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.
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.
A couple of weeks ago, they had brought back Darren McFadden on a one-year deal.
What do the two have in common?
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.
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.
