Default Coin flip involving Jaguars, Bears a big deal to Denver

Coin flip involving Jaguars, Bears a big deal to Denver

The Broncos need the Bears to get motivated. For if ever a team had reason to tank a coin flip, it's the Bears.

As it currently sits, the Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars are tied for the No. 10 overall pick in the April 22-24 draft by virtue of their 7-9 records in 2009.

The Bears already traded their first-round pick to the Broncos as part of the Jay Cutler deal. Essentially, on Friday, the Bears will be flipping for the Broncos. Winner picks No. 10. Loser picks No. 11.

The Bears also traded their second-round pick to Tampa Bay for Gaines Adams, who recently died of heart failure.

The Broncos are expected to take a defensive lineman, a linebacker or possibly a quarterback with their first-round pick this year.

So why do the Bears flip with Jacksonville and not the Broncos? Teams that are tied for a draft pick must alternate with each round. To wit: If the Bears win the flip, they will have pick No. 10 and Jacksonville would select No. 11 in the first round; Jacksonville would have the No. 10 pick in the second round, and the Bears No. 11, and so on.

Heads or tails, the Broncos will neither overly rejoice nor sulk with the results. This is one of those coin flips where the winner may be the loser the difference in guaranteed money between the No. 10 and 11 picks in the NFL slot system is at least $2 million.

Moreno questioned about fight.

Knowshon Moreno was questioned by police this week after the Broncos running back was involved in a bar fight in Athens, Ga.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a University of Georgia freshman student claimed he was knocked unconscious Saturday night by Moreno during an altercation inside the Bourbon Street Bar.

Stephen Anderson, 18, was treated at a local hospital for a concussion and filed the report Monday afternoon after consulting with friends. Anderson admitted he was drunk at the time of the altercation.

A source close to the situation said the investigation is expected to close without charges filed against Moreno, a former Georgia star tailback.

Moreno did not return a phone call from The Denver Post and the Broncos declined comment. Even though Moreno will not be charged, the NFL may review the matter, as it does all situations that fall under its personal conduct policy.

Pick a punter.

The first college player group to test at the combine? Kickers and punters. Not surprisingly, the Broncos had a large contingent of coaches, assistants, scouts and medical personnel here Wednesday.

The Broncos are set at kicker with Matt Prater but they may seek another punter in the late rounds to compete with Mitch Berger, Britton Colquitt and A.J. Trapasso. The punting prospects attending this combine are Michigan's Zoltan Mesko, Virginia Tech's Brent Bowden and Fresno State's Robert Malone.
