    Hopefully this is just ammo to trade for the Great Christian Kamara.

    I’m not sold on Gordon’s character and hard work.

    I dont care for this signing at all.

    Hopefully he and Lindsey become the 1/2 punch Freeman should have been with Lindsay.

    Gordon has always been good in the redzone. Lets hope he becomes a force.

    Agree with this take from Renck. I'm mildly worried that three of our four major acquisitions are coming off down seasons, but it could also prove to have big upside acquiring them at reasonable costs.

    Great outlet out of the backfield for a young QB...also brings a veteran presence. Lock, Sutton, Fant, Lindsay, etc. all have 2 years or less experience. Need a veteran guy to be a vocal presence until the kids mature a little.

    Risk/reward signings, but the reward is pretty high, IMO. All three have Pro Bowl upside as noted.

    I think there are underlying things that play into those down seasons more than aging or diminishing skill. The entire Jacksonville team quit last year and Bouye got lost in it all. No one that defense really had a great season, but teams would jump at the chance to land many of them. Casey just didn't seem to fit all that well in Pees system and maybe even less in what Vrabel is looking to do, but on paper would be great under Fangio. And Gordon's down year is really just the result of his holdout. I don't think he's a guy you give the ball to 250 times a year...especially behind the line he had in SD, but neither is Lindsay. The two of them as a combo should be really good.

    Melvin's had one year (1) where he ran for more than 4 ypc. He's not a Get His Own Yards kind of guy, he's an outlet guy who makes all his money off getting a big play or a score. The rest of the time he's not especially relevant.

    Big plays, especially scoring plays, matter a ton. As a tandem back I think they overpaid (although he got a higher offer elsewhere, it's reported) but I get the desire for an outlet to help the young QB. It's not like Denver's other RBs can't catch the ball though. Still seems odd.

    Shurmur likes using his backs in the passing game. I think he learned a lot about running a RBBC in his year where Chip Kelly decided to try to ruin the Eagle's organization and they ended up with Murray, Sproles, and Ryan Matthews.

    Hope the draft is a hit this year, still lots of holes.

    Gordon really doesnt make or break us, just another high dollar body, imo.
