How do you hit home runs in free agency? You have to swing for the fences.
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway is certainly known for his willingness to take chances and has already taken a big one by trading for Joe Flacco. What other home run swings can Elway take in free agency?
I put together a list of some of the most intriguing moves Elway could make, all on guys who are under 30 and it just so happens that all were formerly high draft choices.

What if Elway decided to push all of his chips into the middle of the high-risk, high-reward table in free agency? Let’s take a look at a group of names that, if signed, could either propel the Broncos into contention or leave them hanging.
