Free Agency - News

Well guys so this post took so long, been getting railed at uni, just of assignments none stop, same next week. But I found a little time to put this post together and update you on what has been going on.

First would be the great news of Simms being cut, we are all very happy to see this as Simms could not get it done. But he is a top block and has had it hard, he may catch on with another team that needs Qb help.

There is all the stuff about Brady Quinn coming to town. The back lash of Hillis going as the fans loved him.

The Broncos have worked out a few guys and plan to work out more. They have worked out Matt Tennant and Gerhart later this month.

There has been a lot of rumors or ideas of a Brandon Marshall trade, now you can add Dallas to that list as was reported on ESPN.com.

Other News that has some buzz, Kevin Curtis was cut today, what about him to Denver?

Andra Davis signed with the Bills and so did Dwan Edwards that we were looking at.

Also Marcus Thomas was a no show at the off season program he is working out to get in better shape. After the end of last season he was a bit down on his play and ballooned out to 336 pounds from his 326 playing weight, he hopes to get to 292 before showing up at off season workouts so he can play DE. It says he is very close.

And DJ Williams will be a no show as well, he is staying in Miami to work out with Doom, he has informed the Broncos of his decision and everything seems ok there.

Finally Brandon Spikes run the 40 at his pro day at over 5 secs, let me put this in perspective, my grandmother with her a-frame could have done a faster 40. Anyone that says a two down ILB at most, goes in the 2nd round or higher is crazy.

That is it from me ~ Aussie Out.

  2. Me neither it just seems so far away, I want to see what we do in the draft first.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Yeah thats REALLY SLOW for a ILB in the NFL. I know OT Bruce Cambell and Trent Williams ran faster times at the combine.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Bruce Cambell is a freak!!! I've never seen some one that big move that smoothly that quickly. He is like big foot combined with Usain bolt, Barry Sanders and Jennifer Aniston.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I don't think we are looking at ILB now that Haggan is moving inside. So don't worry that much about the possibility of Spikes. I might have a better 40 time then Brandon Spikes. Lol

    ReplyDelete
  6. haha I know I have a better 40 than spikes, I like Sean Lee though. But he is just like larsen. Oh and Bruce Campbell is a freak. Some NT ran faster than Spikes. He just blow himself alot of money, 3rd round or later now.

  7. I know i have a faster 40. My fastest time ever was 4.76, but that was last year in the summer. I timed about 2 weeks ago and i ran about a 4.81, wasnt able to break 4.8. Once it starts getting warmer 40 times improve, so ill be looking for about a 4.7 right before football season starts.

    ReplyDelete
  8. i could run a 3.9.........if i felt like it.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Dang 80 you got some wing on those shoes. Lol

    I'm in the 5.1-5.3 range

    ReplyDelete
  10. sup Florio.

    Joey Porter signed with the Cardinals

    ReplyDelete
  11. i saw that. he got quite a bit of cash.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Way to much cash. I'm happy we didn't sign him. He's not an every down OLB anymore and demanded way to much money

    ReplyDelete
  13. yeah......dude, im trying to set this blog up. gosh its such a pain.

    ReplyDelete
  14. yep, they are a pain. Its not lookin to bad so far. just needs some decorations.

    ReplyDelete
  15. that what im working on. im taking advantage of my photoshop and creating a back ground.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Nice nice. whats the background gonna look like?

    ReplyDelete
  17. So what do you think of Whitehurst goin to the Seahawks?

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOL if they wanna pay a guy that hasn't thrown a ball that much money they can have him

    ReplyDelete
  19. http://espn.go.com/action/bmx/gallery?id=4998524

    ReplyDelete
  20. plus they gave up some draft picks to go along with the lucraive deal they gave him

    ReplyDelete
  21. maybe they are planning on using him more

    ReplyDelete
  22. I wouldn't be surprised if he was starting

    ReplyDelete
  23. i think pete is waiting for his USC qb

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wouldn't count on that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. " But is better known for his physics defying neck beard "...LMAO ------->

    ReplyDelete
  26. lol i hope quinn works out. i cant stand orton

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yep, I haven't seen a beautiful deep throw in over a year. I hope Quinn brings that.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I hope he can atleast stay on two feet after some one bumps into him

    ReplyDelete
  29. I also hope he can move around outside the pocket on playaction

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh love the neckbeard, too funny, and the league is taking risks on players in the hope they work out, but who knows. I like Quinn and so does princess hehe, I really think he could win the starting job.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm confident he will. McD went after him last year. Obviously he thinks Quinn can win games for him.

    ReplyDelete
  32. i think he will win. Every player he brings in he assumes they will start. He brought in Simms thinking he would start and he brought in orton thinking he will start. Its what keeps it competitive.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Florio, same thing with Buckhalter and Reid

    ReplyDelete
  34. yeah that what keeps things interesting

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wats up guys. Joey Porter was paid to much, hes declining. After watching some videos of Rolando Mcclain i am less impressed, his form tackling is terrible and he just seems like a slow person on the field, kinda lazy maybe. Since i dont want Spikes either I am now hoping for ILB Pat Angerer from Iowa in the draft, hopefully in the 4th round.

    ReplyDelete
  36. im telling you pay the raiders our first pick and get morrison. he is better than all the MLB's in the draft

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh and about my 40 time Doc, I have worked really hard on that the past 2 years. Alot of sweat and hard work. I started at a 5.0 flat the beginning of my freshman year and have been developing my speed ever since, I have to if i ever have chance to play cornerback at the college level. Hopefully by my senior year ill be running in the low 4.6s.

    ReplyDelete
  38. that could be a good option, but a doubt anybody wants to make contact with the raiders. lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. its better than a shot in the dark with the draft

    ReplyDelete
  40. Or we would just see how Mario Haggan does this year and wait till next year to draft a ILB

    ReplyDelete
  41. that means ayers needs to step up, or we get graham.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ayers does need to step up. I hope he does good

    ReplyDelete
  43. I much as i would like to think Haggan is ready to start and do a better job than Davis did at ILB, im not sure. Im not even sure thats the Broncos plans for Haggan, i think that was a rumor spread by a analyst maybe, but who knows.

  55. Hey dude what is the link to the website for?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hey Aussie
    Good to come here and get some updates. How's the new site coming? Is it going to be the same kind of blog DD was doing? He had lots of problems with viruses and stuff. Darn near wrecked his computer. He quit at Fan Huddle now because of it.
    Peace. Keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  57. May that sucks for DD, yeah I heard about the viruses, but he was running an old system. The new site I haven't had much time to look at as I have been really busy with school, but I will get to it. And it will be similar to this one, but I little better I hope. We will try it and see.
