The Denver Broncos had quite the transformative offseason in 2018. They experienced wholesale change at key positions on offense and lost a dog or two on defense Youth Brandon Marshall Jersey
, but overall what personnel move likely hurt them the most in their immediate future? That is a question our staff hoped to address in today’s roundtable discussion. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.What was the Broncos’ worst personnel move this offseason/preseason?Scotty: Probably could have done more at tight end. Lots of question marks there.Sadaraine: I don’t care how much of a locker room problem or coaching issue Aqib Talib was. Trading him away was a big time mistake that changes what Joe Woods can and can’t do with his defensive play calling. I did not see Talib as a guy that lost a step. He is, was, and will always be a straight up dawg and our coach should have been able to make it work for a player of his talent.Pete: Dumping Aqib Talib. I hated it when the idea was shopped around and I hate it even more right now. Bradley Roby isn’t up to snuff for replacing Talib. Sure, he’s ok, but he’s no Talib. We robbed from our biggest position of strength and turned it into a liability as teams are able to throw all over us. Chris Harris Jr. can’t cover everyone at the same time, and sadly there isn’t much behind him. Maybe Adam Jones can play, but the last time he did, he wasn’t any good. This isn’t 2015/2016 anymore.Taylor: Trading Aqib Talib away was the worst thing the Broncos did to their roster this offseason. It may have been necessary for cap & long term planning reasons, and possibly even for locker room reasons, but it turned the team’s greatest strength into a question mark in one fell swoop. If the moves made to replace him don’t work out & the secondary struggles, we’ll cringe when looking back at this trade.Jeff: Talib will be at the top of the list for most, but the writing was on the wall with him, and there have been reports that he was beginning to be an issue in the locker room, not getting along with Vance Joseph, so it was probably best that he go somewhere else. I think the Menelik Watson situation was worse and cost Denver a lot of unneeded cap space. Now, I know some of it was out of their control because he waited to have surgery so they would be forced to keep him, but that whole situation was a mess and they now are ranked higher in dead money than they have been for the last 5 yearsLaurie: Trading Aqib Talib was the move I hate the most, but I understand it and don’t think it was the worst for the team. But keeping Menelik Watson and his expensive salary was a dumb move, easily the worst (late) decision by the front office.Hart: Keeping Menelik Watson on the roster as long as they did. They could have gotten rid of him much sooner and not had to have paid him over six million dollars to do nothing for the franchise. He should have been released at the end of last season.Adam: Names like Aqib Talib and Menelik Watson are certainly the obvious places to point for most fans. And those aren’t wrong. I’ll go another direction. Retaining Vance Joseph could be the move that comes back to bite this team in the end. Of course I am hopeful that Joseph will have learned from his 2017 debacle White Matt Paradis Jersey
, but if not, it’s clear that keeping him around was a huge mistake.Joe R: Talib and Watson for the reason’s mentioned above, both illustrate Elway’s biggest weakness as a GM. He believed Talib was replaceable by Langley, (a project who had shown nothing to that point) or Brock (a player who was an afterthought in free agency).Ian St: To change it up, wasting another offseason on Paxton Lynch instead of just moving on.Chad Kelly: ‘I’ve got to watch more film than ever before’ It was #ChadKellyWatch on #BroncosTwitter today as the once “Mr. Irrelevant” draft pick became a very relevant quarterback on the field, officially moving up the depth chart to No. 2.If you’re a big Chad Kelly fan, the quarterback’s comments after his practice with the twos today will only confirm your support. Crediting his teammates for his move up the depth chart, it was as if Kelly spent some time at the Peyton Manning School of Pressers.“Those guys made the plays, they got me in the right protections and the guys with the ball in their hands made plays,” Kelly said. “Like I said, it’s not just me that got to that position. It’s those other guys around me that helped me get there.”But Kelly is the first to admit that he still has work to do and that only increases now that he’s working with the second team offense.“You just have to work hard. That’s really what it is. Even the best ones are still working extremely hard. They don’t know everything,” Kelly said, adding that as just a second-year guy, he “doesn’t know anything.” “I have to watch more film than I ever have before,” he said, “and you know when your time is called, you better be ready to step up and go.”Earlier in the day on “First & 10 @ 10,” Ryan Edwards, Andrew Mason and Steve Atwater talked with Matt Boyer of Broncos TV about whether the “Kelly hype” is real - and the consensus was “yes.”“We have been talking about how well he commanded huddle in training camp Youth Darian Stewart Jersey
, and that chemistry definitely translated [to Saturday’s game],’” Boyer said, adding that Kelly had “great command coming up to the line and his awareness of the defense was amazing.”When it was finally time for practice and Kelly was with the twos, #BroncosTwitter went on full Kelly alert.Edwards, Mase and Atwater had discussed the situation if Kelly were to get the second-team nod for the upcoming joint practices with the Bears this week, and Edwards even compared the fan love for Kelly to that of Kyle Sloter last season. “But there’s a developmental process that needs to happen,” Edwards pointed out, wondering if Kelly is ready. “If you were to throw him out against the ones, we’d be saying a few different things.”True. And Boyer believes that is exactly what what the Broncos will try to answer this week - will Kelly, or even Paxton Lynch, be a viable backup this season - or do the Broncos need to look for a veteran as backup going into the season?“Kelly proved he can handle the third-stringers. Now can he take the next step, and what is that next step?” Boyer said, adding that it will be “very interesting” and “very, very exciting” for fans if Kelly is taking those second-team reps at the end of the week.But Boyer doesn’t believe the Broncos should give up on Lynch yet either and Mase noted that the third year is a “fork in the road” for quarterbacks - either you stay or you get ready to go.“A backup QB is like a fire extinguisher,” Mason said. “You don’t want to need them but you want them to be reliable when you do.” And although Kelly has officially moved up to No. 2 and Lynch down to No. 3, Boyer still wants to see Lynch have time on the field.“I think Paxton has faced a lot of adversity. You’ve got to keep putting him out there. You can’t write him off,” Boyer said. “He’s got to have an opportunity to get better. These next two games are very important.”

Not even a few hours ago Cheap Shaquill Griffin Jersey
, I’d written that second-year wide receiver Amara Darboh was among the list of Seattle Seahawks on the roster bubble worth watching closely. Darboh hadn’t played at all this preseason due to injury, and other receivers on the depth chart had performed well enough both in games and in training camp to put Darboh’s spot on the team in serious jeopardy.On Wednesday, it looked like Darboh was going to return from his hip flexor problem.With kickoff nearing for the Seahawks’ 2018 preseason finale against the Oakland Raiders, it turns out that Darboh isn’t playing at all. He’s in street clothes, just like Byron Maxwell, whose own future with Seattle is hardly certain.I don’t want to say outright that this seals Darboh’s fate, but it certainly doesn’t help one bit. David Moore and Keenan Reynolds have shown promise Bobby Wagner Jersey
, Brandon Marshall looks like he still has something left in the tank, and that surely leaves Darboh on the outside looking in.

Let’s take a look at Jets snap totals against the Miami Dolphins.On the offensive side of the ball Youth Sam Darnold Jersey
, Neal Sterling’s early departure from injury meant more playing time for Chris Herndon and Eric Tomlinson. Herndon got 44 of New York’s 65 snaps, while Tomlinson participated in 37 snaps.It also looks like Terrelle Pryor has the third receiver spot over Jermaine Kearse. Kearse only saw 20 snaps in his 2018 season debut.The full snap totals for the Jets on offensive are posted below.On the defensive side of the ball, we do not see many surprises. The top safeties, linebackers, and cornerbacks spent most of the game on the field. Frankie Luvu and Brandon Copeland continue to see playing time at the edge spot for a defensive front that has been surprisingly effective getting to the quarterback so far.Below are the full defensive snap totals for the Jets.The 2018 Jets Roster: What Comes Next? The New York Jets initial 2018 roster cuts to get down to a 53 man roster are done. What comes next for the 2018 Jets roster?The Jets and every other NFL team have been busy putting in waiver claims on some of the 1000+ players waived this weekend. The time for putting in such claims expires at 12:00 noon EDT today, September 2. Shortly thereafter word will begin to trickle out regarding which players the Jets and all other NFL teams successfully claimed on waivers. The Jets are sixth in waiver priority Youth Spencer Long Jersey
, meaning if any of the five teams ahead of the Jets (Cleveland Browns, New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans, Denver Broncos) puts in a claim on any player the Jets also claim, the Jets will not be awarded that player.Any player successfully claimed by the Jets will be placed on the 53 man roster Authentic Morris Claiborne Jersey
, and a corresponding roster move will need to be made to create space for the claimed player. This may or may not entail cutting a player. Roster space can also be created with trades or via the various reserved lists, such as injured reserve.At 1:00 pm Sunday teams can begin to assemble their practice squads. Players may only be signed to a practice squad after they have cleared waivers, meaning no other team has claimed them. The vast majority of players cut this weekend will go unclaimed, and those with no more than two years of eligible service on an NFL 53 man roster will then be eligible to be signed to a practice squad. In general practice squads consist largely of players cut by the same team the day before. Teams have the most familiarity with players they’ve had in camp all summer. However a team with a good scouting operation should be able to identify some better players from other teams’ cuts, and can poach such players for their own practice squads.Practice squad players make a minimum of $7600 per week, or approximately $130 Womens Jordan Jenkins Jersey
,000 for a full 17 week season, payable on a weekly basis during the season. All practice squad salaries count against the salary cap. With ten practice squad spots available the entire practice squad costs about $1.3 million in 2018 cap space. In theory there is no upper limit to the compensation paid to members of the practice squad. Occasionally a team will pay a particularly promising developmental player significantly more than the minimum to keep them away from other NFL teams. However the vast majority of practice squad players make the minimum.Finalizing waiver claims and filling the practice squad will keep the Jets busy the next day or two. Then roster changes will slow down considerably, as the focus turns towards getting ready for the first game of the regular season against the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the Tennessee Titans today and it shouldn’t be close — which means it inevitably will be.In the past three years Youth T.J. Yeldon Jersey
, the Titans have won four of six, including a home-and-away sweep last year. Marcus Mariota is still designated as “questionable” on the injury report and Blaine Gabbert will likely get the start and the Titans roster is half of what the Jaguars’ is, but... well, old wounds die hard and until the Jaguars can handle their business against the Titans they can’t.For those not attending, feel free to follow along and leave your comments below.How to watchNeed to find out how to watch, stream, or listen to today’s game?

It shouldn’t matter and the Jaguars should still win which means it will definitely matter. Sigh.5 questions with Canal Street Chronicles: What can we expect in Week 1? Ladies and gentlemen, there is actual Jacksonville Jaguars football today! The Jags host the New Orleans Saints at 7:00 p.m. at EverBank TIAA Bank Field. Doug Marrone gets a chance to coach against his former boss, Sean Payton — Marrone served under Payton as offensive coordinator for the Saints from 2006 through 2008. Granted, it’s the first week of preseason and we’re not going to see a lot of reps from the starters, but it will give us a chance to see what the young guys and those who are trying to make the roster can bring to the table. To help us prepare for all of this excitement, we spoke with Christopher Dunnells of Canal Street Chronicles — SB Nation’s New Orleans Saints community. I asked Christopher a few questions. Let’s get to know the 2018 version of the Saints a little bit better, and find out what we should be watching out for tonight.1. Typically, we’ll only see starters play two or three series in the first preseason game, Will we see Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara Youth Ronnie Harrison Jersey
, Michael Thomas and Mark Ingram (I believe he is eligible to play in the preseason) at all, or do you anticipate Sean Payton giving any of his stars the night off? Yes, Ingram is eligible to play in the preseason. I would anticipate Brees playing only a series or two. Same with Kamara. Michael Thomas might play a little longer. But if I had to guess, Ingram will get significant snaps over the course of the preseason. With Ingram slated to miss the first four games of the season, the preseason will be Ingram’s best opportunities for facing real-game competition and reps.2. Looking past the big names, what rookies or under-the-radar guys are you most excited to see? Who is a player that Jaguar fans should be paying attention to, even if they may not be familiar with the name? I’ll give you two: quarterback Taysom Hill and wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith. Smith was drafted in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and looks to be another mid-round gem for the New Orleans offense. He has been making plenty of noise in training camp, and now after the release of Brandon Coleman, the No. 4 WR spot is wide open for the taking.Taysom Hill is a career back-up QB that was utilized on special teams in 2017. With his sub 4.4 speed, we’ve already seen what he can do with his legs, and he’s not afraid to bring the wood and lay out a big hit. But we still haven’t seen what — if anything — he can do with his arm as a potential back-up for Drew Brees. All eyes will be on Taysom and his ability to make tough throws. He’s also been reportedly used on special teams to hold for field goals and extra points, so it’ll be interesting to see if the Saints break out any trick plays in the preseason.3. Again, starters, will get limited reps, but with the Jaguars vaunted defense and smash-mouth offense, are there any players you are excited to watch or are concerned about? I’m one of a few Saints fans who doesn’t really watch LSU games, but I’ll answer for Saints Nation and say that I imagine they will welcome the chance to see Leonard Fournette live. I, on the other hand, am just focused on both of our teams getting out of the first preseason game without injuries. (Editor’s note: Amen to that). 4. Cameron Meredith is coming off of a torn ACL and avoided the physically-unable-to-perform list to start training camp. He is also learning a new offense with the Saints. Will we see Meredith play Thursday Youth Jalen Ramsey Jersey
, and could he be another wide receiver that Drew Brees is able to make into a star? Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Meredith skip the first preseason game as the Saints will be extra-cautious bringing him back from injury.But to answer your primary question, yes, I think Meredith absolutely could be a huge piece in the 2018 New Orleans offense. Tre’Quan Smith is entering his first NFL season. Ted Ginn Jr is entering his 12th. Willie Snead is gone. Brandon Coleman is gone. Coby Fleener is gone. There are a lot of targets to be had in the Saints offense, and I think Meredith has the best chances of becoming Drew’s No. 2 receiving option this season.5. The Saints defense was much improved in 2017. Are there any new additions on that side of the ball you’ll be watching for, or players from last season you are expecting to progress? Do you expect the Saints to continue to improve defensively this season? The Saints defense made huge strides last year, thanks almost entirely to play from the secondary, including Defensive Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore and fellow rookie star Marcus Williams. The linebacking corps and pass rush (aside from Cam Jordan) were still a liability last year. At linebacker, the Saints signed Demario Davis, formerly of the New York Jets, and have former (Florida) Gator Alex Anzalone returning from season-ending injury last year. On the defensive line, the Saints re-signed Alex Okafor, who was also lost to season-ending injury last year after tearing his Achilles, and paid a king’s ransom to move up and draft Marcus Davenport in the first round.If the Saints hope the defense can make similar progress in 2018, it will be up to those key pieces contributing this year.There you have it — our first opponent Q&A of the 2018 (pre)season. Thank you to Christopher for taking the time to answer my (ridiculously thorough and intelligent — just kidding) questions. Follow him on Twitter, and if you’re looking to learn more about the Saints, be sure to follow Canal Street Chronicles as well.
