...is making us look pretty stupid for not claiming him off waivers and choosing to go the cheap and try to sign him one year vs a team like Chicago. Great preseason and extremely solid first game so far.

Oh,

http://www.chron.com/sports/texans/article/Texans-waive-defensive-tackle-Okoye-receiver-2079411.php

was going by what I read on here and others that said he was on waivers because his contract was 5 years as a 1st rounder, not 4.

No, he visited a few teams and Denver did try to bring him in.....

He was a FA... AFTER he cleared waivers.

Fail thread. Broncos tried to get a few different guys in and a lot were not interested. As we rebuild and get better we will get more and more yes answers from players. Stop thinking anyone on the board really knows what is going on with the front office.

Why would he have signed with Denver unless it was for more money than the Bears (or anyone else) offered?

My point is that we could have claimed him off waivers, and had the 24 year old DT on our squad for the year. Instead we (and all the other teams) let him through, after which he became an FA and thus out of reach. Naturally he was going to go to a 4-3 team like Chicago which is packed at D-Line, which will amplify his own talent and make him bank as a FA at the end of the year.

He never hit waivers. The new CBA makes it so only players in their 4th year or less go on waivers, the rest go straight through as free agents.

If he does the same against Denver, then I'll worry about it.

I don't understand why everyone is piling on you for making a simple mistake. Under the old CBA it was 6 years, so it's a rather simple mistake to make.

I know I joined awhile ago, but just recently started posting regularly and there really are some a-holes here.

I can't speak for everyone but I was just busting your balls an poking fun at your hissy fit thread. Doesn't reflect on you personally.

And to the new old guy, shut it! ^5

I am kidding there too. Don't get upset, ok guys. Want to hug?

People like you show, number of posts doesn't matter. People who have 20k and 80k posts on this board just try to throw down everyone because they post here often. Thanks for coming to someone's defense and shutting some of the iditios on this board down.

Well if he never was waived and we brought him in, I am not surprised. Of course he went to Chicago. He's on a great defense with great defensive coaching.

Honestly, sarcasm doesn't bother me even a little, in fact, that's how I live.

I used to be over at BC, and I really did like it there, but Al banned me for BS and that's actually why I've taken shelter over here now.

One thing I do wish people would do when being sarcastic is throw in an emoticon or something to indicate it, it's hard to decipher through simple text on a screen.

That is a fair request. Glad you posted some level headed ideas rather than just complain without solutions like BroncoLover (she sure likes to complain).

If you post day in and day out.. and have 20k posts, you should know how to post in a level headed manner. If you want advice i can do so, But i have seen lot of them dont like that either. So i just pointed the obvious. I dont have anything against you. You like broncos and i do as well. So take it easy and enjoy the season. But give everyone there space and just dont make fun because someone is new here. Which lot of them here like to do. Sarcasam is fair and if something is wrong, pointing that out is awesome. But not all the time. Good luck for a good season, let rock it tomorrow night. I have seen some good posts by you.. keep up the good work.
