The Denver Broncos could be in the market for some help in the secondary this offseason. Here are five underrated 2019 free agent options.

The Denver Broncos have around $40 million in cap space heading into the 2019 offseason, but what will they spend that money on?

There will certainly be some investment made on the offensive side of the ball where the Broncos have been atrocious really for the past four seasons, but the defense has some holes that need patching up as well, particularly in the secondary.

The Broncos’ defensive backfield could be losing Bradley Roby (unrestricted free agent) and Darian Stewart (cap casualty) from the starting lineup. Roby was a first-round draft pick, but the Broncos have found high-impact starters in the free agency bargain bin.

Back in 2014, they signed free agent safety T.J. Ward to a contract worth less than $5.7 million per year, considered a bargain at the time for a Pro Bowl player.

The following offseason, they found Darian Stewart who was a role player and spot starter for the Ravens at two years, $4.25 million.

They’ve had another number of bargain players who ended up playing at a high level like Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Mike Adams, so who could join those guys on that long list of free agent finds for John Elway and company?

Let’s take a look at five options set to become available in the next month-and-a-half.
