    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.

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

    Hmmmm

    Ummm, he was a second rounder....

    Pro's;
    Should be a solid backup, has played either side, can create turnovers.

    Alot of teams are headed 3-4, grabbing the 4-3 talent makes sense.

    A solid d-line is how you play the cb rule change, if we plan to groom our youth this year, it was a sensible trade,

    Con's
    but........we rarely play our youth so this is probably going to end up a WTF instead.............also it should be noted that the Bronco's stated that they didn't want to draft any d-line because of the abundance of players at the position.....then they add another body?

    Thats cuz Middlebrooks in injury prone, plus we have so much depth at cb, (young) but if we are to keep most of them, we need to dump off old baggage, plus he was costin a lot for how crappy he was

    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.
