Default Broncos Want Old Levi 's

Broncos may pursue Levi Jones

May 6, 2009 3:30 PM

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
Jones

A source close to the situation said the Denver Broncos are one of a handful of teams expressing interest in left tackle Levi Jones, who was cut by Cincinnati on Wednesday.

Denver would only pursue Jones as a backup. The team has Ryan Clady, who earned second-team All-Pro honors as a rookie in 2008. The Broncos are fairly thin at backup tackle.

Jones is a veteran and would be a strong insurance policy. Jones has only played left tackle so Denver would likely only be interested in him as a backup to Clady.

Jones wants to pursue starting jobs. He'd likely be more interested in potential openings in Buffalo or Detroit. If the Denver option becomes appealing to Jones, expect it to be down the road if the starting possibilities dry up.

Don't expect Oakland and Jones to come to an agreement. The Raiders have just signed Khalif Barnes to play left tackle. Jones and Barnes have the same agent.

Weird. though i suppose kicking the tires on a cheap back up option is ok to be an inactive on the 53?

If the price is right, hell yea. I'd assume he could back up either tackle spot.

HUGE insurance policy if it works out. Think about when Lepsis went down and Pears had to start. Let's avoid that situation again, if at all possible.

Would be a good move for depth. Hopefully he'd never have to play though since that would mean injuries of course and just have to use him on the line for field goals and such.

He will have MANY starting opportunities in the league, I doubt he ends up as a back up.
I would love to see him on our right side.

Yeah he isnt gonna come here to be a backup.

Plus I doubt he would even consider backup money.

Sign Levi and see McDaniels trade Clady...

Then watch as all the Shanahan/Cutler haters talk him down...

"he got lucky only given up a .5 a sack... it really should have been 10. I saw Graham protecting him a lot and remember that holding call in the preseason?"

"HE AIN'T NO MATT LEPSIS!"

"Clady has never shown that he can carry the running game on his back... he's not a franchise LT."

"He looks like too much of a tyranosaurus to me... I wish he would do some curls. I DON'T LIKE HIM!"

We laugh but we've seen this posse turn on everything else this offseason, Ryan might as well be the next.

BPC,

Would love to see him sign with us....but he is still a quality starter and will not want to back up Clady.

This is pretty dead on.

You forgot the part where Clady ends up being portrayed as a Crybaby.

The difference is, Clady... like most true pros, would probably realize it trades were part of the game. He wouldn't hide under his agent''s skirt, and force his way out of town like a a little b****.

So, let's not mix real Broncos with douche-bags who didn't want to be here because they got a widdle emotional owie.

(Oh, and wanted a giant new contract for no apparent reason.)
