Nothing ground-breaking, but good to know who is still out there.

I'd be interested in Lewis and Crowell at LB (although we may just draft now), Olshansky at DE, and another CB (McFadden would be nice)

I wish the front office would get something worked out with Casey Wiegmann on a new deal.

Center is kinda important.

The longer FA period goes, the less the contracts are gonna be. The more money already spent means FA's still available are gonna probably have to settle for less then they had hoped. I'd love to snag Olshansky for a smallish contract. As most of know, DL takes time to learn at the NFL level. Olshansky will be more ready day 1 then who ever we draft. We still need to draft DL and alot of them but I would feel more secure with adding some quality DE's before the draft.

I'm very surprised to see that Sean Jones (CLE) hasn't gotten much action, at least in the news. I haven't seen any teams even bringing him in for a visit. A lot of free agent charts have him listed as the 3rd best available safety in FA this year, yet he remains out there free for anyone to give him a look. DEN may have addressed the position with Dawkins and Hill for now, but Jones is a young talent that could have and still can give the position some longevity.

Looks like a lot of FA lists have either overstated his talents compared to what GMs and scouts see on film, or his has simply been overlooked thus far.

I still kind of wish we got Jermaine Phillips over Renaldo Hill... or hell even Chris McAlister as a FS.

i want us to bring in Olshansky and maybe Vonnie Holliday also. then we can have 2 guys well versed at the 3-4 end positions and we don't have to worry so much about having to find adequate ends in the draft. and i remain on the bring in Ray Lewis to lead our defense.

Just like Mcree last year, I want Denver to avoid this guy at all costs. I'm sure that there are still ardent Igor-haters like me around, but we're less vocal.

...I hope...?

If Igor is on our roster come TC, I hope Nalen shows up out of the blue just to put that little brat in his place.

All nonsense aside, he is a solid 3-4 DE, who happened to hate Tom Nalen and Matt Lepsis...being that both are gone...Will Igor make the Broncos defensive line better? Yeah, so why not bring him in and throw him into the mix.

i hate Igor, just as much as i hate Ray Lewis, but if both wanted to come to Denver, i am all for it. they would be really good assets to the defense. and after a few games in Denver uniforms the hate will fade

I think Olshansky would make an excellent LDE in the 3-4/ Plus he's young, and not that expensive.
