Comments - I almost expected to see Frank quarterback Frank Tripucka and running back Gene Mingo on this extensive list of second and third level players; five of whom either started or finished the season on the injured reserve list. . The Broncos have a very long way to go and virtually nobody on this ageing list of UFA's will be there when they return to their past glory. Tom Nalen missed the entire 2008 with injury and after 15 seasons in the league this undersized center career is likely over, but I've got to tell you, I have to believe he's the quickest center I've ever seen in the professional game. His ability to reach and block playside was second to none. Tatum Bell looked pretty good in the season finale, but less than a month before was selling cell phones at a Denver mall, Rod Smith is essentially retired, Edell Shepherd and Darnell Jackson are journeymen. Ebenezer, Webster and McCree are all starters on a very average defensive unit while much traveled back up quarterback Patrick Ramsey, is what he is; a strong armed QB with limited quickness and mobility.
