Adopt-a-Bronco:
VP John Elway
Default Patriots trade Ellis Hobbs to Eagles for 2 5th Round picks

Just got a text from ESPN.

Hmm, and Hobbs has been a starter for the Pats the last couple years and likely the Eagles want him as insurance for Sheldon Brown and a possible trade involving him at some point. And Hobbs is what? 5'9, just like Alphonso Smith, who the Cutler fans want to call a "midget."

When you're like the Pats and have a pretty good draft record year to year, you can afford to make such moves. Hopefully the Broncos can become this someday too.

Hmm, I'm making this up as I go along but the Eagles want Scheffler, and I'd say Sheldon Brown for Scheffler except we don't really need another CB since we added Goodman plus Smith in the draft.

I would guess most of their starters on offense and defense are guys they drafted.
