will depend almost completely on the contract money


if cheap than it's a good move for the donkeys... maybe cleveland just didn't fit.

if expensive then prolly not worth the risk.

There have been other FAs this offseason that were rumored to be going to Denver, but ended up somewhere else. The only one I can think of right now is Garcia, but there are others.

Good, I hope trying to be the Browns works for them. Warren and Brown should equal big games for Priest and LJ. :clap:

he's got the DREADED LISFRANC INJURY (dum dum DUM!!!!!) so obviously his career is over.

I don't even know how to comment on this one... first Warren, now this guy that can't stay healthy. I've read that he's played well when healthy, but damn.

The contract better be mostly incentives.

The other move I don't understand is giving Putz the contract he commanded thanks to the Jets and then signing Stephen Alexander with a $1M bonus.

I'm totally unsure of what the plan exactly is at the moment... no idea how to break down these signings.

Alexander's deal included $1M in bonuses, not a $1M signing bonus. His is probably a 1 year deal in all actuality.

"He agreed to a three-year, $4.2 million contract that includes a $1 million bonus."

However you like to describe it, it appears the career spare received a million bucks. If his cap hit for 05 is greater than the veteran minimum... they overpaid.

I don't mind taking chances on players... but, there's a limit to how many chances I'm comfortable with in one offseason.

Putz and Alexander... I would have rather them not match Putz and accept a draft pick from the Jets. I think they were willing to go up to a 4 from a 6 rounder, right?

I'd rather have Pollard (roughly the same $ as both Putz and Alexander are getting) and that 4th round pick.

Actually I like it when Denver is good. Then we get to beat them and say we beat a good team.

Now all you guys need is Tim Couch and William Green and the transformation into complete garbage will be complete.

were the Browns good against the run last year?

why is Denver importing their DL?

I am forgetting the position the guy coached, but the Broncos' new Dline coach (I believe) is formerly from Cleveland. I would hope that a new line coach, coming into a team with a serious need to upgrade the very position he's coaching would use his best judgement here.

So, that being said ... I just can't imagine that he'd seriously be pushing for guys like Warren and Brown if he thought they were complete pieces of shit. I mean, why would he do that?

So, maybe there's something there we don't know...

I'm sad that you asked ... especially after my last reply.

Last year, the Browns were dead last against the run - giving up an average of 144 yards per game, but ... Courtney Brown did miss 14 games, so maybe that's a way I can twist it. :hmmm:

Overall, they were #15 in total defense. Stats are stats though... we can spend all day spinnin' 'em either way.

I thought they had been near the bottom of the league in run defense for a while now. I think Jamal Lewis put up 2 200 yard games in a season against them or something like that.

Good for them. IF he can ever do something, he'll be a good cheap pick up for them. However, the guy has not shown ANYTHING that suggests he'll be effective. When I first heard that he was being cut, I figured that he'd end up in Denver.

Can, that is the link about the coach they brought over from Cleveland.

hmmm...I think Brown is worth the chance, but getting both is curious, would they be penciled in to start asasuming they're healthy?

I mean, we've got Hicks and Sims, so I can't talk about any smack.

Yeah, I would imagine (if healthy- two big words when talking about Brown) they would both be starters, especially if they part ways with Pryce.

The Warren signing didn't dazzle me and neither does the potential of bringing in Brown... but, all I can do is hope for the best.

Then Pasquerelli was wrong with his initial description of the deal, since he said it was bonus"es". But that is a Bill Williamson article, and anything he's done on the cap this offseason has pretty much been wrong.
