I think it's safe to say no team has worse depth at DT, then the Denver Broncos. That might have been true before two season ending injuries even...

Vickerson’s move to injured reserve leaves the team with Brodrick Bunkley, Ryan McBean, Marcus Thomas and Mitch Unrein as the defensive tackles on the active roster.

But they felt a need to add a fullback to the roster........Sheesh

if there was a DT that was available, he'd probably not be that good....

Vickerson didn't do anything in his 4 starts this year.
Marcus Thomas had 6 tackles in his one start against SD. 'Bout time this boy finds his way back to being a starter.

I didn't analyze his every play, but saw him quite a few times...as well as collapsing the pocket. Although we got ran on.

I am glad, we get to fully analyze Marcus Thomas...as he is only on a 1 year contract.

We could have still "fully analyzed" Marcus Thomas with Vickerson in the rotation. You do realize that these guys can't play every snap and that we need some depth at the position, right?

In other news.. I think Quinn Johnson is going to be a nice lead blocker for McGahee. The thumper we really need in the running game.. hopefully.

Vickerson is a body...not a quality starter. Thomas may be a quality starter, so I'm glad he is getting an opportunity.

Sucks Vickerson is gone because we are so thin at the position. How old are you, 12? Why would you think that DT's don't rotate? Not sure you "fully analyzed" your thoughts before typing.

Vickerson is much better than Thomas.
