Default anyone interested in seeing Greg Ellis as a Bronco?

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...ing-to-an-end/

It would create even more of a numbers log-jam @ OLB--but who do we have that we KNOW can play either OLB spot? I'd like us to field Ellis and Doom/Ayers on the other side----

I guess it will be a sign of how we like our guys if we go get him...I would actually like it if we passed, then maybe they are liking what we have..

I read on another board that the reason he wants to leave Dallas is because he doesn't want to be a 3-4 OLB. He wants to be an end in a 4-3.

How about DJ, Woodyard, Reid, Green, Boss ... not to mention Jarvis and Crowder?

Don't just criticize and laugh at Boss please, that's getting old. He started 35 games the 3 years before he got here.

So on average he only misses slightly more than a quarter of the season? In that case...

Moss and Crowder have proven nothing of being able to do anything in this league so far at their natural positions let alone in a new position so i have no faith in them at all. Reid is a career backup who is a question mark. DJ, Woodyard, and Green are going to be on the INSIDE in this defense. and of course there's Boss and that needs no explanation.

so once again, we have Ayers and Doom on the outside and behind them garbage and question marks.

Certainly not via trade considering the compensation and the $4.15m salary the Cowboys wanna dump.

We have too many young guys that need game experience.

If we are rebuilding, let's go ahead and rebuild with youth. Ellis would be a fine option, but I would rather go with what we have.

I don't feel like Ellis will be ready to "dominate" as an individual. He needs a good supporting cast to be worth his paycheck. Let's just keep rotating our young guys through till we find some "winners."

If we make any more moves out there, I hope it is for some NT prospects. We need more "good" options there. I feel pretty good about our DE competition, and we have several interesting options at OLB.

I'd feel a lot better about our defense if I heard we had an "injury settlement" with Boss Bailey. I have in mind a new tough attitude with our young defense, and Boss just doesn't fit that picture.

Not really interested in Ellis.

I'd love to see us add Vonnie Holliday though.

Holliday makes so much sense ... a true 3-4 DE ... and still unsigned.

He'd be a Jumpy-like two-year rental, but Dawkins is the same thing, and Vonnie has a lot more in the tank than Ellis.

yea i've been clamouring for Holliday since he visited...

we have a solid amount of cap space...

maybe there's something about him we don't know...

3-4 ends are at a premium right now, even Tyson Jackson went 3rd overall....

yet somehow a guy with proven success at 3-4 end is still unsigned?...

i mean, exactly how much is the guy asking for?...

How does one 33 year old player not on a NFL roster have more left in the tank then another 33 year old player on a NFL roster?
