    Graham, Eric Johnson, Jerramy Stevens, that's a strong FA TE class, we need to get someone from there this year

    if wiford's garbage because he drops a lot of balls, then what the hell is jerramy stevens?

    i just said in another thread, it would make sense for us to try improving our receiving corps through free agency rather than the draft, given the luck we've had drafting receivers, and the time it generally takes them to develop. . . . to me, drew bennett and kevin curtis are the best receivers on that list. . . bennett would probably be the best fit here-- he has the route running skills and reliable hands to be a good #2, and fill the need for a possession receiver, plus he has the size to be effective on jump balls and in the red zone, and i believe he's a solid blocker. . .

    curtis, on the other hand, has that blazer speed, and would be a nice deep threat. . . of course, i'm still hoping quincy morgan can fill that role for us, and in any case i don't see much of any chance that the rams will let curtis go. . . the titans may be a little more likely to part with bennett, as they have some nice young depth at WR, but i see them most likely keeping him as well. . . patrick crayton would be nice, but i think they like him a lot in dallas, and they have NOTHING at WR after terry "old man" glenn and the ticking time bomb-- he's probably the LEAST likely to be available. . . of those who ARE likely to be available, bobby engram is probably the best of a very weak bunch compared to the WRS who were on the market via trade or FA this past offfseason. . . .

    of the TEs, i agree with the consensus that dan graham would be a great addition, for his blocking skills as much as his receiving. . . he's a guy who would fit nicely here, especially as a denver native, and i highly doubt NE will make much effort to keep him with three other young TEs on the roster-- it's pretty obvious they drafted mills and thomas in preparation for graham's impending departure, and he's a guy i could quite easily see us targeting in the offseason. . . .

    i'd also be interested in eric johnson, and between his injury history and the acquisition of vernon davis, it's entirely possible that the niners will let him go. . . however, given that injury history, it would be foolish IMO to pay very much for him, unless he'd accept an incentive-laden contract-- he's not the type of guy you want to get into a bidding war over, even if you have the cap space for it. . .

    it'll be interesting to see how it works out, but i definitely won't be surprised if it's an area we look to address through FA. . . i certainly still hope that marshall and scheffler work out, but even if they do they're positions that could use more depth and talent, especially TE. . . .
    thanks dogfish
    i always look forward to when you post in depth previews before the game, so I am glad I could post something for you.

    As for your thoughts, I agree that Bennett would be great here. Perfect for us. Unfortunately, I think he will be the #1 WR available so I thnk he will be vastly over bid upon (the skins will get him to run their new 6 WR, no QB offense). Regardless, he might price himself out of our range. As for Kevin Curtis, I would imagine that the Rams will make a strong push to keep him. With Bruce getting older (I think he was Rod Smith's fav player when Rod was growing up ), I would imagine they will try to keep Curtis. But they havent locked him up yet so he may be an option. He is not exactly what I have in mind for our WR2, but I would take him. I think we need a big possession receiver type, like a Keyshaun Johnson without the baggage.

    The guy who I woudl really like us taking a crack at, is Ernest Wilford. He is a RFA, but I cant picture the Jags putting anythign but a low round tender on him. The yhave so much money locked up in WR already (2 first rders in Reggie Williams, and Matt jones), that they cnat afford to have a 3rd guy around at a high price. He is a big target 6ft4in, 223lbs, and hasnt had the opportunity to start in Jax, as he has been stuck behind Jimmy Smith, and some high profile draft picks.

    As for TE, Eric Johnson is a great receiving TE, but he cant stay healthy for a lick. I woud lbe worried about giving him a sizeable bonus. If he comes cheap, I am all for it. Otherwise Graham would be the guy I target.

    I actually like Stevens. I think the drops are part of the Seattle water, Darrel Jax went thru it, same with Koren Robinson when he was up there (but that was probably just the alcohol withdrawal). Just get him to train with Javon's crazy tennis ball palm thing. Then he wont have any more dropsies.

    obviously he's got a nice blend of size, speed, and athleticism. . . but he needs to learn not to mouth off to guys like joey "who let my dogs out" porter. . . .

    Spot on. I'm forced to watch many Cowboys' games and Crayton is pretty good. And it goes without saying that Bennett is a McCaffrey clone
    Thanks for everything Shanny :salute!:

    Either Eric Johnson, or Daniel Graham or Jeremy Stevens will come to Broncos and start at the TE, mark my word.

    I'd go with none of the above.......let our guys develop. Scheffler will be good and marshall or kircus can do the job.

    The possiblity of us actually getting someone, would have to be cheap.

    Boston or McCardell could be well suited. if ANY!

    I've pared it to seven I'd be interested in. Bennett, Curtis, and Wilford at receiver. Eric Johnson, Graham, and maybe Stevens at tight end. Ponder for returns.

    I include Wilford because, pass-dropping problems or no, he's got a nose for the end zone. Roughly one touchdown for every six catches last year.

    No hands? Bobby Engram is freakin' MR. THIRD DOWN. He's one of the most valuable receivers in the league because of his third down play...

    You'd be amazed at how a great QB makes average WR's look good. We start Cutler next year and our current receivers will be more than enough, I guarantee you.

But I think its best that we have another option, in case Marshall isnt ready yet. I think the lack of receiving threats is seriously hampering our offense.
    So without further adieu:


    Free Agent Wide Receivers

    Drew Bennett, UFA, Tennessee Titans
    Kevin Curtis, UFA, St. Louis Rams
    Marc Boerigter, UFA, Green Bay Packers
    David Boston, UFA, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Tyrone Calico, UFA, Tennessee Titans
    Patrick Crayton, RFA, Dallas Cowboys
    Andre' Davis, UFA, Buffalo Bills
    Bobby Engram, UFA, Seattle Seahawks
    Justin Gage, UFA, Chicago Bears
    D.J. Hackett, RFA, Seattle Seahawks
    Keenan McCardell, UFA, San Diego Chargers
    Shaun McDonald, UFA, St. Louis Rams
    Samie Parker, RFA, Kansas City Chiefs
    Jerome Pathon, UFA, Atlanta Falcons
    Willie Ponder, UFA, New York Giants
    Edell Shepherd, RFA, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Travis Taylor, UFA, Minnesota Vikings
    Scottie Vines, RFA, Detroit Lions
    Bobby Wade, UFA, Tennessee Titans
    Peter Warrick, UFA, Seattle Seahawks
    Kelley Washington, UFA, Cincinnati Bengals
    Alvis Whitted, UFA, Oakland Raiders
    Ernest Wilford, RFA, Jacksonville Jaguars
    The players I'm interested in are bolded.

    I think Bennett could make for a solid addition and would be an effective compliment to Javon (with Cutler throwing him the ball, IMO). However, in no way am I interested in getting into a mass bidding war for someone who will probably be the cream of a weak-ass crop. If he comes at a good price, cool. If not, pass.

    DJ Hackett is one of the better backup receivers in the league. He enters, catches a 30 yard bomb on a 3rd and 17, then leaves. I would be very interested in acquiring him for field-stretching purposes. The CU connections are just a bonus...

    Shaun McDonald was a player we should've targeted this offseason (he'd probably be our 3rd receiver). He offers an almost identical skillset to Kevin Curtis', and will undoubtedly come at a fraction of the price. I'm not interested in ponying up for Curtis, as I don't think he'd be an effective starter outside of St. Louis.

    Kelley Washington is a bit of a sleeper to me. I think, with his size and speed, he could come in and surprise, or he could just be the player that he is now...a valuable 3rd receiver. He's more than expendable in Cinci, so he's as good as gone.

    Eric Johnson, UFA, San Francisco 49ers
    Kyle Brady, UFA, Jacksonville Jaguars
    Daniel Graham, UFA, New England Patriots
    Ben Hartsock, RFA, Indianapolis Colts
    Zach Hilton, UFA, New Orleans Saints
    Reggie Kelly, UFA, Cincinnati Bengals
    Jerramy Stevens, UFA, Seattle Seahawks
    Boo Williams, UFA, New York Giants
    Jerramy Stevens is a wet dream. He'd be an ideal addition and would be a mammoth boost to our redzone offense. He's not leaving Seattle though, and the good thing is Scheffler figures to be an almost identical player if he develops properly.

    I guess Dan Graham would be a nice addition. He brings more than Alexander as a blocker and is at least adequate as a receiver.

    One guy that's missing is George Wrighster of Jacksonville. He's a bit of a sleeper FA in my eyes, because he'll come cheap (even off a breakout year--already over his career high in receptions) and he could put up some respectable numbers. He's a big body, and his athleticism is still pretty good from what I can see.
