    If I'm Denver I offer him a non-exclusive franchise tag. He's free to negotiate with other teams under that scenario and should they sign him, we would be due two first-round draft picks. If nobody signs him, he gets the one year tender. Win/win to me.
    The odds of drafting a Top-5 overall defensive player with either of those picks are just about 0.

    I think Elway had a vision of the Broncos becoming relevant again as they were 36-44 (.450) the previous 5 seasons with zero playoff appearances. the team was mired in mediocrity regardless of who the coach was, or the players were.

    Elway looked at the team objectively and implemented his plan to restore the Broncos to where they are now.......

    He's talking about McDaniels. He had to get his stench, his bull**** Patriot cheating mentality and the locker rooms low morale, lack of trust in the front office attitude out of Denver as quickly as possible.

    Oh just like any other NFL player? You don't say!

    Wow. This thread is full of stupidity and ****. From inaccuracy to just plain making bull**** up.

    The WORST locker room players from the past 5-6 years on the Broncos were all from Shanahan. Let's make that clear.

    Not really. At the same time I wouldn't be particularly angry if the Broncos traded him away if they decide he is too risky to re-sign.

    There is a limit on the number of times a player can be tagged.

    The biggest one, IMO, was Tebow. He certainly didn't mean to be anything but a positive - of that, I have no doubt. But look what he did to the fan base. He is the most polarizing player I've ever seen - at least, in a Broncos uniform. Do you honestly think there wasn't at least some of that in the locker room? I don't think anyone probably hated him. But I guarantee there were guys that got tired of him - would probably roll their eyes, everytime they heard him give an interview. And what's more, I don't think many players probably believed in him, other than his ability to somehow catch the occasional lightning in a bottle.

    So, you have a team that has no faith in their QB. The line doesn't ever know where to block for him. The receivers stop running crisp routes (or never start running them), because they know the play is just going to break down, or the ball is going to bounce before it gets to them. The defense plays lights out, and still find themselves behind. Does all of that make for a good locker room?
    I agree. Tebow polarized the lockeroom. You can't have that. Even though all the teammates were saying the right things, except Orton, there were obviously pro and anti Tebow players.

    John removed distractions that have nothing to do with football, and it was the right move.

    I think McD loved Tebow because he was a winner but also a "Yes coach! Whatever you say coach!" player.

    Elway traded known malcontent and McClueless stooge Brandon Lloyd to STL because Lloyd was unhappy with Tebow being given the reigns in what up to that point was a lost season.

    And guess who that pick they got became?

    MALIK JACKSON!
