Newly aquired Buckhalter named as a client involving a drug deal

Mike Anderson.

Travis Henry.

Correll Buckhalter?

Thursday's headlines include the Denver Broncos newly aquired RB, Correll Buckhalter, as a client in a drug trial today. Buckhalter denies the alleged allegations saying that there is no validity to the statement, and he hasn't been charged. However, if found guilty, Buckhalter would most likely face a suspension for quarter of the season.

Buckhalter, 30, played 8 seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles prior to signing his four-year, $10 million dollar deal on the first day of free agency, Febuary 27th and is expected to be the Broncos starting RB this season.

DEVLOPING RUMOR: Cutler's agent, Bus Cook, spotted in Buffalo

The Jay Cutler story and saga lives on. Normally I'd put the squash to rumors like this, but apparently there are several different sources are confirming this.

There could also be a possibility that Cook is there to discuss a deal with a different client of his, but one has to think that it has to be involving Cutler.

More to come as more develops.

Update(8:46 PM EST, 3/16/09) - is confirming this now. Apparently former Buffalo Bill offensive linemen, Ruben Brown, announced during his radio show that Cook was spotted in Buffalo on Monday.

Cook has no clients that are currently signed on the Bills roster, but there are 2 that are technically "on the trading block", those 2 include TE Tony Scheffler, and QB Jay Cutler.

Scheffler seems like the more obvious candidate to be heading to Buffalo, but, you never know.

Stay tuned.

Cutler(s) put Denver home up for sale

The Denver Broncos disgruntled pro bowl quarterback, Jay Cutler, has just shown another sign that he doesn't want to be in Denver.

And no, this is not a re-post. This is an ongoing story that will not stop until Jay Cutler is traded. According to the Denverpost, Jay Cutler's parents home is up on the market. The house is selling for $835,000.

Now as I said before, us spectators may be looking a little too far into this. But after further consideration, yeah, no. There is no outside the box to this situation. What you see is what you get. It is what it is. I'm going to say it's pretty safe to assume that Denver Broncos QB Jay Cutler has played his last game as a Denver Bronco, and the Broncos are going to have some extra draft picks on the weekend of April 25th and 26th to help shore up a defense that needs it.

Which brings me to this.

Before all you Denver fans get upset, frustrated, and start a mob headed for Josh McDaniels office. You have to realize what this situation is indirectly doing to the Denver Broncos team.
As much as it seems that he is ruining it, he's not.

If we trade Cutler, and we bring in a guy like, oh, I don't know, let's say... Aaron Curry(the top LB prospect in this years draft out of Wake Forest), or B.J. Raji (the best defensive linemen prospect in this years draft out of Boston College), do you realize the ramifications it would have on the defense?

With Curry, the Broncos would get a young presence in the middle of the defense that would bring a fierce, versatile style of play, along with irreplaceable vocal leadership qualities that you can't find in just any player. Curry can play both OLB in a 3-4, and a 4-3, which is exactly what the Broncos need. Not only would he impact the defense alone, but he'd make others around him better. Most noteably, Broncos LB, D.J. Williams. We'd finally get to see Williams with a supporting cast, we'd finally get to see the developed veteran LB at his best. We saw the potential in his rookie year, when he was playing at his natural LB position at the WILL(Weakside), and playing next to Broncos great, Al Wilson.

Curry brings that back.

And just think of this lineup in a 4-3. Williams - Davis - Curry

And now this lineup, in a 3-4. Dumervil/Moss - Davis - Williams - Curry

That has the potential to be very, very dangerous.

So now let's talk about B.J. Raji. What would he do for the defense? Well, he'd become the Broncos 3-4 NT that they crucially need if they want to have any chance at running the 3-4 scheme. Not to mention, they'd have a great 4-3 DT as well. Raji can do it all. Very athletic, and would create a disruptive presence, that would allow the second level of defenders(The LBs), to come in a make plays.

Either way, the Broncos can't go wrong with either of these two men. But if we had the #1 pick through a Cutler trade, and we'd have the ability to take either, or? I'd take Curry in a heartbeat.

But back to the Cutler situation, I'm going to leave it at this...

I don't think Josh McDaniels signed QB Chris Simms earlier this month, to be a backup QB.

There will be a deeper analysis in a video later this afternoon.

Stay tuned.

Cutler puts Denver home up for sale

The Denver Broncos disgruntled pro bowl quarterback, Jay Cutler, has just shown another sign that he doesn't want to be in Denver.


According to the Denverpost, Cutler has put his house in Denver up for sale and has it priced at $2 million dollars. The value when he bought it was $1.34 million.

Now, us spectators may be looking too far into this, but that's what we're here for. Cutler has expressed his disinterest in playing for new head coach, Josh McDaniels. He has shown disgust with the Broncos organization this past week despite talking to them on Tuesday. And he hasn't been in Denver since the day that he was apparently being shopped, it all has to play into the story somehow.

Basically what I'm trying to say here is... Cutler's future(or lack-thereof) in Denver is not looking too bright, and he could be on his way out sooner than expected.

Ohio State's Jenkins on Broncos' radar

With the NFL draft rapidly approaching(6 weeks, yes!), coaches and general managers are spending hours upon hours trying to put together those extra pieces that could make a difference and essentially win the team a championship.

And apparently, Malcolm Jenkins of Ohio State may be one of those pieces for the Broncos.

Per Albert Greer of, the Broncos are expected to privately workout the All-American cornerback next Friday in Columbus.

Jenkins is a versatile, athletic player, and could definitely be a great fit in Denver with Champ Bailey on the decline of his career. One of the elite prospects in this years draft class, the rated the top cornerback, however many feel that he's better suited at safety and will not make a good cornerback in the NFL.

Regardless, he'd be a franchise player in the secondary to build around, and definitely would be an upgrade over any backup safety, and an upgrade over any other cornerback not named Champ on the Broncos roster right now.

Was L.T. planning on becoming a Bronco?

With the possibility at the beginning of the week of LaDainian Tomlinson being released if a new deal wasn't reached, the possible suitors that expressed interest in him came out Thursday night. According to Adam Schefter, there were 3 teams interested in Tomlinson's services. The New Orleans Saints, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Denver Broncos.

If LaDainian Tomlinson had been released, one has to believe that the Broncos would have been the likely destination if the price was right. Just think about it, not only would he have gone to a team that would desperately would need him and want him. But he'd also stay in the division that he's been in his entire career. Being able to play his ex-team, the San Diego Chargers, twice a year, plus an annual visit to the city of San Diego. On addition to that, he'd be able to compete for a division championship against his former team and he'd thrive off of that given his competitive nature.

Although now that he has re-worked a deal with the Chargers, seeing LaDainian Tomlinson is something that you can only imagine in your head, and there is, well, no possibility that Tomlinson ends up with the Broncos any time in his career now.

It was a nice thought for a little, however.

Cutler and Broncos meet, but not face to face

Just as I mentioned that there has been little to no news in the Bronco world, the meeting that was expected between head coach Josh McDaniels and Jay Cutler, happened. Unfortunately, it was not face to face, but instead through conference calls. And as CBS 4 of Denver put it, issues still remain between them.

Also, apparently Broncos owner Pat Bowlen was also involved with the conference calls, and this mess has yet to be sorted out. Apparently, also, Bowlen placed 2 calls to Cutler last week, and either call has yet been returned.

This entire situation continues to dig deeper and deeper, and I think that the Broncos could have very well dug a hole so deep that they won't be able to climb out of it to this point.

The Broncos offseason program starts this coming Monday, and Cutler is expected to show up, but to this point, who really knows? This mess has yet to be sorted out, and things seem to be going from bad to worse in Dove Valley.

Stay tuned.
