I couldn't find another story that confirms it. I'm at work, so that link is blocked because of adult/mature content. WTF is on that site?

I will heed that warning. I just got my productivity back, after the NFL season ended. Wait, is March Madness coming up? Damn...

If Kup retires, Prater would be the longest tenured Bronco....

I love reddit, I spend too much time there but fair warning...the Broncos sub there is terrible.

Possibly worse than the light rail. My favorite right now is the thread that we are getting Revis for a 3rd, and it's been reported.

I hope Kupesdad sticks around on the forums. He's one of our better contributors, IMO. Not to take anything away from our great, many contributors though....

Yeah Lombardi told me last night that he wont be back cos of an ankle issue. Shame that kid was a good servant. Gonna be a lot of change this year in Denver, a lot of players wont be back, probably one of the biggest overhauls we've ever had in one offseason.

Look forward to seeing what we can do this off-season. Thanks for all your updates.

Not one move yet is surprising though. Bailey, Kuper, they were not contributing enough on the field to keep paying. Anyone who followed football knew at their cap numbers they would get released early into FA to free up cash for younger starters.

No problem. Cannot recall us ever going into an offseason with no MLB on the roster, 1 cornerback, 3 defensive ends (2 were injured last year), 2 wide receivers and 1 guard.

Moreno IMO would be the one player that would be nice to hear he is returning to Denver. I guess Woodyard also because that would give us nice depth at WSL going forward. Woodyard probably will leave to start at the weakside spot for some other team.

You're quite right it isn't but we are going to have to find some pretty good players over the next week or 2 and leaders amongst them, then bring them all together and turn them into a fine tuned machine by September. Big ask this year and a lot bigger than last year when in reality we didn't lose anyone and added quite a few good players.

For anyone who's followed the Broncos for decades they wont be used to this. Aside from Ian Gold, Aldridge and Shannon Sharpe, we've rarely lost starters in FA and that's looking very likely as we stand.

I think Wesley may end up within the division with Allen.

Honestly, if I got the kind of injury that he had I would have retired on the spot.

How these men even survive 4 yrs of HS football, then college, to even make it to the pros is also amazing. If you follow prep sports ( my area loaded with talent) you see all the time incredible talents who get injured before anyone even knows who they are.

Bertrand berry and the other de the next year come to mind. Plus a few guards. The year we had 3 third round comp pics we must have lost a few.
