Waiting For Next Year:
The Denver Broncos have signed former Browns CB/S Mike Adams according to reports, and by Adams himself via his twitter account-
“clev didnt offer a contract for me 2 stay, so now im a Bronco. I went hard every play 4 u clev! I will miss that locker room, and the fans!”
Adams reportedly had other visits scheduled, but Denver couldn’t let the veteran leave without a deal. Adams played 5 seasons for the Browns, playing in 76 games. He started 32 of those games, including all 16 last season. The versatile DB played the nickel back, corner back, free safety and strong safety in his time in Cleveland, as well as kick and punt coverage. Nicknamed ‘Pops’, he was a popular player in the Browns locker room.

Now that Mike Adams is committed to the Denver Broncos, the veteran safety hopes another big-name free agent jumps on board as well.
And no, it's not Peyton Manning.
Adams is eager to have the Broncos bring back perennial Pro Bowler Brian Dawkins, who is still undecided on whether he will return for a 17th season or call it a career. The 38-year-old free agent missed most of...
Mike Holmgren, via PFT:
“Honestly, when [Robert Griffin III to Cleveland] didn’t happen I think there are reasons that I can’t go into right now, but there is a very close relationship between the people getting the deal done and the people who offered. And I’m not sure anything we offered would have been good enough. We were very, very aggressive and it didn’t work,”...
When Mike Holmgren stated that sometimes it is good for both sides to have a fresh start, he really meant it. Right or wrong, there should be no question going forward just how little the Browns wanted Peyton Hillis back. The Chiefs got themselves a really good speculative bargain in their reported 1-year $3 million deal.
Per a source with knowledge of the contracts, Hillis receives...
Adam Schefter from ESPN has a report on twitter that the Cleveland Browns have signed Frostee Rucker. The former defensive end of the Cincinnati Bengals has a reported new contract worth 21 million with 8 million guaranteed. The 20 million number will scare people but the real money is the 8 million which isn't too much for an average pass rusher in the NFL. The hope for the...

As Manning Watch approaches seemingly unendurable Day Seven, there’s one thing to note — the Denver Broncos, the first serious potential suitors of Peyton Manning, remain patient.
They aren’t pestering the future Hall of Famer. They aren’t calling him or his agent every time Manning gets on a...
The only player to ever wear No. 18 for the Denver Broncos wants to make the jersey available again for Peyton Manning.
Maybe that will entice the four-time MVP to the Mile High City.
Frank Tripucka wore that number for three seasons in the 1960s, when he was the first quarterback in club history.
After his tenure, the number was ceremonially retired.
But Tripucka is just fine...

Wide receiver Eddie Royal did NOT sign with the Washington Redskins as we reported on Tuesday and is still making the free agent rounds. In fact, he’ll be talking to a trip to the Broncos’ AFC West rival San Diego Chargers.
Naturally we decided to dig up pictorial...
The Cleveland Browns jumped into the race to secure the services of Green Bay Packers free agent Matt Flynn. The Brown and the Dolphins are both interested in having Flynn on their roosters. Flynn has said the Cleveland Browns would be his third choice stating he would only go to Cleveland if he didn’t get good offers from either the Miami Dolphins of the Seattle Seahawks. The...

The four-time NFL MVP and top free agent of the offseason has not signed with a new team since being released March 7 by the Indianapolis Colts.
