Broncos looking for WRs?
10:26
AM ETJabar Gaffney | Broncos Top Email Already without perturbed pass-catcher Brandon Marshall until September 6, the Broncos lost another receiver over the weekend. The Denver Post is reporting that Jabar Gaffney, who followed Josh McDaniels out from Foxboro, has a fractured thumb and could miss "several weeks".

Already thin behind Eddie Royal at receiver, this could force the Broncos to take a look at some of the options in the free agent market, such as Matt Jones or Marvin Harrison. Additionally, there were reports that the Eagles were looking to ship Reggie Brown out of Philly, and the Broncos might inquire about him as well.

I think reggie brown would be awesome, depending on what they are asking for him. Marvin is older but worth a shot. Anything to help kyle.

Harrison would be worthless. Our QB won't be able to get him the ball.

Royal, Stokely, and McKinnely doesn't scare anyone

Marshall just got some leverage.

Let's hope he's too stupid to realize this...

how many freakin' receivers can we keep? If we thought Jones or Harrison were better than what we had in camp, why didn't we go grab them earlier?

We've got Royal, Stokely, Marshall, Gaffney, Jackson, Lloyd, McKinley, and Swift. Even with Gaffney and Marshall out, we've still got 6 solid WRs.

I like Matt Jones...it looked like the switch turned on for him last year after he got arrested in the summer. I guess his legal issues have been keeping him off teams' radars.

Harrison is done.

2 off the top of my head:

1. Suspensions.

2. His terrible case of "the suck"

He is going to be signed for peanuts, so what if he gets suspended.

"The Suck" is still a body - and a rather large one at that. And he used to play QB, you know in case both Simms and Orton are out Week 1

Exactly. I'd rather have Nate Swift than Marvin Harrison.

Really? The point of no return is often defined as being closer to the end than the beginning? Does it really seem that way with this "system"?

Not talking about the system, just trying to win the season opener in 13 days.

PFT is reporting Dexter Jackson got released. He had a lot of fans around here (particularly because he came cheaper but some real fans as well). I'm really surprised they've already given up on him.

Were his hands any good or did he just get hyped for his speed?

I wish we could see McKinley against a first team. He's looked damned good, albeit mostly against 2nd teams.

Funny, injuries at the RB position were an excuse for the Cutler apologists last season. I have a hunch the same people won't accept such excuses for Orton...

Might as well ask the Patriots for Randy Moss since McD loves his ex-player.

You may want to reread what I posted... looks like Orton is out as well.
