Denver Broncos have zero room for error in 2023 offseason
The 2023 offseason for the Denver Broncos is going to be one of the most important ones in the history of the team, so there is no room for error. Has there ever been a perfect offseason in the NFL? Probably not, but there are a plethora of instances of teams having themselves a strong offseason period.
Both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Chargers both appeared to have stellar offseasons. It’s paying off for the Jaguars, and the Pe look to be gaining some steam. Other times, teams have total disasters of offseasons. Perhaps they make the wrong coaching hire, invest too little or too much in free agency, or something else.
The Broncos’ 2022 offseason appeared to be strong, but it’s now turned into a disaster. For many reasons, the 2023 offseason for Denver is one where they have zero room for error. The organization simply cannot mess this one up.
I’m fairly confident that the team will end up having a strong offseason. At the end of it, perhaps we’ll wish Player A was signed instead of Player B, but I do think the team ends up doing well. My main argument for thinking this is that the team’s mistakes were so obvious in 2022 and went so poorly that I almost find it difficult to believe that a team of professional executives would make the same mistakes again.
It’s clear that the next head coach will likely hire or be forced to bring in a more experienced and appropriate staff, especially on offense. It’s also clear that certain position groups simply need an infusion of talent in them.
The Broncos also have the ability to bring their 2023 cap space total up near $50 million with a series of cuts and restructures. There are quality head coaching candidates that check every box most of us think they’d be looking for in a head coach, and the free agency market is strong like it typically is.
The team is going to have to take calculated risks in 2023. The offseason will consist of trying to revive the offseason and get the most out of Russell Wilson, no matter if Greg Penner and George Paton said otherwise.

If the team cannot put something together in 2023, jobs will be lost, significant players will have their contracts torn up, and the franchise may bottom out even further.
