    Seems to me that speculation about losing Al because of money is misguided. I think it has more to do with the need for improvement on the D, and Al provides a means to an end. Bates is now the D-Coord. And he has a vision of what he wants to develop, and I think he is trying to pull off one move in a series to get to where he wants to be personnel-wise. If Tuck pans out as a DE, and the Broncos get a third or better for Al in addition to Tuck, then the Broncos will be moving towards improving the team as a whole. First pick then should be a DT like Harrell. An LB in 2. S in three.

    They are working hard to put together a better team on D. It's what everyone wanted to see. It may be a bit painful and gut-wrenching to get there, but it needs to be done.....

Get a DE in the draft early. If we were to trade with the Giants we would get their 1st round. Package our pick with their #1 pick and move up to get Gaines or keep them both and get a Safety and DE. The offense is set and I am sure they will add depth in the draft. It could work!
    Briggs is a Will. Gold is a Will. D.J. can play Will. Why would the Broncos want another Will?

    Don't think so.

    I doubt this will happen, but I would be content - it's a longshot. Plus Chicago is not going to let Briggs go anytime soon.
