As of right now probably Shantee Orr and Morlon Greenwood at OLB and Kailee Wong/Sam Cowart at MLB.

I'm sure the coaches have a first cut at a depth chart after the past couple of weeks. Too bad no one can spare a reporter to ask 'em.

Probably the only spot which is close to locked down at this point is Greenwood at WLB. SLB and MLB are up to training camp battles among Sam Cowart, Kailee Wong, Shantee Orr, Terry Pierce, Charlie Anderson and DaShon Polk.

I want to see Orr more, it seemed he was the only player not going along with the losing plan. He was doing TOO good for the Texans.

That is because neither Vince Young or Reggie Bush play LB

That's what I heard and I don't see how he's gonna beat out Cowart at MLB anyway. That seems like a lock to me.

Yeah, I should have included him as a next season wild card in the equation rather than a training camp battler.

Cowart was brought in to add leadership to the linebacker corps, and with Wong out, he is the #1 fit into the MLB position (JMO). The stuff I have read about the guy indicates that he is well respected by his teammates, even if his numbers aren't the most impressive, but that could be due in part to the fact that he is injury-prone (the only aspect of this acquisition I don't like, especially since Wong is already out).

http://www.startribune.com/dynamic/m...?story=5767774

For last year, he is listed as having 71 tackles and 2 sacks.

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/player?statsId=4299

I compared that with Orr and Greenwood's performances from 2005. Orr had 34 tackles and 7 sacks. Greenwood had 82 tackles and 2 sacks.

I hope the sack ratio increases with the shift to the 4-3.

cowart will be the starter at MLB...greenwood will be the starter at the WLB...now the question is who is the starter at SLB...wong would be if he was healthy...i think we'll see a TC battle between orr and polk...maybe even rainer...then you throw in a draft pick possibily...should be a good training camp

Name one realistic scenario where we bring in A.J. Hawk...

No one will trade up to #1, because they can trade to #2 and get what they want. If we to think about trading down, then with WHO? No one in there wants to trade up to #1. I think Hawk is a big time stretch.

Cowart and Greenwood seem solid starters. Orr is high powered and ought to get the best chance to start.

Rainier is depth, and as my brother is a Lions fan, said he is terrible in pass coverage, but was a good signing for providing depth.

Terry Pierce was an interesting signing... anyone have the background on him and the dirt as to why we grabbed him up so fast? Was he a Kub favorite in denver?

Pierce was a mid 2nd round pick but has not had much playing time because the Broncos have 3 time in the last 4 years pro-bowler Al Wilson at MLB.

Has to be more to the story to have signed him in mid-January... was he released or contract expired, or cut? It is just an odd timing to sign someone before Free agency period... there must be circumstances around him.

From http://www.thehuddle.com/nfl_team_rp...around-DEN.php

"The Broncos used a 2003 second-round pick on Terry Pierce, but Pierce never developed and was released after two nondescript seasons. "

Seems to be a project of sorts, that used to have upside. Orr I think is our solid SLB.

I think Orr has a lot of potential, he played with a lot of fire in his belly last year.

Who knows what training camp holds, but I like Orr, Cowart, Greenwood right now as starters.

I want to see our LB that plays for the Berlin Thunder, his name is Andre Torrey

he is a true playmaker for NFL Europe, just watch him play

he is a LB that has a nose for the ball like Troy Polamaulu does, he will make in the NFL for sure

O yea we just re signed Kenneth Pettway y not give him a shot, I mean u paid him put him on the field.
