gregg's nose tackle spot in 2008."

"According to the Denver Post, "word is" the Chargers fully intend to re-sign NT Jamal Williams despite releasing him Thursday afternoon.
Denver looked like a possible landing spot if Williams was going to test the market due to the presence of ex-Chargers DL coach Wayne Nunnelly. The Chargers, though, are expected to retain Williams for a lesser salary than the $5 million he was due. Williams likely has something left, so it appears to be a smart and cost-effective move by Bolts GM A.J. Smith."

We desperately need help at DE, bringing in some FA's for that spot is an absolute must. Guys like Edwards and Bannon aren't going to break the bank and would be significant upgrades over the guys we have on our roster right now. Both have played 3-4 DE in a system which likely will be similar to what we're going to run next year, so they're good fits for what we want to do.

Long term I would agree that you need to build through the draft, but drafting guys that are ready to start at DE in a 3-4 is pretty much unheard of, and throwing guys in there who aren't ready to start to get reps will do them more damage that good.

They were. Our 2nd most productive receiver - 2nd most productive RB - 2nd and 3rd defensive player in tackles - our team leader in INTs -

Yeah they were pretty productive. The FA can be a crucial period for some teams to sign some SOLID players who can be productive. I hope we see a big leaps from our rookie class from last year.

If we can get some more key role players in FA it would be great. :thumbsup:

I'm surprised and not surprised that people are already criticizing this organization for who we're looking at. The haters will hate, but for those who are really concerned, consider that this is the one area our FO hit home runs last offseason. Their ability to find low-cost, middle-tier talent and get them to play over their heads was outstanding and were it not for the Cutler fiasco would have gotten more play around the league.

They ranked the top ten free agent signings from '09 a few a days ago on NFL network and we had three on the list. These guys are low-cost and high reward because we'll give them specific roles in our system where they can do a few things often and excel. Even the most ardent McDaniels haters will have to concede that this is one area McDaniels has shown to be more than competent.

Aside from the idiots who always claim that everybody is hating and the idiots who could see the downside to winning the lottery I don't think anyone people actually take seriously has said anything negative about the way the team is handling the offseason so far.

Mcdaniels and Xanders did handle free agency very well last year and by the evidence of the players they have lined up visits with so far I would say it looks promising again. Looks like they are staying away from people they will need to overpay for and sticking with people with proven records who are servicable starters or rotation players who can be had for cheap.

It is interesting to me that the players they have targeted so far fit in with our top 3 needs, CB, OL and DL.

Hamilton visiting Seahawks

Ben Hamilton, the Broncos’ longest-tenured offensive lineman and the front’s unofficial captain the past two years, has a visit set up with the Seattle Seahawks. Other teams are also interested. In Seattle, Hamilton no doubt was recommended by Jeremy Bates, the Seahawks’ new and Broncos’ former play caller.

Hamilton played mostly left guard for the Broncos but we was an all-American center at the University of Minnesota.

Hamilton’s presence will be missed in the Broncos’ locker room. He rarely gave me a quote. He often gave me guff for something I wrote. But those were just some of the reasons why he was one of my favorite Bronco guys.

Pats could get DT back — 3:33 p.m.

Although the Denver Broncos didn't put a qualifying offer on restricted free agent Le Kevin Smith, an NFL source has told Scout.com that the team is still in the mix to re-sign him, just at a lower figure.

But an even more interesting twist could be in the works.

According to the same source, the New England Patriots are also showing interest in the veteran defensive tackle. A year ago, New England traded Smith--who was originally a Patriots sixth-round draft pick in 2006--to Denver in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2010 draft. So the Patriots could end up with both Smith and the Broncos' fifth-round draft pick this year after loaning him out for a season.

Smith has started twice during his first four NFL seasons and has appeared in 44 regular-season contests.

what do you guys think about trying out Delhomme as a backup if Brandstater isn't ready?

No, Delhomme has no future as a backup and in my view would not be good for our offense, he is too erratic.

The Seahawks are not expected to tender an offer sheet to restricted free agent Brandon Marshall during his Saturday visit.

ESPN's Adam Schefter labels the visit a "get-to-know-each other" session as opposed to a full-court press to get Marshall to sign. The process is not expected to happen quickly, and the teams could engage in trade talks in lieu of Seattle surrendering the No. 6 overall pick.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/06/not-so-fast-pashos-leaves-dc-without-a-deal-visiting-cleveland/

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 6, 2010 7:46 PM ET

Contrary to what we told you a few minutes ago, it's not a done deal for free agent offensive lineman Tony Pashos in Washington.

We're now hearing that Pashos left his visit with the Redskins without a deal and will pay a visit to the Cleveland Browns before he signs anywhere.

Pashos is coming off a 2009 season in which he started just one game for the San Francisco 49ers, but he's a 29-year-old with the talent to be a starting tackle in the NFL, and he'll talk to multiple suitors before signing.

How this guy can have a radio show in Denver and never mentioned once the FA signings of Bannon and the CB Jones, how does he have credibility? Of course, he did mention what a huge Steeler fan he is.

As for Peppers, $40 some million guaranteed, is that worth it to convert him to the 3-4? I don't think so.

Agreed. That's the salt and lime following the tequila. It's fine to bring in solid guys with the 2nd-tier FA's, but the draft is for young studs to build the team for years to come.

I don't see how people can seriously be so critical of last year's draft.

Moreno missed all of pre-season with an MCL and was still our leading rusher despite the interior OL being generally weak and the OL as a whole falling apart when Harris went out.

Ayers was in regular rotation at the SOLB spot, more than we've seen from a lot of pass rushing rookies.

McBath looked like a guy who will be pushing to start as soon as 2010.

Bruton was more than worth his draft spot on special teams alone, and showed some flashes with the defense.

Olsen, Smith, and Brandstater haven't gotten much of a chance yet, so its too early to judge them.

Agreed. 2009 was a decent draft class. Too early to tell how good they can be as starters, since I think with some of the lower rounders the staff absolutely was trying to win NOW with the FA pickups and trades, and therefore were working the rookies in slowly.

I think most of the 2009 picks will end up being solid players for the Broncos.

Sorry this is how I feel.
I think if you have 5 1st or 2nd round picks you should get a little more production on an 8-8 football team than an nice FS and a RB who despite a ton of carries couldn't even crack 1K . A grand is not even the benchmark anymore for a quality RB. 1200 is. Sometimes you have to bring your own blocker especially if you are the #12 pick.

Edwards is disappointing. Maybe he is just trying to get Denver and Seattle to bid against each other. Pashos wanted to go where he could start and he wouldn't have in Denver unless Harris wasn't healthy. I can see not overpaying for Hadnot - he is, at most, a stopgap at center. Again, he may be trying to drive up the bidding. If we get him, fine, if not, no big deal.

Until you can answer these with accuracy, you can't simply compare the two using a simply ypc metric.

Here are stats eliminating all short yard carries:

1st down and long yards, carries and ypc

Moreno: 553, 144, 3.8
Buckhalter: 386, 70, 5.8

2nd down and long yards, carries and YPC

Moreno: 151, 28, 5.4
Buckhalter: 50, 14 3.6

3rd down and long yards, carries and YPC

Moreno: -1, 2, -.5
Buckhalter: 38, 2, 19

2nd and short:

Moreno: 58, 16, 3.6
Buckhalter: 87, 11, 7.9

3rd and short:

Moreno: 65, 17, 3.8
Buckhalter: 3, 3, 1


Stout run defenses, I arbitrarily define as top 10 rush yards per game defense, of those we played Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cincinnati and Philly.

Total runs in those games:

Moreno: 32 (79 yards)
Buckhalter: 30 (126 yards)

If we define obvious run situations and assume that the other team has an overloaded box on those plays as 2nd and goal, 3rd and goal, 3rd down and less than 3, 4th down and less than 3, then it breaks down like this:

Moreno: 30 attempts (94 yards) 3.1 ypc.
Buckhalter: 5 attempts (2 yards) 0.4 ypc.

Are you going to tell me that the 2 rushes Buckhalter had in 3rd and long and the 25 rushes Moreno had more in very obvious running situations make all the difference? Next time you grap things out of your ass in a pathetic attempt at defending a wrong standpoint, you should pray a little harder.

The line was fine and healthy and playing at a high level at all times in a scheme for which it was well suited.

Dwan Edwards leaves Denver without deal
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 8, 2010 10:43 AM ET

I ranked Ravens defensive tackle in my top-ten unrestricted free agents, so it didn't surprise me that he's received so much early interest.

It's more surprising that Edwards has visited two places (Seattle and Denver) and has yet to sign a contract.

Edwards completed his visit with the Broncos Sunday, and it "doesn't appear" there will be a deal, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

Teams may be hesitant to hand Edwards the money he's looking for because of a spinal fusion surgery he underwent in 2008.

Jones, Broncos contract details

Scout.com has learned the details of the previously reported deal between the Denver Broncos and CB Nathan Jones.

The four-year deal, according to a league source, is worth a maximum of $13.6 million if Jones reaches all the incentives which are based on playing time and performance levels. The source notes that if Jones stays healthy, he should be able to hit on a reasonable amount of incentives. The base deal is worth just over $4 million (base salaries and $1 million signing bonus).

Jones (5-foot-10, 185 pounds) is a seventh-year cornerback who appeared in every game during the last two seasons with Miami after spending his first four NFL seasons with Dallas. He was selected by the Cowboys in the seventh round (205th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft from Rutgers University.

In 83 career regular-season games (7 starts), Jones has totaled 104 tackles (91 solo), six sacks (34 yds.), three interceptions, 13 pass breakups, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He owns 53 career tackles on special teams and has returned 10 kickoffs for 178 yards (17.8 avg.).

Last season, Jones appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and registered career highs in games started (5), tackles (35), pass breakups (10), special-teams tackles (19) and forced fumbles (2). Jones, whose 19 special-teams tackles tied for 10th in the NFL, also added one sack with Miami in 2009.

Jones, Broncos contract details

Scout.com has learned the details of the previously reported deal between the Denver Broncos and CB Nathan Jones.

The four-year deal, according to a league source, is worth a maximum of $13.6 million if Jones reaches all the incentives which are based on playing time and performance levels. The source notes that if Jones stays healthy, he should be able to hit on a reasonable amount of incentives. The base deal is worth just over $4 million (base salaries and $1 million signing bonus).

Just what the Broncos needed, another CB!

Why wouldn't they? Bailey, Goodman, Smith are the locks to make the team. Law, what's going on with him? Tony Carter played decently, but he is not guaranteed anything. Jones is a standout special teams player and offers valuable depth to our defensive backfield. Getting Jones hopefully gives us four solid options at CB if Smith is able to pan out. With the injuries that happen in the NFL and the increasing passing attacks league-wide, it made sense to have another investment. Some players will not be around forever. Makes perfect sense to me.

Reading comp time. Go read my post again and tell me what standpoint I took other than to ask questions. I didn't know the answers to those questions and didn't pretend to. I simply asked.

The implication in your original post was clear, that the points you mentioned would explain the discrepancy.

CB is a big position of need, we currently have 2 NFL ready players at that position, not really enough. Smith may or may not become an NFL caliber player but showed nothing in his rookie season to make anyone feel comfortable about trusting him as a nickel, Carter played way too little for any kind of judgement to be passed and Ty Law is a year older than he was last year.

Jarvis Green is an upgrade over Kenny Peterson who was horrendous last year. He is still only a rotational guy and should see less than 50 percent of the snaps a game. In 2007 and 2009, he had very high snap counts for his career and his production was impaired by it.

I love these moves so far. I am still hoping we land Hadnot. But, if you are a Broncos RFA like Marshall and Doom and are looking at playing for around 3mil next season, what are you thinking about these free agent signings? Williams, Green, and Bannan will all be making more than them if I am not mistaken. I'd love to see BMarsh and Doom get extensions this offseason...

Not much of a surprise, as Eddie Mac has shown we had by far the least amount of money tied up in salaries this year in the entire league, so Bowlen can be generous in FA.

This is definitely a part of the game McX is very good at.

By Bill Williamson


The Broncos have been busy revamping their defensive line with the signing of Jarvis Green (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3654) and Justin Bannan (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3667), who will likely start at the end positions, and Jamal Williams (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1643), who will play nose tackle.

The group is an improvement from last season. Still, the new players are making Denver a very old defense.

A lot will happen in free agency and in the draft, but there is a chance Denver will have nine defensive starters over the age of 30. Six of Denver’s starters last season __ Champ Bailey (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1758) (31), Brian Dawkins (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=978) (36), Andra Davis (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3669) (31), Andre Goodman (31), Mario Haggan (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4686) (30) and Renaldo Hill (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2751) (31) – will be 30 or older by the start of the 2010 season. Bannan will be 31 next month, Williams will be 34 next month and Green is 31.

The only current key Denver defenders are linebackers Elvis Dumervil (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9712) (26) and D.J. Williams (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5542) (27). Apparently, Denver believes this unit is built to win now. It better be because this group won’t be around together for long.

I don't worry too much about this. Of course it's not ideal, but you keep drafting and developing players who will hopefully start replacing the older guys. And you can always sign more FA players in future years to replace these guys when they break down. It's an expensive way to operate, and if not managed right can kill your cap (when there is one), but right now there is no cap it's not our money so not our concern. Whether or not you sign these older FA's you still need to hit on your draft picks. Consistently miss in the draft and you end up failing either way.

Man WTF? What do you think they should be doing instead genius?

These guys aren't really old.

I personally like what we're trying to do - bring in some guys that are actually made for the 3-4 system. These are the type of guys that won't pull hole in your pocket.

I swear - some of you people NOTHING will ever be right.

I am all for bringing in some experienced and still even in their 30s still playing at a pretty decent level. my main thing is getting youth behind those guys being groomed as eventual replacements

we are doing that with the secondary, i just hope we keep that going with the front 7

other than that slight worry I am loving these moves by the team.

i am all but certain Doom and his agent are already at work and talking with the team about a new deal. i can't see us taking the risk of pissing him off by forcing him to play for peanuts when he has been a great team player and damn good player on the field, and risk losing him next season as a UFA.

by the start of the season he will be signed long term

Agreed. I think center, guard, and now SILB are the biggest remaining "needs". If any of those can be addressed prior to the draft so we can just pick BPA throughout, that would be great

I hope so too I think BPA regardless of need at 11. If we trade down I hope we go BPA of need at NT C G WR
