The Denver Broncos have been in rich-get-richer mode this offseason, as the Super Bowl participants added a number of key pieces to their roster. Since they are in good shape roster-wise, a case could be made for trading out of the first round, where they hold the 31st pick. However, Mike Klis of the Denver Post thinks that a different case can be made that they should use that pick because of how first-round contracts work under the current CBA.

UPDATE: Whether the NFL believes that OC Adam Gase and QB Peyton Manning violated the CBA when they were hosted by Alabama coach Nick Saban recently remains to be seen, but Saban doesn't think there was a problem.

"Saban told The Denver Post on Friday night he never met with quarterback Peyton Manning and offensive coordinator Adam Gase together two weeks ago, strengthening the Broncos' case that no NFL rules were broken," wrote Mike Klis and Troy E. Renck.

Still, there may be some gray area of concern, since Saban said that Gase and Manning were together, even though it was, "only to say hello and B.S. with each other."

The NFL is looking into the situation, so we should hear something from the league down the road.
