Under the radar players Broncos should target in offseason
The secondary will most likely be a top priority for the Broncos, who aren’t expected to bring back A.J. Bouye, who missed five games with a nagging shoulder injury, but further hurt his chances when he was given a six-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs.
While San Francisco general manager John Lynch will have a number of decisions himself, whether that be bringing back left tackle Trent Williams or linebacker Fred Warner, cornerback Richard Sherman has stated that given their roster situation, a reunion is unlikely.
Bringing in Sherman would be a bit of a gamble, although not as big as giving up a fourth-round pick, given his history of injuries and the fact that he hasn’t played a full 16 since 2016 (limited to just five games last year). Sherman, however, can still provide quality intangibles, size and speed, even at 32.
Rookie Michael Ojemudia performed solid enough when thrusted into the starting role, and having Sherman mentor and take the number one spot, could help him develop into the corner of the future.
