Seeing as the Broncos just signed a no-named DB named Rojesterman Farris, why not sign a corner who has actually played decent ball in the NFL?

Dre Kirkpatrick once signed a $50 million contract with the Cincinnati Bengals and played the 2020 season with the Arizona Cardinals.

Kirkpatrick isn’t a great corner, but I’d say he’s been very consistent his whole career.  Since it’s clear the Broncos are still addressing the secondary, even in August, why not take a chance on Kirkpatrick?

The Denver Broncos already have four quality corners and Michael Ojemudia, but I think Kirkpatrick can push OJ down the depth chart one slot.

Adding another quality defensive back to the secondary only makes the Broncos richer, and they’ll need all the help they can get being in a division with the Chiefs, Chargers, and Raiders.

Although, I do think the team is about done making additions to the secondary.

You see, Broncos Country, there are still quite a few quality free agents available, and one of the most valuable things in the NFL is quality depth.

Being that the Broncos’ depth was tested last year, it would not hurt to bring in all five of these players.
