According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Bunkley showed up at camp on Saturday and took a physical. However, the team had concerns over the results and decided not to go through with the trade. He then wound up with the Broncos. Even with the injury issues, the Broncos still win in this situation.
The team sent a conditional 2013 NFL Draft pick to the Eagles while the Browns were about to give up a 2012 draft pick. If he doesn't work out, the Broncos are out a draft pick in the later rounds that they could pick up in another trade down the line. But if Bunkley can come in and help out as a rotational player at defensive tackle, all the better.
Bunkley was the 14th overall selection in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Eagles and has largely been a disappointment. He played, but did not start, in 15 games his rookie season before becoming a starter for the following three seasons. He has just six sacks and none in 2010. He lost playing time in 2010, playing in 14 games, but starting just five.
This is another attempt by the Broncos to pick up former first-round talent that has failed to live up to their potential. Can the Broncos fix these reclamation projects?
