It's 2020 and not only a new decade but a new era for Denver Broncos football. What should be on the team's wish list for the new year?
The times are certainly changing with the Denver Broncos, thankfully for the better.
The 2010s ended up being a mostly great decade for the team, and looking at some of the key events in hindsight, all of the dark times were more than worth the eventual outcome.
- 2010: Tim Tebow, Demaryius Thomas drafted (1st round)
- 2011: John Elway brought back, Von Miller drafted, Tebow time
- 2012: Peyton Manning signed as a free agent
- 2013: Best offense in NFL history/AFC Champions
- 2014: Best free-agent class in NFL history (DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib, TJ Ward, Emmanuel Sanders)
- 2015: Super Bowl 50 Champs!
- 2016-18: Rebuilding
- 2019: Drew Lock, the future, is here
There have been so many incredible moments throughout the last 10 years for the Denver Broncos, but it's time for a new era of Broncos football.
The team is marching into the new decade with new expectations, a young quarterback to build around, a head coach who has been a great fit, and a lot of assets both in the draft and free agency to put together a playoff team for 2020.
Over the course of the next couple of months, we'll be deep-diving into the 2020 NFL Free Agent class as well as the 2020 NFL Draft class but we already sort of know where the Broncos have needs, so we can identify some possible fits for the team moving forward.
With seven selections in the top four rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft and almost $70 million in cap space before roster cuts are made, we have an opportunity to dream big this offseason, Broncos Country.
This offseason could be similar to the 2014 offseason in which the Broncos signed DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib, TJ Ward, and Emmanuel Sanders.
That free agency ultimately won the Broncos a Super Bowl.
Let's build something special in Denver to kick off the next decade.
