Broncos agree to terms with Ayers

The Denver Broncos, who had two first-round picks in the 2009 draft, had not yet agreed to terms with either player.

That changed today when, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN Future, the Broncos worked out a deal with defensive end Robert Ayers.

It’s a five-year deal for the 18th overall pick in the draft.

Meanwhile, running back Knowshown Moreno, the Broncos’ other first-rounder and the twelfth overall selection, remains unsigned.

Moreno is caught in a jam of players whose agents apparently are waiting to see what happens with receiver Michael Crabtree’s contract in San Francisco.  Crabtree was the tenth pick in the draft, and it widely has been reported that his agent, Eugene Parker, hopes to blow the slotting system apart by getting a deal equivalent to the packages paid out in the top five.

    no kidding Abe… very annoying indeed! why are these guys getting paid based off what someone else who isn’t even playing the same position is getting? shouldn’t they be paid based on what they’ve done on the field and not what someone else did who got drafted a few picks ahead of them??

    Honest Abe – I agree with you
    It’s about time someone puts their foot down on these ridiculous increases. Parker & Craptree are thieves!~!!

    When these NFL unproven college players (Crabtree) decide to holdout for more money, it really shows their commitment to the organization and to winning. I can already see his Diva like qualities that will be cancer to the team. He is an “all about me” player and I feel bad for the 49ers. This situation reminds of Russel with the Raiders, how’s he coming along?? I feel déjà vu .

    Parker must be smoking crack. That’s the only logical explaination….

    Knowshon Moreno should change agents, take the $12.7 million bonus and get to camp.

    Perhaps the rumor that he was a diva is what scared the other 9 teams off from drafting him. He sure isn’t doing anything to dispel that notion, even if it’s his agent who is trying to get #5 money. At the end of the day, his agent works for him, not the other way around.
