    Agree...ERFA's don't have much option other than play for the tendered amount for 1yr or not play in the league. Next year is a different story he'll be a RFA which means we have the right to assign a draft pick value to him in case he's signed by another team. I suspect we will or at least should negotiate a long term deal sometime this year heading into his RFA year.

    Thx,
    Joe

    thats okay. I'm not convinced of what you're saying. Doesn't make either of us right.

    Barrett played 700 snaps last year...that is a big contribution.

    Barrett took a nose dive in 16 as opposed to 15. He's got plenty of talent but Ray look improved and Barrett looked not so much.

    I think they're both great players though, and itd be silly to get rid of Barrett for anyone less than Joe Thomas.

    I neglected to mention Shaq Barrett's contribution to Special Teams. Reserve Backers and DBs are the heart and soul of those groups: Kickoff; Kickoff Return; Punt; and, Punt Return.

    P.S. Shaq Barrett is one of 31 players on the current roster who came into the league as UDFAs. Fifteen of those were on the roster last year including Shaq.

    After the draft, Denver will probably sign around ten UDFAs, so about half the roster going to TC will have entered the league that way. The biggest free agent signing this off season, Ron Leary, was an UDFA as was Chris Harris.

    I third this. He isn't going anywhere. Why weaken one of our strengths. He can compete with the other backers and be rotated in and out giving everyone a rest. That is very important imo. And God for bid if something we shall not name happens, we have him to fall back on. SHAQ WILL BE BACK!!!

    This organization has been extremely fortunate over the years finding and developing the linebacker corps. Barrett is young with a bright future and a very team friendly contract as an ERFA. I agree, unless there is something unforeseen that changes the status quo, he will be in Denver this season and both he and the team will likely be in discussions of a new contract for the following year to lock him in.

    Denver was at their best in 2015 using a deep rotation at both the 3 inside line positions but also in the linebacking core. Barrett will get snaps, rotating those 3 players will be good. Plus you can never have enough pass rushers.

    I would only trade him if we got something tremendous in return. For instance, if he were part of a package that got us Joe Thomas, I would do it. However, now that Ware has retired Shaq is more important than ever.
