I certainly wasn't implying that.....but you can never have too much depth. I was also under the impression that he was our center of the future......Weigman (sp) is not going to be around forever.

I think they're tentatively planning to move Ben over to center when Casey goes .... it sure looked that way at camp and in preseason.

I think that was just for depth purposes this year. Clearly, they were not enamored with our young centers. Actually, I think we will be looking for our center of the future in the offseason.

i dont think ben gets resigned after this season. this is the last year of his contract and i dont think they will be bringing him back.

Kuper will be getting some big $$$$ from the Broncos in the near future. if not someone else will pay him the big bucks whenever hes a FA. we need to lock him up

I think Ben is a bit better player than you guys think ... true, his strength is in the ZBS, but smallish guys can be centers.

We are transitioning to a more power running game and I don't think Hamilton really fits. Plus, he has had some injury issues starting to pop up. We already have his replacement in Olsen.

True about Olsen, I've posted that lots of times ... but what about replacing Weigmann?

I think Kaylore's love affair with him had guys overvaluing him. There is a reason why we are fans and coaches are coaches. Two coaches don't think he is roster spot worthy.

Kuper seems to fit the mold of what Mcdaniels looking for. Bigger more physical then what Broncos used to have.

Kuper IMO plays hurt, plays hard, plays good. If Broncos don't re-sign him I would be surprised and very dissapointed.

His footwork improved so much from his first yr. IMO no olineman we ever had improved so much from his first yr. I really didn't think he looked very promising to start off but he must have really worked his ass off.

Broncos will keep him, its a no brainer.

I don't think next year's starting center is currently on the roster.
