Trade Deadline Thread - DT To Houston for 4th Rd pick and 7th rd swap

Recommended Posts

It's not often that the return for veteran players in NFL trades is a pleasant surprise. Nice work.

A+ return.   Let's get a 5th/6th for Ray, and a 4th for Roby?  One can dream!

All indications are that Roby is 100% not getting re-signed and Yiadom needs to see the field. That one should be as much of a no-brainer as trading DT. Teams are always looking for corners, and Roby is at least an average 2 (I think the regression from Talib skews our fanbase's perspective on what his value actually is relative to the rest of the league).

Not true - he got Wolfe extended in-season in 2015-16 (while we were still in the playoffs) and had offered the same earlier to Malik Jackson (who declined and chased the money).   He has offered team-friendly deals to guys in-season in the final year of their contracts, if no one wants it, then he waits. 

Now, Elway doesn't offer in between the 3rd-4th year, that's very true.   That's the whole discussion we had on Paradis - whether to extend him during TC, or wait during in-season/offseason.   

What I said is true. Wolfe and Jackson had already played out their contracts an were a few months from FA. 

We don't extend while a player still has a year on his contract.

Why aren't there more Derek Wolfe rumors?

If there aren't any rumors, they're probably not looking to trade him.

Hard to believe that. Maybe he's not a valuable piece for suitors - but I'd think he'd at lease garner some interest from a contender looking for a 1yr rental.

We'd save $8.5m by cutting him this offseason. Pretty much a no-brainer. Why not get something out of him? (if we can...)

I feel like he's a JAG at this point.

Got a lot of JAGs not getting paid like JAGs on this squad.

I think Wolfe is a locker room “glue” guy. DT was as well and you can’t trade all of them. I think DT’s trade was as much about a salary dump and gettting Sutton on the field more. We don’t have a waiting-in-the-wings replacement for Wolfe.  

As for DT he was much maligned, both fairly and unfairly at times, but he is an all-time great Bronco and someone who was teriffic in the community.  Thanks, DT.

Thanks DT for everything! Probably should have been more thankful for his play. We needed to do this! Hope he can make some plays for my fantasy QB (Watson)!

Ben Allbright on Twitter saying Shane Ray may be moved. God I hope so, just another bust in Elway's long list of misses. 

Ray has never been able to stay healthy and thus get in a rhythm. His weight has always fluctuated and that has impacted what role he can have. I had high hopes for Ray when he was drafted, he had a nice career at Missouri against SEC competition and he tested well. He’s a player I think a change of scenery would greatly benefit.

I thought Elway got good value when Ray was drafted, but I never saw him as more than a Robert Ayers type, and we all now how well that worked out. It's also my main concern with Bradley Chubb. I don't doubt that he'll be a solid player for this team, but not a player that lives up to his top 5 draft billing. Hopefully I'm wrong, though.

Sure but a Barrett offer now while he’s playing out his final year  is clearly something Elway has done before.  That was the original point.
