Jeff Saturday Update: Broncos, Packers Are Final Two Players For Former Colts Center

The Denver Broncos already have J.D. Walton as their young starting center. The Green Bay Packers just lost their veteran starter Scott Wells to the St. Louis Rams in free agency. It seems like Jeff Saturday’s decision should be easy, and the Broncos shouldn’t even be in the equation. But one thing is true about Denver: they have Peyton Manning. Saturday must consider what it would be like to not have his long-time teammate working with him again now that he’s healthy.

The Broncos are making room for Peyton’s friends no matter who is already on the roster, but the Packers have a greater need. It will be interesting to see where Saturday lands at this point.

Shawn Zobel writes via Twitter, “Sounds like Jeff Saturday is down to Green Bay and Denver for his finalists. Packers have a strong offer that he’s considering”.

If he lands in Denver, then the Broncos might be open to get rid of Walton. The former Baylor Bear was the third round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Broncos and he could make a good competition and depth addition for the Chiefs if available. Rodney Hudson is presumed to take over the center position after Casey Wiegmann likely retires, but Hudson is versatile enough to play guard.
