The Denver Broncos could begin their attempt to get back into contention by signing some free agents from the Chiefs or 49ers in 2020.
If you can't beat 'em, pay 'em to join you. That may be the strategy the Broncos and plenty of other teams employ this offseason as the mass exodus from both Kansas City and San Francisco begins.
The Broncos know all too well what it's like to have free agents leave for greener pastures following a Super Bowl victory, as well as what it's like to have to reload your roster after losing in the Super Bowl and feeling like you might not get back there any time soon.
Both the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers have free agents at positions of interest for the Denver Broncos, positions we expect the Broncos to throw a substantial amount of cash at when the new league year comes in March.
In the Broncos' context, signing a free agent from the Chiefs could be considered a victory in multiple ways as it not only makes your team better but also makes a division rival weaker.
There is no guarantee every single one of these players will make it to market, but with the amount of money the Chiefs, specifically, have invested at other positions and will soon have invested in Patrick Mahomes, we could see some key players from their Super Bowl run get to free agency.
The 49ers have cap space to be able to retain some key players, but they may not be able to hang onto everyone they want.
Here are some players the Broncos could be watching from the two teams represented in Super Bowl LIV.
