Broncos Eyeing Safeties In Free Agency


While eyes and ears hone in on the Broncos’ quarterback situation, we can’t forget that there are other roster spots to attend to.

Perhaps the most important position for the Broncos to attend to is starting safety. It’s unknown if Brian Dawkins will be back next year, and the secondary saw some gaping holes last season in the form of deep passes and missed tackles.

Brandon Meriweather of the Chicago Bears visited with the Broncos Tuesday evening. His best season came in ’09 with the Patriots when he had 84 tackles, 5 interceptions, and 2 forced fumbles. Meriweather did not sign a contract with Denver upon leaving, and he is meeting with the Redskins Wednesday.

The Broncos are set to visit with Mike Adams Wednesday. The former Cleveland Browns safety had 64 tackles last season.

While filling the void through the draft is an idea, the Broncos want someone with more experience to guide second year safeties Rahim Moore and Quinton Carter, yet they want someone younger than Dawkins who is 38 years old.
