NFL Notes: Broncos, Browns, Cardinals, & Chargers

Broncos

Jason Cole of B/R reports that the Broncos believe newly acquired TE Vernon Davis provides them with a key threat in their passing attack.

The Broncos view Davis as an upgrade to Owen Daniels and Virgil Green.

Of course, there’s still the issue of whether Davis can learn their offense in time to have an impact for them over the remainder of the season. Cole mentions that it took Davis a long time to learn the 49ers offense in the past.

Browns

Browns GM Ray Farmer said that he has not received any inclination that his job is in jeopardy.

My job is to work hard and try to bring talent to the Browns, continue to work in my environment, which is player acquisition and so that’s what I’ll do,” said Farmer, via Nate Ulrich. “I’ll continue to do that to the best of my ability and work as a Browns employee until they tell me otherwise. But I haven’t been given that memo.

In regards to trading LT Joe Thomas to the Broncos, Farmer insisted he wasn’t as close to trading him as people believe.

I don’t know if I was really close to completing [a trade],” Farmer said. “We didn’t actively go out and try to move anybody. There’s not a single team that I called and said, ‘Hey, look. I’m shopping so and so.’ So there was no shopping from my perspective. But I definitely listened, and I think that’s part of my job…”
