Denver Broncos Relatively Quiet On Free Agency Day One
The Denver Broncos addressed one need on day one of free agency, but were quiet for most of the day as other teams picked up their needs.
Before free agency began, it was believed that the Denver Broncos would be aggressive during the free agency period.
It was even to the point that fans and analysis believed they would sign some key names in free agency.
However, John Elway and company were surprisingly quiet during the first day. Of course, that does not mean the team did not make any attempts to make a big splash.
Ronald Leary, formally from the Dallas Cowboys, was signed by the Denver Broncos this afternoon. His deal came in at four years for $35 million, with $20 million guaranteed.
It appears that the inside of the offensive line for the Denver Broncos is now set.
The team was in the running early on in the day when it was revealed that former Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calias Campbell, in fact, did not agree with Jacksonville.
The Broncos made a push to try to snatch him away from the Jaguars. However, they made one more offer that was just a bit over what Denver was intending to go with.
Free agency saw some key names that we here at Predominantly Orange thought the Broncos would go after. But it appears as if John Elway is waiting it out.
Perhaps the biggest story that surfaced today involved a former Broncos quarterback. Brock Osweiler was traded to the Cleveland Browns.
And in returned, it cued up all the laughs from Broncos Country fans.

And it may not be over yet as Cleveland could either find a trade partner for Osweiler or release him. The Browns could also keep him. That will be something to keep an eye on.
Day Two should have some more interesting signings. Maybe we will see a move that will have the NFL doing a double take.
