The Denver Broncos are going to be active in free agency, and there are a plethora of players they should consider signing for 2023 and beyond.

As we speak, cap casualties are being made across the NFL, so the free agent market will keep getting bigger and bigger. Since the Broncos do not have much draft capital, they figure to be active in free agency.

They'll look all across the free agent market to try and find players to improve the roster with a likely focus on the offensive side of the ball. Sean Payton also spent a decade and a half in the NFC, so he's sure to have a strong beat on those teams as well.

One free agent from each NFC team the Broncos should sign: NFC North
1. Chicago Bears - Riley Reiff, OL

The Broncos should look to veteran tackle Riley Reiff as a cheap free agent addition. He's in his mid-30s and has played and started at both left and right tackle in his career. If nothing else, Reiff can be a solid backup player, but he's also someone who can start when needed.

Denver does need to improve their offensive line, and Reiff can help with that.

2. Green Bay Packers - Jarran Reed, DL

The Broncos need to improve their defensive line, and Packers' free agent Jarran Reed would be a nice fit. He's played for three teams and has 27 career sacks and has registered at least 12 QB hits in each of the last three seasons.

He also spent a year with the Chiefs in 2021 and has not missed a game in three seasons. Reed would be a savvy addition.

3. Detroit Lions - DJ Chark, WR

DJ Chark might be one of the best athletes in the NFL at the wide receiver position. He's 6'4", 215 pounds, and has 4.3 speed. He's got a Pro Bowl and a 1,000-yard season to his credit. He did battle some injuries this year and does have some injury concerns, but with Tim Patrick's return to form unknown, I think a free agent WR addition would be smart.

4. Minnesota Vikings - Eric Kendricks, LB

I recently wrote about the Broncos and a potential fit with Eric Kendricks. He's got connections with George Paton and new Broncos ILB coach Greg Manusky.

He was drafted in 2015 while Paton was still in Minnesota. He's averaged over 100 tackles per season and has played in over 100 games in the NFL. With Josey Jewell having some injury concerns and Alex Singleton being a free agent, Kendricks makes a ton of sense.
