  • Sione Fua

    DT added after Vick goes to IR. Anyone know anything about this guy?

    * former Panther, but came in after Fox was already in Denver. Possible that Fox still has connections, this dude was drafted by Hurney who definitely worked with Fox.
    * young guy, only 25
    * 6-2, 308 lbs
    * was asked to move to guard this season in Carolina, cut the following week.

    sounds like a guy they liked in Carolina but couldn't find a roster spot for. could be a great pick-up long-term.

        They were experimenting with him switching to offensive line. He's there version of Ben Garland.

          According to PFF, Fua played 53 snaps this season for a minus-1.5 grade, 256 last season for an atrocious minus-12.4, and a 408 snaps as a rookie for a minus-7.4 grade.

                    I don't understand why Bannan wasn't the first call.

                      To be fair, do we know that he wasn't?

                        So Wolfe and Malik are strictly DE's now? They are certainly better at DE than DT...just curious as this guy better never see the field for us.

                          No, but do you think he'd turn the Broncos down?

                            So yeah, there's that.
                            well, look at #58. He's done a pretty good job this year, no?

                              I have no idea what he is doing, where his head is, and what he wants to do.

                              I have no idea who all they might have contacted.
