Well it was day 1 of FA. He knows his value now and the teams that had a lot of money have spent it or aren't interested in him. Classic case of supply vs demand vs money able to spend.

Nah, I don't even use twitter.

MileHighReport has a twitter feed page that groups all of the Broncos players tweets on one page.

Anybody here at all worried about our FS situation. I'm a Rahim fan but look at the safeties on our roster. Ward is not FS, Ihenacho is not a FS, Carter is not a FS. if Rahim goes down we will definitely be hurting as we have zero depth there and those three good/decent SS's we have can not fill the void.

Rahim actually has a "fan"? Wow. I understand rooting for all Broncos no matter how bad they suck (Tony Carter, Bolden, Rahim etc..) but a FAN? Are you a UCLA fan or something?

Just kidding....kind of

I think Elway is. Before we signed Talib we were going after Jairus Byrd. So obviously he is looking to upgrade the position, if nothing else at least the depth there. I expect the Broncos to target a FS fairly early in the draft. In fact if Haha Clinton-Dix starts to fall I would not be opposed to moving up to get him. Elway has been so aggressive this offseason it wouldn't surprise me.

I think the Broncos will draft a safety considering Moore's injury, Carter not being healthy and Bruton and Duke only being reserves.

Is Larry Foot of the Steelers on his last leg or can he still play?

I could also see the Bronco utilizing a 3-2-6 Dime sub package this year for obvious passing situations . Slide Von down to the line with Ware at the other end. Two pass rushing DTs likely Malik Jackson and Derek Wolfe. Drop the other 7 in coverage. The other LB being Trevathan with 3 CBs and 3 Safeties. Essentially Von slides down and plays DE and our 3rd safety drops down in the box with Trevathan. This utilizes Ward and Duke's strengths. A lot of zone blitz looks out of this package would wreak havoc and confusion on opposing QBs.

I would have been more worried about it if they didn't get Ward, but we upgraded SS which was much worse than FS now that Moore is coming back. At least we have one weakness instead of 2 like we did before.

Really the 2 weak points in the D are MLB then FS and maybe nickel CB.

I wouldn't mind an old steeler on this this team though. I just want somebody who can contribute in practice and special teams but has been around for awhile and has a ring or two. Some one who knows what it takes to get it done.

Well myself, MED, Florida, Drunken, and others have been very critical of the nightmares game and are very much so concerned.

We are hoping he returns to full health and to the same level prior to injury which was average/solid at best. First he needs to return to form, which is no guarantee, and the level of his normal play leaves a lot to be desired.

As was just mentioned Elway went after Byrd, so I would not be surprised to see a FS brought in through the draft.

Not that the Jets had enough media onslaught they take on a crappy back up who will probably take Geno's job after 1 or 2 good preseason games and practices. bwhahah

Sanchez released? If only the Raiders waited an extra day. Then again, they might still go after him.

Actually A big selling point for Carter coming out was his ability to play either safety spot. He also took a good portion of snaps at FS in 2011 (over Rahim) and if he is healthy he could compete there.

They could have got him much cheaper and probably just as many wins.
