  • Simeon Rice cut (merged)

    According to 950 The Fan Denver local radio at least, Rice was just cut. I haven't seen confirmation, but I'm sure there will be articles if true.

    Makes the signing of 3 DE's make sense now. With Engleburger questionable, and Rice cut, that leaves only Crowder and Dumervile healthy and ready to go without the new depth.

    If true, I can't say Rice will be terribly missed. A big contract, mainly based on how many sacks he'd rack up this year, and he hasn't produced. Making fairly inflammatory comments in the media, not seeming like much of a team player. I'm guessing he wasn't passing on much to our young new players. And he really wasn't going to be around next year anyway.

    More developing I'm sure as the day goes on.

    Stinks we couldn't get anything out of him. His career is probably over now.

        Too bad it didn’t work out.

        I’m glad he wasn’t signed to a long-term deal, so really in the long run, no harm done.

            How did this move “kill us”?

            It was a one-year deal. There was a need when Ekuban was lost, so they signed a free agent to a basically risk-free one year deal.

            Explain to me exactly how this was a huge bust?

              If it's true then good riddance. He was kind of becoming a distraction and it seemed as though he always had a bad attitude.

                          Shanahan said the Broncos might sign a player before Sunday.

                            well.. in THIS deal.. there wasn't exactly a lot of choices. I mean, it wasn't like Shanahan signed him in the offseason and rode the hopes of having him. We only signed Rice to a ONE year deal because our other DEs were injured. It was a signing out of necessity.. and not one that ANYONE signed with the expectations of anchoring our D. The people HERE, on these message boards, were the ones claiming so much praise and putting so much hope on the shoulders of Simeon.

                              Ya its not really a player we'll miss. I just remember when the signing occurred it was huge. Rice was THE player we needed. The FA signing that in a Bates system was going to be a monster on the edge, wrecking havoc, easily getting a dozen sacks, and passing on a decade of experience to our rookies.

                              Just another sign that FA's who are FA's because they have a questionable history on other teams aren't suddenly going to become great/ perform at a much higher level here. Unlike the Pats, sad to say, we're not a "transformational" team.

                              To be honest the only FA that I've been hugely impressed with was Brandon Stokley, who I think has outperformed expectations. Just thought I'd mention the name to give props for one really good FA acquisition I don't see many threads about.
                              Always a Broncos fan.
