Despite the money, I think this is a smart move by the Broncos. The goal is to develop your franchise QB, and that entails trying to build a solid core around him. They've got a veteran running back, allowing them time to develop another young runner (which subsequently means they won't have to go TE early in the draft). They aren't apt to go OL early, which means that Graham's blocking prowess could be more beneificial. He's a solid mid-range target that will allow Scheffler to attack the seams more. There's a blend of young and veteran talent at WR. It'd be nice to see an OL addition or two, even for depth purposes, but all in all, I like the offseason. THey know that they need to develop and nurture Cutler, and these veteran pieces should help.

THey can now use the draft picks to address defense early, and to shore up some depth issues. The Bly situation will be interesting to see how it plays out, but on the offensive side of the ball, it's been a smart offseason.

No, he is not worth the money ... but I think it's a smart move.

This enables the Broncos to use a 2 TE set a lot more effectively. He will easily add at least 20 yards a game on the ground and 5 more rushing TD's. Don't you guys remember the 49ers game when the Broncos had 3 drives into the 49ers 5 yard line and kicked a field goal each time? He will help the running game down there and provide a big target down there.
I like adding him, he is a way better blocker than any other non OL the Broncos have. Plus he has some good hands and is a very effective receiver. As much as I like Scheffler, it doesn't appear he is ready to be the premier TE because of his blocking.

Wow that's a lot of money, Raiders knew they had no chance at him.

I think we needed Graham, maybe not for this much but it's a good signing. Scheffler is still developing his blocking skills and Graham will come in and help us out in that category as well.

Yeah, he can do both catch the ball and block good signing.
