Default Scheffler Next

Does anyone have access to ESPN insider? What's the rumor on Scheffler?

He could be gone on draft day.

Earlier this week, when asked about his thoughts on Jay Cutler officially being on the trading block, Denver Broncos tight end Tony Scheffler told the Denver Post, "I'm not happy about it." When asked to respond yesterday to the news that one of his best friends on the team had been traded to the Chicago Bears, Scheffler told the Post, "Good for Jay. We'll see how it turns out."

Strangely enough, Scheffler may get a closer look at "how it turns out" than he realizes. Among the teams rumored to be on the hunt for a pass-catching tight end this offseason are the Buffalo Bills. While it would be over a 500-mile journey from Orchard Park, N.Y., to Chicago, he'd be closer than if he stayed in Denver. A report by Pro Football Weekly from last week indicated that the Broncos were entertaining offers for Scheffler and although he wasn't officially on the trading block, he was a player that another team could acquire if the price was right.
The Bills are among the teams that hosted Oklahoma State's Brandon Pettigrew for a visit earlier this month, a player who is expected to land somewhere in the first round of the draft. But the Bills have arguably a greater need for a pass-rusher, and it might make more sense to try to swing a trade for Scheffler and take a defensive end like Aaron Maybin or Everette Brown at No. 11.
A trade partner that would put Scheffler even closer to Cutler is the Detroit Lions, as a trip from Detroit to Chicago would be under 300 miles. Both the Lions and Broncos are draft pick rich right now in the first round, but the Lions have a need at tight end (among many other positions) and according to the reports, Scheffler does not fit into Broncos coach Josh McDaniels' offensive scheme. The Lions would likely not move one of their first-round picks in exchange for just Scheffler, but their second- or third-round pick could be available. Swapping between some of the mid first-round picks that the teams possess is also a possibility to grease the wheels of a Scheffler shuffle. Any team looking for a cheaper but less impressive option at tight end will also be kicking George Wrighster's tires in the coming weeks. According to the Florida Times-Union, the Jacksonville Jaguars will be releasing Wrighster today, a fact that seems to please Wrighster, who has written on his blog that "the past was bright, but the future will be incandescent!"

The Broncos are probably looking at Kellen Winslow's contract and are starting to realize just how favorably Schef's numbers line up to his when you average them over a 16 game season. It's scary.

If we could get a second for him that you have to jump on it. But I highly doubt it. I could see a third though.

I honestly hope we don't trade him at all...when healthy he's a hell of a weapon on offense..i can just see him going to another team and breaking out of his injury bug and thrive and see a big pay day!!

I'm pretty sure this is old news; this rumor surfaced right after Cutler was traded. It's all just speculative.

I hope Scheffler stays. He's signed for cheap, is one of the best TEs in the game when it comes to running that deep seam route. With an aging Graham with a high cap value where are we going to get the next pass catching TE like Scheff?

With a guy like Orton we need to surround him with solid talent and taking away a guy like Scheff when we don't really have a long term number 3 WR is unnecessary.

This is an old rumor. I'd be surprised if he's traded unless it's a 2nd. I highly doubt any team would trade that for him, and anything less than that isn't worth our time.

Scheff cannot stay healthy for a season, I would take a 2nd o 3rd which ever we get in a heart beat.

But is any rumor of atlanta being one of the trading partner ? Because they are looking for a pass catching TE as well.

Actually I think what could happen is the Lions send us #20 and #33 and we send to the Lions #18 and Scheffler.

That's the only way I could see us getting #33. Otherwise we probably have to settle for their 3rd (#65 I think) or a package of swapped picks... they get 18, 48 and Scheffler, we get 20, 33, and 65 type of thing.

Dont get me wrong, if scheff can stay here and play even 12 games here i am fine with him being here.

I do not like the windslow guy... and dont care if he plays or sits in side and screams :-) all i care about is our broncos and what can benefit us if we choose to keep scheff on the roster and what we should get if we trade him

I am sure the lions would give us the number 1 overall, but from what I've heard, nobody wants it

i imagine this is posted somewhere round here but either way:

The Denver Post reports Broncos TE Tony Scheffler has returned to working out with his personal trainer Steve Hess, who is the Nuggets' strength and conditioning coach. For now, Broncos HC Josh McDaniels is not publicly making a big deal of Scheffler missing the team's offseason conditioning program. Although Scheffler has stated he's not happy his team traded QB Jay Cutler, the tight end is expected to return for the team's first mini-camp, April 17-19. Scheffler and Cutler are good friends and share the same agent, Bus Cook.

Orton seemed to use his TE's a lot, so we better think this one through.

More of a function of their conservative offense than Orton loving throwing to TE's.
