    It must have been the only way Bowlen would agree to us drafting a defensive tackle since one killed his parents.

        I just got done reading that article and liked this quote from Del Rio

        "From an initial scouting look, we wondered if he was not necessarily a fit for us," Del Rio said. "The way I started, I said: 'This is the kind of guy that Pittsburgh takes, and he plays for the next 10 years. They just had a guy like that who just retired.' "

          That can't be right.

            I love having versitile players. I am enjoying the direction the Broncos are working towards.

            I wonder if there will be any WR pick ups via trade/cuts. I really hope Eric Page makes a nice splash for the team.

              not keen on him being a DE in base packages as that means Ayers is off the field and we have a hole at one of the DT spots.
              but i did expect us to use him as a 3-4 end in some spots.

                    Hopefully they can develop Wolfe. Right now sounds like he's a tweener who they want to end up at DT

                        Putting Wolfe at DE would make little to no sense! Elway said when they drafted him that he would play DT. I guess Del Rio wasn't a part of him being drafted?!?!

                          From the linked article.

                          It was Jack Del Rio who became the influential voice. Unemployed when he showed up at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., during Super Bowl week, Del Rio kept giving standout marks to a relentless, tough kid named Derek Wolfe. This was while Del Rio was still an unemployed NFL coach. He interviewed with Broncos head coach John Fox in Alabama for the team's defensive coordinator job.

                            Yeah not really sure why a more dominant inside tackle would play end which causes our starting DE to sit out.

                            However Del Rio has seen the guy first hand so I'll trust him, for now

                              Yep makes sense. Lot's of us were saying this is bad news for Ayers.
