Josh McDaniels continues to get rid of Denver’s good players. Chiefs fans continue to laugh.
The Broncos sent disgruntled TE Tony Scheffler to the Lions in a 3 way trade involving the Eagles and linebacker, Ernie Simms.
Here is how it breaks down:
The Lions trade LB Ernie Simms to the Eagles.
The Eagles give Denver their 5th round pick (137) this year.
Denver gives their 7th round pick this year and TE Tony Scheffler to the Lions.
Got all that?
Kidding about the Donks aside, I can’t blame McDaniels for wanting to build the team as he sees fit. That means getting rid of guys who clash with him, which is why we have seen the departure of Marshall and now Scheffler.
Denver has used these trades, along with he Jay Cutler deal last year, to stock pile a ton of picks. If the Broncos hit on all of those picks they could be a force. If they whiff on most of them, they could be left old and depleted of young talent.
I am hoping for the latter. Sorry Denver. =)
