Colorado weather is so crazy - yesterday I was outside running in the 70+ degree weather in shorts and a t-shirt; now I'm staring at several inches of blowing snow out our window. Sweet.
So speaking of Colorado, the Denver Broncos have acquired Keary Colbert in free agency to beef up their crew of receivers. Hmm. I'm not entirely ready to pass judgment on Colbert yet since I think he's had a dicey situation as of late in Carolina. But I'm kind of surprised that this is the best we could do with WRs. Perhaps we're saving up our big moves for changes on the D, as is desperately needed. But enough on the Broncos - there are all sorts of other free-agency moves worth noting:
- Bernard Berrian heads to Minnesota while Lance Briggs stays in Chicago
- Donte Stallworth joins the Browns
- Justin Smith joins the 49ers to strengthen their pass rush
- Jerry Porter signed with the Jags, who have also brought in Troy Williamson and Cleo Lemon. Will Jerry Porter be their #1 WR? Not sure you can really assess someone based on how well they played in Oakland (does anyone actually play well in Oakland?), so I'm willing to give Porter a try.
