    Former Patriots C Dan Koppen is very close to a 1-year deal with the Broncos. Good to see a good guy's getting another shot.

    Manning should enjoy having this guy snap him the ball...Dan was a huge favorite of Brady and I believe Tom once said he was like a brother to him.

    Great guy,great athlete.

    Happy for Koppen, unhappy that the Broncos' line will be slightly improved.

    Great to hear for Koppen!

    Although it will be weird for him having Tom's arch rival's hands on his tukhis.

    Good for Koppen. I don't know how much he has left, but I am glad he is getting another job.

    It's good to hear, but it'll be weird seeing him in another uniform.

    Update: looks like Koppen is now a Bronco.

    Source: Koppen agrees with Broncos - espnBoston


    • Peyton Manning's center is now Aaron Rodger's center
    • Tom Brady's center is now Peyton Manning's center

    Mixed emotions on this. Glad Dan got to continue to play and sad that he's gone. I wish him the best (except when he plays against the Patriots) and thank him for all the good years he played for the Patriots.

    Good question.

    Broncos reach agreement with veteran center Dan Koppen - The Denver Post



    Koppen will turn 33 Wednesday and missed most of last season with a fractured ankle suffered in the Patriots' first game. But even if Koppen isn't the same physically, his expertise in calling out protection schemes in the Patriots' no-huddle offense may be why he drew the Broncos' interest.

    The Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning executed the no-huddle well in a 31-19 win Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, there were a couple protection breakdowns against the Steelers that were caused by miscommunication.

    The Broncos' current center, J.D. Walton, has started all 35 games since he was drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft.

    Yes ... Brady said he liked that Koppen did not have a really sweaty butt.

    I'm not going to act until after the break. Then, we'll settle all business with the rest of the families, starting with Mangini.......
