ehhh.... none of the players are going to be THAT amazing. They wouldn't have been cut otherwise.

That being said, we might be able to pick up some depth at CB or DT

"That amazing" is obviously true...

...but there are situations where over whelming depth forces very capable players into the market. Like Tony suggested, being available isn't as much a knock on Hanson as it is a testament to fielding Aso, Samuel AND DRC

Wasn't Danny Woodhead a waiver wire pickup? He's been pretty good.

LeGarrette Blount was claimed off of waivers after he was waived by Tennessee. he rushed for 1007 yards in 13 games.

i approve of how the Broncos have handled the waiver wire. I know we are pretty thin, but no reason to take the cap hit when we will be sub par this year anyway. (sub par, not winning a playoff game)

I'll never understand the "we're bad so let's not try to improve at all!" concept...

When it rains, where it rains gets wet. I know. Totally surprising.

Think he was an offseason FA pickup from the niners but not sure. I thought though he went to San Fran from NY? then when Shanny came here Shanny signed him.

No joke.

Did anyone else see how ridiculously thin the roster is? When the starters go out, it looks like we're sending a team of Electric Football figurines out there and expecting the field to get hit by lightning to turn them on.
