Eric Fisher, meet DeMarcus Ware

Good Morning, Broncos fans! As with every season and offseason, this one has been filled with Raiders-inspired yuks, as Doc will discuss later on.

And of course, there's more to come.

Even prior to the team's recent acquisition of Matt Schaub from Houston, Terrelle Pryor reportedly wanted out of town.

According to GM Reggie McKenzie, Pryor requested a trade through agent Drew Rosenhaus during the Senior Bowl in January.

McKenzie adds that Matt McGloin is currently ahead of Pryor on the team's depth chart, but that the former Buckeye "wants to start so bad."

Adding to the Raiders' QB conversation is their reported interest in Fresno State's Derek Carr.


Meanwhile, owner Lloyd Christmas Mark Davis says the Raiders would "think about" signing Richie Incognito.

Granted, he was asked the question, and it's not like he said he'd love to have the unhinged bully on his team, but any opportunity to link Oakland with the league's dickhead du jour is a worthwhile one.

Then again, he could have just said, "I'll leave that up to the GM."

Videos: John Elway discusses Denver's offseason; John Fox again tells of having watched the Broncos while recovering from heart surgery.

As Elway tells it, the team hasn't found enough time to get an extension done with John Fox, but will get cracking on that shortly. James Merilatt reads something into the delay, but we're not buying it.

According to Elway, Montee Ball is Denver's starting running back, and if Knowshon Moreno were to be re-signed, it would be in a reduced role.

Elway says Ben Garland will get a chance to replace Zane Beadles at left guard.

Transactions/Rumors

The Pats, Jets, Steelers, and Dolphins are reportedly the likeliest destinations for RB Maurice Jones-Drew.

Philly is expected to sign ex-Jets QB Mark Sanchez; Will Leitch chronicles his cometlike time in New Jersey.

The Cowboys expect to have Kyle Orton back, because why would he choose retirement over making $3.25M to do little more than grow his hair?

Not sure why they're saying so at such an early juncture (they have until May), but Detroit GM Martin Mayhew says the team won't pick up their 2015 option on DT Nick Fairley. Meanwhile, S James Ihedigbo says he's leaving Baltimore for Detroit.

Pittsburgh added ex-Bills LB Arthur Moats; Cleveland added ex-Seahawks lineman Paul McQuistan; San Francisco re-signed WR Kassim Osgood; Minnesota added ex-Jets lineman Vladimir Ducasse.

Baltimore extended the contract of coach John Harbaugh through 2017 and is interested in ex-Texans TE Owen Daniels.
