    As far as Monday Night is concerned, the damage may be done. AB kept his former teammates and coaches from focusing 100% on the Broncos. Whether or not Gruden can salvage some dignity in the eyes of his players and get the team back on track remains to be seen. AB is not the only questionable character/nutcase on the roster.
    It all reminds me of Terrell Owens. Too many teams mistakenly thought they could tame him and harness his talent, hoping that somehow he would settle down, behave professionally, and mature into a disciplined adult.

    Who's the next sucker for AB?

    AB makes TO look just eccentric, not living in an alternate universe as AB seems to be.

    Place your bets!

    What team will be underachievers enough to sign him now?
    I hope he has a "BIG" coat. It could be the Argonauts.

    Any professional in his right mind would not risk signing him.

    just saw a poll on GMFB

    Do you think AB gets another gig catching passes?

    20% yes

    I'm guessing some other team will take a chance on him, I don't believe he will be getting the pay day he was going to get though.

    Who'd of thunk it. Damn sure not me....

    Desperate enough? .... in fact the only probable team to actually risk it better not be desperate. I don't think any team rolls the dice on him. We all got a close look at it with Hard Knocks ........ and his constant news coverage. Need for attention and coping strategies might be what really motivated AB to be AB. He's a victim in his own eyes

    Ty Williams is their #1 now. He did good with Rivers throwing him the ball, but Carr is the same guy who turned Cooper into Dwayne Bowe. Waller fills Cook's role, and he has the tools to be a gamer. We couldn't defend tight ends the entire time Joseph was our coach, but that may be a different story under Fangio. Waller is a guy to keep an eye on. Harris should be able to handle Williams. Then, there's Hunter Renfrow....Nelson got a lot of targets last year, and Renfrow can definitely play, albeit he's a rookie.

    It better be a different story...we have got to get to where we can defend pretty much everything that comes at us.
