Bingo +10M richer...and a lot better.
Replace 2 immensely productive players with a slot WR who has been a walking injury and rookie WR who has no idea what to do in this o? Seriously don't understand how this would help the team.

^ That Manning guy kind of digs him some Tamme anyway.

Let me recap:
  • Dumervil has been nothing but a class-act Bronco since joining the organization, it will be disheartening to see him go but I understand the reasoning for his release.
  • I believe that by using a different approach (likely rotation) with Ayers (whom JDR likes a lot), Jackson, a free agent or draft selection, that the Broncos can still produce at a high level with a consistent pass rush. In short: I do not see Dumervil as player that cannot be replaced. However, it is clear to all of us that you think otherwise.
  • Getting rid of Dumervil allows the team to be more competitive on rushing downs and improve an area on the team where he has shown some weakness.
  • Dumping Dumervil's contract allows the team to be more competitive in free agency, and will give them easier room to work with in 2014 where a lot of young, productive players will be seeing an extension or bigger payday. I've already mentioned the names and gave a link to how many current players on our roster will be FA next season. It is basically double what we have now.

There is more, but I don't think I need to bother. You have been on the wrong side of most any argument from a player development standpoint for the last several years and have banked your reputation supporting players who can't play a lick in the NFL. I'll leave you to that.
This post is pretty much a 9th inning grand slam to win thw WS.

cut Tamme? umm no.

Doom is slightly overpaid but not to the extent he needs to be forced to take a pay cut or get released.
that said, my guess was always that we would take a DE in the draft or move Wolfe to DE full time(which i do not want to happen)

RE: the original thread topic. I've already shared my thoughts in regard to Doom. Sucks that he's probably leaving, but given the circumstances it's understandable why he has to (for both parties).

Mendenhall- Do not want. He's coming off of an injury. He's shown to be somewhat immature and unprofessional and the past couple of years he seems to wear down at the end of games. Draft a power back in the 3rd round, or sign Stephen Jackson.

Knighton-No brainer. Get it done.

DRC- Solid 2/3 corner. Would be an upgrade as a nickel, and would challenge Harris for CB # 2. Obviously, not a Revis type game changer, but still would be a solid signing.

Freeney-If the price is right and the idea is to use him as a rotational player in obvious passing situations, I'm OK with it. I think he's pretty much done as an impact player, but he might be able to eek out 6-8 sacks in the right 4-3 scheme. Still think we'd draft a DE too, even with a Freeney signing.

one thing signing DRC would do is allow the Broncos to pass on a CB in the first unless they were truly BPA. you'd have Champ,DRC,Harris,Bolden,Carter as your major depth.

that allows us to target DL,LB,RB or OL.

Add Detroit safety Louis Delmas to the list of potential targets.

Delmas is a solid player, but nothing huge. Would be good depth to have considering Adams contract status, uncertainty with Carter and the whole board hating Moore.

Delmas has been good when he's healthy. Could be worth a look

Not if he doesn't make it out of ARI!! I am praying that them having Arians over there will make that so!!! Nobody knows him better than him. And if Arians doesn't sign him after coaching him for 4 years, with a team with a huge hole at RB, that should be seen as a red flag for any other team.
