The Denver Broncos may be done in the big splash department in free agency, but they could still make waves in the second-tier.
The Denver Broncos made two big splashes on the first day of the free agent negotiating period, signing offensive tackle Ja’Wuan James and cornerback Kareem Jackson.
Those signings, coupled with the acquisition of Joe Flacco via trade, fill the team’s three most pressing needs of right tackle, cornerback, and quarterback.
That leaves wide receiver, linebacker, defensive tackle, and maybe another cornerback (depending who you ask) as the team’s top remaining needs.
How might John Elway and the Broncos attack those positions? They’ve spent their biggest chunk of free agent money already, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see the Broncos look into some bargains here as free agency progresses.
That also doesn’t mean the Broncos are going to sign only scrubs to fill out the roster, either.
Armed with about $22 million in cap space, the Broncos will have to find players willing to take low year one cap hits on multi-year deals, or just sign players to low, one-year prove it contracts, but they can still significantly improve this team.
Let’s take a look at some possibilities at their current biggest positions of need.
