#1 is John Abraham: best fit, Denver

06-18-2013 12:15 AM

Have Phillips play DE and LB and have Abraham compete with Ayers at DE.... Could happen. Sure would be crowded though.

I'm not a big Abraham guy but could he help the team?

06-18-2013 12:25 AM

I'm guessing Abraham is still asking for too much money. At this point he's probably hoping a team loses their top pass rusher in TC and overpays him amidst their panic.

I think I'd rather have Seymour than Abraham.

Sign em both. I'm sure they'd like to be on the invincible team anyway.

I dont want us to bring in anymore washed up vets. I want to see Wolfe flourish into a 10 sack player for ua this year. I think his peek is in the 12 sack a year range which is great for a white guy. Von says he thinks he took around 4 sacks last year from wolfe so that would have netted him at 10 as a rookie de/dt . Man i love the way were building this team . We finaly got big in the trenches were in the seattle seahawks mold. Wolfe and williams might blossom into the stud DTs as fans weve been yerning for since trevor pryce. I can see us being number one against the run next year for the fact that teams will have to pass to keep up but also ayers is great a the run. Lets not forget del rio coached him to defensive player of the senior ball . Im hoping ayers can put it all together this year realiatically 8 sacks would be a great year for him but im not holding my breath.

Both still want too much money. Semour was all but headed to the Falcons but he wanted too much.

I think both these guys, will definitely hold out until TC nears ends and there are some injuries and they could land those openings and get paid more.

I think we're set. Ayers in a contract year will be as good if not better then either of those guys.

Also this list is terrible ... Idonije at 3? A fullback at 2? Seymore kherry rhodes and quinten mikell should be 2 3 and 4

Leach is not just any ol' fullback, but a player that ranked higher than PM, Von, and Champ on the NFL Top 100 last year.

Third most widely circulated newspaper in the country.

I loved the USA Today when I was traveling. Now with the internet it is kind outdated because they don't do a lot of in-depth reporting but a summation. With the internet they kinda lost their nitch.

I still like their sports section

Just wait, soon enough he will enlighten us on the superior periodical that he reads.

Lol ....... He is and will always just be a fullback.

Too bad we don't use fullbacks.

bronco militia 06-18-2013 09:54 AM

unless the broncos suffer an injury in TC, I don't see them making anymore additions

That's all Howard Griffith was too, so what's your point?

Yeah but Howard played in a system that a FB was used extensively. This system we have not it's not. Paying for a top FB makes NO sense at all.

I don't get why people say **** like this. Three of the top six all-time sack seasons belong to white guys, and arguably the best pass rusher in the league today is white.

UberBroncoMan 06-18-2013 03:13 PM

We're at the point where we'd have to sacrifice youth to get a FA like Abraham. The only point in getting him would be to have him fight Phillips for a roster spot. Phillips has no guaranteed money in his contract. So he could be released during cuts if he lost out.

Did Alex Gibbs used a FB in his zone blocking scheme when he was in Denver before? If the answer is yes, maybe we should find a roster spot for the best FB in the NFL. Even if that means having to cut one of the two great up and coming TE's in Green or Thomas.

I'd rather cut Dreesen or Tamme

So you would leave us with one proven TE? That is crazy. Green and Thomas combined have 9 catches for 92 yards. You let one of those guys go if you are bringing in a guy like Leach.
