Default ESPN insider rumor mill. - Ndamukong Suh

"The first thing you must understand about Detroit and Ndamukong Suh is that the Lions have indeed had conversations with other teams about trading Suh. This is a fact," wrote Mike Freeman of BleacherReport.com. "What is also true: It's been just talk and not even serious talk. Just a feeling-out of other teams to see what they would be willing to give up for Suh."

I've seen this floating around the rumor mill. Apparently they are wanting a first rounder (assumedly not 31).

First and foremost, he counts 22.4 mil against the cap this year, so he simply is not an option for us right now unless Manning does a Tom Brady and ponies up some of his cap space.

IF WE COULD GET UNDER THE CAP

Would you guys give up this years 1st and 2nd? Definitely a win-now move but you would be adding a complete superstar to our D along with some of the "Nastiness" Elway seems to want.

I probably wouldn't. For next year's sake sure... but after next year we just couldn't afford everybody. If you really crunched the number and thought it was feasible to re-sign the entire core of players then yeah, I would go for it.

Miller, Ware, Knighton, and Suh ...



Don't think it will work, just because of the cap/cash (even if we sign him to a better deal and Manning takes less). He'd be completely worth giving up 1st and 2nd this year though.

No, we would have to do way too much maneuvering to get under the cap, pay him and loss those picks.

Great player but too costly for what we need.

of course I do it for a 1st and thats it.

and pending the money works.

And while were at, lets trade the next 2 years 1st rounders for Adrian Peterson as well.

He's one of the best, but his temper makes signing him somewhat tenuous. I also feel like he wouldn't accept that as a reason to lower his asking price. Probably too rich for our blood.

He'd bust off 2K yards in penalties in our system.

This is a football discussion board.

There is a subject that came up on a football site.

The site pertains to the Broncos.

I posed a question regarding a football rumor, and geared it towards the Broncos.

Such a large collection of miserable negative people on here.

Yeah, I'm going to have to rule for password forgetter here. Title is clearly stipulated as "rumor" and reading the OP as being doubtful to happen. I'm not sure what anyone else expects during the off season.

Eh, I am with you in that it's a rumor thread and perfectly fine but I also feel like crush wasn't necessarily ****ting on the thread or the OP, but rather that off season rumors and speculation gets old in general.

I might be wrong.

If that's the case, crush could have worded it better (like mentioning all rumors suck, Madden trades suck, whatever).

Yeah, that is fair...who knows.

Anyhow, it's fun to think about Suh on this team.

They are not the best source in the world but they are far better than they used to be.

Yeah, that is a tough choice but I think Knighton is going to command $10 million next year. Denver won't pay that for him.

Look at the recent DT signings. They are getting huge money.

I know some people don't like the guy, but man...him, Wolfe, Pot Roast, DT, Von and Ware? That is borderline unfair.
