    waiver wire pickups

    Anyone youd like us to pick up come the first round of cuts?

    At this point it would just be speculation but im interested in hearing you guys throw some names out there..

    We might have the deepest overall team in the NFL. I say stick with who we've got.

    Well gradkowski and smith may be gone. Austin is on ir. Murphy the te we got after iring austin probably wont last. Marcel jensen is probably gone. I believe that bibbs is going back to ps. I also think dysert is done as well

    There will be room at some point. It is rumored that a bunch of def tackles could hit the market.

    We might have depth but are some of the starters that great? So having three guys at the spot that are not any better does not give you deep.

    Just give you lots of ok players.

    We are thin as can be at OL. Our depth looks terrible, our 1's did okay but it has been with some of the other teams stars not playing on D. IMO we definitely need to address Oline, probably after final cuts though, although picking up someone after first cuts who is more talented then the guy you let go is certainly a good idea, but not the best possibilty since it is first cuts.. We will see who becomes available.

    Speculated and talked about are

    Vernon davis, te
    Brandon mebane, dt
    Andy levitre, og
    Brandon carr, cb
    Jason babin, lb

    Would levitre be worth a look? Dont know how waiver works at this point of the year so even if he were to be cut, would he be taken before we had a shot?

    I don't think we will replace our starters across the OL. We might use the waiver wire to improve the depth with the backups. Shelley Smith is not playing well. Ben Garland and Gino Gradkowski are not locks for the final roster. Unfortunately, I also won't be susprised if Michael Schofield is waived.

    No, veterans cut at this time of year don't hit waivers; anyone cut out of training camp will be a free agent who can sign anywhere.

    Veterans only go on waivers after the trade deadline (though I can't remember when that is... week 10, maybe?).

    This seems likeliest at this point. I don't really know any names of capable guys on the bubble, though, except for possibly Zane Beadles (though even with him, I'm not sure it's the right situation).

    I'm sure it's been talked to death already, and I know it won't happen, but Evan Mathis really could be a good pickup for us. Max Garcia has been playing well, but if we could sign Mathis to start, Garcia could be a great backup for the entire interior line.

    Considering how far down we are to claim someone worth wild, we'd have to trade for a player.

    I wonder if Elway could find any wild guys?

    Elway has found cast offs of other teams at all stages of the season. Ya never know what could turn up.

    Beadles is currently listed as the first team LG for the Jaguars. He has a big contract and is probably being pushed by 3rd round rookie A.J. Cann.

    If Beadles was to be released, he would be better than Garland and Smith IMO.

    Your dream came true as Evan Mathis was signed. Garcia will be a great interior backup and might even start a game or two.

    I wish Denver had Jacksonville's RT, since I could get a pretty cool jersey then.
