Broncos made trade offer for Tyrod Taylor

Would appear to contradict previous La Canfora report that Keenum to Broncs was close to a done thing.

Does indicate that Denver is not optimistic about Cousins and will follow the strategy of acquiring a placeholder QB, as well as drafting a QB, either at #5 or trade up.

There was previous report of Elway engaging Browns in trade up talk at the combine. If today's other moves solidify Cleveland taking their own QB at #1, NYG becomes the top trade up spot at #2.
Fishing for QBs - ( New Window )
Doesnít mean they didnít want both

Keenum and Taylor. All of their QBs are terrible, adding 2 QBs makes sense.
Tyrod Taylor!?

I think he sucks. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Are teams souring on this years QBs

It seems like that or all the QBs being over analyzed like Marino was?

I feel as though I'm playing a part in a familiar conversation but, no, acquiring the temporary placeholder is not an indictment of the QB draft class.

For Denver fans, Cousins is the only alternative to drafting a first round QB, and they're not optimistic.

The amount of veteran QB's out there

Is enticing to teams looking to improve their ability to compete and add to the number of talented young QB's in the draft this is a loaded pool.

Ironically, we have a vet QB and a young unproven QB and everyone wants to draft another one.
Actually, I see more of the "desperation"

that was suggested in a post above. Because Cousins seems to be the only vet QB who is really seen as a long term "answer".

When the music stops and Cousins picks a chair, that is going to leave a lot of teams left standing. And left wondering who is going to put the package together to jump ahead on draft day.

Broncos, Jets, Cardinals and Bills are the most obvious and probably enough to form a critical mass of competition.

Nobody wants to pay cousins $90 to 100m

And nobody should feel comfortable doing so.
