Denver trying to spoil Jaguars’ Calais Campbell deal

AP

Remember kids, all the deals that aren’t #asexpected are still #barringalatesnag until 4 p.m.

According to James Palmer of the NFL Network, the Broncos are trying to get in on Cardinals defensive lineman Calais Campbell, who had reportedly agreed to a deal with the Jaguars last night.

Whether they’re able to reel him in or not remains to be seen, but it shows the dangers of letting word out early. Because if for some reason the Jaguars can’t close the deal, they’ll be hit with the double whammy of missing a player they want and looking like bridesmaids.

Campbell stands to cash in, regardless, and would help the Broncos make up for last year’s loss of Malik Jackson, who bolted for Jacksonville after the Super Bowl run.

It also wouldn’t be the first time this happened in free agency, as the Eagles found out when they thought they had a deal with Frank Gore.

    Jacksonville: where careers go to die

    2017: Maybe with all the tampering going on before free agency, we should open up a “legal tampering” window a few days early.

    2018: ditto
    2019: ditto ………………

    January 2025: In breaking news…. expected starting QB for this years’ superbowl has reportedly signed a free agent offer with the London Royals, so instead of starting in the superbowl he will be flying to London to begin learning the new playbook.

    Bronco’s vs Jaguars?

    One is making a SB run, the other trying to win 6 games.

    Let’s see. Ice and snow or sunny beaches. It might take him 2 seconds to decide.

    Elway carrying a grudge?

    “One is making a SB run, the other trying to win 6 games.”

    The Jaguars are making a Super Bowl run? Who knew?

  12. jakehoyt says: Mar 9, 2017 12:37 PM

    Both teams have no answer at quarterback

    Lose lose for CC super bowl run wise. Florida it is.

    As long as Denver’s offer is more than 4.63% more it just doesn’t matter.

    Actually its lets see…

    Play at home for one of the best fan bases in the world or play in Jacksonville where they have a half empty stadium and people forget who you are.

    Denver about to fidget the books again

  16. swagjag says: Mar 9, 2017 12:48 PM

    I don’t know if Coughlin is upset about this or not because his face always looks that way.

  17. One For The D**k #Six says: Mar 9, 2017 12:52 PM

    One has to assume that Joseph took one look and Campbell and envisioned himself drunk and naked trying to cuddle up with him

  18. kayakattack says: Mar 9, 2017 12:57 PM

    Go overpay for Tony Romo and leave Campbell alone you dank ponies

  19. bassplucker says: Mar 9, 2017 1:00 PM

    I hate it when teams pull crap like this.

  20. thefatlazygamer says: Mar 9, 2017 1:03 PM

    Why did they wait before jumping in bed with him and giving him an offer? Did they wait until he got drunk from celebrating the Jaguars offer first?

  21. tedmurph says: Mar 9, 2017 1:05 PM

    I don’t get why some people think no state income tax on 8 game checks is some kind of huge incentive. We’re talking about 100k here. For the amt these guys are signing for, it’s a drop in the bucket. States with no taxes usually make up the money in other ways, such as fees. Certainly no big deciding factor.

    As for the Denver guy talking about a SBowl run, just like to remind that they didn’t even make the playoffs last yr, and still don’t have a QB or any decent OLinemen. TRomo? Wow, I’m shaking.

    The Donko’s are going to deliver bags of cash to circumvent the salary cap, like they did when they won their Super Bowls.

  23. jtabronco says: Mar 9, 2017 1:07 PM

    why the heck would anyone wanna play for the jags over the broncos anyway. players go to the jags for money not for winning, cambell on the other side of miller would be a nightmare for opposing offenses
