Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! The big story of the weekend (at least to us) continues to be the rumored trade talks between Cleveland and San Francisco over the rights to Niners coach Jim Harbaugh.
Harbaugh and his current employers laughed off the reports, but their denials are something less than believable.
We may never know what really went on - whether the teams discussed compensation, or if Harbaugh was the one to shut down the negotiations.
But Tim Kawakami of the Mercury News - who first wrote about tensions between Harbaugh and Niners GM Trent Baalke - has some interesting theories on what might have happened.
As he makes clear, they're all just guesses, informed by some insight to the working relationship between Harbaugh and Niners brass.
Kawakami says there's a constant dance - Harbaugh letting his bosses know he deserves more money and is wanted elsewhere (Texas, USC, Cleveland), with the Niners making clear that they'd let him walk.
It's a fascinating piece, one we highly recommend you check out.
Of greatest interest to Broncos fans, Kawakami says Oakland (where Harbaugh was the QB coach in 2002 and 2003 under Bill Callahan) and San Diego have been mentioned as potential landing spots for the coach.
With free agency just over two weeks away, teams are putting out word (negotiating via the press) that they won't be re-signing players before then. Some of the names said to be hitting the open market are Green Bay WR James Jones and a trio of Giants: DE Justin Tuck, WR Hakeem Nicks, and LB Jon Beason.
Buffalo may use its franchise tag on safety Jairus Byrd for the second straight year, requiring a 20% raise over last year's tender.
Byrd is a rumored target of the Browns, who are reportedly also focused on re-signing C Alex Mack.
The A11FL is the latest league to have shown interest in having Tim Tebow join it, with a reported offer of ownership included.
Several wideouts ran their forties in under 4.35 seconds.
Alabama QB A.J. McCarron thinks he deserves more credit, likening himself to one Tom Brady (LOLZ).
