Well, it's pretty savvy if you think he's going to perform at a starter level. It's not much money and in theory you don't risk losing him or having to pay him a lot if he plays well.

Broncos sign Haggan to extension

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 9, 2009 12:45 PM ET
When Josh McDaniels arrived in Denver, there wasn't a lot of leftover defensive talent to work with.

One player they have identified as a keeper, however, is outside linebacker Mario Haggan. They quickly promoted him to a starting job on the weak side, and now have extended his contract by adding two years and $3.5 million, including $1.25 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

It's a nice chunk of change for someone who has been a special teamer throughout his career. And it's also a nice bargain for the Broncos if Haggan keeps his starting job for most of the deal.

I like Haggan's story. I would much rather have a team of hard working over-achievers, than spoiled prima-donna malcontents.

I agree LB. I've been saying all offseason since the **** hit the fan that personally I dont care about the name on the jersey anymore as long as they give 100% on every down.

Has he done anything to impress folks round here? I remember a few scoffs in early August when he was placed at the top of the depth chart.

I must say I was surprised, but many on this board, like myself, have no idea what they are looking at when evaluating an NFL player.

How did you feel about Engelberger, just out of curiosity?

(I know that sounds pointed/snide, but I'm honestly just wondering if you had the same thoughts about him or not.)

I have always prefered talentless losers to skilled players. That is what I love about pop warner, it is not about winning, it is about trying your best and fighting.

Success has always been overrated.

This is what our Broncos are becoming. Hopefully he proves he should start still chump change but he's looked slow on a number of plays.

What, as opposed to the incredibly talented collection of DL and linebackers we fielded last year? Not much talent (williams and maybe doom were the exceptions). And the effort level was really sad. They basically laid down and gave up the second half of the year.

I'm not questioning our lack of talent on the defensive side of the ball. I just think it's funny how a lot of people think a hard yet unskilled worker trumps highly skilled talented prima donnas.

So you're going to "prove" that point by comparing Haggan to a rookie learning a new position in a new system?

Sorry, you can't win a SB with 53 Haggans, Englebergers and Foxworths. You CAN win a SB with a dozen or so Marshalls. You just need the right coach and vets to keep them in line.

I heard him talking with Sportsguys during training camp. I like the guy and his attitude. He definately earned the paycheck. Now go out and prove your worth.

... this is laughable that you use this as proof. Marshall on the field will be better then any of our WR's even Royal. Watch McD put Marshall in the game just to confuse and force teams to bracket or move a safety his way. It's been proven!!! Royal is a better player with Marshall on the field.

Haggan, Ayers comparison is stupid I'm not even going to respond

Hopefully Ayers will win starting job at some point this season but Hagan sould be a a good backup that can play either outside or Inside linebacker.
