Denver Broncos

Trade Orton: Sooner or later, the Broncos have to find out if Tim Tebow is the franchise quarterback. That time might as well be now. New coaches should not waste their honeymoon year trying to win eight games with a bunch of older veterans. Kyle Orton could bring a solid player or a good draft pick to Denver. It will not be hard to find a veteran to backup Tebow and help him learn the pro game. Sooner or later, the Browns should release Jake Delhomme and he can put on a baseball hat for a year and mentor Tebow. Keep in mind, John Elway and John Fox didn't draft Tebow and there is no emotional tie. If Tebow can't do it, the Broncos can draft a new quarterback next year.

Sign a few Panthers: Players typically follow coaches to new destinations. Fox is a players' coach, and some of the quality Carolina Panthers on the free-agent market would fit nicely. DeAngelo Williams would be the Broncos' feature back and defensive end Charles Johnson would give Denver an excellent pass rush by teaming with Elvis Dumervil. The Broncos would expect 20-plus sacks from that defensive end tandem. Both Williams and Johnson are young enough to play out long-term contracts. The Broncos can't wait any longer for Robert Ayers -- who has 1.5 sacks in two years -- to deliver.

Acquire two defensive tackles: The position is a weakness on the Denver roster. It's time for the Broncos to hit free agency for at least one veteran, but two would be even better. In a perfect world, they would add the New York Giants' Barry Cofield and Seattle Seahawks' Brandon Mebane. Cofield is a 27-year-old defensive tackle with good size at 6-foot-4 and 310 pounds. Cofield typically delivers 40 tackles and three to four sacks a season. Mebane, 26, is 6-foot-1 and closer to 315 pounds. Mebane will not have the same numbers as Cofield, but will be disruptive inside and could play more as a "one-technique." Maybe Fox would like to put the Minnesota Vikings' Pat Williams on the nose for a year, although that would fly in the face of a youth movement.

I like Kirwan articles and this is no different. Have ZERO idea why the NFLN doesn't have him doing shows at least once a week and really educating people on everything from personnel groupings to player evaluation.

Looks like yet another "cut and paste from the Mane" article to me.

DeAngelo Williams does not excite me much as a signing.

He has a show on NFL Sirius radio with Tim Ryan. Pretty educational.

Yup, if we landed Williams, Johnson, Cofield AND Mebane and were able to trade Orton for a quality youth corner, I'd be ecstatic.
