Of course, even if he'd said something meaningful, we wouldn't believe it, anyway. Remember when a certain
sect segment took Elway's comments about wanting a son-in-law like Tim Tebow, to mean he wanted a starting quarterback who couldn't throw? Good times (also couldn't resist).
There's some great news out of the NFL today, as the salary cap will reportedly jump to around $130M in 2014.
Expectations had been for a cap of approximately $126M, and teams had apparently been preparing for such a number.
What could this mean for Denver? It's hard to say.
In theory, there should be an across the board increase of about 3% for all contracts, spreading the wealth around to every player who signs a new deal.
According to John Ourand of SportsBusiness Daily, Shannon Sharpe and Dan Marino will no longer be part of the CBS studio crew, with Tony Gonzalez replacing one of them, and another hire expected.
We're extremely biased here, but this is incredibly disappointing news; the HOFer and Broncos ROFer had been with CBS Sports for 10 years.
|Player||Pos.||2014 Age||Old Team||Notes|
|Louis Delmas||S||27||Detroit||2/17: Reported interest (Jason La Canfora)|
|D'Qwell Jackson||LB||31||Cleveland||2/27: Visited Broncos (3/3), signed with Colts (3/6)|
|Mike Mitchell||S||27||Carolina||3/8: Broncos, others interested|
|T.J. Ward||S||28||Cleveland||3/9: Broncos expected to pursue|
The Broncos are reportedly among the teams currently expressing interest in safety Louis Delmas, who was released by Detroit in a cap-related move last Thursday.
Selected by the Lions atop the second round of the 2009 Draft (#33 overall), Delmas was often discussed as a possible pick for Denver that year.
It's going to be another long day for the valiant defenders of bigotry and bullying (There sure have been a lot of those lately).
Ted Wells has issued his report on the Dolphins' bullying case involving Jonathan Martin and his tormentors Richie Incognito, John Jerry, and Mike Pouncey.
Here's what Wells had to say in his released statement:
The Broncos and DC Jack Del Rio have reportedly agreed to a new two-year deal, expected to be finalized on Friday.
Del Rio, who took over the Denver defense in 2012, interviewed for the head gig at USC, his alma mater, but not for any NFL jobs.
After reuniting with John Fox, for whom he'd coordinated the Panthers defense in 2002, Del Rio led Denver's defense to rank #4 in points and #2 in yardage allowed in 2012.
On Wednesday, the Broncos re-signed Gerell Robinson, who spent the 2013 season on their practice squad.
Notably, they are listing the 6-4, 220-pounder solely as a tight end; he had been listed earlier as a WR/TE.
The AFCW teams will face off with the NFCW and AFCE squads in 2014..
Because Denver won the AFCW in 2013, they will also face the other AFC division winners.
Typically, the schedule is announced in April.
One couldn't help but wonder whether Champ Bailey would have retired with a Broncos victory on Sunday night.
Well, he doesn't yet have the opportunity to walk away on top ala John Elway.
Of course, the next questions are whether he'll be back with the Broncos in 2014, and if so, where he'll be playing, and for how much money.
