    Adam Weber's NFL negotiations, stalled for nearly five months during the league's lockout, finally got under way Tuesday morning.
     By 9 a.m., they were over, and Weber was a Denver Bronco.
     "It's really crazy. I had a few good options, and I had to look at them really quickly and make a decision so I can get to work," Weber said. "Teams have different motivations that you have to figure out -- like some are just looking for an extra arm for camp -- but it wasn't hard. When I looked at the Broncos, it was kind of a no-brainer."
     He'll be reunited with former Gopher Eric Decker, who caught 200 of his passes in college, with the Broncos. Weber will report to training camp on Wednesday.
     More Gopher signings: Fullback Jon Hoese has agreed to a free-agent contract with the Green Bay Packers, while offensive lineman Dominic Alford has joined the Cleveland Browns.
