"Access ports. 1300 AP Appreciate your patronage. You know what we're talking about today. Spent two hours on what has already occurred, and then at five will shift gears and You round two of the draft. How does that sound 5 to 29872? That is the text line and the phone line If you would like to get all interactive and judging by You guys coming back at me last night on Twitter. I know. You want to talk? So let's talk 5 to 29872. We will take a slight right turn. Or left turn as it were. Talk ponies. Kentucky Derby is tomorrow. Jonathan Horowitz or Horse racing Insider will be My guest just wants you to Win some once you win a few bucks this weekend. I want to give you the information you need, but the rest of the time it's the draft. So let's talk about the draft. The only thing That George Payton has proven In his time is general manager Is that he is willing to pay guys like Justine Simons von Miller. And shall we Harris more money. And John Elway would have The difference is between George Payton and John Elway. And there And last night. Was all the evidence I needed. To prove what I believed. Was the case when George Payton was hired. That this is not a changing of the guard. This is not a sign off brighter days ahead. John Elway is still very much in charge. He just has someone to carry out his day to day activities and George Payton. And once in a while who throw him a bone and say, You know what If you want to pick up the full freight on von Miller, you go ahead and do that. The on Lee thing that George Payton could have and can do. From now until the end of time. To prove that he is just not just an extension of the John Elway regime. Is to fix the quarterbacking situation. And that opportunity fell right into his lap last night. He played the draft board like a fiddle. They didn't have to move a muscle. And they ended up with the choice of Justin Fields, Michael Parsons and Patrick Ser Tan. And they win with Option three, which was the third best option. And the third best choice they could have made. And this has please understand me if you take in anything from me today. Understand. I have no problem with Patrick's or Tan. I think he's going to be a fantastic player in the NFL. You must balance what you need. And what the best player on the board is. You have to balance those two. You can't strictly go best player available. We could have a debate whether certain is even the best player out. Of those three. I am high on all three of those guys future in the NFL. Once you bring into account that there is one big fat smoking hole on this roster and has been for the better part of a decade. And you have an opportunity to address that. And walk everything else into place. No pun intended. Quarterback is all the Denver Broncos need. It's all they need. And we will be talking about a playoff contending. Nobody. And had every turn there either fail or unwilling like they were last night. To address the team's biggest concern. And what's worse. George Payton said a couple of weeks ago. That John He is leaning on John Elway. He has given John Elway some position groups to look at. Then you're helping me with these John, which I don't have a major problem with unless you give him quarterback. I said at the time. Let's just hope it's not quarterback that he gave him and I'll be gosh darned if Edward er Tweeted out yesterday that George Payton asked Elway to specifically scout quarterbacks. And when asked about it last night. George Payton. Said he I did it. Without even a hint of irony. Yeah. John had a big role in all the positions and had a big voice and he was involved in the process. He sat in all our meetings. Um, it was a sounding board for me for Vic. You know, on these players, you know that. All the players we discuss through our meetings, so he was great. That was the answer to a specific question about whether John Elway scouted quarterback The one thing John Elway proved unequivocally he could not scout he could not identify he could not. Evaluate. George Pain said. Please send say Tell me what you think. This quarterback class. Everything George Payton did this offseason John Elway could have done As much as I like everything that the Broncos have done in the off season up into this point. John Elway could have done it. He thought John Elway had a pretty darn good off season last year, didn't we? Made some moves that we really liked. Don't tell me now, after the fact you were down on AJ boy. Hey, you weren't down on a J boy. You're down on Bryce Callahan. You're down on Kareem Jackson. John Elway has had these off seasons before. So what? George Payton did this offseason. Why? I like it. John Elway could done the same thing. You know what else John Elway could have done? Screw up the ninth pick. Could have done that himself..

"But please, please. I could not I could not live with myself. If somebody actually spent money. Insurance in ads. You make me the G. M, um I'll say of those three jobs. I would most like this one. Would rank it. Rockies general manager one then Broncos general manager then um Then professional guy who gets kicked in the groin. And then governor of Colorado. That's the order that of which I would rank my career aspirations. I would rather have a job as someone who repeatedly gets kicked in the groin. And to be the governor of this state. As much as I love this state as much as I have some ideas. But honestly. If there is a job out there, where Somebody. Eyes repeatedly kicked in the groin. I I feel like it's it's In government. I feel like if you're the governor of a state, you metaphorically repeatedly get kicked in the group. Let's see Albert. I liked it better when the criticism of Bronco ownership was Pat Bowlen, wearing a fur coat on the sidelines or threats of moving the team to Canada and never really affected the play on the field. You have George Payton. If you're Rocky's fan, or if you're a Broncos fan, your hope is George Payton. The Rockies don't even have their George Payton yet. At least it's a fresh set of eyes. How much autonomy George Payton has I don't know. Don't I really don't know, because honestly is good is the off season has been for the Denver Broncos, and I believe it's been a good offseason like John Elway could have done this offseason. Shut up. Vic Fangio is the reason why Kyle Fuller's here. Um, momento em was already building towards Justine Simons signing long term. Um I mean, they've all been good. I like every move that the Broncos have made letting Philip Lindsay walk. All of that stuff. I'm fine with all of it. One thing John Elway can do. George Payton still has yet to do. Is that Shortcoming of George Payton. Or is that because somebody who recently promoted himself is getting a little bit more involved in that decision, then he needs to be I don't know. But at least the Broncos have somebody That can come in from a good organization, not great organization in Minnesota, but a good solid organization. Come in and look at this situation and say all right, this is what's working. This is what's not, and clearly, George Payton has shown and said that drew locks. Not that You can tell me that he believes that drew all that on. Lee wants He has made it abundantly clear to me that if the right opportunity came along, they would dump Drew lock in a heartbeat. So why haven't they Feels like big picture stuff that John Elway promised he would still be involved in But the Rockies don't even have George Payton. Don't have their guy, so we'll ride this wave. Right? Well, why ride the wave of Jeff Bright inches out Holly Lucia and we'll get excited and we'll watch a ball game tonight, and it might be You might watch Iraqis game that maybe that that's probably a good question. As today's news make you turn on the Rockies game tonight. With that weight lifted. Because I've told you this The players themselves. Not many of them. But some of the players themselves. Have actually been quite enjoyable to watch. Brian McMahon, Dom Nunez. Starting pitching. CJ crone over last week or two. Again. It's not many There's still not good Trevor story at a Grand Slam yesterday. That was fun. Um With the weight of Jeff Bright, it's lifted. I'm curious Those of you who swore off the Rockies or at least have detached yourself to an extent. You watch tonight. You watch tomorrow. You get a little bit more engaged. Is in the interim, That's all we got. Right that they're going to name. An interim general manager is probably not going to be someone from the outside. I don't know what's gonna happen with John Gray and Trevor story. I'm going ponder that tonight and get back to you tomorrow, but We're not gonna have a resolution. To the Rockies. Next general manager tell probably October November So Gives us some time to ride the wave. Of positivity that Jeff Bright it has gone. Rockies play at 7 45. By the way case, you know, and it is a busy night. Is a really, really busy busy night. I love this time that this is the best time of year. Because we're still in the off season of football, which I continued. Toe say is better than the regular season. I'll take off season over regular season and that's even me talking as a fan of a team that Is doing very well for themselves. The off season is always better than the actual season and maybe that's true throughout sport. But if you if I pick my favorite time of year Baseball, hockey, basketball or all going on at the same time. And then we're in off season for the NFL. Is the best time of year. You got the abs. You got the Nuggets. You got the Rockies all in action tonight. Give you some pertinent information to make bets if you so choose. Maybe get to a couple attacks were hard out at the bottom of the hour here on exports, 1300. Nissan believes you deserve a car that thrills you. So.

"But when you make decisions if you're George Payton coming into this draft Making her now Don't worry about the future of the factor that and you if you think JC heart if you have Jason Horn higher on your draft board, Unlike a better than you put it, then you then you go with them. That's fine. But you make decisions based on your great decisions based on a year for you. Don't you just don't do it to make decisions for now, So the rest will take care of itself Might say, I'd rather have Greg Newsome. He might And ask you a question. So say you will say Jaycee horn to say they still picking at night. Which corner you taking off the field to put Jay Z Horn on. Oh, I don't think our corners they're going to make it through the entire season. That cop it out with the injuries use. I see. So you don't have any faith and rice. Callous way have place Callahan. I'm just gonna ask him. Just let me just read, write and words. Let me recap Price. Callahan's career. Question for you as he ever played an entire 16 games like No, That is a no question for you, Um prior to us landing on the moon. Had we ever landed on the boat of his work, So this is not gonna help you or your argument next Wednesday. It's just the facts prior to doing something that hadn't been done right. It was Fred Taylor. This is the year to stay healthy before he was able to stay healthy. You can't win games. But you know how I feel about this when you have Bryce Callahan. You have you have? Which one? Do you want to go to a movie or basket? Which one of you guys you're punting on. You have Kyle Fuller on one year contracts. One of your two boys from last year. Do you hate the movie or Vasi? Either alos. Which one you're punting on. No, no, no. What? You can do it. I did not interview Vic Fangio out of the combine and get that very safely. Quote from him, saying that you need to continue to stockpile of quarterback. I am not taking cornerback. Off of my board at the top of the draft. I'm not I'm still zeroed in. I didn't say anything quarterback There is my top of my board is there I'm zeroed in on taking a corner. I just asked you a practical question. Yeah, You didn't take it off the field to put that guy on there. You look at the defense as it's constructive. Taking off way don't do rotations anymore. I'm saying that if you draft somebody at nine, you're drafting them to make an immediate impact. Yeah, I agree. But if you're drafting in to make an immediate impact, they're going to have to be on the field to make that impact. I think so. You're taking off the field to do it at this point, I'm going Tol Have them all competes for my God. Get it with a 10 Million bucks a year, Ronald Darby. But you know what? This guy we drafted in nine. Throw him out there. Oh, man, All right..

"C. Horn got a perfect 10 Raz score at a 10. Perfect. I get razzed all the time. I'll stop it. You don't You know what I mean by that relative athletic score. It can't fly. It does a great job with those Fantastic. By basically that the rise score is means 0 10 scale, Okay? And they go through just all the metrics that they have available. So whether you know height, weight bench vertical broad. 40 yard Dash. Um, shuttle three cone. We're not available. He didn't do those is that is that that bother you at JC Horn didn't do the shuttle of three con. I saw a few people out there saying that that that was important for them to assess whether or not Jason Horse should be in that kind of category. I think he put up a 439 40. Which is exactly what he needs. You know, he's got long speed. Yep. Exactly. His Let's see here is vertical jump was a 41.5. So you know you could jump is broad was 1 33. And then more and one more bench wrapped in Patrick Surtain and Bear with me here. You could just throw on the tape and see the guy can play very easily. You could just You could do that, or I'm with. You know what? We're throwing all this out? This'll guy, you know, he he stumbled a little out of the gate on Ah, meeting this track event. I'm with you on that 100%. And I'm not gonna say produce or over raise. Some people will say Pro days are overrated this year. They're not because you need the numbers that you don't have. That's right. Cross checks for all this kind of stuff. And nowadays with GPS sensors, we could get on field speed for this kind of stuff. You don't even hardly need forties anymore. When we have the combine. I am less about the pro days but without the combine with the absence of the combine I am or about the pro days. So here as we sit talking about J C. Horn, some of the numbers that he put up today and the Broncos They were in attendance. George Payton went to South Carolina to check him out. And I mean, I feel like if I'm going to do this, right, okay, because I wanna make sure I do this right? I want to have the same energy of all the people out there that said Trey Lance was for sure, but drafted by the Broncos because George Payton attended his pro day, so I'm doing this right. I'm saying it as Casey Horn confirmed to the Broncos Round one. You're so you're saying this infirmed? Hmm? Done. Okay? That's that's what you're saying. You're calling your shot that Jay Z Horn is coming to the Broncos, No matter what locked up when they trade back. What are they doing in firms? No, No, this is this is this is the same energy That everybody came at me with Trey Lancer. Okay, Well, I'm gonna tell you when they trade back and you change the horn goes to the Dallas Cowboys, 10 where he is actually going to go. I think it I think that after entertain will go to the O. J. C. It'll be packed first or take a look at me for a minute, okay? I don't I don't wanna have to do like who do you think you're talking to? But look, I'm not gonna fall for the shrimp of the cinnamon toast crunch. Mama. God, they're making a TV show about that or something Seriously, already? Yeah. Yes, he's not gonna watch that. Neither of us right. JC Horn going 10 would would maybe want to vomit? Especially the Broncos could've had him at nine. This is an interesting question because we had Eric Crocker on and he said Greg Newsome's actually a better fit for the vic Fangio defense, But but well, let me ask you this. Have a question for you. One for you after you get done, Okay. Question is even question earlier than your question. The real thing don't know. Bless you question. Okay, So don't question my question. Greg Newsome is a better fit..

"You know, I'm a man of very simple pleasures and one of the pleasures that I enjoy on a daily basis. Is the smell of newsprint in the morning. I'm old school like I got the online subscription and stuff because sometimes it's a little bit easier. But I still like Tol hold the newspaper in my hands as I go through it. And what should I see? This morning, but my next guest face right on the front page of the entire Gazette. Not just the sports section. The entire gives that like it was Jared, Polish, Camel A Harris and Whole Clea. That's what it was. Those were the pictures on the front page and his, uh Title of his latest work, bringing back Miller isn't smart. Pretty to the point. Paul Clea, Why do you question the intelligence of George Payton? Uh, e want to ask? Did you read the vice president? First the governor. The sports guy first. I read this sports guy first. You know that I did the one. You're the one right on. That's good. Got one fan out there. I appreciate that. You have a subscription to you know, I have a Denver Gazette subscription. Um, I've been given those two Ah, Friends actually got one for my high school basketball coach Dick Cadi. May have heard of him, right? You want about 800 games? You won more than anybody else has ever won here. Did you know that I did not know that. Yeah. Boutique, Ari. Good man. He's a neighbor now. I'm glad von Stack. He gives me more, You know, glorious things to write about from dancing with the stars, too. You know, bring in Hollywood a little bit of Hollywood T o Colorado. That's always fun to write about. I just thought 18 million was a little extreme for You know, a guy who Really hasn't. He hasn't been effective in in three years. You know yet 7.5 sacks a couple years ago. We don't know that he fits and Victor NGO skiing. We haven't seen it yet. You've hurt last year. It looked like he was in for a really big season. You know, we saw him a train, campy. You look fantastic. But I think for a team in transition, I thought they'd earmark that 18 million for Couple of guys. Couple three guys that would be here for longer than next season, because I don't see him here after next season to you. Or not, onlys, things change withdrew Awk. I mean, that's what everything hinges on me. I don't believe in Drew walk, so if he's going to be the starter next year, I said this yesterday, we're gonna have the same conversation next year. And I don't think that the result is going to be what Broncos fans air so happy about now. Mm hmm. Yeah. So that's exactly where I come down. Now. Here's the twist, though. What if I'm right about this tomorrow in the Gazette? What if they find a way that the Houston Texans Do truly unload the Shawn Watson. Is this part of a George Peyton's Greater playing here. Cause you gotta think a guy would like to be alongside of Superstar like Ron Miller, then not So maybe that's part of the deal here. You know, it's interesting. Somebody asked me, you know, did it set a precedent? For future Broncos to say. Well, Bond in Take a pay cut. I'm not taking a pay cut. You guys still brought him back? It's interesting, because you know, did take a pay cut. Peyton Manning took a pay cut. So I guess Bond, uh, he's got a little more capital built up down. It does valid and old number 18 did. Well, I'll I don't necessarily disagree with that. But what I would counter with And I have talked about this in the past. I mean, the Broncos themselves don't have that. You know that credibility built up right? It's it Justine Simons and von Miller. Now both are guys that like Denver that want to be here, But they're not willing to take less money because The Denver Broncos have wasted all of that capital running this team into the ground since the Super Bowl. No You know, I think it has a lot to do with the fact that you're if you're Peyton. And what was the 38 39 at that point He knew what they had, and that was that was a Super Bowl caliber roster, so he's willing to give it one more shot. And say I'll come back for less because I think we could do this. So involved case It speaks to where they are. You know, they're not a contender. And this corner this corner they signed. RV looks like a good player. He doesn't get him any closer. The chief You know, it's There's still light years behind the candidacy, chief So I think that's probably part of it, too. That guys, they're going to be willing to take a pay cut when they know they're coming back to a team that's going to play. You know 18 19, I guess 20 games now potentially All clear that gives that my guess. What do you think about the idea that this was some kind of a bone or a peace offering from George Payton to the fan base? All right, two for a fan base. That's not happy about the potential of filled Lindsay walking and is probably overall not thrilled with the idea that drew locks can be the starting quarterback. How much do you think? Sentiment. Appeasing the fan base came into play with the signing of Von Miller. I think it does in this respect. That if you cut him Kansas City walks in your chief's right? Mm. The charges walk.

"Including getting in front of new general manager George Payton. We don't know if it's the first time or if it's just the first time that has been made public. But Alfred, but we were going into the break. We were talking about von Miller. Whether he we should or shouldn't be giving the Broncos Ah, home team discount. My question to you is If when the league year starts and he's do what I believe it's a $7 million bonus. If they were to honor that last year of his deal, and then put an extension together. What does that mean? Honor? You mean paying his full salary? Maybe bill paying the full salary that he's over his current deal? Could you then work out an extension where maybe it's a little bit. Of closer to the JJ watt money. Yeah, I think that what you can do is long as he gets his attention. What money is a lot less? No, isn't it? He's got $23 million in guaranteed money. Over two years. Yeah, So what about the $23 Million in guaranteed money is Guaranteed. So it's 15. I think it's $15,015 million over the course of two years, But in NFL terms, you just want to secure the guaranteed portion So if the Broncos came the bomb Miller and said to von Miller, we're going. We want to do a three year deal with you. We're going to give you $30 million in guaranteed money. Okay, now, 30 million is better than 18. Okay, But after 18 you hit the market Who knows what you're going to get. Chances are the salary cap goes back up, and then you have new money to play with teams that are desperate to win a Super Bowl. But ah $30 million, say state of the Broncos say we're going to give you a three year $30 Million, a three year contract extension 30 million of a guarantee Whatever those take number R R whatever the fake numbers are on. Your number. Uh, your number Three. Who cares? Okay, You're not gonna get to that. You're not gonna play that you're out. You're gonna negotiate another deal. If he's playing the way, I think he's gonna play and then away you go. So when you get to your three On that third year deal. You're gonna rip that deal up and do another extension. If Bond does the things that I think he can do when he's healthy. This is what I want to tell you about. Evaluation of past rushes. In my my Breakdown of pass rushes in particular. If you just use the only number Was as as a sect. Okay. Sex are the only numbers that you use. Okay. Okay. You got to use two years. Okay, You have to use two years. Because maybe one year was off. And then another year was on. That would you go back? Three years. If you missed a year in that, that's right. Okay, because you have to know who he was. Tried to that subpar year of eight sacks. Now I'm telling you During that year, where he had eight sacks. Was on this radio station, telling everybody that Von Miller is not being used correctly, and he is getting double team and triple team more than I ever have seen him in. It is time here in Denver, and by the way was getting no rest, like no rest. So there was a game where he only took off a couple place, right. So so, and I think that when Vic Fangio was brought in here, 58 was You know if he ate was going to play more Because I'm the Wade. Remember under Wade. We had this crazy rotation of good players playing a lot. We had guys like check, Barrett. Who in his last year and never have 5.5 sacks. We markets where the markets where we have Shane, um Ray chain Ray, you know we had, you know, Bomb Miller. So we have four guys rotating right? You know what that did to kept everybody fresh, But I don't believe John Light, seeing his $20 million a year player on the sideline as much as he did. So he wanted to get him back into the game and play him or and that's exactly what Victor Angio did his first year here in Denver. The reason that I'm telling you, this is because the being effective pass rusher you. It's like saying that you are an effective sprinter. Sprinters Don't run. Half miles. They don't want a mile. They don't run a run A 10-K. They don't run a marathon. They run sprints. Therefore You need to get him in okay and not punish him and make him stay on the field and for Dr is extended. You need to take that guy out and treat him like he's a sprinter. Sprinters need to have a break. You don't see why receivers running go routes and then coming right back to the huddle. They take a playoff, right? Yep. Then they come back in and then they go back to go back to work. You know that? That's that's the normal route of players in this league. You can't bust it out. 80 yards down the field 70 yards down the field and then run back to the huddle. Let's say Do it again. Yeah. Can you do it a couple times? Yeah. Can you do it? Three or four times? No, not at the same. Not at the same energy or the same, uh, fear that you can put an explosion that you can put into your opponent. You need a playoff. Every time the Broncos have been successful on defense, there's been a rotation, right? But look at last year, there was no bomb. Miller. Okay, We finished eighth in the NFL and sacks as a unit. And guess what we did. We rotated every single guy on that team. I mean, we rotated every single guy on that defensive front. If you played outside linebacker, you got a chance to rush the passer. And you know what? As a team. We had We were eight in the NFL. Let me tell you why. That's amazing. The reason that that that's amazing is because you only get a chance to rush the passer when you're winning the game. When will we winning games last year, maybe winning games or still in the game because If you think about it the first half of the first half of the games the second half of the games Rockers will have the Broncos were playing from behind that. That's what I'm telling you. Fourth quarters are win. Guys get sacks there a quarter when themes get nervous, and they feel like they've got to catch up. That's why, when you see some of these great players that are starting to talk about like Carlos Dunlap has been released by the Seattle Seahawks. Okay, this guy is a great football player. He's a great football player..

By the Steelers. So apparently we're expecting to see a lot of big names go out onto the market next week. As teams try to save Some money with the salary cap. Probably going down by I know some estimations anywhere between 10 and 20 million So George Payton and Vic Fangio kind of gave a state of the franchise talk today. First, I want to just want to set the tone for George Peyton's comments by playing something from Vic Fangio. Now Big Fangio was asked. You know, this is the first time Anyone spoken to Vic Fangio sense? The end of the season press conference. So since that time, Vic Fangio I'm sure has been able to kind of really do a deep dive. Into the season. That was for the Denver Broncos. And he was asked today if that deep dive that postmortem if you will. Surprised them. If there were any surprises in there when it comes to the Broncos season, and that is clip number 12, please. Matt. We just need to be better. We need to Not turn the ball over as much. We need to get more takeaways, an offense. We need to cover better. We need to rush the passer better. We need to convert more third downs on offense. We need to be better in the red Zone on offense. I wouldn't surprised by what the cut up some off season study have shown this far. Turnovers, takeaways. Covering In the secondary. No turnovers, takeaways. Coverage. Rushing the passer, converting third downs. And in the red zone. Other than that. Broncos are just on the precipice of going to the Super Bowl. So a lot of things have to be addressed. And the Broncos clearly believe That some of those issues can be addressed by retaining certain players. George Payton was asked about almost everybody on the roster. Except for the long snapper and Brandon McManus. So let's run through those, shall we? Let's start. How about Justine Simons? Matt? Can we find out what George Payton Says about Justine Simons and whether he's going to be a Bronco. That's clip number one. Justin's one of our core guys, you know, in our goal, you know, since I got here is to sign him to a long term deal. And so we We've had good discussions with his agent. You know, I don't know if we're gonna deal done or not, but that's our goal and he's the type of guy we want to extend. All right, so Justine Simmons will be back. How about Paul Klee's favorite player? John James? What is his status for next year clipped to Yes, I've had a good discussion with Yuan and his agent Bill Johnson, and he's ready to go. You know, he said he missed football on D. He's looking forward to get here and working and being with his teammates, and I'm looking forward to meeting them and seeing him play next year. Now to be fair. George Payton did not say which team he's looking forward to watching you on James play for, but by context, I would say that that means the Denver Broncos Soju on James also coming back to the Denver Broncos, which is not surprising, and this is what I thought was interesting. When, um Hockley wrote the piece in the Gazette. I've been saying for weeks that John James is too expensive to cut. You're not saving any money by cutting John James. And there. I think there's an argument to be made that given the issues at right tackle That even with the question marks surrounding John James, he's an upgrade over anyone that they had played that position last year, but John James back Justin Simmons will be back. How about Phillip Lindsay Clip number four. Phillips, a good player. Very passionate, obviously had some injuries last year, but he's a good player. He brings energy. He brings juice. You know, he's a restricted free agent. We do plan on tendering him. I'm not sure what level but you know we want Philip here. All right. We want Philip here. Philip Lindsay's back with the Denver Broncos. How about Shelby Harris Cut six. Shelby's a priority and free age. We'd love to have Shelby back and he's a really good football player. He's a good person, and I know victims spoke with them. I've spoke with them early and he's a guy We definitely want back. All right. Shall be Harris back with the Broncos. How about, uh, von Miller Clip number three. No, We want to bring bond back and we're still working through that. I don't want to get into you know everything, but we want to bring him back and obviously the legal process what he's going through. It's a serious situation, obviously and And you know, I don't know all the details over respect what's going on? But we do want Bon Bon back. All right. Bon Miller Back with the Broncos. How about Karine Jackson Clip number five. I've spoken with Kareem. I've spoken with his agent, Jason, Shy it. You know, we're gonna work through some things, but we've had positive conversations. We would like Corinne back, You know, he's a good football player. He's a good leader. You know what? We'll see if we can do that. All right. Ah, So if you're keeping score at home, the Denver Broncos want back literally everyone that is said to become a free agent except for a J boy in General Casey Those two could get the hell out of here. But everybody else they want back in the Denver Broncos, Uniformed getting the band back together, running it back. Says George Payton..

"In fact, he he did a really great thing and after the interview was over there after the press conference is over, he said, thanks to the media for everything, and it really felt like a heartfelt goodbye from Justin. Two hours later, guys John always steps steps over. It stepped down his general manager and, of course, moved up into that role. Broncos get George Payton in here, and it seems like the tides have turned. With Justine Simmons. We know that he's going to be here in 2021. I really think that with George Payton here, the odds of him signing a long term deal with this team, whether it's before the franchise tag deadline after the franchise tag deadline have significantly increased. It really seemed like Justin Kind of knew his time was over in Denver under John Elway, or at least wasn't optimistic about it. And now with George Payton, George George Payton. Really wants to draft and developed. Keep their own players and boy if you're going to come in and let Justine Simons walk that goes against pretty much everything that we know about George Payton. So I don't expect that at all. Yeah, I don't either. And there's some interesting numbers from Jeff leg. Well, we're gonna get into on the other side. I mean, that range from 2011 to 2017. The Broncos on. Lee had six guys that they gave extensions to in that range, and only two of those Von Miller and parables were top, You know, within the range of top of the league. Average salary. So kind of fascinating The Broncos need to be better at drafting and developing and sticking with their guys Exact. Always great to talk to you. Thank you so much for the time, my man appreciate you. Fellas. Thanks Having me on really enjoyed talking with all right. Zach Stevens from D N v r the d NPR dot com z A C Stevens, D NPR on Twitter. Always good check in with those guys on Wednesday. It's It's pretty, uh, pretty damning. When you take a look at what the Broncos have done over the last several years. They just haven't been as George Payton framed it, and I want to get into this on the other side. As George Payton framed it. They haven't been what he thinks they should be, like, like when he said that out there very publicly and I got the exact quote here. He said that we're going to be drafting a developing players. That's gonna be our foundation when he said that it's like, well, the Broncos really haven't been that team is that they want to be that team. They just haven't ever looked at their guys. Relatively speaking That way. Elway had most of his success. They're free agency. Be honest with you, Um, that's just the way the team Woz. I mean, they just identified talent. The pro personnel department identified talent better on They brought in guys like that, whether it was Peyton Manning or Wes Welker or keep to leave, or DeMarcus Ware or Emmanuel Sanders or Darien Stewart or T J Ward and we go on and on and on. The guys that they brought in is they just they identified free agent talent pretty well and that They worked for them. The problem is, is that that talent eventually ages in the bill comes due and that what you've seen is the result of that over the last couple of years, 100% and so It's fascinating. How when you have an elite quarterback like Peyton Manning, you can cover up so many holes like well, what you mean they had They had some talent? No, no question, especially when they were set records in the office. They had some incredible talent. Even that 2013 season the defense was was in a bad way. They were a patchwork over there on the defensive side, but they're outscoring everybody. It didn't really matter. Remember, Von Miller got hurt in that season, and then they were basically kind of putting Paris linen out there starting in the Super Bowl. Right inside linebacker. It was. That's what happens like it took a while for the defense to come together.

"And I don't worry about the risk that drew lock will be alienated. Her butt hurt. Maybe both will happen, But then you got to come back and play it if they can't work out a deal to better themselves. That's That's the way the NFL goes. Then you got to come back. Assume you're gonna be the starting quarterback play better get the team around you to play better and move on. But I don't think you know it's been interesting to read some of the comments. Social media about the Broncos, in the estimation of some fans are screwing this thing up because they're making You know it known publicly about their interest in other quarterbacks. First and foremost, I am seen anything Come out of U. C Health center, so I don't think the Broncos necessarily or making anything public. George Payton has been. He was on this show when he first got hired, but And again. We talked about this. I talked to two people in the league. That have dealt with Peyton over a long period of time. Both of these guys I talked to are in management, and both of them said good things about George Payton grinder hard worker. But they said, Hey, he's not gonna you know, don't expect him to come on and be Overly gregarious or overly talkative. That's just not he'll answer. Your questions will be respectful, and that's fine with me. You got a football guy in there. So what if he didn't like to do too many media things? That's okay. But they haven't said anything publicly. So I mean, if I'm drew lock, all I can do is control what I can control. I come back in great shape, stronger, bigger, ready to assume that I'm gonna be the number one quarterback and that's the mindset he has to have. Everything else is out of his control. One thing about George Payton to when he was at Minnesota. Not only did he kick the tires, he bought the tires. Kirk Cousins, which was a big, big, big deal. Blockbuster with Kirk Cousins hasn't really worked out that great. The Vikings, but he was there in a part of that transaction, so It makes you think you know he's open to making those kind of deals. While he's here with the Denver Broncos. As the general manager in there, so many of these quarterbacks that look like they could be available. Uh, it kind of gets you a little excited. The only difference with the cousins deal and cousins statistically. Um, I had a good year this year. Vikings. Not really. But the only thing the difference between that deals some of these deals there were draft choices involved, right cousins was able to basically because he played out to franchise tags sit back and say Okay, Now I'm literally a free agent who's going to come up with the best deal and as it turned out, It was the Vikings. That was what was the three years and 84 Million? Yeah, and every single penny guaranteed, which which, at that point was almost unheard of in the NFL. And Kirk cousins. It's not like Kirk Cousins was considered. The premier quarterback in the NFL when they paid that kind of money, So it was a bit of a risk that they took. Kirk Cousins has put up good numbers. They just haven't been able to win with him right, like they wanted to. On a totally agree about Drew lock. You know, you just keep your head down. You work hard. Try to ignore all of this, which is really tough to do, especially for a young guy. Really tough to do When you're hearing your teammates. Talking about the Shawn Watson. When you're hearing these rumors, Russell Wilson could be available. Matthew Stafford, you know a couple weeks ago. It's pretty hard to ignore all of that. But you just keep your head down. You keep working hard and get better. And we'll see what happens. Will he be the starting quarterback in 2021? I think chances from me. I think chances are pretty good that that will be the case. But when you start seeing some of these things in the Broncos in the mix On these odds for these big names had I mean, it gives you not only interesting thing to talk about, but maybe get you a little excited, too. You know, I look a pro football focus a lot, but I do think your bowls at a much better year obviously signed a sign an extension and I say good for him and his family and I think good for the Broncos based on his play this year. But 19 19th best player in the NFL. Uh, you know what they might underpaid for him. If that's the case, you know, he signed the deal before the season was over. If he wouldn't maybe what a weight until the end of the season, maybe he would have got more money. You know the way it turned out for him and for Broncos made the pro football focus Top 100. I did notice that they ranked Kareem Jackson ahead of Justine Simmons, who's also looking to get paid. I found that interesting as well. I just don't know how how they can pay both. I mean, I don't either. I really don't but but with cream lobbying for two, Shaun watching like he's doing There's a chance Karim might not even be on this team next year. I find that interesting that you and I talked about that earlier. I think the Broncos if they have any hope of and I think would be a long shot An extraordinarily long shot to get this show on Watson. But you better keep Kareem Jackson. If you're thinking about cutting, Corinne, we're trying to restructure. You might want to keep that dude just until Shawn Watson decides what's he's gonna do Is this the last year in Karim's contract? I would have to go back and look at that. I do not. I do not know. But I think.

"About Fabio. He's gotta win this year. So he'll probably have some influence in there. He might be going. Hey, you know, we need to make a trade for Matthew Stafford, or to Shawn Watson, because if they if they have another year Like they just had he's gone. If if you're going to stay the course, which you have just suggested, might be the most likely course for George Payton to take and then try to rebuild developed, you know, draft and developing Get more good players and so forth. And so on, then you have to Come have come to the conclusion. That With the same coaching staff. And arguably the same system. And the same quarterback. And pretty much the same offense of players. That you're not going to be 30 seconds in turnovers that that was just a blip on the screen of youthfulness. Next year. You're going to cut that number in half that you're gonna be middle of the pack in turnovers or a little bit better. You have to have come to that conclusion. And I The only way you come to that conclusion is to say same coaches. Same system, same quarterback. But drew lock they're going to coach him a little bit better. Andrew's going to be more mature and his decision making is going to improve dramatically. Just because it's another year in the league. You have to think that he's got a shot to take that next step. Like Josh Alan did After his rookie year. And also Factor in the injuries. We're not gonna have another year like we just had with injuries. And let's see what he can do. And if it doesn't work, George Peyton's got nothing to lose. Josh Allen improved from year one to your three What They changed offensive coordinators. They got Stefan digs. They added some pieces and it's a different system. Yeah. Mind. I'm saying you're.

"Payton as he takes the reins of the Denver Broncos, whether he will or he won't have John Elway breathing down his neck. For the purposes of our discussion today is a relevant If you want to have that separate discussion, we can Whether it's George Payton or John Elway or the brain trust at Dove Valley. They have some decisions to make when it comes to They're pending free agents because as good of financial shape as the Broncos Aaron with the cap, and there are pretty good there in a pretty good spot. If they stick with drew lock. If they don't stick with your luck. If they decide to go the veteran quarterback route and I'm not talking Jamis Winston Marcus Mario to hear I'm talking big Carson Wentz, Matt Stafford, Matt Ryan, Dak Prescott, Jimmy Garoppolo. These guys that are gonna fetch a not only Well, you have to give up something of significance to get them, but you'll end up having to absorb quite a large salary. For all intents and purposes, what the Broncos have now in salary cap space. Without Justine Simons signed without Von Miller signed Phillip Lindsay. Or Shelby Harris. They have the amount of money it would take for them. To bring in a Matthew Stafford. Or a Carson Wentz or a Dak Prescott. So if you decide that that's the route of the Broncos decide that's the route they're going. Then it becomes a one in one out scenario. You want to bring back Shelby Harris. You gotta cut drill. Casey, you want bring back Ah, von Miller. DACA AJ boy you want? Bring back Justine Simons, You gotta cut Ah! Cream, Jackson. Like it doesn't have to be those exact guys. But Once you use up the rest of your salary cap space, bringing in Veteran quarterback. That is paid like a franchise Q B You're going to have to basically cut a player. For each one of these pending free agents that are going in going to probably fetch a decent amount on the open market. Some calculations have had Justine Simons about 15.5 million. And George Payton said yesterday. That one thing that he wants to make sure they the Broncos do under his reign. Is not lose their best young players. And said that specifically about Justin's in While John Elway couldn't get a deal done with Justine Simons, perhaps George Payton camp Justine Simons is at the top of the priority list for George Payton and John Elway. In my opinion, as he probably should be. That's probably the number one guy that is due to be a free agent that you want to bring back. If you bring in a franchise quarterback and you bring back Justine Simons, you got cut somebody. Oh, and by the way, you're probably gonna have to let von Miller, Phillip Lindsay and Shelby Harris Co I'm not trying to deter anybody. If you're somebody who thinks that drew off, ain't it And you want the Broncos to go out and get a veteran quarterback? You and Ira of of the same mind or let's say to Sean Watson. Because we may disagree on Matthew Stafford or cards wins, or we all agree on to Shawn wants in. Right, and he just signed his extension. I don't know if it kicks in this year. But for argument's sake, let's say that We can all agree with this. John wants and so if you're trying to bring into Sean wants in who's going to be paid? 25 to $30 million somewhere in that range. You know you can't afford all of these guys. I think that's the best way for the Broncos. Best route for the Broncos to go. Not just just John Watson, which is everybody's best route to go. But even to me and Matthew Stafford, if they don't You know? Achieved the pipe dream of landing to Shawn Watson. Then to me, Matthew Stafford should be the next guy on their list. So I'm okay with the repercussions when it comes to the salary cap. So I said what I would do Is I would Bring in Matthew Stafford or save the money for a veteran quarterback. I would bring back Simmons and von Miller. How is Tyler? You know Points out. If they move on from bond that's going to free up some space. It will it'll free up right now. It frees up 22 million, but I'm telling you that Freeing up bond right now. That's the original figure that came to 32 million. So if you're thinking Well, if we let Vongo Broncos get even more in cat, No, that's what it would be. You let von Miller go. You do not pick up his team option. You have $32 million and cap space to start. Free agency in the draft. So the guys that you will be releasing in order to free up more room would be cream. Jackson General Casey Age. A boy, Bryce Kallen. So if I'm looking at, I set aside the money for veteran quarterback Bring back Justine Simons. And I bring back von Miller. If his If its problems with Parker police become real problems and legal things. Then? I don't know. I think that makes the Broncos Let's presume innocence until proven guilty. On Miller's innocents of it..

Okay, You continue to vote over the next 24 hours, and we'll know what the Winner of the poll. Question is tomorrow. Do we know how the poll results ended yesterday, Kouf? We do not. But I could look that up s O. Coover normally would be on the other side of the glass eye being able to handle all these sorts of things, but now he's also over there, pushing the buttons at the same time. We got a boy be large, who's standing behind him? He's kind of been following along to see how exactly complicated it is dealing with us on the other side of this glass of which could be a challenge. What was the poll question yesterday? Yesterday's poll. Of course we had George Payton on yesterday. The new Broncos GM And it's surrounded him and his decision coming up If you were George Payton, would you trade three first round draft picks? Andrew Lock for two Shawn Watson and we had a ton of oats and yes, came out on top. It's 63.7%. No, was 36.3%. I'm going to say this right now. We have an intelligent audience that rolls with us that votes on those poles. Because let me tell you something. There's nothing like settling your franchise quarterback position once a quarterback knows how to play. You can depend on that guy for at least 10 years. I mean, 10 years of stability at that position, and you don't have to even worry about it anymore, so Um, I agree that if that was offered up, that would be a good exchange. And here's what's interesting about it. Because I've been keeping my ear to the ground. A little bit is damn quiet. But when it's quiet like this, it does tell me that there's probably some stuff that's going on in the background. And I don't mean with the Denver Broncos. I mean in general. It's gotten pretty quiet. But here's what I can tell you. I just talked to a buddy of mine who does a show down there in Houston. Uh, who told me today? That, um Shawn Watson has said even if Eric the enemy Is hired his head coach. He's still going to need some time to think about. The front office and what's going on there? So I mean, this thing is, I mean right now, from all accounts, the New York Jets Um, Miami Dolphins. Those two franchises are in the hunt. But here's one that I heard that I thought was really good. Well, did you see that The Broncos were like 13 Odds Hold hold on 30. And I'd like to be in this equation. But this is the one I heard that I thought was the best. Urban Meyer as the number one overall pick. The number one overall pick. Do you want this Shawn Watson or some unknown commodity? No. You would want You would want to show Watson do you? Do you want the unknown commodity? That's you know, in trouble lines. Um, who's widely accepted as the number one overall pick. And two number. Just call it too. Number ones from the Jacksonville Jaguars two number twos from the Jacksonville Jaguars. And they get the John Shawn Watson. You like that trade? Yeah. Ah, lot. That's a great trade. That is a really good trade. Well, that immediately makes it Um Because you don't again The unknown commodity is still you just don't know And you don't know if you've got the right personnel around how that quarterback's gonna perform at that level. So there's a bunch of questions that Are still going to be unanswered until you answer that one. You put a bonified starting QB one in that questions answered. You also know how he plays. So therefore, you know, if you've got the personnel or now you could build around what you need to do around a guy like that. So I would say, get that by the way, That's way too smart. It's never gonna happen, E. Do you know what I'm saying? That's way too smart to say we're gonna have There's a lot of maybe it's quiet around here now that, uh George Payton has been introduced. But I'm just letting you know, man. They're gonna be a ton of bids for the services of the Shawn Watch in the Bronco should be involved. I'm just letting you know the Broncos should be involved. And I don't think that number nine pick And you know, we would have to give up three number ones. The three first round draft picks in three second round draft picks. I mean, that's a lot, and that's by the way in for Brandy general manager that has been highly successful building the team through the draft. Those things carry a lot more value to a guy like that, then they made to others. If your legacy is leaving the team in good standing and in good order, Let's just say George Payton has his job for six years. Let's just say there's a ownership change. Okay, let's just say that That's a possibility and we haven't ownership change and we have the Shawn Watson and we have a new direction for the entire franchise. Uh, what's what's the issue what we're talking about here? I mean, what are we talking about here? I mean, we're talking about an unprecedented time in the NFL What we have to NFL franchises that don't have A new owner for say, Now we understand the Green Bay Packers is owned by the public city of Green, right? Well, just the fans, the fans. But two NFL teams are like What the Broncos are in. It's the Broncos and the Titans, where they don't have a single head of the Um, organization to say yes, I know. Because You know the Titans with the Adams family and the Broncos with the bowling family. They haven't come together and said, This is the person that's gonna lead so the NFL is saying it's time now. So I looked for a movement. I look for movement on both franchises in the next year. I agree. I think I think is, you know the NFL came out last year and said that You know, said as much way have to get this resolved. It's been going on way too long. So If you're the new owner, Would.

"Even if von Miller and Justine Simons Back and play well. If the quarterback play is subpar, or do you like this place like you played this year? It's not gonna be good enough. Even adding von Miller back to this mix and adding, Cortland said. I wouldn't think when you look at 10 win. Teams don't get into the playoffs like the Dolphins, right? So I think that the priority and maybe they're not looking at it because they don't have to in terms of timing, but What George Patton's plan is a quarterback, along with big fans. You and Pat Shurmur is going to matter. And I'm curious to see what George Payton impacts rumors relationship means and how much Pat As it relates to how much pats influence there How much influence that has on who the quarterback might be if they want to look outside the building for another viable starter, not just somebody to compete with Drew, but somebody that they would put ahead of her like, say, a max effort. I'm just throwing that name out there. So that's why you're still the number one priority in terms of Overall football success. If you want to rank like what's sitting on George Peyton's desk when he gets to get to work tomorrow, you're right. Well, especially with this news this afternoon, it probably is figuring out what is von Miller's future in Denver. And you got to think that by the way, if George Payton is gonna be starting tomorrow, you got to think that he's already got his short list of guys that he wants to talk to to be that right hand right hand man, And maybe he's even, you know, had those conversations before he took this job. Yeah, I think so. Especially because look, you just always assumed that it's going to be someone that you bring with you. Well, there's a chance that you've met someone along the way or you have interactions because you keep calling them to make a trade or ask them about somebody who's hitting the street or steal someone from their practice squad. Or, you know, an agent told you Hey, this guy's really up in coming. He could be. He could be your George Payton tow you to us, Rick Spielman and be with you for 115 or 20 years.

We saw what happened how perfectly it worked for the Miami Dolphins. Right worked really well. Brian floor is pulled to, uh, in a couple of games and Ryan Fitzpatrick came in and worked. And I believe I said AP through the No look pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick against the Raiders. I said, How about drew lock for three quarters and bring him Ryan Fitzpatrick in the fourth? And now I kind of feel like that's not the way they'll structure it, But I kind of feel like the two of them are gonna be on the roster together. Just feels like If they're gonna bring in a quarterback, That's who they would bring in. I feel that way. What the bigger story is How this all effects to a Do you pull him a couple of times? You have success when you pull him. And then there's the rumors that dish on Watson Wants to come to Miami. A lot of questions around, too. And also around Brian Florist in the Dolphins. Did they ruin to a Well, it's too early to tell if They have ruined him. But Brian floor is still feels good about too apparently. Told ESPN he thought he made a lot of improvement over the course is season and he's excited about the future with them. And Chris career, the general manager of the Dolphins last week. Said. Who is their starting quarterback? I feel like it's a Noda. Type of thing. Get it the rookie year. You do something you didn't bring him in immediately. You waited a little bit. You brought him in for a cameo, then. He didn't play and then you brought him in full time And now you're playing like the rookie years the time where you could do some of that stuff, But now it's time to commit. You're going to get a full off season. Yes, Cove. It is still going to be around. It's not gonna be in normal offseason. I don't think although, by the time we get to the summer could things get better? Who knows? But even if We're still dealing with the same stuff we're dealing with. Now You've had a You've had one training camp in a pandemic. You can have a second one, and you can make adjustments. There's going to be no excuse here about learning curves and whatever whatever. Who was being played in the league. It's time to commit to him fully. You do that kind of stuff. Pull them in the game. Try to teach him something. Mess around his rookie year year too. I think you got to be all in Onto us. It sounds like they are We'll see. 5 to 29872. When we come back, we'll have the three stories that are driving the show and also wide open third our four year to interact if you so choose. That's all coming up after.

"Center today as George Payton. I could not have that conversation about how we pronounce his name. George Payton has been hired as the new GM for the Denver Broncos, and he got a six year deal, according to all reports. Why is six years important? Because it says, we're not going to be hasty in making a move. If things aren't going smoothly, right out of the gate, or, you know there's a hick up in the middle that they want to give him time to have not only grow into the job, but Allow the team in a staff to grow around him, and hopefully for all six of those years. He's working with Vic Fangio because that means they're winning a lot of women a lot of games and competing in the playoffs and hopefully for championships, But we saw the six year deal. I can't swear that was the first time we ever saw it. But in recent years, both Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch signed six year deals, and that was because the Niners were sick of the turnover they had with their coaching staff, and even the Transvaal could have been the GM. Yeah. John, We're bringing you in here, Jed York said. Well, you're gonna let you grow in these roles together. And then after they went to the Super Bowl last year h I believe signed six year extensions. Kyle signing it first. And then John signing as well. So six years is saying, Hey, it's not the stand. I feel like standard contracts for Saving Fangio or Vance Joseph in lots of lots of folks. There are four years and usually by about that third year we have an idea if you're gonna be extended or not. And so it's saying that this is your team to run George Payton. We Feel confident the higher and we want to let you Have time to really grow in this job. You know, I know what the numbers are for the NFL. What are the numbers that surround the GM? Are they much different than the head coaching numbers? Because the head coach number is usually come in somewhere around. In today's NFL six million to $8 Million. What are the numbers for that job for the Denver Broncos? That's a good question, Alan. I think you could look John Elway's deal, and I think John is making around six. There's a good chance that George Payton isn't making that. In fact, it's probably I would guess it's maybe maybe half that, but it's certainly going to be a step up from whatever he's making with the Vikings. You have to think even though he was the number two guy, there's a he had two titles, assistant GM and vice president of player personnel But it doesn't pay what I think Coaches get paid. Um at the same time, there's typically more stability. You know, I talked to Tom. Hello, Sarah from NFL Network is based in Minnesota. It was funny. I was talking to him this morning was gonna put it on the Broncos daily podcast which ultimately did But it was within the hour of George Payton getting the job So we're talking In general terms, and it was a similar conversation to one that I've had with you guys about how rare it is. I think it was the one that brought it up to you guys as well last week how rare it is that you would have this many GM openings usually on this money, Jim Openings over multiple years, let alone in a single in a single year. So there were options out there, which meant to the Broncos. They couldn't lowball this offer to Peyton. Um, but he's had a dozen opportunities in recent years to go other places whether he was one of the top candidates or even offered the job or pulled his name out before he got the job offer to him, And he he finally chose this one, which maybe said something about What he thinks the Broncos have here, and he called him a sleeping giant in the statement that was released. Okay, So let me ask you this because now that we've got the head coach and in big Alan, I talked about this at the beginning of the show. Now the business comes of you got some players. You gotta figure out what you're going to do with. But don't you need your player personnel guy before that is that the next higher I think that's absolutely the first hire that he'll make it helps with the coaching staff is intact and barring anything crazy happening, staying in tax. You don't don't worry about that at all. And the Broncos clearly like their director of college scouting in Brian Start, That's why they just met with him. You look at the Broncos draft class the last couple years and he certainly is going to get whatever credit you want to give him, but it's been It's been really you could say, even going back to 2017 now because Garrett Bolles within that draft class on, so you hit on that first round pick, but certainly the 19 and 20 draft classes. You feel really good about in 18. You got Radley chub, among others s O u feel good. I got to think that he keeps his Giger gets promoted. But his right hand man is gonna be the next job they hire and You heard that? Maybe Jamal Stevenson, who's a guy that's in charge of college scouting in Minnesota, could come with him. He could also get promoted of George Peyton's job, so you may not just be as available for the Vikings. The Let him come join George here in Denver champ Kelly's name that we've heard. But champ is still in the mix for other GM jobs, and so until he's ruled out of those, I don't know if you would take this job until its final that he's not getting, say the Carolina job, which I know he's Been in conversations about 15 people talkto the Panthers, but until he's ruled out, I don't know if you would take this job unless he can read the writing on the wall and realizes this is a step up. He's essentially the number three guy in Chicago and we know there's instability there, even if GM Ryan Pace, and now you're going back for another year. We don't know how long we'll be there, but, yeah, you're absolutely right. Joe. That's got to be the first job is still the senior Bulls 10 days from now. So you want you're gonna want some of your own guys. They're beyond just people that have been here. Although I bet you they do keep more people than you'd be, Uh Then you may be expecting a new GM comes in. All right, that's OK away. Broncos is sadder Brandy crystal being brought to buy Coloradans for responsible energy development. More for BK on the other side. It's big Gala. Jo Jo, This is K away news. Radio traffic..

"I just think when the when the lion situation came up and Darrell Bevell came opened, I think they're probably gonna wind up going back to that. Honestly, I think you could see a situation there where they go back to that are you know there's other ways to go. I just I Pete Carroll, it's It's so weird because they want to run the ball. Like their philosophy is to run the ball. So you firing. The guy wants to run the ball it that I don't you know the whole thing just kind of messing with me a little bit. They say there's philosophical differences. I think Brian Schottenheimer wanna let Russell the ball a little more and be character them didn't Yeah, It's one of those things where you look at their group of running backs. He's okay. They've got some players, but they've got a top three quarterback for my money. If I'm drafting quarterbacks, I'm not getting probably past three with with Russ, at least at this point, and so and now that he has became Metcalf and some other nice pieces. It makes locket and Maura lot better because that guy was so darn good. That you would expect that what you saw earlier was gonna be there approached the whole way, but it almost seems like they regressed. Let's keep it close. And then hopefully Ruskin can cook later, as you said there, Ben, but I just don't want to see Russell's talent muted and it feels like that's kind of what Pete wants to do. Even if he's saying he doesn't want to. With Brian Brian Schottenheimer anymore. Yeah, it's gonna be interesting to see what they ultimately do there, and I mean again, you're right there. A lot of people are saying let rescue let Russ cook. But there were times when he would make mistakes. And, and he certainly is a much better quarterback with a talented running game, including Chris Carson when he's being utilized effectively. Let's go to the Broncos here because a lot of people are kind of waiting with bated breath. What's gonna happen with the GM today? We found out that they had an early zoom call with Terry. Fuck. No. And then George Payton came to town and he was here for a little while. When? What are you hearing right now, with the latest in the GM search? Well, I think there's a couple things. Font. No, is a guy that really impressed them that they didn't is that they don't know what to expect. They just didn't go into with any real expectation. I think what? I heard talking people that I trust. Is it, champ. Came in and maybe impress them more than that. They were hoping for a more than maybe they expected because you see somebody a certain way, you know, it's kind of an old saying may be in a lot of a lot of businesses. But right now you and I can speak to this in our business. That the best way to get a job or to impress your bosses to go get a job across the street and film. You can do the job and so with champ leaving. I think that Jon and Joe probably now see the growth that he's had, and Vic only knew him in his role in Chicago. So With champ while he feels like a distant third, at least certainly firmly in third place. You had thought no impressing them. But Peyton was always a guy that they knew coming in, had the best credentials. He's a guy that I've been offered GM jobs, other places, and so if they messed with him philosophically, he was going to be the leader in the clubhouse, and I think he firmly remains that the thing is there's six openings right now. Or maybe it's five. If I guess. The Texans was six. I believe there's five openings and these guys are in play for other jobs. So the Bronco's can't wait too long if they decide they like 11 of them, But you know, I saw Ben's tweeting and I had mentioned something similar last week or, I guess was that Friday that I think they wouldn't mind having Rob. I'm sorry, robs his nephew George Payton and Champ Kelly here as a combo, potentially or maybe even terrified, known champ Kelly as a zoo combo, But, uh, you know, it's a long minute answer to say, I do think this is gonna happen quickly because those names are in play elsewhere. If they like one of them, and let's just say, for the sake of conversation. It's George Payton. They don't want to wait a day or two for the Lions to get a second interview with him, Don't mean it won't happen anyway. You may be on his way to Detroit by tomorrow. Who knows? But I think that they if those were the three names have zeroed in on and it's one of those two. They got second interview. They're gonna want to pull the trigger sooner than later. Yeah. I think this decision is gonna come this week. I don't think that you're going to let everybody get away and then be stuck with well, who do we settle on? The Broncos don't wanna be that organization will be perceived as that organization. I also don't think George Payton. Getting out of the building today is an indicator that he's second to Teri fought in order Anything else? I think they just want diligence across the board. I saw a lot of speculation about that on Twitter that a lot of speculation on, uh, nonsensical speculation on what George Payton would do with the quarterback position. That was reported fact is trying to say that he didn't you know, I'm gonna bring in a free agent. You say goodbye to drew locked all this other stuff. First of all that had been decided second, well paid work on the pro player personnel side of the house. Of course. He was involved in free Agent acquisition quarterback for the Vikings. And third of all, the Vikings drafted plenty of rookies in that span. Ponder Tamara's Jackson. What's the other one of missing Teddy Bridgewater s o, You know, e think people need to calm down. I understand. Everybody wants to information wanted now, But how about we have a little patience? Let this thing play out. Well, I I think that's a great point, then and one. They're they're respecting the process to themselves. Right? It's different when you have a free agent in the building, and you say, we're not letting him leave. That's because this is a guy that you want to help your football team on the offense or defense. I guess special teams that we don't really do You hear those stories where the kicker wasn't allowed to leave a city or a building, But you don't want a guy to get back on the phone with his agent to go to the hotel or to make his way out of town. If you want to add them to your roster, and you don't want them talking. The other team's about more deals and Bring it. Play out longer you want You wanna get that deal done. I think this is a little different because this is such an important job. Right? You're you're read your reshaping the entire football operation. I understand you're gonna get rid of everyone top to bottom on the team side on the scouting side on the personnel side. All of that, but Philosophically. There's going to be an adjustment in the change. You want people. They're gonna match up with you. I think In the big picture sense and gonna help pick the players that he wants. And the guy that Jo Alice is gonna be proud to let run the team and John Elway right under him for as long as John's around, but You don't want to just because you had a guy in the building said, Hey, we have to sign him because he may go to the lines. And something tells me that Even if George Payton does get an offer from the Lions, he will let the Broncos no. Assuming that there's a chance he wanted. He wants one job more. The other vice versa. The Broncos making an offer, he'll let the lines no. Hey, the Broncos offered me a four year contract for this Do you guys want Imagine we want to talk about this is Agent will obviously you would think, but S Oh, yeah, I'm with you, Ben. I don't think you read too much into it. If it goes a week or two, and they haven't made any moves, and you say, Okay, what are they doing if they had more zoom interviews with either of these candidates or personal or added candidates? We saw her. Detroit was talking more people today for the first time. There's nothing wrong with that, either..
