In Topic: Beadles coming this way

19 March 2014 - 12:04 AM

Zane was the weakest link on the Broncos line, but it is a great line, He is a good G IMO.  If they thought he was all that great they wouldn't have let him go.  Either way, I see him as an upgrade for you guys and just a fantastic guy to have in the locker room and in your community.  I hate to see him go.

 

That is incorrect actually. Teams can't keep every good player that comes onto a team, especially when you have guys like Julius Thomas, Demaryius Thomas, Von Miller, etc. that are going to need long term deals soon. Peyton Manning said Zane Beadles was one of the smartest offensive lineman he has ever known. Every Broncos fan i've talked to has said the guy is a very good guard.

 

Regardless, like I said, you can't keep every player that works out great and sign them long term at the same time, that's how teams get into cap hell. Luckily for us, Beadles was the odd man out. Just because they'd rather keep the guys stated above doesn't mean much to me, because the guys I named I view as pretty great players in the league right now.

@WaltThurm3: Great visit with Gus and the Jaguars Organization, some good people. They're headed in the right direction. Now off to San Fran.

Don't think he's coming guys

 

Yeah, IDK, that sure didn't sound promising to me. Not that he's going on a visit, just the way he stated it. Who knows though.


In Topic: The Next Move...?

I doubt we do too much more personally, I would be happy if we could get Thurmond to sign. Still not sure on the Mack front, but I wouldn't completely count us out. Doesn't sound to me like we've really brought any OL's in since Beadles signed, so we may just wait and get a depth guy and fill the spots in the draft. We'll see.


In Topic: Cap left?

13 March 2014 - 02:09 PM

The figure of about 40M is before Clemons and Babin. So now its probably just over 30M. Get 1 more starting interior O-line and leave it at that. 

How? After we released Babin at his 6M tag and got rid of Gabbert who I believe was close to 2M against the cap, we had just about 62M available or so. Clemons for 4M, Hood for around 2-3 (still havent heard), Watson for 2M, Beadles for 6M, Gerhart for 3.5, Babin for probably around 2-3. Should be right below 40 after Babin signing or right around there i'd imagine. That cap number was figured in after Red Bryant too I believe.

I'm kinda hoping we sign this Thurmond now. Revis & Talib are gone....so might as well add someone familiar to Bradley and familiar with the D. 

I would hope adding the leader of the Seahawks defense in Red Bryant and a solid veteran in Chris Clemons would help attract him here as well. I don't see why he'd want to go to TB or SEA unless he doesn't mind being a 3rd corner (which when healthy, I think he can be much more than that).
