1. Jurrell Casey, DL
While the Denver Broncos cut Jurrell Casey just a couple of months ago, they could try to bring him back at a discounted rate.
Casey was previously making $15 million per year on a contract he signed with the Tennessee Titans, and with three years remaining on that deal, the Titans sent him to the Denver Broncos for a seventh-round pick in 2020.
That was a great trade for the Denver Broncos, who had missed out on their top free agent target DJ Reader.
Although an injury limited Casey to just three appearances for the Broncos in 2020, if he’s back healthy and ready to play in the 2021 season, why not try and run this one back?
Injuries happen in the NFL and sometimes guys can come back in even better shape than they were before. Casey has been one of the top interior pass rushers in the NFL over the last decade, and the idea of putting him in the rotation the team had on paper last year was attractive enough.
The Broncos are largely bringing back that same group of guys, and having a veteran like Casey is never a bad idea if you can get them for the right price.
The Broncos could fortify their defensive line depth by bringing back big no. 99 and see if they can’t get that group of pass rushers all on the field for at least a few games in 2021, if not the whole season.
