Good Morning, Broncos fans! As expected, Washington has reportedly reached agreement on a contract with DeSean Jackson.
San Francisco apparently made a late push for the playmaker, but Jackson will remain in the NFCE.
According to the DP, Montgomery will get a one-year deal worth $1.325M, with playing time incentives available to boost that figure.
Montgomery is expected to compete with Manny Ramirez for the starting center job, with the loser potentially ending up in Zane Beadles' old spot at left guard.
3.5 weeks after his release by the Broncos, Champ Bailey finally made his first free agent visit on Tuesday, when he met with the Saints.
According to Adam Schefter, Champ has another visit lined up with an undisclosed team, should he not agree with New Orleans.
Chris Harris signed his $2.187M restricted tender on Tuesday; teams would have had until May 2 to sign Harris (or any other RFA) to an offer sheet.
But given that Harris is recovering from ACL surgery, it was a foregone conclusion that nobody was going to bother signing him away and handing Denver a second-round draft pick as compensation.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! It looks like DeSean Jackson isn't taking long to find a new home.
Best of all, he may get a chance to avenge twice yearly the Eagles' possibly having dragged his name through the mud.
One thing that everyone can agree on is that the Broncos have a wealth of gems in the area of receiving. Pass-catching running backs, tight ends, and skilled wide receivers abound. The team couldn’t get much better than they were last season.
Or could they? Gerell Robinson could be a path to the receiving corps staying even or getting better. If that’s so - is he a wide receiver or a tight end? To me, the differences are small with Denver’s current approach. With Gerell, they’re minuscule - and that’s about the only thing about him that is.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Three weeks into the new league year, and still 5.5 weeks from the draft, and NFL news is a bit sparse.
As such, we'll open with a summary of Peter King's latest MMQB column, which he posted with the heaviest of hearts (our thoughts to the King family, as PK suddenly lost his brother, Ken):
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! Interested teams are apparently lining up for the services of DeSean Jackson, who was released by Philly on Friday.
Early rumors suggested Kansas City and former Eagles coach Andy Reid were in on Jackson.
And while the weaponless Chiefs would appear a natural fit, Ian Rapoport says the team has opted not to pursue the wideout/punt returner.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! 2.5 weeks into the new league year, let's check in on where Denver stands financially.
Not including the Winston Justice contract (figure somewhere around $1M for one year), OTC estimates Denver's cap space at around $7.6M.
Although the Broncos sport the highest cap spending in the league so far ($129.2M), they still have decent room thanks to their carryover from 2013 and relative lack of dead money.
In recent days and weeks, it had become apparent that the Eagles would be ridding themselves of wideout DeSean Jackson, whether by trade or release.
It was a puzzling development, given that Jackson is coming off the most prolific of his six pro seasons, and had thrived in Chip Kelly's offense.
But on Friday, NJ.com reported that the team had concerns about Jackson's apparent gang ties, specifically his association with men implicated in gang-related murders.
