Would NFL approve a name change from Bills to Trumps?

Good Morning, Broncos fans! As expected, Washington has reportedly reached agreement on a contract with DeSean Jackson.

The former Eagles wideout is believed to have gotten $16M in full guarantees as part of a three-year deal worth $24M.

San Francisco apparently made a late push for the playmaker, but Jackson will remain in the NFCE.

Broncos agree with Will Montgomery

Two weeks after they hosted him at Dove Valley, the Broncos have agreed to terms with former Washington interior lineman Will Montgomery.

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.

Champ visits Saints; Decker buys familiar number

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.

Harris signs restricted tender

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.

Every year is a contract year

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.

The playmaking wideout/punt returner is reportedly close to a deal with Washington after having visited with them and taken a physical on Monday.

Is Gerell Robinson a tight end or wide receiver?

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.

Davis: Every NFL team has more than one gay player

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):

  • Bill Belichick is pushing for instant replay to include all decisions, including judgment calls. Sounds great to us.
  • Bengals owner Mike Brown suggests putting the ball at the one-yard line for PATs, which would figure to encourage more two-point attempts. This is also a terrific idea.

How could DeSean Jackson end up anywhere other than Oakland?

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.

CJ2K on his way out of Tennessee

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.

Eagles release Jackson, reportedly due to gang ties

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.
