Chargers just re-signed Malcolm Floyd.

Potent offense with Vincent Jackson, Gates, Floyd, and Patrick Crayton catching passes from Rivers. Plus Ryan Mathews out of the backfield.

If Bob Sanders can actually play a full season...look out...althought with change of DC we'll see if that helps or hurts...

I disagree. If the NFL can't work in a supplemental draft in a time frame that works for them then to bad. He put himself in this situation. As for the NFL, it is an unusual year with the lock out and I understand them not bending over backwards to accommodate Pryor.

the decisions he made in college should be irrelevant...

if there is no supp draft, then he should be classified as an undrafted free agent...

he is an adult no longer in college that will be wanted by a few nfl teams...

he should be allowed to find work with one, and if he isn't he should pursue litigation...

1995 was Shanny's first year and he started to bring in FA's at that time. It lead to the 1996 season where the Broncos went 13-3 and then crapped themselves in the playoffs (I know you know this stuff). I'm pretty sure Shanny was still bringing in FAs in 1997 when the Broncos went to and won their first SB (1998).

But the flurry of FA's happened in that window that got them the 2 SBs. At least, that is what I remember.

Well, the other argument that I've seen is that at the time he decided to leave school for the NFL, it was purely his own decision. He was still on the Ohio State team and decided he was done with NCAA ball. Apparently if a player is ineligible to play, they allow them to go in the supplemental draft but you can't just go that route because you decide to. The time to declare for the NFL was well before and he should've made that decision when everyone else did.

People would be a lot less concerned with declaring for the draft in time if they knew they could just declare when they felt like it for the supplemental draft. You'd also have teams who could use a future pick for a player that'd help you right away so it could even be appealing for some people to go that route as they might get drafted slightly higher than they otherwise would.

Just saw on PFT that the Pats signed Andre Carter now.

I wonder if they aren't just trying to get another trophy before Brady's time comes. Why else get so many older vets when they always seem to have as many draft picks as they'd like to select players.

Broncos were shamefully annihilated by the Oakland Raiders, 59-14, before a disgusted sellout-turned-very-small-crowd at Invesco Field at Mile High. "The whole Broncos organization, country, team, fans, players, coaches, owners, from top to bottom, that was an embarrassing performance." The massacre at Invesco will live on for a while.

This was one of those games in which it looked like the Broncos had eight players on defense. The Raiders had 169 yards rushing by halftime, and tailback Darren McFadden had four touchdowns on 196 yards rushing and receiving with more than five minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Raiders needed only three plays before McFadden scored the first of his four touchdowns.
