Broncos are shopping CB Alphonso Smith

A tough mistake to admit. After trading a 2010 first-round pick to select Smith 37th overall in the 2009 draft, the Broncos are seeking just a fifth-rounder in return. They probably won't get it. Players exchanged for fifth-rounders of late include Santonio Holmes, Josh Wilson, Ted Ginn, Tony Scheffler, and Josh Wilson. All are impact players. Smith is not.

He would certainly help us out matching up against the Saints. He is an upgrade over Chevis (who I don't think makes the team), and he is younger and not coming off a serious knee injury like Brian Williams.

idk though because his contract for a 2nd round pick might be too much for what we want to use him for.

For once I can finally say that I feel like we are set at CB. Icing on the cake is that it looks like we have a possible gem in Franks to develop for the future.

Well as I said in another thread, you can never have too many db's.

If we could snag him for a 7th rounder, I say do it.

The last time we made a trade for a broncos corner it worked out well for us ;)

He's being outperformed by a 7th rounder and some other new scrub (I think an UDFA). They are shopping him because he is their worst corner. He's Denver's Chevis.

I would assume he has potential, but even if we grab him, where would he play? Just not worth it. If we make a move now, it should be for someone who has the chance to play.

Agree. He would basically be competing for a Nickel spot on this team right now, if even that. He's not worth it.

I too think we are solid at CB now, I was just pointing out that it would be an intriguing option. We all know Chevis won’t make the team, and we really haven't seen Williams tested yet in the preseason. Smith is young, and he has a ton of potential. He would make a great future NB for us. Grimes is a RFA next year, and with our depth solidified we might be able to sign and move him next offseason. Who knows maybe we could get something greater by moving Grimes in next year’s draft.

no way would i give up a draft pick for someone else's leftovers.....when a player is on verge of being cut - there is typically a good reason - because he's not playing well!!!!!

Sure, if Broncos cut Alphonso Smith, then I'm all for bringin' him in for a "look-see" but not trading draft picks - not when TD finds gems in the back half of the NFL draft.

Maybe,

Denvers coaches dont like mini-me Cbs,

like me!

Tall WRs=Field Day

But, Mighty Mouse and Grimes are putting up some great effort and I do like them for covering Steve Smith

But, I dont want another one, though

Even, if it is Smith

Find Prototype- 6-2 220lb Cb in Cover 2, IMO

Then, Make a thread

I would be an upgrade over Chevis right now. :lol: JMHO
