    Look like McDaniels thinks that David Anderson is some version of Wes Welker.

    Of all our RFA's, I didn't expect Mr. Anderson to get the first offer sheet.

    KC sure has been active so far in free agency. I wonder how much they offered him.

    I'm fine with that. If we don't retain him I don't think it's that big of a loss. I don't consider him a playmaker. He catches and runs but I feel like he dropped the tough ones frequently.

    KC? This is Denver aka Houston North. Going for Gaffney and now DA.

    It will be interesting to see the offer.

    Hmm...local product of Denver.

    I'd sure hate to see Anderson leave, like him as the #4 wideout and backup punt returner. Guy plays his heart out.

    Interesting as well considering they just Signed Jabar Gaffney.

    Weird huh? Now the Broncos are trying to get our players. It shows how much better our team is. I wonder what the numbers are on this deal.

    Hopefully the contract isn't huge and we match it. Doubt we find anyone better with an extra 7th rounder. I know he was a 7th rounder but at that point there are more misses than hits by a large margin. He has improved every year as a player and his production has improved every year. Sounds like a really good locker room guy too, a bit of a clown.

    Look like he is really trying to mirror NE's style players...They signed two veteran :yawn: type RBs, Gaffney and now a Wes Welker wannabe. Reads like NE west.

    I like Anderson, I hope we match. People get too excited for picks, Anderson is better than a likely 7th. He gets first downs, blocks, and seems like a good locker room guy.

    Meh. Not fussed. Nobody who sports a mullet at any stage of their life deserves to be supported in any way, shape or form.


    Wouldn't be too displeased if we matched the offer though.

    Agreed. I love Anderson and think he is good enough to be our 3rd WR in the slot actually. Don't want to lose that guy.

    To have a 7th rounder contribute at all a few years out is probably above-average. No question he is worth more than a 7th round roll of the dice. I hope the offer sheet is one we can match easily.

    If the team was serious about getting rid of Jacoby Jones (I don't think so, I think they were trying to wake him up by letting that leak out), and if Anderson were to leave, our WR corps would suddenly go from a strength to something that needs to be addressed.

    Then again, this could be the draft to address it.

    What are the contract details? Does anyone know how RFA tendering works? I knew someone was gonna try and sign DA as soon as I saw he got a 7th round tender. I wish we could've bumped it up to a 3rd-4th round tender but I think its either the round they're drafted...then bumped to a 1st...then bumped to a 1st/3rd.

    I'd love to get him back unless of course he's getting starter/high # 3 money.

    We've already paid AD, AJ, and are gonna have to pay KW and OD. Unfortunately, unless its a bargain price I dont think we're gonna get to keep DA.

    Shows what a steal Kevin Walter was for a 7th round pick.

    why did we put such a low tender on him in the first place? he's certainly worth coughing up a 7th rounder for.

    Maybe. Personally I can't believe he's getting this much attention. I hope it's not too much because I think him being the #3 is solid. At least we would get fair compensation for him.

    Hope he doesn't leave. I thought he made some pretty good catches while he was here (And who can forget his string dance).

    I'm tipping this beer for you lightning mullet homey.
