Happy Friday, Broncos fans! It's been a long time coming, but the Titans are expected to finally release running back Chris Johnson today.
CJ2K has rushed for at least 1,000 yards in each of his six seasons, and topped the 2,000-yard mark in 2009.
The East Carolina alum was set to make $8M in each of the next two seasons; the move will free up $6M in cap space and leave $4M in dead money on Tennessee's 2014 cap.
The Patron Saint of IAOFM turns 63 today!
Happy Thursday, friends. I haven’t had any time to write in a few weeks, and I was thinking it was a good time to check back in on free agency, and on some early draft thoughts.
After really moving the needle with their early signings, the Broncos have focused on some smaller moves of late, which may prove to be consequential.
I also want to take a look at some other happenings around the NFL, because it’s good to take stock of the competition periodically. That, and some things have been said and written lately that I don’t agree with. We’ll see what we’ll see on the other side of the jump. Ready… BEGIN!!
Good Morning, Broncos fans! The addition of Will Montgomery adds plenty of intrigue to Denver's offensive line and who might start, and where.
According to Jeff Legwold, Denver foresees Montgomery as their starting center.
Pending the draft, this would mean Manny Ramirez or Orlando Franklin starts at left guard, with Franklin or Chris Clark manning right tackle.
According to Gil Brandt, the Broncos were represented by a special teams coach (presumably either Jeff Rodgers or Derius Swinton) at Wednesday's North Texas pro day.
While we can't be sure that their purpose was to see wideout Brelan Chancellor, it would seem a good bet, given what Brandt writes about him:
Having already signed Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Trindon Holliday, the Giants continued their raid of Denver's roster on Wednesday.
The G-Men have agreed to terms with defensive end Robert Ayers on a two-year deal with a reported $4M total value and $1.75M in guarantees.
Denver made Ayers the 18th-overall pick in 2009 with their second of two first-round picks that year.
Good Morning, Broncos fans! As expected, Washington has reportedly reached agreement on a contract with DeSean Jackson.
San Francisco apparently made a late push for the playmaker, but Jackson will remain in the NFCE.
According to the DP, Montgomery will get a one-year deal worth $1.325M, with playing time incentives available to boost that figure.
Montgomery is expected to compete with Manny Ramirez for the starting center job, with the loser potentially ending up in Zane Beadles' old spot at left guard.
3.5 weeks after his release by the Broncos, Champ Bailey finally made his first free agent visit on Tuesday, when he met with the Saints.
According to Adam Schefter, Champ has another visit lined up with an undisclosed team, should he not agree with New Orleans.
Chris Harris signed his $2.187M restricted tender on Tuesday; teams would have had until May 2 to sign Harris (or any other RFA) to an offer sheet.
But given that Harris is recovering from ACL surgery, it was a foregone conclusion that nobody was going to bother signing him away and handing Denver a second-round draft pick as compensation.
