The Denver Broncos had a fairly successful free agency period, but according to OddsShark, that didn’t improve their odds of winning Super Bowl LIV.
The Denver Broncos are starting over in many ways in 2019. After two failed seasons with Vance Joseph at head coach, the team hired former Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio as the new lead man.
Denver filled some needs in free agency when they signed offensive lineman Ja’Wuan James to be the right tackle, as well as cornerback Kareem Jackson.
They also added quarterback Joe Flacco via a trade with the Baltimore Ravens in February, which became official when the new league year began.
According to OddsShark, the Broncos’ odds of winning Super Bowl LIV are set at +6000, tied with the Tennessee Titans and New York Giants.
The 2019 NFL draft is just weeks away, and it will be very important for the Denver Broncos to fill their remaining holes through their rookie class. Last season, the team had a very successful draft class.
Linebacker Bradley Chubb recorded 12 sacks, and receiver Courtland Sutton gained quite a bit of experience after the trade of Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans, as well as after Emmanuel Sanders went down with an Achilles injury.
The Broncos still have some questions to answer. How will Joe Flacco fare in a new system on a brand new team? How will the players around him fare?
How big of an impact will the new arrivals make?
These questions are not going to be answered immediately. A lot of work is going to have to be put in the next couple of months to see where the team is at, mentally and physically.
Nobody knows what will happen in the future, especially in a league like the NFL. I am certain, however, that with a lot of hard work and coming together as a team, the Denver Broncos could surprise people.
Only time will tell what will happen. One step at a time is a common saying in sports, and even when teams are not on the field, it still applies due to the many hours of work they have to put in to make their team the best they possibly can be.
