    Broncos own one of highest draft pick retention rates in NFL

    A really interesting team came out yesterday that highlighted teams that draft well and teams that don’t draft well. The proof is in how teams retain their “homegrown talent” year after year. Since 2011, the Denver Broncos are fifth best in the NFL at retaining draft picks with exactly 50% of their draft picks still on the roster heading into the 2017 season. If you look at just 2014-16, the Broncos improve third best. Not bad, John Elway. If we dig a bit deeper into the other teams around the Broncos on the list you will find playoff rosters. The Cincinnati Bengals (59.6%) are at least competitive, as are the Houston Texans (51.1%). The Atlanta Falcons (52.4%) just came off a Super Bowl appearance

However, Thomas said he has no ill will toward his former team and something good came out of it away from football. Blake Bortles isn’t bothered by criticism - The Jacksonville Jaguars get back on the field Thursday

    The 2017 New England Patriots just might run the table

    I recall sitting with a few coworkers in the newsroom at The Score Television Network in Toronto, 10 years ago this spring, and gawking at the New England Patriots depth chart online. Somebody pulled it up and called us over to his workstation in order to broadly establish his point. The Patriots didn’t look like a team that could lose, he shouted. And none of us could disagree. The Pats were coming off a first-place, 12-win season. But they had refueled by adding Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Donté Stallworth on offense as well as reigning first-team All-Pro linebacker Adalius Thomas on defense. A good team wasn’t satisfied. Instead, it got better by trading for Moss, stealing Welker — a restricted
