Denver Broncos sign G Louis Vasquez

I didn’t like a lot of moves today. That’s normally how the first day goes. The desperate teams make the big splash moves and don’t get any better as a result and end up cutting him 2 or 3 years into the deal, while the smart teams let things come to them once the buyers dry up on the later days of free agency and also build through the draft. However, this is one move I really...

NFL Free Agent Buzz: Tuesday, March 12th

Quick hits from around the NFL… The Broncos first signing was locking up offensive guard Louis Vasquez to a four-year, $23.5 million deal.  This is a curious signing because the team’s Week 1 starting guards in 2013—Chris Kuper and Zane Beadles—both received Pro Bowl recognition last season (as an alternate and reserve, respectively).

Broncos G Kuper ready for 1st playoff appearance

Nobody knows the value of right guard Chris Kuper's presence like Peyton Manning. Coming off a series of neck surgeries, Denver's quarterback was sacked 21 times this season, but only twice with Kuper in the Broncos' lineup. Although Manny Ramirez admirably filled in for him, the pocket of protection wasn't the same with Kuper out. The anchor of Denver's offensive...
