Von has always been pretty strong against the run as well. He is the guy who routinely gets stops for losses or little to no gain.

Wow I would be real hesitant to give a fat guy like POTROAST the boat load of money he wants. He is an injury waiting to happen being that fat.

I think we will see more of a Steelers type approach with players in Denver. We are gonna let some good players walk and count on the up and coming guys more.

Listening to his interviews I doubt it dude. He's going to play A LOT and he mentioned numerous times that the Broncos were really his top choice even before they contacted him.

I don't know about that. I know the plan is for Lattimer to become the number 2 and replace Decker, but I don't think that happens until 2015. I'd expect our starting trio to be DT, Sanders and Welker in the slot. Next season I'd expect Sanders to move to the slot and Lattimer to take over on the outside.

Welkers health is not something to bank on. He is likely to miss some time this year (hoping not) so both Sanders and Lattimer will likely get some time...Caldwell too.

That is the most logical scenario but there is the chance Latimer will excel this year and see the field more than expected at the expense of Sanders' playing time.

That'll be tough. Sanders experience will most likely keep him on the field - and the time Latimer is already missing.

All 4 on the field at the same will be nice...

Then you have Julius Thomas...

I don't understand why it's a forgone conclusion that Welker returns after this season. He didn't exactly break the bank, and his chemistry with Manning is big.

In fact I could see him returning to a team friendly deal.

I think he works well with Elway and makes the FO better.
That must have been the reason why he was fired right? Because he brought in so many of Cleveland's better players.

I just would have liked to seen a little more from Heckert than just recycling Cleveland garbage into Denver in Moffet who then promptly retires.

I think the concern is more about his health. He has had some tough concussions. Two last season.

He has been working out with Jeffry. He switched from doing pounds kilos. It's a mental thing I guess... And his gains are sky high.

Yeah, I've been thinking the same thing. No way wes commands a lot of money on the free agent market as a 34 year old receiver with head issues. Add to that that he only wants to play with an elite qb like manning/Brady, and it seems likely to me that he takes a team friendly deal for 3 or 4 mil. Stokely was still able to thrive in a manning offense at age 37...I see no reason to let go of wes before manning retires.

Does the buck stop at Heckert or Elway? If you are going to blame him for players that were signed solely to fill in a OTC roster with no real expectations to make an already talented roster, then you have to give him credit for the high profile signings too(Ware, Ward, Talib,Montgomery, & Sanders), because the same department is responsible.

All that said, every personnel move has Elway's blessings. Case in point, Moffet was part of a trade in Aug. '13 because of a rash of injuries. The FO was a bit desperate at that point. No way this gets done without Elway's approval & blessings. You don't like it? Blame him then.

Last point: Heckert was replaced with another purge & regime change. Cleveland seems to hire & fire a lot of FO personnel. I could be wrong, but I don't think his replacement is still with the team.

Keep DT at $10M per year, or keep Franklin/Welker at $10M per year? Tough decision for Elway.

What is this based on? Ted Washington and Casey Hampton were huge and remained relatively healthy. Washington played DT til he was almost 40
