    how tempting would it be?

    If the broncos were to offer up Talib and Clady and say a conditional late round pick this year or next, how far up in the draft could the broncos move to be in position to possibly draft the qb of the near future?

    I'm not sure if any of the QBs in this draft warrant such an investment. We'll see next year if any of them are rookie starters. If any are, we'll see how they do. Even the highest rated ones seem more like guys who should sit for a year before starting.

    Elway needs to keep the defense elite while rebuilding the offense. I think the defense can be elite after losing Malik, Trevathan and Bruton. If you loose a player like Talib it gets much harder to play at the same level.

    I know we all want to fill the "franchise QB" void after losing Manning - let's be patient. We'll need the defense to carry the load this season. The offense can be productive with Sanchez - focus on depth for the line.

    I wouldn't have a problem with letting Clady go in a trade attempt to move up because we just signed his replacement. As much as I dislike Talib the man we don't have a replacement for him and I wouldn't want to remove that part of the defense. If there was a viable option and if we knew we wouldn't miss a beat without him than yeah, let the walking personal foul go.

    The no fly zone is tight, don't want to mess with it, I'm sure talib will reign in his personal fouls if he has to.

    Cladys going to be cut and we can move up without trading talib.

    Talib had 5 PF/unsportsmanlike penalties all year and all of a sudden he's the "walking personal foul". And the first one in the Super Bowl was clearly undeserved. Guy took a shot at him after the whistle and he took exception to it and got flagged like the 2nd guy normally does. And as good as our defense was, if you have to grab a guy's facemask to keep him from scoring a TD and it's only a 1-yard penalty, I'll take that all day. Goal-line stands happen all the time, and the difference between a FG and a TD could be huge. All things considered, Talib would be one of the last guys I'd trade. His talent level and versatility are a rare combination at CB in this league.

    If we could get Wentz or Goff with essentially just giving up Talib and a late rounder, it should be considered. Let them sit behind Sanchez for a year, and take over next year. I saw earlier that Elway and Co really like Wentz.

    Lol. You dont trade a top 10 cb to move up and draft a guy who's going to sit for a year.
