Free agent linebacker Geno Hayes will visit the Broncos

NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that the Broncos have scheduled a free agent visit for linebacker Geno Hayes, formerly of the Buccaneers.

Hayes, 24, made 45 starts over the past three years in Tampa. He was benched in November of last season for tackling poorly.

Hayes is undersized but athletic, and he could be a role player in pass coverage while also playing on special teams.

It’s worth noting that incumbent Broncos weak-side linebacker D.J. Williams is in danger of missing the first six games of the 2012 season due to suspension. Williams is challenging the ban.

    It’s also worth noting (or maybe not) that D.J.’s real name is Genos. Maybe the s is for suspended.

    Please don’t sign him, the Broncos already have enough players on D that can not tackle.

    John Elway was a great quarterback. THE END.
