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.

Broncos re-sign Winston Justice

Denver has brought back tackle Winston Justice on a one-year deal. According to Mike Klis, Justice would compete with Chris Clark at right tackle if Orlando Franklin is shifted over to replace Zane Beadles at left guard.

The former Eagle and Colt played 19 snaps late in the regular season, allowing one QB hit and grading out at -0.5 according to PFF.

Raiders apparently going for three yards and a cloud of dust

Happy Friday, Broncos fans! Oakland has reportedly agreed with former Jags running back Maurice Jones-Drew on a three-year deal.

A couple of weeks ago, they had brought back Darren McFadden on a one-year deal.

What do the two have in common?

Could spending spree put Broncos into ‘cap hell’?

Agent's Take: Did Broncos mortgage future with spending spree?
www.cbssports.com

Conservatively, the Broncos should head into next off-season with at least $30 million of cap room unless core players are given contract extensions or the projected growth in the cap isn’t accurate.

No.

Of course, you already knew this.

Moreno, Phillips head elsewhere

After finding a soft free agent market, two key players from Denver's SB run landed with new teams on Thursday.

Running back Knowshon Moreno agreed terms with Miami, while defensive end Shaun Phillips is headed to Tennessee.

Moreno's one-year deal is worth a reported $3M, while Phillips reportedly got $6M over two years, including $2.5M in guarantees.

Raiders still channeling Crazy Al

Schadenfreude. It’s impolite to take pleasure from the travails of others.

It’s also hard to pretend that I have any particular sympathy for the Raiders, and free agency is showing why.

Oakland was going to give Dennis Allen and Reggie McKenzie two years to make changes; this may not be the way to prove that.

Jeff Fisher is a hypocritical stick in the mud

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Everyday, there's some funny news out of Oakland.

The latest? Jared Allen took less money from the Bears than the Raiders would have given him.

Granted, this report comes with nothing better than an AAV ($9M per year), and no talk of guaranteed money, which is, of course, everything.

But hey, we'll never let the absence of facts get in the way of an opportunity to laugh at the Raiders' expense.

Fox: Emmanuel Sanders is Denver’s new return man

Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! It's a particularly rough time for Bills fans, and our thoughts are sincerely with them.

The health of their HOF quarterback is failing, they've lost their founder, and the team may be next.

Earlier in the week, it was learned that Jim Kelly had suffered a recurrence of his oral cancer, and is reportedly not faring well.

On Tuesday, owner and AFL pioneer Ralph Wilson passed away at 95.
