    Vic on if #Broncos RG Ron Leary (knee) is trending toward playing in Week 1 (two weeks from tonight):

      It would be great if he could start and play this year. Wilkinson could be Swing Tackle and maybe Schlottmann could provide inside depth. They might pick up an O-Lineman after cuts.

        id be more worried they cut Wolfe than Leary, cutting Wolfe saves 8.5 mill this year and you still have dre mont jones and walker

        behind leary is a whole lotta nothing



        but maybe they can restructure von putting some of the 25 mill owed into bonus
        After Luck retiring what is surprising? ...... but I see Wolfe as a piece of Von Miller. These 2 have developed a tandem of sorts over these years. Cutting Wolfe and you lose more than just Wolfe. Having said that- we all know Von is an anomaly so maybe you're right. I just thought it worth mentioning how Wolfe and Von work as a team over there

        On topic though --- I'm really shocked by the cuts. But the team is desperate for a MLB or 3

          Maybe letting Scangarello go was the quid pro quid pro quo.

            Especially pegging a fifth round pick to us as an alternative. Very, very hypothetical.

              Had they not traded the pick for Watson, we don't know if they would have drafted Mack Wilson with it.

                If Denver wants an ILB or more O-line help, here’s a short list of available players-
                Ryan Schreader, John Sullivan, Mason Foster, Andy Levitre, Josh Bynes, Jeremy Pernell.

                Unless there’s a trade coming but I’m not predicting one.

                  Fant better become a all pro TE because we could have used Devin Bush badly right about now. I starting to believe we may have made a big mistake trading with the Steelers and skipping on Bush.

                    Bush didnt look very good this last week. Was getting washed out of the run almost every play

                      Fant is going to be a great draft pick
                      -Bronco in UT


                      While I both agree and disagree with many posts in this thread I have to lean towards champ on this one. Jay really needs to learn how to manage the game better, and also to learn that you don't have to go for the big play EVERY time on every drive. There is something to be said to check the ball down and live to fight another day. -Great Post Cut the Excuses out please. sigh...

                        Fant is going to be great if he stays healthy. Watson should get scooped by another team soon, he can play special teams and can at times pass rush. Kerr wasn't necessarily better than other backups but he looked pretty solid to me. Purcell played quite well against the Rams. Maybe that was enough to justify the Kerr cut,

                          Fant will be good in a year or 2.

                            I only watched a few plays of the Steelers/Titans game, and that was mostly by the Steelers offense for Fantasy Recon purposes. What I did watch of the Steelers defense didn't look bad where Bush is concerned. On TEN's first run, they couldn't get to him in time on a stretch play, and he took Lewis down in the backfield. The other play I watched, Lewan just said screw it and ran straight to Bush so the RB could get the edge. I wouldn't call that bad, because it took an All Pro going out of his way to block him.

                            I didn't watch the whole game, so maybe he did struggle most of the time. Just reporting on what I did see. What I have seen of Bush so far has impressed me.

                            PIT's, or I guess you could call it LeBeau's scheme (I'm sure Sam will come along to elaborate), is very ILB dependent. They have to be able to do everything, and that's probably why they had a higher value on him than most teams would. I also get the idea of getting the most valuable weapon for our new OC, while also acquiring another pick. The one that I don't get is if Mack Wilson was never on our radar, and we wouldn't have taken him if Cleveland didn't. That's all speculation though. You have to think JE consulted Fangio about ILB this offseason, and that's why we didn't address it. We'll see how it goes.

                            We have to be patient with Fant though. Tight ends taken in the first round, especially after the top 15 rarely blow up until after a year or two.

                              I agree - Fangio said as much in his presser. IMO - this move by the Broncos showed a lot of class as an organization. Just as I have said for years on these boards. IF we DONT play the best guys we have at their positions in PS and elevate them then the UDFA's we are able to pickup who are legit talents will simply go elsewhere. Look at Malik Reed and evem Muhammed (SP). These guys are legit NFL talents. They CHOSE to come to us. Now when borderline FA's or depth FA's have tow places to chose form the way we treat people will play into their decision making process.

                                The question will be do we want him playing? I mean so much of those comments are predicated on the fact that WHEN he returns he will be at top notch and in peak form. Given how long this has taken him and that he is ALWAYS hurt now it seems is it even worth it? Will he be better than Wilk? - my opinion is likely not. When you're coming back form being hurt THAT much and for THAT long there are usually issues. There will likely also be a decline in play. At this point we already know where Ron will be at. So is a 60% Ron better than a 100% Wilk? - Again I say no.
