Looking Ahead: Middle Linebacker Options for the Arizona Cardinals in Free Agency

With the extremely disheartening and somewhat unexpected announcement of a year-long suspension without pay for Cardinals inside linebacker Daryl Washington, in response to his newest violation of the NFL drug policy, I figured it was time to look ahead to the Cardinals grim reality of a dire need at middle linebacker. This was possibly their strongest position on either side of...

What the Denver Broncos will be looking for in day two of NFL Draft

The Denver Broncos didn’t make the splash many of their fans were hoping for last night, but they still came away with a very solid player. Bradley Roby has the talent to be the best cornerback in this year’s draft class. The only issues he has stem from between the ears. Nonetheless, if the Broncos defensive staff and players can keep Roby on the right track, this pick could...

Arizona Cardinals Sign Larry Foote

Photo credit: pittsburghsportingnews.com The Miami Herald has reported that veteran linebacker Larry Foote has signed a one year deal with the Arizona Cardinals. While he is no longer a high quality starting option, Foote brings valuable experience to Arizona’s young linebacker corps. He has won two Super Bowls in his 12 year career, as well as starting 119 games. The move is reminiscent...

Draftable Broncos: Jordan Tripp, LB, Montana

I reached out to Broncos fans on Twitter, asking what players in the draft they wanted me to break down as a fit for the Broncos. Next up, Jordan Tripp, a linebacker from FCS school Montana. Does the name sound familiar to you? Well, back in March, he called himself the most-rounded LB in the draft.I don’t want to sound arrogant, but I believe that I’m the most versatile linebacker...

Mailbag: Will the Denver Broncos draft a middle linebacker?

With the Denver Broncos going “all-in” during Free Agency, one glaring need is at the forefront of every fans’ thinking; middle linebacker. Denver — led by GM John Elway — went out and signed a hard-hitting safety in T.J. Ward, a shutdown corner in Aqib Talib, a pass-rushing pro in DeMarcus Ware and Eric Decker’s replacement with Emmanuel Sanders. But what about middle...

Ryan Shazier, Broncos ILB of the Future?

It’s no surprise that the Broncos need help at middle linebacker. Denver has struggled for a while to keep any MLB upright and productive for more than a year. Paris Lenon, Keith Brooking and Joe Mays have all lent the­­ir services to the position, but the Broncos have yet to find a long-term player. Nate Irving was drafted as the ILB of the future but hasn’t panned out. Steven...

Titans Sign LB Wesley Woodyard To Four-Year Deal

The Tennessee Titans have signed former starting LB for the Denver Broncos, Wesley Woodyard, to a four-year deal worth $16 million dollars. During his time on the market, the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots were possible landing spots for the veteran. After sustaining a stinger in week 5 last season, Woodyard gave way to Paris Lenon in Denver and never regained the starting...

Denver Broncos give Lofa Tatupu workout Tuesday

Wesley Woodyard and Paris Lenon can’t feel good about their chances of playing for the Denver Broncos next year. That’s because Denver’s been meeting with middle linebackers the last two days. On Monday, it was D’Qwell Jackson, formerly of the Cleveland Browns and currently on the free agent market. Jackson could be a big improvement at the pivotal position, but after meeting...

D’Qwell Jackson would be huge upgrade for Denver Broncos

Linebacker D’Qwell Jackson left Denver on Monday without a contract from the Broncos. John Elway and company should have never let the linebacker leave, as it would fill a giant hole in the Broncos defense. Denver needs Jackson much more than Jackson needs the Broncos. Middle linebacker has been a problem for the Broncos since the days of Al Wilson. They used stop gaps like Joe...

Broncos State of the Roster: Linebacker

Due to both injury and performance, linebacker was a position of flux for the Denver Broncos in 2014. At different times in 2013, the Broncos lined up Von Miller, Wesley Woodyard, Nate Irving, Paris Lenon, and Danny Trevathan as starters. They expect to get Miller, Irving and Trevathan back, but Woodyard and Lenon are both free agents, leaving a potential hole at middle linebacker...

Denver Broncos should spend their money on defense

The Denver Broncos offense was the bread and butter of the team. That high-powered unit got the team all the way to Super Bowl XLVIII but Denver came up short. The Seattle Seahawks showed the world that winning with defense is possible. The Seahawks pounded and abused the Broncos. Denver had no answer for the tough style of Seattle. Now, the Broncos will probably never have a defense...

Several players have chance to make a high-profile closing argument before free agency

Since the arrival of free agency in the early 1990s, several marginal players have parlayed memorable performances on Super Sunday into big paydays. Today, another guy or two could join the ranks of Larry Brown (pictured), Desmond Howard, and Dexter Jackson. Both teams have several players headed for the open market, barring new deals. For Denver, receiver Eric Decker (who could...

Broncos' Paris Lenon takes the long road — from XFL to Super Bowl

Denver Broncos linebacker Paris Lenon remembers two things from his 12-day stay with the Seattle Seahawks in 2001: veteran Levon Kirkland once gave him a ride to his hotel, and he paid $10 for a hamburger. "I thought that was absurd, especially being from Virginia," said Lenon, whose income to that point was a $1,500 bonus from the Carolina Panthers after going undrafted...
