The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! DMac says if you can’t go out without a gun, maybe just stay in. Bradley Roby gets his contract extended & Aqib Talib is off the hook from his looming suspension following his shooting incident in June 2016. Charlie Campbell of Walter Football joins the show to discuss what all would go into the selection of Garett Bolles at No. 20 overall. Troy Renck joins the guys to talk about paying 8.5 million for a third corner like Bradley Roby, with Aqib Talib getting up there in age and fresh off losing Kayvon Webster.

 

LISTEN TO HOUR ONE HERE!!!

Guns are a part of some NFL lifestyles, Al tells DMac, and the guys compare where they grew up and how many people they knew had a gun. Police say Aqib Talib’s attorney provided a statement saying the Broncos top corner admitted to shooting himself, and the NFL will not discipline Talib following the incident in June 2016. Memphis Grizzlies Head Coach David Fizdale rants about Pop and the Spurs, and the guys rank the best rants of all-time by coaches and players.

 

LISTEN TO HOUR TWO HERE!!!

The guys debate what’s considered a negligent discharge of a firearm after Aqib Talib’s shooting incident back in June of 2016. Charlie Campbell of Walter Football joins the show to discuss what all would go into the selection of Garett Bolles at No. 20 overall. Charlie says teams typically take the best player available at the three most critical positions of need. The Broncos filled most of their needs in free agency, but could still use a LT like Bolles according to Campbell. Al says we know there will be draft-day trades, and Charlie says watch out for the Browns to trade up for Trubisky or Watson. Campbell says the Broncos will be in the mix for Mixon in the early rounds, and can’t deny Mixon is a first-round talent with some baggage. Listen to the interview HERE!

 

LISTEN TO HOUR THREE HERE!!!

Troy Renck joins the guys to talk about paying 8.5 million for a third corner like Bradley Roby, with Aqib Talib getting up there in age and fresh off losing Kayvon Webster. Renck says the deal was a no-brainer, and everyone still has Talib’s back as a leader of the Broncos’ defense. DMac gauges the value of Emmanuel Sanders’ proposed passing camp, and Troy says those who put the time in must care about it. Sanders sees himself as a leader, and Troy says McCaffrey is the safest & easiest pick to make in the first round. Listen to the interview HERE! Also, bonus coverage of Tim Tebow working a walk and grounding out as he bats fifth today for the Fireflies.
