Report: Broncos have no interest in taking on Antonio Brown's contract

Scratch one team off the list of potential Antonio Brown suitors. Despite an NFL Network report that the Broncos were among the teams most interested in trading for Brown, Mike Klis of 9 News in Denver reports that Broncos General Manager John Elway is emphatically not interested in Brown. Specifically, the Broncos don't think Brown is worth the price, which includes a $12.625 million salary this year and possibly a $2.5 million roster bonus.

John Elway unsure Kyler Murray can play under center

John Elway thinks Kyler Murray is a great talent, but wonders if he can be successful in a particular offense (his) because of his height. Elway's specific concern was about the 5-10-ish Murray's ability to play under center. “I will say this, having played the position: when you're shorter and you're in shotgun, it doesn't have nearly the effect because you see much better out of shotgun,” the Broncos executive told reporters at the Scouting Combine.

John Elway: Kyler Murray's height matters if he's taking snaps under center

It's worth the constant reminder this time of year that anything any NFL team says about a draft prospect could be a lie. Also, it's worth noting that Denver Broncos general manager John Elway once drafted Brock Osweiler over Russell Wilson, presumably because Osweiler was taller. Criticizing Elway has become a sport in itself recently, especially when it comes to his evaluation of quarterbacks.

John Elway: Reviewing pass interference “won't work”

Because the Saints just got jobbed out of a trip to the Super Bowl because of a missed pass interference call, and because we have 12 more days to fill until then, there will be plenty of talk about the feasibility of using replay review to fix an obvious problem for the NFL. While other leagues are able to find a solution without lengthening their games, there remains a resistance to opening that particular box for fear that Pandora and all her meddling friends will wreck the game.
