Over the weekend the Broncos signed Renaldo Hill and Brian Dawkins to contracts, and now apparently are in the mix to try and sign Ravens Safety, Jim Leonhard. Marvez had earlier reported that Leonhard had a verbal agreement in place with his Ex-Coach, Rex Ryan and the New York Jets. So, it seems the Broncos may be in a bidding war for his services.
Leonhard came on strong toward the end of the 2008 season, and would be a great young addition to the team, I just wonder why they would go after this guy after already signing two vets? And why would he want to sign in Denver if there were already two starters in place. Maybe Hill will go back to corner?
I’ll say this much. With all the fishy talk surrounding Jay, I’m surprised to see the Broncos still able to sign free agents. You would think these free agent players would want to ask about the situation. McDaniels and Xanders must have some good answers. It makes me believe there was more smoke, than fire, surrounding the Cutler trade talks.
Update: Well, Schefter is now reporting that Leonhard HAS signed his deal with the Jets.
