The Denver Broncos have been active in upgrading the defensive side of the ball in the 2021 NFL free agency negotiating period, re-signing defensive lineman Shelby Harris and bringing in cornerback Ronald Darby from the Washington Football Team.
The Broncos could continue to look for upgrades on defense at the cornerback position and possibly at safety as well with Kareem Jackson’s option for 2021 being declined.
With that being said, the attention from Broncos Country should turn somewhat to the quarterback position, where the Broncos are expected to add a veteran to compete with and hopefully push Drew Lock.
What is interesting at this point is which players the Broncos have not been in on thus far.
One of the top guys on the free agent market was veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick of the Miami Dolphins, who has signed a one-year deal worth $10 (up to 12) million with the Washington Football Team.
The Broncos were not “in” on Fitzpatrick that we know of, and they were also not “in” on Jameis Winston, who re-signed with the New Orleans Saints on a one-year contract as well.
The Broncos are also not “in” on Andy Dalton, the veteran who has played for the Bengals and Cowboys.
Where are the Denver Broncos going if not with these options?
There are still names available in free agency but the Broncos could also explore a couple of trade options if guys are available for a reasonable price.
Let’s take a look through some of the best options still available to the Broncos that fit the criteria of guys who could compete with and push Drew Lock in 2021.
