3 free agent do-overs for the Denver Broncos during 2022 offseason
Hindsight is 20/20, and is often fun to talk about, so lets look at three free agent do-overs for the Denver Broncos during the 2022 offseason.
The Denver Broncos free agency period was an objective success after the acquisition of Russell Wilson. Wilson is going to allow the Broncos to be a great team for years to come.
However, some of the free agent moves besides Wilson could be debated. I was personally not a fan of a few signings and believe that George Paton should have looked elsewhere instead of where he did.
Obviously, fans and content creators alike may never be 100% satisfied with their favorite team’s roster. Even though I wish George Paton would have made these three moves instead, I am still very thrilled with the team he and his staff have put together since he took over after the 2020 season.
Here are three free agent do-overs for the 2022 offseason.
Denver Broncos should have signed Morgan Moses instead of Billy Turner
I have written about Morgan Moses multiple times on this website. He was one of the main targets I hoped Denver would have signed in free agency. Moses took a $15 million deal over three years with the Baltimore Ravens, which is a steal for an above-average tackle.
Morgan Moses simply does not miss games. He’s stayed on the field for years and has played in an outside zone scheme. He’s as reliable as they get at any position and would have given the Denver Broncos more clarity along the offensive line.
The team signed Billy Turner to likely be the right tackle, but as we know, the position is up for grabs and is even more so up for grabs when you factor in Turner’s ability to play on the interior.
I think this makes the offensive line situation even more crowded than it needs to be. Signing Moses would have given the Broncos their two tackles for at least 2022, and would have allowed the staff to focus more on getting the interior sorted out.
