Eh, the Broncos will be OK. Besides, this couldn't have happened to a better person.
Don't cry for Maurice Clarett, Argentina.

My Donkeys have made more dumb moves over the years - I hated this pick when it happened and I am glad that it is finally over. I don't know where Clarett will wind up but odds are he gets signed by the Raiders just to piss off Broncos fans everywhere even more.....

Originally posted by BullittThis didn't really hurt Denver, though. Clarett jacked his contract with incentives and took no signing bonus. I think the cap hit is minimal at best, possibly zero.
No harm to the Broncos here...
The harm to the Broncos is wasting a third round pick. Those are guys that are at worst expected to contribute on special teams. No signing bonus for Maurice? Well, hope he saved up the money he was paid at Ohio State. And, maybe he and Lawrence Phillips can organize pick-up football games across the country.
I know that it's hit or miss but Denver still could use that pick on someone that helped them instead of another runningback. And I know that there wasn't much risk because Clarett didn't get a signing bonus but it's still a waste.
Duce has looked like a new man the last two weeks. Battling for extra yards, hitting the hole quicker, all that... Perhaps the knee injury is finally a thing of the past. They do say it takes more than a year to get everything back.
