Default Sirius: Broncos likely to have interest in Chris McAlister, other FA's mentioned

Sirius NFL Radio reported that with the release of Dre' Bly, the Broncos are expected to have interest in former Ravens CB Chris McAlister. McAlister had some of his best seasons under former Ravens DC and new Broncos DC Mike Nolan. Nolan likes bigger, physical CB's such as McAlister, Walt Harris and Nate Clements and McAlister would be a better fit for that scheme than Bly. Considering his age and medical history, it's also possible McAlister could come at a price tag comfortable to the team.

However, Sirius also reported don't be surprised if the Broncos also have interest in Rams CB Ronald Bartell Jr. who fits that mold as well. In addition, they mentioned the names of Patriots S James Sanders, DE Mike Wright and DE Kenny Smith; Bears S Mike Brown; Buccaneers S Jermaine Phillips; Jets DE C.J. Mosley; Falcons NT Grady Jackson; and Cardinals NT Gabe Watson as guys the Broncos may have interest in.

Love Mike Brown and Jermaine Phillips, but no Atogwe mention? He's getting mildly overrated, but still the best of the S crop.

No Big name guys there...What about Bart Scott? And Shane Lechler, I wouldn't be surprised if we go after him, he would be a major upgrade on ST's.

However, hilife also reports based on the information provided by Sirius the Broncos may have interest in every defense player in FA.

He doesn't play patty cake until the 1 yrd line before committing to tackle. And his salary will be much less then Bly.

They've been pretty high on Atogwe, had him on as a guest the other day and called him the best S on the FA market. Maybe they figure he's out of our price range?

No they're very credible. Most of their info comes from agents and front office guys. All of these names make a lot of sense from a scheme and financial standpoint.

I think alot of the "analysts" are expecting him to be franchised soon.
Just one more day man. One more day.....

James Sanders would be a solid pick up. Bartell would be a steal! That guy has skills, and hes young. Wouldnt suprise me if STL just opted to pay him the extra 2 MIL over what Otogwe would get franchised at, and they just franchised Bartell for a year.
NT Gabe Watson would be great too, and with the franchising of Dansby, and bringing back Warner, maybe DEN could actually steal him for a 3rd. That would be nice, but kinda a pipe dream.

Otogwe would get Madieu Williams money 5 years, 36-38 MIL range. Something like this.

Chris Mac is twice the player that Bly ever was. Don't know anything about his injury, but he's as good a football player as they can get in free agency.

Like to see Gabe Watson on the list... I'm all about finding players on the D-Line and building outward.

If with this kind of cap room we can't fit a S in (very cheap position $ wise), then Colonel Xanders needs to get the **** out of town.

IMO, follow the BB/Parcell method to building a D
Kick out the old and build from the front to back.
Speciality players like S come last in his rebuild methodogy

MIA went from 30th in scoring D in '07 to 9th in '08 they cleaned out Z Thomas, J Taylor . Brought in Merling and Langston and Ferguson to bolster the front 3. Brought a aggressive style of defense
Were not afraid to blitz and stop playing DB 10 yard off.
Released the hounds so to speak. Turnovers galore

Mike Brown is ALWAYS injured. Even going back to his Nebraska days. He makes Boss Bailey look like Cal Ripken.

One concern I have is any team that has signed a bunch of free agents in one offseason usually sucks the following season. Does anyone have an example of a team that signed a bunch of new starters and was good the next year?
