    Robertson hitting the market will be interesting. While all the players realeased is interesting what got me the most was at the end of the article:

    Where was Robertson taken, #4 # 5 overall and as I recall somebody (the Jets) traded up to get him ? He's been a bust all the way around. Bad move
    by Shanny to pick him up.

    Well no one is gonna give him that big contract now. Broncos D was a complete mess. No one really performed on that side of the ball so im not so quick to call him a bust.

    Doing my best not to start a new thread but appearantly Dre Bly was released as well. Now, I think if there is a veteran corner out there that we could get on the cheap and still upgrade our CB position this is the guy.

    Key words: Verteran corner on the cheap still upgrade.

    About to turn 32, and a starter on one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL last year. No way. He was a disaster in Denver.

    Bly was never really that good. He has really good hands so he can get INT's, but as far as coverage is concerned, I think he is sub-par.

    Stickied to the top of the forum is a free agents thread that can be a home for discussion of folks like Bly.

    I'd love for the Texans to bring in the DT Robertson. I think he has a couple of good seasons left in him.
