3 things the Denver Broncos must do in the 2022 offseason
Three Things Denver Broncos Must Do in 2022
3. Upgrade the trenches
The Denver Broncos were not good against the run this season, and their offensive line is painfully average.
We were just informed that the Broncos reworked Graham Glasgow’s salary for 2022, so he figures to be back in the mix.
There are only two positions along the offensive line that should be penned in for 2022; Garett Bolles and Quinn Meinerz.
The other three positions, in my opinion, should be upgraded, whether that’s from the draft or in free agency. In fact, George Paton recently made a similar comment, so the team figures to upgrade along both lines.
As many of you know, I am very low on Dalton Risner and Lloyd Cushenberry, so I think both of their positions should be upgraded. I also would not mind if the team looks to acquire a higher-end right tackle, but Bobby Massie held his own.
As for the defensive line, it’s a solid unit, but Mike Purcell was not nearly as good this year and is getting up there in age, along with Shelby Harris, but Harris enjoyed another solid season.
Dre’Mont Jones is a cornerstone along the line, but the team needs more youth and athleticism in that unit.
Broncos free agents who should stay or go no matter who is head coach
The Denver Broncos are set to have a good amount of free agents, but will the new head coach factor into which free agents return?
The Broncos cannot afford to be poor against the run in 2022. Games in the NFL are won and lost in the trenches, so the Broncos need to do whatever it takes to upgrade both units, or they risk another lost season.
