After setting their 53-man roster, the Denver Broncos will head into the 2020 season with just three safeties on the roster.

Justin Simmons, Kareem Jackson and Trey Marshall make up the safety trio for the Broncos, but after waiving Alijah Holder, P.J. Locke and Douglas Coleman III on Saturday, they are the only safeties on the roster.

But there are 31 other teams in the league and each of them made their own cuts to get down to the league-mandated 53-man roster. There are plenty of safeties on that list.

Do the Broncos want another safety? Do they need another? Are they satisifed with just three guys or were Holder, Locke and Coleman just not up to the task?

It’s almost certain that at least one of those players will find his way to the practice squad, assuming he will clear waivers, but the Broncis should also scan the waiver wire with a fine-toothed comb and see if there is a safety out there that makes sense.

Of course, signing one would also mean they would have to cut a player who did make the team to begin with, so that is another decision that would have to be discussed.

With those things in mind, here are three names the Broncos could consider adding on Sunday.
