That and a vet MLB wouldn't be a surprising signing.

I'm thinking we can or will lock Franklin up with a Clary like contract. Also I agree R8R aboutthe RB position being a need. I can't help to think Flowers would be a bigger get with the left overs. Even at a one year deal.

Chris Harris interview 104.3 the FAN:

1. I'm 24 getting in to my prime
1. Harris says Wolfe said it felt great to be out there
2. Harris says Rahim is looking good, he just had to get healthy
3. Feels good to get cleats on again, "they wouldn't let me wear cleats for a long time"
4. Glad they have an early bye week
5. Thinks he'll be back to real full strength in October

There are a few guys that lasted and very few that have been worth the huge contract and were big fat slobs. I'm just not a big fan of giving a big fat slob a ton of cash for long term.

October? So what's that mean, more Carter/Webster on the field? Roby at the 2?

I heard the same interview. It sounds like he plans to be in there from the get go. The comment probably deserves some context. The radio guys were asking him what happens if his wife goes into labor and Denver is playing on the road (baby due end of Oct). He said he'd probably have to play because he should be fully 100% by then.

What's with Peyton Manning carrying a green football during practice?

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, always looking for some edge, was carrying around a weird looking green football during OTA practice on Wednesday, and even from the weight room afterward.

What's the deal with that?

“That’s Denver Broncos offensive business," Manning said, according to USA Today's Lindsay Jones.

No, really.

“Like I said, that’s official Denver Broncos offensive business, right? It’s kind of an A and B conversation and you can C your way out of it,” Manning said.

Huh. Must be a super-secret mission. Demaryius Thomas was also carrying one of the balls, covered by green Lycra, around in practice.

It turns out, it's to reduce fumbles. The Broncos lost 16 fumbles last season, most in the NFL. They had this happen too, on the first play of the Super Bowl (although it's not clear if a green football can help reduce crowd noise):


The stretchy Lycra fabric is surely more slippery than the textured leather on a NFL football, making it harder to hold on to it. Having the green cover is just a twist in the tried-and-true method of having a player carry the ball around everywhere to enforce ball security. No word on if defensive players tried to knock it out as Manning and Thomas headed to math class after lunch.

"We're making an emphasis from Day One on ball security," Broncos coach John Fox told the Denver Post. "We started with two of our better players in Demaryius and Peyton. What better guys to start with?

He plans to start the first game, just doesn't expect to be his "true strong self" until October. Sounds about right.

DT on Sanders -

"Psssshhh Sanders is too fast. He's quick and fast at the same time. You've got some guys who are quick or fast. Wes is quick. Sanders is quick and fast, I think it'll be great for the team, he can go over the top or inside."

I hope not. The Steelers are constantly up against the cap and close to or in cap hell far too frequently.
I like that they keep their players but they also rarely dip heavily into FA.

I would rather the Broncos have their own approach and have teams compared to us.

I meant in regards to letting a promising or even good player go elsewhere when he is due a big payday trusting their own drafting efficiency to replace that player without a ton of drop off. The Steelers had done that for years although not so much recent years.

True, they were very good at that but it did eventually come back to bite them after they started missing in the draft.

I am really warming to Knighton, he is one of the best free agent signings of the current front office and seems like a character.

Agreed if we are going to be like another franchise in terms of the cap usage I'd rather us be more like New England but without the pretentiousness and dickish attitude and behavior

Peyton added 6 fumbles to the total. The most he had was 3 with the Colts.

Imagine how even better this offense could be if they stopped fumbling the ball.

Huh? Mannings in the shotgun most the time. His fumbles weren't from center to QB exchange.

look its hard enough for me to admit that he makes mistakes...so to be honest about it to me in my mind even if its his fault for fumbling or throwing picks the other guy should of been there...Peyton my man Manning cant throw it catch it or pass it off all at the same time...geez....
