No he is a Free Agent already, I have to verify but I remember Cecil Lammey of footballguys.com talking about it on the radio.

Edit: yes he wasn't resigned so he is not a Bronco.

Feel bad for him but it was obvious we would be moving forward without him

35 Ball, Lance RB
28 Buckhalter, Correll
37 Johnson, Jeremiah
McLaughlin, Mike RB
36 Minor, Brandon
27 Moreno, Knowshon

I thought LenDell White was still on the team. Was he cut?

Lance Ball FTW!!!!!!!

So we have a very thin list especially if Buckhalter is released. Better have a plan that brings someone else in that is comparable to Bucky and I have a feeling it will be an Ex-Panther. Jeremiah Johnson can skin rabbits, kill ingins and build log cabins but can he run?

I agree. My guess is that we would be pursuing DeAngelo Williams.
He's a solid back, and can step right in and even start.
Other than that I don't see anyone else of his caliber that could fit that role; being either a legit 1 or 2 in the depth chart

Yeah, we pretty much have a pile of colon logs in the backfield.

I think Broncos will look at Maghee as well as Williams.

Does anybody really care about this all that much?

I just assumed the guy would either be released due to salary or just break down and get injured again.

Sometimes you just have to look at it.

I'm sure they will. They don't have nearly the quality or depth at running back that Fox's run game needs.

Fox would have LOVED to have him some Peyton Hills I tell ya what.

Realistic RB Depth Chart

1(A) -- Knowshon Moreno
1(B) -- TBD (Free Agent: Williams, McGahee, Barber III, Bush)

Back-Up: Lance Ball -- as he is a Studesville guy. I'd guess Mario Fannin will be our young rookie rusher who gets looks. Can't see Johnson or Minor being better options than Fannin at this point.

Moreno, FA, Ball and Fannin. Bank on it.

We already got more out of Buckhalter than I ever expected, which really wasnt much to begin with. Our RB core is just something else that has gotten worse the last couple of years. Might as well take a flyer on Tiki Barber since he wants to make a come back. Not sold that Deangelo is worth the money it will take.

TD, I thought the idea was we needed more of a scat back type. Not sure what Barber has in the tank, but that is more of the mold that Denver is missing in the backfield, plus he would likely come cheap. Considering some of the guys we have taken a flyer on over the years, why not?

It's more of just a personal thing. I just never liked him in N.y. even before the whole retire , tv guy , cheating on his pregnant wife with a young blonde , NFL return...

I didn't like him when he was just known as a fumbler before he had a couple of good season and all that stuff after he retired just added to my dislike.


But I just don't like him and would hate to see him in a Broncos uni , nothing more really.

OK thought there was more to the story that I was missing (from a playing standpoint), just hadnt heard of anyone showing any interest in him. I know he didnt get along with Coughlin, but he would hardly be the first player that hated playing for Tom Coughlin.

As far as the off the field stuff, I would take his story line over any number of former or current Broncos.

Who will be next?

Candidates that wouldn't shock me:

Orton - $8.8 mil (Traded to Arizona, Minnesota or Miami possibly)
Hill - $2.4 mil (Cut, no longer needed w/Moore, Carter, McBath and Bruton)
Gaffney - $2.4 mil (Traded - maybe to StL or back to NE?)
Goodman - $2.9 mil (If they target another CB in FA)
Haggan - $1.93 mil (Unlikely but could look to go younger/cheaper w/reserve LBs)
Paxton - $865k (Not sure if Fox keeps a LS)
Cox - $405k (Obvious reasons)

We have a running back and his name is Tim Tebow. Honestly, we should have an offensive set with Tim, a tight end for the occasional pass, and 9 linemen blocking. We can call it the Power FU.

if you played defense on this team last season and your name is not Champ Bailey or Elvis Dumervil you should be shown the door.

Buckhalter can't stay healthy and has fumbling issues too. He played well late last season mainly because he had fresh legs since missed so many games before that, but history shows his health lasts only so long.

But, but....the coaching staff already said that they're literally building the entire defense around Vickerson.

I guess he was marginally better than Garrison Hearst but I am glad he is gone, is our great 2nd round TE still on the team?

I wonder how long before mCd convinces the Rams to make a trade offer for Lonnie (Bob) Paxton.

Nope, he's in Detroit.

Oh, you were talking about Quinn...

Hard to say if the good Doctor can do anything other than block a punt, beat his girl, or get yelled at for costing the team a timeout.

mcds teams never amounted to the collective talent of the players, in my opinion. thats one of the reasons i think denver may rebound pretty well this year (of course).

the guys mcd replaced like webster, green, the 5 or 6 safeties, all got replaced with equal or better players. Dline still sucks. WR is obviously fine or better right now as it was under shanny, QB is unknown and OL is worse based on scheme, which is reverting under fox.

in other words, i have no clue how mcds players will work with fox' scheme, but individually i think the players are not as bad as the team was last year.
