    Lets hope the chargers sign two or three free angents today.

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      hopefully they aren’t all ex Colts

      • Padraigh Keogh

        Yeah especially not Trent Richardson.

    • arnie

      With $5.8 mil in cap room, they better come cheap.

  • BoltAZ

    C’mon man!! Let’s get a NT!
    Like DB sign welcome to the Chargers.
    Now let’s address our CB needs too. Bolt Up

  • Pels04

    Ware is a officially a Bronco. Says Fansided according to Wikipedia…..so it may or may not be true

  • 619chargers4life

    Were so broke !

    • Stefanie Smith

      If the Saints can put together that Jairus Byrd deal with less cap space than the Chargers, I don’t want to hear that our cap space is the problem. If the Chargers wanted to do it, they would. They don’t want to.

      I get antsy and a little unnerved when we do nothing to at least keep pace with the competition.

      • 619chargers4life

        I definitely feel you

      • Preston Niedert

        I think they might be wating for Revis or Steve smith to be cut there a way for the chargers To Sign ether one.

        • Derek

          I’m for it!!

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            I wonder if Revis goes greed (Raiders) or signs with a playoff contender on a 2-3 year deal close to what Talib got? I wouldn’t mind Steve Smith either but still want us to draft a bad ass WR.

          • Derek

            Figure Steve can give us a #1 wr keepin Allen from a sophomore slump and let us draft a develpmental talent like green was in the fourth. Allowing us to focus on defense as we haven’t in free agency

  • Austin C.

    Hopefully we can bring in Randy Starks for a something around a 2 year deal, and then a guy like Rodgers-Cromartie would be perfect.

    • Stefanie Smith

      Randy Starks out. NFL.com is reporting he is signing with the Dolphins.

      • arnie

        Every player knows it’s free money in Miami.

        • Preston Niedert

          What about DRC he would be nice pick up and he could stick it to the donkeys lol or the chargers blow us all away and sign Revis that would take away the donkeys thunder.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      starks just re-signed with the dolphins

      • Austin C.

        Damn…

  • Padraigh Keogh

    Earl Mitchell is gone to Dolphins.4 years, $16m, $9m guarenteed. Too rich. Not many DT left.

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    How about the Vikings old man Kevin Williams for NT? He’s 33 could give us a year stop gap to figure out NT next year, was more productive then Raji the last 3 years and he’s got pass rush abilities because he’s a giant. It’s kinda Williams – Raji – Cam “God no” Thomas or Aubrayo Franklin at this point in FA

    • arnie

      You know what, the longer they stay on the market, the better it is for the Chargers. I know making a move on mitchel could’ve given the team a potential starter, however with a lot of holes to fill, that would have limited what TT could do elsewhere. So look at it this way Freeney wanted $8 mil year on a 2 year deal. He sat, for while. He signed for half that.

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        Ya I don’t mind the way TT is doing it at all, it’s all going to blow up in the Bronco’s face one way or another. I’d wait it out and sign a vet NT to a cheap deal, if we could get Williams for 1-2 Mil for a year or two that would be sweet.

  • Derek

    I hope since were “building through the draft we are more aggressive to get who we want. Trade up n down

  • Pels04

    There it is. Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 1m

    Filed to ESPN: Pending a physical, former Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware reached agreement with Broncos on 3-year, $30M contract include $20M gtd.

    • Stefanie Smith

      We need to work on at least putting up the pretense that we will be ready to compete. This is getting silly.

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        Line Fluker up on him all day, problem solved. I’m kinda hoping his skills have really regressed now and he’s not hungry lol. Freakin Bronco’s PM must be playing for free this year lol.

  • navw21

    Hey Denver… GO F’ YOURSELVES

  • Pels04

    Now it will just be even funnier when the Broncos lose in the Superbowl again

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Bronco’s should go ultimate boom or bust now, trade all their picks to the Jags and get WR Sammy Watkins to replace Decker.

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      then get Sproles and score 68 points a game, then lose to Seattle lol
