Adopt-a-Bronco:

Default Adrian Peterson

Discussed before but time to revisit.

2 round pick to Minnesota for him.

He is on the trading block. Denver's second is practically a 3rd.

Can you imagine having a top 5 HOF RB paired with a top 5 HOF QB?

I know his contract is huge but Denver has a lot of excess fat on this team, hello Colquit and Caldwell.

DARE I SAY, Peterson in Kubiak's zone blocking scheme would rip off 2,000 yards in this system?

Denver could also trade their 1st round pick this year for a higher first round pick next year plus other picks.




Let's win the god damn super bowl next year.

New England should sign him and go ahead and win every super bowl for the next couple years
BB would fleece someone to recoup his 2nd pick

Until I see it I assume Kubes/Shanny tree don't believe in RD 1 RB's or trading #1 pick for a great one.

CJ Anderson, Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman, Juwan Thompson.
Also if we are going to trade for anybody it better be OL/DT/MLB. We have too many holes to bring in another rb, especially one who has a massive contract.
I would have been all for this had it been last year or the year prior.

Anderson is just fine. Need to improve other areas that are more important to this team right now.

One thing we don't need to invest a top pick in is RB. Kubiak has proven it time and again with late picks and FA. Terrell Davis, Olandis Gary, Rueben Drougns, Mike Anderson, Adrian Foster, Justin Forsett. He already has a great RB in CJ anderson, who was productive behind an atrocious line last year. No need to spend 12 Million a year and a second round pick

As good as Peterson is. You find a RB in the draft. 12 mil is too much to swallow with Manning already here.

Hell no. It took him 3 years to find a RB in Arian Foster after going through about 10 of them including Ron Dayne before that.
Even with that find it was Foster's 2nd year in which he broke out into a dynamic RB.
4 seasons of half assing it at RB, missing on picks and trying journeyman or UDFA's.
Draft the damn position, pick the right player and be done with it.
They tried Derrick Ward and Steve Slaton the year after to add depth.
They still then had to draft Ben Tate to shore up depth.
Tate left in FA, Foster got hurt and then they had 4 UDFA's brought in for depth and none of them were worth a ****.

I personally hope this is a result of just not seeing anyone in the earlier rounds that are worth it or the fact that there are other players available that are higher graded - rather than just being a cheap and only drafting lower graded RBs. This is just a stupid mentality.

Since TD - Portis was the best RB that Broncos have had...

RB is the one position we do not need to worry about upgrading. Haven't been this deep that I can remember. Going to the ZBS is only going to help every one of our backs as well and they are cheap.

I would rather see Elway trade the 1st pick for OL if the guy(s) he want's are gone.

Agreed. People assumed the Texans did not draft RB's high.
Houston Texans Draft Picks - RB's under Kubiak
2006
6th Round Wali Lundy - One season with the team
2008
3rd Round Steve Slaton - 1,282 yards as a rookie, 4 seasons with the team.
2010
2nd Round Ben Tate - 942 yards in his rookie season, 4 seasons with the team.

Most of the bargain basement backs they attempted or UDFA's they signed spent a season or less with the team.
Foster is the only UDFA who stuck for multiple seasons and was successful.

If you want a really good RB stable you invest in it.

It's not my money so i'd be ecstatic about this. However, it would feel like even if we won the Super Bowl, we did it with a "borrowed" team. Manning, AP, et al.

One thing I do know, if his price really is a second rounder (plus his contract), i'll be watching closely to see if we get a starter at that pick.

We did it with Gary Zimmerman, Neil Smith, Mark Schlereth, Alfred Williams, Howard Griffith, Michael Dean Perry & Romo in 97' and 98'

Its not being cheap. Its getting value. Nobody is drafting RB early in the draft any more. They have a lower value, and you can get production out of backs later in the draft. Their production depends so much on the OL and the system anyway.

His price tag is a lot but Manning's salary will be coming off the book soon so Denver could redo Peterson's cap number to higher after Manning leaves.

Outside of Terrell Davis none of those guys are Adrian Peterson.

Manning is going on 4 years, how is he a borrowed player?

I would just love to see Denver do something huge.

Denver has boring drafts 95% of the time. I'd be all for an exciting draft for once and do something huge.


Since its PFM last year I think we would be smart to aquire a few more picks next few drafts.
