With Eric Decker departing via free agency, the Broncos will look to free agency and the draft to replace him, and one name that has popped up is former Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell.

John Elway is not exactly playing nice with the Patriots…and I love it.

The Broncos would love to see the Pats’ roster weakened and theirs strengthened with players who are drawing interest from both sides. The Broncos already whizzed on New England last season, signing Wes Welker and then beating them in the AFC Title game. They then signed former Pats corner Aqib Talib to a six-year deal in a free agency day one shocker.

LaFell had a nice season for the Panthers in 2013, catching a career-high 49 passes for 627 yards and five touchdowns, and is only 27 years old. He’s also got good size at 6’2″ 210 pounds and would be an intriguing #2 receiver in the Broncos’ offense opposite Demaryius Thomas.
