    Broncos deal Middlebrooks to Niners for Engelberger

    WTH? Why do we need another DE?

    Sigh. You watch, Middlebrooks will go to the 49ers and have a stellar season. I really don't like this move. Maybe I'll warm up to it.
    I bleed orange and blue!!!


    Rest in peace, Darrent.

    I adopted Domenik Hixon!!

    Over here in Winer nation local sports stations seem to think the Broncos got the better of this trade.

    Well

    Why did they do that? Here's a list of possible reasons:

    - Simply, Shanahan had enough of Middlebrooks, saw a trade opportunity where he considers is getting overall a gain in worth, no matter position.

    - This could say something about how Pryce, Brown and Ekuban are doing with their injuries. Maybe it's insurance, and the price of the insurance policy is Middlebrooks.

    - The other CBs showed good things: Williams, Paymah, Foxworth, Alexander, Shoate probably are perceived as competent replacements (actually, I have a good feeling for Alexander).

    - Health concerns with Middlebrooks.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I think that he's here for insurance. I would like to think that it's the first cause. Anyway, let's wait and see.

    I agree with you Amigo Bronco about waiting to see how things shape up. A lot of people thought we needed another DL in the draft and now the staff bring in a Vet instead of drafting one. Will just have to wait to see how wise this was. Like most offseason moves.

    the denver rotation on the line will be great brown and engleberger are speed guys that get to the qb along with Ebenzer well be able to keep fresh guys that can get to the qb this is making the loss of hawyard a distant memory ... although trading middlebrooks could end up hurting them .being that it was the other questionable roster spot i think the deffensive line should help make up for it ...but i am with yall with the wait and see
