Denver Broncos and Greg Ellis. When you're trying to sell the Broncos on the purpose of getting a great veteren like Ellis, this is how you have to do it. Denver was 28th in the league at accumulating sacks with only 28 for the season... The Cowboys were 17th with 37 sacks. The Broncos have a heck of a run defense coming in 2nd in the league in rushing defense, so they have no problems with their Linebackers. In the playoffs, the Broncos only had 2 sacks in 2 games. Steelers had 15 sacks in 4 games. (not that this means anything) Here's the sales pitch (and I'm no salesman -keep that in mind ) You can't win Super Bowls with 2 sacks in 2 playoff games (Denver's playoff sack total) In the last 4 years, Ellis has consistantly gotten Dallas 7.5 - 8 - 9 - and 8 sacks. This year. LE - Courtney Brown = 2 sacks /Ebenezer Ekuban = 4 sacks Backup RE - Trevor Pryce = 4 sacks - and one of those were against Tucker in the Dallas game. DT - Mike Myers = 1 sack DT - Gerard Warren = 3 sacks So their starting front 4 accumulated 10 sacks last season, while part timer Ellis made 8 sacks on his own. The best pure rushers by a 4-3 defense should be gone by the time they pick, and even they are not all world. You guys have a 30th pick. We'll give you Ellis, a 5th, and next years 3rd for that 30th pick. Do we have a chance, or what more would we have to offer Denver?
