As teams in the NFL begin to shape their 53 man rosters and practice squads, the Denver Broncos should still look to make a few more moves.

Over the past few days, the Denver Broncos have rounded out their 53 man roster and 16-man practice squad.  However, there are still players out there that the team should consider bringing in, whether it be via trade, free agency, or waivers

George Paton has done a phenomenal job building the 2021 Denver Broncos.  The team has depth that hasn’t been seen in years, and his free agency and draft acquisitions appear to be excellent choices.

However, good teams should constantly look to add quality talent throughout the season.

Injuries will happen, and it’s up to the front office to help fill needs that arise.

There are still good players out there that the Broncos should consider bringing in, even after rounding out their initial 53 man roster and practice squad.

5 Moves the Denver Broncos Should Still Make: Free Agency

1. Sign Tyler Eifert, TE (Jaguars)

This may or may not be the second or third time I’ve mentioned Tyler Eifert.  He’s an athletic freak who has battled injuries throughout his career but has an incredibly high ceiling.  He will be 31 this year, but I think the Broncos are in need of a veteran tight end presence to go with Noah Fant, Albert Okwuegbunam, Eric Saubert, and Andrew Beck, who also plays some fullback.

Both Fant and Okwuegbunam suffered injuries last year, so there should be a small injury concern for both of them.

I don’t think it’ll be a long-term issue for either, but it can’t be ruled out, especially with a 17-game season.  Plus, Fant is nursing a minor injury now, and Albert O is returning from a torn ACL.

Eifert who has stayed healthy the past two seasons would provide the Broncos with more athleticism at the position and is still a viable tight end target.

With Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback, we can expect fewer shots downfield, so having a solid tight end room is paramount to the Broncos’ offensive efficiency.
