Staying Home In Miami Worth $100,000 To Broncos' D.J. Williams
Comment March 19 Denver Post
"What price, home? For Broncos inside linebacker D.J. Williams, a few more months at his offseason home in Miami is worth $100,000. Williams has decided to spend his offseason conditioning in Miami instead of participating with the Broncos' voluntary program at the team's headquarters. Had Williams attended 90 percent of the team's training sessions, he would have earned a $100,000 bonus. "D.J. has been working out hard since the season ended," said Tony Fleming, Williams' agent. "He's been in touch with the Broncos about his plans. This isn't some kind of message or anything. He just has a good workout program going at home." Williams can afford the comforts of home because he recently ..."

Broncos' Quinn Gets To Work At Dove Valley
Comment March 19 Denver Post
"Forgive Brady Quinn if he hasn't familiarized himself with all of the Denver hotspots yet. Since arriving in Denver on Monday in a trade with the Cleveland Browns, Quinn has been spending much of his time in the weight room, training room and video room at the Broncos' Dove Valley headquarters. "I've been watching a lot of film and getting into the playbook. There is a lot of familiarity with the offense and what I've been accustomed to," Quinn said. Quinn held his first press conference with Denver reporters today. The start of his press conference was delayed — by Quinn's choice — to watch the end of NCAA basketball tournament game between Quinn's alma mater Notre Dame and Old Dominion. ..."

Time Has Come For Broncos' 2009 Draftees To Produce
Comment March 19 Denver Post
"For all the older, veteran players the Broncos have picked up in Josh McDaniels' first two free-agent classes, the success of the 2010 Broncos might have more to do with a group of guys still in their early 20s. Attention, 2009 draft class: You're up. "If you're going to be on this team, we need everyone to give their all. The first year's out of the way; nothing's new anymore," veteran tight end Daniel Graham said Thursday. "They know what to expect in the offseason. They know how long the season is going to be. We expect a real big change from all of them." The Broncos made 10 selections in the draft last April, including five picks in the first two rounds, an almost-unheard-of haul of ..."

Broncos, Others Should Give Barnes A Look
Comment March 17 Denver Post
"Can't say Freddie Barnes is a can't-miss receiver, but Barnes deserves a long look by the Broncos, or any team in the market for help on the outside by the time the NFL draft rolls around. Barnes was not at the league's scouting combine last month, and there really is no explanation for that given some of the players who did far less than he did who were invited. Barnes caught 155 passes last season. Yes, that's the math: 155 catches in 13 games for Bowling Green. That's 39 more catches than any player in any division of NCAA football. He had at least 10 catches in nine games, had nine 100-yard games and scored a touchdown in each of his last eight games. He scored 17 touchdowns in those ..."

Jones Ready To Make Impact At Corner
Comment March 17 Denver Post
"For all the stability in the Broncos' defense in 2009 — they had the same 11 starters in 10 games — they never quite got settled at the nickel cornerback spot. And despite two young corners on the roster, Alphonso Smith and Tony Carter, the Broncos showed they want more competition at the position when they signed free agent Nate Jones, a seven-year veteran previously with the Dolphins. Smith, Carter, veteran Ty Law and Jack Williams, released when Law signed in November, all saw time as the Broncos' fifth defensive back. "I guess they feel they have some needs somewhere that I can help them with, so that's why I'm here," said Jones, who signed this month. "I think they like my ..."

Broncos' Champ Bailey Adapts To New Teammates
Comment March 16 Denver Post
"As the Broncos' elder statesman — or at least the player who has been here the longest — Champ Bailey has seen plenty of players come and go at Dove Valley. Still, the star cornerback couldn't help but have mixed emotions last week when the Broncos signed an entirely new starting defensive line but released two starters from the 2009 defense. "That's the way it is. You've got to adapt, plain and simple," Bailey said. "I didn't want Andra Davis to go, plain and simple. But the next day, I'm adapting to a new situation." Bailey got his first look at some of his new teammates Monday when the Broncos began their voluntary offseason conditioning program. Bailey said he was most excited to see ..."

Quinn: Broncos "A Very Talented Team"
Comment March 16 Denver Post
"The Broncos acquisition of Brady Quinn became official Monday when the quarterback passed the team's physical. Quinn was acquired Sunday from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for running back Peyton Hillis, a sixth-round pick in the 2011 draft and a conditional draft pick in 2012 that is tied to Quinn's playing time. "It's a very talented team. It's a great city. It's got great tradition," Quinn said of the Broncos during a conference call with the Denver Media today. "There's a lot to look forward to." Quinn delivered Mark McGwire-like responses to inquiries about his first three NFL seasons in Cleveland."

Broncos' Intent Is To Win With Quinn
Comment March 16 Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla
"When the Broncos make their next Super Bowl appearance, the starting quarterback will be Brady Quinn. And the time for Denver to rejoin the NFL elite could be closer than we think. So don't let the dawn of a football revival at Dove Valley catch you crying those same stale tears for Mike Shanahan, Jay Cutler and the ghosts of Broncos past. Maybe this Josh McDaniels guy knows a little about football after all. Let me be the first to state these truths that will soon become self-evident to doubting Broncomaniacs everywhere: There are good reasons why Quinn is a young player McDaniels so coveted that he kept up the pursuit for a year until getting his man. Kyle Orton will lose his job as a ..."

Broncos' Quinn, McDaniels Have Common Thread In Weis
Comment March 16 Denver Post
"There has been a long, linear connection between Broncos coach Josh McDaniels and his new quarterback, Brady Quinn. Between these connected dots was Charlie Weis, a big guy who nevertheless didn't get in the way. In 2004, McDaniels was moved from New England Patriots defensive assistant to quarterbacks coach, where he worked directly under Weis, the team's offensive coordinator. Today, McDaniels refers to Weis as one of his mentors. After 2004, Weis went to Notre Dame, where he became the head coach, with Quinn already waiting. McDaniels, meanwhile, took control of the Patriots' offense. Weis prospered in his two seasons with Quinn, as did his quarterback, while McDaniels guided the ..."

Broncos Cut Quarterback Chris Simms
Comment March 16 Denver Post
"A day after trading for quarterback Brady Quinn from Cleveland, the fallout continued Monday as the Broncos cut backup QB Chris Simms. Simms, who played in parts of two games last season, was set to make $2.54 million next season. In Week 11, Simms started against the Chargers in Denver. But he was benched after only three series in favor of an injured Kyle Orton. It was just Simms' second start since 2006. The Broncos now have three quarterbacks on their roster: Orton, Quinn and second-year pro Tom Brandstater. Orton, who's in Hawaii attending the NFL union meetings, said on Sunday after the Quinn trade: "We've made a lot great moves this offseason and this is another one. (Quinn) is a ..."

Notre Dame Is X-Factor In Quinn Trade
Comment March 15 Denver Post
"The truth of the matter is this: New Bronco Brady Quinn is not a former Cleveland Browns quarterback in so much as he's a former Notre Dame quarterback. That explains much of the Mile High hysteria surrounding Sunday's trade. Because when it comes to Golden Domers, there is no middle ground. You either love the Fighting Irish or you love to hate them. Just like Duke basketball and Coach K. If Quinn was from, say, UCLA, there wouldn't be near the buzz surrounding a QB who started a grand total of 12 games in three NFL seasons. And let's face it, for all of the hype surrounding Notre Dame QBs, their success in the NFL has been decidedly mixed. The one Irish quarterback who didn't make any ..."

Stars Absent From Broncos Workouts
Comment March 15 Denver Post
"Most of the Broncos returned to Dove Valley for the first day of the team's voluntary offseason workout today. But to veteran cornerback Champ Bailey, now the team's longest-tenured player, what was most noticeable was the players who aren't here. All five of the Broncos restricted free agents failed to show for the first day of weight training and conditioning work. And several starters from the 2009 team were recently cut or not re-signed were absent, too. "I noticed not as many guys are here as normal. I guess with a lot of guys being restricted, and new guys coming in, not everyone's going to be here," Bailey said. "That's just another thing we have to deal with." Restricted free ..."

Trading Hillis Was Easy Call For McDaniels
Comment March 15 Longmont Times-Call
"The Denver Broncos made their first big offseason splash on Sunday.Well, it might be big. Fan favorite Peyton Hillis - who never really stood a chance with head coach Josh McDaniels - was shipped to Cleveland in exchange for quarterback Brady Quinn, who, just three years ago, was a first-round draft pick.It's a win-win deal for Denver. Quinn grew up a Browns fan and was thrilled when Cleveland picked him 22nd overall in 2007, but he has been a bona fide bust for a dreadful team. At worst, he ought to be an upgrade over Chris Simms as the Broncos' backup quarterback. At best, the change of scenery will help Quinn, who is only 25, develop into the star quarterback many thought he could be. ..."

Browns Trade Brady Quinn To Denver For Running Back Hillis, Two Draft Picks
Comment March 15 Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Brady Quinn, who was traded by the Browns Sunday to Denver, admitted in an exclusive phone interview with The Plain Dealer that he has no idea why the new regime turned the team over to 35-year-old Jake Delhomme instead of him. "It's really hard to try to figure out what it is," said Quinn. "[Mike] Holmgren has had a lot of success, and I'm sure the decisions he's making he's got a lot of reasons for them and he's doing what he wants to with the team. It's not really for me to question. I'm a Bronco and I couldn't be happier heading over to Denver." Quinn, the Browns' first-round pick in 2007, was traded to the Broncos for backup running back Peyton Hillis, a sixth-round pick in 2011 and a ..."

Broncos' Restricted Free Agents To Miss Workouts
Comment March 15 Denver Post
"In his first day as a Broncos quarterback, Brady Quinn will not be introduced to at least five of his new teammates. The Broncos' five restricted free agents — quarterback Kyle Orton, outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil (who sacked Quinn four times in the second game of last season), receiver Brandon Marshall, guard Chris Kuper and tight end Tony Scheffler — will not be in attendance for the first day of the team's voluntary offseason conditioning program today. Orton's absence, though, is different from the others. He is the Broncos' player representative and is attending the NFL union meetings in Hawaii. He is planning to join the team's offseason program Friday. The Broncos' other four ..."

Broncos Put Heat On Orton By Deal For Quinn
Comment March 15 Denver Post columnist Dave Krieger
"The Broncos acquired a celebrated name at a celebrated position Sunday, making it pretty clear they're not satisfied with what they have. Whether Brady Quinn is the solution is another question entirely. To call him the Anna Kournikova of pro football would be too strong, but there are similarities. His looks have made him a bigger player in the commercial endorsement world than on the football field, where he has struggled since turning pro three years ago. But lots of young quarterbacks struggle, and Quinn struggled on a particularly lousy team, so there's still a chance he'll become a serviceable NFL player. He has a knowledgeable booster in Charlie Weis, his coach at Notre Dame and the ..."

Broncos' Orton Believes He's Still The Starting Quarterback
Comment March 15 Denver Post
"Kyle Orton views Brady Quinn as company. Not a threat. Before the Broncos acquired Quinn, a quarterback from Notre Dame and the Cleveland Browns, in a trade Sunday for running back Peyton Hillis and two draft picks, Orton talked with coach Josh McDaniels. At his offseason-opening news conference today, McDaniels is expected to reinforce Orton as the Broncos' starting quarterback in 2010. "I have talked to Josh and I will keep that private, but I do have total confidence that I'm the guy there," Orton said Sunday night from Hawaii, where he is attending the NFL Players Association meetings as the Broncos' union representative. "Just like every year, I'm going in to try to earn my starting ..."

Broncos Acquire Brady Quinn From Cleveland For Hillis, Draft Picks
Comment March 15 Denver Post
"Broncos coach Josh McDaniels has said he likes what quarterback Kyle Orton did in the team's offense last season. He has said Orton "does a lot of the things we expect well." But Sunday, his actions spoke more loudly than those words as the Broncos traded for quarterback Brady Quinn. Orton, with his words, said he liked the move. "We've made a lot great moves this offseason, and this is another one," Orton said from Hawaii, where he is attending the NFL Players Association meetings. "He's a great player, and I'll be happy to work with him." Denver sent fullback Peyton Hillis and two draft picks to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for Quinn in a move that will add plenty of competition for ..."

Broncos Acquire Quinn From Cleveland For Hillis, Draft Picks
Comment March 14 Denver Post
"The Broncos have acquired quarterback Brady Quinn from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for running back Peyton Hillis, a sixth-round pick in 2011 and a 2012 conditional pick, which will be tied to Quinn's playing time. Kyle Orton remains the Broncos' starting quarterback. The trade is contingent on physicals for Quinn and Hillis. Quinn did have a season-ending foot injury last season. Quinn's departure comes one day after the Browns agreed to terms with free agent Jake Delhomme on a two-year contract. Quinn went 3-9 in 12 starts for Cleveland, which drafted him in the first round of the 2007 draft."

Broncos' Brandon Marshall Much Deeper Than Any Caricature
Comment March 14 Denver Post columnist Dave Krieger
"It has been so easy, turning Brandon Marshall into a caricature. Bad guy. Bad teammate. Hothead. Diva. And worse, sorta kinda responsible for teammate Darrent Williams' death. After all, he admitted escalating the nightclub confrontation with east Denver gang members that preceded the drive-by shooting of Williams' limousine. That's well known. If you listened to all the testimony in the Williams murder trial, you know it's also simplistic. In addition to the role Marshall and his cousin played in the back-and-forth that night, there was also a recurring territorial dispute between the Denver Crips and Williams' friends, an aspiring rap group from Fort Worth, Texas. Did Willie Clark pursue ..."

Broncos Build Up For Fantastic Finish
Comment March 14 Denver Post columnist Mike Klis
"Wherever Jamal Williams goes during the offseason conditioning program, Broncos players should follow. If big Jamal walks into the weight room on Day One of the offseason program Monday with a 30-pound barbell in one hand and a slice of double-sausage pizza in the other, the Broncos should make sure the nearest Domino's outlet has access cards to the building. If the 348-pound Williams should faint following his first series of 40-yard sprints in altitude this week, then the Broncos' equipment guys need to order up smelling salts by the pallet. Williams was a longtime San Diego Charger. Nobody knows how to finish like the Chargers. They may labor at the start. But those Chargers know how ..."

Brandon Marshall Plan Not Right Course For Miami Dolphins
Comment March 14 Miami Herald columnist Armando Salguero
"Brandon Marshall is a one-man receiving corps, and that's not a metaphor if you ask the Indianapolis Colts because last year, against the NFL's second-best team, Marshall caught 21 passes in one game. One game. The Dolphins wide receiving corps -- all five guys combined -- did not catch 21 passes in any game in 2009. Marshall has caught all variety of passes the past three seasons, from the jumping, one-handed variety against the Giants, to the downfield bombs against the Redskins -- 307 receptions in all. It is an impressive football resume Marshall can carry with him on job interviews, and that's the reason NFL fans in a variety of receiver-starved outposts, including Miami, lust after ..."

Champ Bailey Still On Top Of Broncos' Salary Pile
Comment March 13 Denver Post
"It pays to be the Champ. As Champ Bailey's once-record, seven-year contract with the Broncos enters its final months, the left cornerback on Tuesday collected one more $3 million roster bonus. Running back Knowshon Moreno ($3.775 million), linebacker D.J. Williams ($3 million) and receiver Brandon Stokley ($500,000) were other Broncos players whose bonuses were exercised this week. Bailey's contract has held up through the test of time. Even though NFL salaries have soared since the Broncos negotiated the deal for their star cornerback after his trade from Washington in exchange for running back Clinton Portis before the 2004 season, Bailey will collect $13 million in salary ($9.5 million) ..."

If nothing else it sounds like Quinn is putting in a big effort in the early stages.

It also sounds like we paid DJ too much money!

Broncos blurb: http://www.profootballweekly.com/201...ite-49ers-fans

"After the surprising decision to release Andra Davis, who was a key contributor on defense last season, the Broncos have a vacancy to fill in the starting lineup at inside linebacker. While Denver could address the position early in the draft, sources expect Spencer Larsen to get a shot at winning the job in training camp. Larsen is not a well-known player outside of Denver, but he plays a variety of roles on the team, which has made him a valuable backup. He can play fullback or inside 'backer and helps out on special teams."

Cool beans, loves me some Spencer Larsen, I was wondering if he'd get a shot.
