Defensive End Free Agents Talk

As the three-day legal non-tampering tampering period slowly unfolds, a trio of teams are believed to be keenly interested in the available defensive ends.

The Falcons, the Titans, and the Broncos are leading the way.

Atlanta needed help at the position even before cutting John Abraham eight days ago. The Falcons are believed to be keenly interested in Osi Umenyiora and Dwight Freeney.

Ditto for the Titans, who wanted to chase Mario Williams last year but who were waiting for Peyton Manning to pick a team or get off the pot.

The Broncos have a potential need because they potentially will be cutting Elvis Dumveril. It’s possible that the decision on Dumervil will depend on what it would take to sign his replacement, versus what he would take on a reduced salary to stay.

I sure hope that Osi and Freeney aren't our idea of a solution to our pass rush issues. We might as well re-sign Abraham.

My sentiments exactly. I'm curious what "The Plan" is for improving the pass rush by losing your best pass rusher.
