    Jackson in for physical, meeting

    By The Denver Post

    Whatever depth problems the Broncos may have at kicker, or punter, or defensive tackle, or offensive tackle, they are compensating for at receiver.

    Free-agent receiver Darrell Jackson will take his physical at Dove Valley today, before he and his representative Brian Mooney sit down with Broncos officials. The two sides have already agreed on the financial parameters of a contract, so it appears Jackson is only a handshake away from becoming the latest receiver with an NFL pedigree to join the Broncos.

    With 487 career receptions and 50 touchdowns in eight NFL seasons, Jackson, 29, will compete with Keary Colbert, whom the Broncos culled from the free-agent market last month, at No. 2 receiver.

    Besides Jackson, the Broncos also signed former Kansas City receiver Samie Parker this week to a one-year deal.

    Adding Jackson and Parker to a pass-catching stable that already included Brandon Marshall, Brandon Stokley and Colbert implies the Broncos won't be taking a receiver in the first two rounds of the draft next week.

    Considering what the raiders have done, KC shopping Jared Allen and now this, there should be NO DOUBT that our team is the only one with a clue in the AFC West.

    and that's still not saying much (though I think the Chiefs might have some sort of an idea what's going on)

    if Brandon Marshall falters even remotely, the Broncos will be left with Jackson (constantly injured), Stokley (hard worker but nothing more then a slot receiver) and Colbert (a bust) to shoulder the load. And that'll mean the team absolutely crashes

    I too think the Chiefs have a method to their madness. They know they need help and they'll have to part w/ Allen in order to bring in more young talent. Allen wants out because, let's face it, the Cheifs are gonna suck for a few more years. At least they are not out signing anyone and everyone out on the FA scene.

    KC, IMO, is at the very least, trying to do something right. Denver, I just don't get it. :icon_huh:

    They're all grasping at straws. The only problem is that someone has dropped a cigarette butt in in the hay loft. The rosters of the other teams are dotted with people who are habitually dinged with physical injuries or emotional ones. If this was the NHL we'd be called the PTSD division.
