    Green is going to Denver

    The New England to Denver pipeline is alive and well.

    The Broncos announced Tuesday they signed defensive end Jarvis Green, who played the first eight years of his career with the Patriots. New England was hoping to keep him.

    Green won't post splashy stats (he has three sacks the last two years), but he's a rock solid rotation end in a 3-4 defense. The Broncos need competent warm bodies, and they've now added Justin Bannan and Green.

    Adam Schefter of ESPN reports Green will earn $7.5 million in the first two years of a four-year contract. The total value of the deal can reach $20 million.

    Green will mostly play on passing downs, but this signing makes it less likely the Broncos pick up Dwan Edwards.

    This was from Profootballtalk.com. Not a huge loss but a lose nonetheless.

    Meh, no real loss. He had 2 down seasons in a row, and Pryor and Wright did a good job replacing him.

    Almost as good as Thomas Jones going to the Chefs.
