Good Morning, Broncos fans! Right from the get go, it was known that Denver had competition for the services of one D'Qwell Jackson.
We already knew that Jackson was visiting with Tennessee and may meet with Minnesota after his Monday stop at Dove Valley.
It now appears Arizona and Washington may be added to the linebacker's growing travel itinerary.
Jason La Canfora reported on Thursday that seven teams had contacted Jackson following his release by Cleveland.
According to Jason La Canfora, free agent linebacker D'Qwell Jackson is set to visit the Titans and Broncos in the coming days, with a meeting with the Vikings possibly to follow.
Cleveland released their longtime leader on Wednesday after eight seasons with the team, rather than pay him a $4M roster bonus due on March 15.
The 30-year-old former second-rounder was also set to make a salary of $3.93M this season.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Derek Wolfe spoke Wednesday about the frightening health scare that eventually ended his 2013 season.
The details are even worse than we'd all previously known.
Wolfe, who just celebrated his 24th birthday on Monday, says he was unconscious for 26 hours after the seizure-like episode he endured on the team bus.
Months later, doctors apparently still don't know what caused Wolfe's spine problems, although they suspect his preseason injury at Seattle has something to do with it.
Arizona governor vetoes anti-gay law, clearing path for Super Bowl XLIX
Super Bowl XLIX will be played in Arizona as scheduled.
Barring, you know, a blizzard.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announced moments ago that she has vetoed Senate Bill 1062, which would have allowed discrimination against gay men and women by business owners under the guise of religious freedom.
When John McCain, Jeff Flake, JP Morgan Chase, American Express, and the National Football League are all telling you to veto this awful bill, it's probably best to just veto the damn thing. The bigots are defeated (again). They ought to get used to it.
Source: NFL begins exploring Super Bowl XLIX relocation options
The NFL moved its 1993 Super Bowl from the Phoenix area to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., in reaction to Arizona voting down the effort to establish a state holiday in honor of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in the fall of 1990. After the King holiday measure passed in 1992, the NFL awarded its 1996 Super Bowl to Tempe’s Sun Devil Stadium.
I live in the part of Arizona where I can literally see California from my office, but my state seems to be threatening to renew its vows as the most bassackward, bigoted state in the union. I didn't remember that they lost the 1993 Super Bowl, but I did remember their resistance to MLK Day. Hopefully, Governor Jan Brewer vetoes this abomination of a bill. She's mostly awful, but has a moment of reasonability once in awhile. The best thing I can say about her is that she's more of a corporate shill than she is a batshit insane ideologue.
It sure would be nice to be able to drive 3 hours to see the Broncos win the Super Bowl next year.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Given the drama of the Dumervil debacle, it's at times easy to forget how busy Denver's 2013 offseason was otherwise.
One of the most interesting rumors involved the Broncos potentially trading for and then signing then-Jets corner Darrelle Revis.
Eventually, Revis was dealt to Tampa Bay, where he got a very strange contract - $16M/year in cash and cap, with no guarantees.
Happy Tuesday, friends. I had some time over the weekend to look at some combine footage, and I’ve generally been thinking about the go-forward state of affairs for the Broncos.
I thought we’d do a little bit of rosterbation, and that I’d also share some thoughts about the draft class.
Can we take ‘em to the bridge? Yeah, let’s kick it old school one time. Ready…BEGIN!!
Good Morning, Broncos fans! Poor Mike Pettine.
As he's rightly pointed out, he is fortunate to be one of just 32 people currently employed as an NFL head coach.
But even upon his hiring, it was very public news that he wasn't the Browns' first choice.
And a month later, we're still learning about Cleveland's coaching search dalliances.
We'll do our best to track the Broncos' pre-draft meetings and visits. If you see anyone missing, please drop us an email with a source!
Given that the Broncos' front five was completely dominated in SB 48, it’s no surprise that there’s talk about what to do with a pair of linemen - Zane Beadles and Chris Clark. It’s not hard to see that Denver’s line was overmatched by Seattle’s front four that ugly day.
A year after he was named a Pro Bowl alternate, Beadles was the least effective player on PFF's top line in the league, and now he's a pending unrestricted free agent. The question comes down to this: given the ups and downs in his level of play, is it worth keeping him? If not, what should Denver do to replace him? If so - what is he reasonably worth?
Whether you like Zane or not, it’s just reading his history to say that he has been extremely erratic in his NFL play.
