One good year? C'mon now.
And 8 straight 1000 yard seasons. Sucks, I think he makes it back to Stl. Fisher seems to want him back.

I disagree, I think Dwyer can be good, he does run with power. I would give a 6th or 7th for him.

My first preference is draft a RB. Dwyer would be an option because he is still very young,

6. Hall of Fame role model: Wisconsin RB Montee Ball had an interesting response when asked about his running style. He said his idol is former Bronco great Terrell Davis, but added, "I feel I run a lot like Curtis Martin." That a college senior knows about the Jets' Hall of Famer, who last played in 2005, tells me something about the kid. A lot of 20-somethings have no idea about anything that occurred before 2010. Ball could be an interesting option for the Jets in the second round (39th overall).

I despise of him as a person. He's the ultimate chump for what he did, not to mention bad team mate and immature don't bode well with Manning.

Aside from the fact that he can't pass protect, the way he runs is exactly what we need and he should be much more affordable than Green if Tampa cuts him loose. With how much I despise him, I would gladly take him over Green.

I don't see Elway bringing in any scumbags. Regardless of how they play. Besides, Blount has not done anything close to dominating. I wouldn't list him in the top 50 backs that come to mind.

There are a handful of guys Denver could find in the draft. I really hope Greene is not brought in by us. He is quite average. The OL of the Jets had some issues the past season, but I am still not over enthused at the idea of bringing him in.

He has talent as evidence of two seasons ago.. He was lost behind Martin last year..

Scumbag he is.

It's sad I would rather have a scumbag like Blount than Green. I agree there are some solid prospects in the draft.

Bush is looking to get paid.

And the last time he joined a team with a top tier passing game he looked lost. And we don't need his returning skills, either. He'd be a red zone weapon, but not at the money he's going to want.

IDK he got paid and at this point with as many people saying hes only a gimmick back i think he wants to prove he can be a winner...but we are all just making guesses at this point but i would love to see him in orange

Can Reggie pick up the blitz, or is he just a pretty boy?

That's not exactly true. In fact he really wants to stay in Miami. Money is a factor probably because they are low balling him and using that leverage knowing he really likes it there. I'm sure Bush knows he cannot command North of say $4 million a season.

I don't see Broncos spending a lot in FA on a RB.

And the problem is we are courting one who isn't worth a penny.. We should be courting Knighton (DT) and Schwartz (RG/RT).. A JDR and Foxy product respectively..

i have a feeling elway might go a little hollywood in the draft and FA this year....hes got the full swagger confidence going and hes been on a roll. Plus as stacked with young talent as our team is he can afford to go all in this year.

Baltimore had Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce a 2nd and 3rd round pick respectively
San Francisco has Frank Gore a 3rd round pick
Pats have Stevan Ridley a 3rd round pick

3 of the final 4 teams in the NFL playoffs this past season had at least a 3rd round pick at the RB position.

i'm not saying take Lacy in the 1st, but it is a smart idea to use a quality pick on a RB. in the playoffs a team needs to be able to run and Denver couldn't. Get a guy like Bell in the 2nd or 3rd and that changes completely.

All we need is a little more Le'Veon Bell.
