Orton Working Towards Miami – We have an Adam Schefter confirmation that Kyle Orton is in the building at Dove Valley trying to hammer out a re-structured contract with the Dolphins to help facilitate a trade of his services to Miami. Vic Lombardi is saying the Dolphins are for sure dangling a 3rd but Denver would like a 2nd round pick. The latter probably won’t happen.
Broncos lose out on DeAngelo Williams in Free Agency – NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi has confirmed that free agent runningback DeAngelo Williams has opted to stay in Carolina for 5 years at 43 million total rather than be reunited with John Fox here in Denver. This is the 2nd set back Denver has been dealt in as many days after many a fan would’ve like to see them land Barry Cofield. The DT landed with Mike Shanahan in D.C. Mike Klis confirmed via twitter that Denver was also pursuing DE Charles Johnson but lost that bidding war to the Panthers as well.
Eric Weddle Re-Signs with San Diego, Made Highest paid Safety Ever – Here is a little Schadenfreude fans can enjoy. The Chargers just locked up Safety Eric Weddle at $40 Million over 5 years, thus making him the highest paid safety in the history of the NFL. Tough that he’s back in the division but it’s nice to see a rival vastly overpay for an above average safety.
Oakland is in heavy pursuit of OT Jared Gaither – The Raiders are looking to bolster their offensive line with the addition of offensive tackle Jared Gaither. Nothing set in stone, the two sides are still discussing numbers.
Nnamdi Asomugha to HOU, DAL, PHI or NYJ not a done deal – A fifth contender has emerged in talks regarding the highly coveted corner, the 49ers have cleared cap space and are making a serious run Nnamdi. Just take him out of the AFC West is all we ask.
