Rob Gronkowski is wisely taking his time with his rehab

As was the case last season, Rob Gronkowski plans to take his time in returning from his knee injury. According to a Bleacher Report source, Gronk will ""take his time and then take more time" in returning from a torn ACL and MCL suffered last season." This is not surprising given that Gronk suffered a really serious knee injury and he's had various...

Seahawks get Broncos in preseason Super bowl rematch

How thirsty are we for football? The release of the Seattle Seahawks pre-season schedule for 2014 is an epic, hotly anticipated event.

Here’s how it’s going to go down in August: Game 1: Denver Broncos – away – August 7-10 This doesn’t...

Denver Broncos Draft Needs

In Free Agency they addressed the needs at strong safety, defensive end, and corner back with TJ Ward, Aqib Talib, and Demarcus Ware. However another corner would not hurt.

Mailbag: Cleveland’s free agent pickups are not old

The Browns seem to be stockpiling old guys in Free Agency. Is that a good thing? -Phil in Cleveland I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing, but I actually don’t agree with your statement that the Browns are “stockpiling old guys.” If you looked at some of the players who were brought in, there’s not a noticeably huge jump in age.

Power Rankings: Grading teams at the offseason midpoint

Not all of the moves have been made, but most of them are in the books. Players have come and gone, as teams tinker with their rosters, looking to fill holes and upgrade in key positions. Some have tried to make a big splash, while others have been more conservative. Some have simply tried to retain their own players, while others have gone about overhauling a big chunk of their...

Do the Seahawks have a free agent problem?

Free agency is just three weeks old but there’s already been a plethora of high-profile signings throughout the NFL. The Broncos spent $73 trillion dollars upgrading their defense with DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward. The New England Patriots signed both Darelle Revis and Brandon Browner to their secondary and may be trying to emulate the Seahawks‘ winning formula. The...

Denver Broncos Post Free Agency Recap and Analysis 2014

After a harsh loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 48 the Denver Broncos and General Manager John Elway were already thinking about next season. The clock was ticking on the Broncos Super Bowl window and if John Elway and the Broncos front office didn’t make moves in free agency, the window would have been a whole lot smaller.

Denver Broncos mock draft round 1-4: Post free agency

The last time we sat down in the proverbial cover32 War Room, we talked about the Broncos going full defense due to some serious deficiencies on that side of the ball. John Elway laughed, reached into his magical free agency hat, and pulled out three defensive Pro-Bowlers. Hard hitting strong safety, TJ Ward, lock down cornerback Aqib Talib, and sure fire hall of fame defensive end...

Taking inventory of Browns moves

When you look at the body of work that Ray Farmer and staff have done thus far in free agency, you have to take notice. The Browns used free agency to address many of their needs, but didn't compromise their salary cap room as they are still near the top in that department. Heading toward the draft and armed with 10 draft choices in what has been called by many experts a '...

What Will the Denver Broncos do with their First Round Pick?

The Denver Broncos are in an excellent position. Fresh off of a trip to the Super Bowl, they’ll enter 2014 with veteran signal caller still running what was the most prolific offense of all time in 2013, while only getting younger and hopefully more productive. While the Broncos did lose some quality talent in free agency with the likes of Eric Decker and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie...

T.J. Ward sounds off on Browns new regime.

(freep.com) The Denver Broncos acquired former Cleveland Browns safety T.J. Ward in free agency earlier this month. A short time after, the Browns signed former San Francisco 49ers safety Donte Whitner to a four-year, $28 million contract. This move made many people question why the Browns didn’t try to give that deal to Ward rather than Whitner. Per a report from NFL.com, Ward...

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...

Denver Broncos salary cap number updated

The Denver Broncos have gone wild in Free Agency, grabbing all the top talent around. They re-signed Andre Caldwell, then added T.J. Ward, Aqib Talib and DeMarcus Ware to the defense. A few days later, Emmanuel Sanders was signed to take over for the departed Eric Decker. That spending frenzy has been fun, but it’s also depleted Denver’s funds. While the Broncos started Free...

Saints signing of Jairus Byrd shows NFL evolution shifting towards secondary

Football is continually evolving.  From the first forward pass to the record-setting season from Peyton Manning in 2013, the NFL is in a perpetual state of constant change and motion.  The T formation has given way to the spread, linemen weigh 100 pounds more than they did a few generations ago, and a superimposed yellow line now helps you know just when a team records a first...

This is an absolute steal. TJ Ward definitely took less money to join a contender in Denver because there’s no way 23 million over 4 years was the best offer Ward could get.

Jairus Byrd, meanwhile, got more guaranteed money (28 million) than Ward got total money, not to mention...
