Do you think this playoff run with Tebow will attract free agents this off season? I am pumped to see who we can bring in. Does anybody have a list of free agents for the upcoming off season?

I want to bring in a talented vet at safety, I don't think Dawkins has much left.

Keep building through the draft and get younger. We need to develop Carter and Moore right now but I would not be against renting a vet safety. Unfortunately my dream of Adrain Wilson one day being a Bronco will never happen. Hes getting old and resigned in Ariz last yr so he is locked up.

Seriously, I think there is a lot of excitement being generated in Denver by this team. Colorado is a great place to live. I think there will be players who want to go to a contender who would like to get on board on the bottom floor. This is just the beginning. IMO, a lot of players will be attracted to this team.

Just wondering though outside of Sproles has any offensive player been a better FA pickup then Mcgahee? And what about the trade for Bunkley? Isn't that one of the better trades this yr? Really its amazing Elway scored in FA, scored in a trade, and scored in the draft. Then he gets coaches in here who get more out of players then the previous regime did. Seriously how he isn't in the running for executive of the yr is beyond me. Broncos were the 2nd worst team in the league last yr.

Everytime I go to Denver I think to myself if I had to leave Calif I could live here. I don't ski anymore but still love being in the mountains, like to fish, but also like a big city to have a good time in. Denver gives you all that.

Really i always tell my cousins who still live in Denver that Calif just adds the beach and better weather. Still though we have mountains we can go ski in, fish in, hike in etc etc. Nothing like Denver but still pretty awesome. We have med pot, you have med pot lol!

I'm still looking forward to Syd'quan's return to the team next year. I think he's going to be the real deal. i watched him at Cal. He is quick, constantly aggressive and an excellent tackler. At worst, he'll give us a strong nickle package.

We need to draft Defensive guys in the high rounds, WRs and RB's in the middle rounds, and read-option QB's in the later rounds.

I think Defensive FA's will find Denver attractive thanks to Fox. And RB's will, too. WR's won't, so we need to draft receivers.

The Broncos need to do well in both the draft and free agency if they want to be real contenders soon. If previous regimes had drafted well, especially on the defensive side of the ball, then pretty just using the draft could work. But there are too many holes on this team in which the draft alone won't fix unless ready to wait 3-4 years for a true contending team. Trading down as I have suggested would help in acquiring more picks in the draft though.

I wouldn't mind seeing some FA, but the list just seems pretty thin from what I have seen. Going through it, crossing off the ones you figure will resign with their teams, and you aren't left with much.

The big guard in NO is a thought. With Brees and Colston both FA they may not be able to tag him to limit his movement. I would love a move for someone like that. Carl Nicks is his name. The Saints gave the other guard a huge deal, have other FA, so he may be let go. He's dominant and paired with a healthy Kuper could really be something. Also love Ben Grubbs OG from the Ravens. With Kuper hurt, the other guards pretty avg, dont be surprised if we dipped into the big guard FA sweepstakes.

Then I would look at FA corners. Grimes from Atl, Carr from KC, maybe trufant if hes not too pricey as a number 2. Not saying let Goodman go, but we need some more corners.

But the Packers and Steelers for the most part, have had very good drafts for a decade, so they don't have to sign big money players with good talent waiting to take over for older players or those that leave for big money someplace else. This is why you fan not go so long and have poor drafts, especially on one side of the ball like the Broncos have had.

Broncos have gotten better though, and Bowlen didn't spend a ton the last couple yrs. I could see them making a few moves. Besides the notion Bowlen went cheap sort of a joke because you don't spend money for the sake of spending it. They did resign guys like Bailey and Kuper. If they were just cashing in they would have at least let Bailey go.

I have a feeling Broncos will be a hotter destination this offseason.

i agree. a players coach, a franchise on the upswing, a pretty decent young core to build around, and a team with money to spend.

WR and TE might be a little leery of coming to Denver, but enough money would change that thought.

i would much rather in FA bring in some OL depth and competition for a couple spots along the OL, rotational DL, LB depth and veteran Safety or 2 because i believe Dawkins is done.

i want us to avoid FA RBs, we got lucky this year, but most RBs allowed to hit the market tend to be about to have the wheels fall off.

With the people in the front office now, they need to keep building through the draft.

Offensively, sure but I don't see hot shot wide receivers coming here looking for action besides blocking. I think character players that looked team first are out there. Too bad McCaffrey an Rod Smith are retired. As for defense, I think it is very attractive especially if our DC sticks around.

Yep.

These players on other teams notice that the Denver Broncos dominate NFL coverage these days. More coverage = more exposure for other players too. When 1/3 of the country tunes in to your playoff game and you step up and make a play, you get into the highlights too.

Denver is getting a rep as a good destination for RB's and defensive players, which ironically is what the team needs most.

As for WR's, the team will always be able to fill out the roster with solid workhorse WR types, which will fit the offense just fine.

$$ Money will bring in free agents, I believe the Broncos are going to be in pretty good cap space this up coming off season. I doubt they will spend big on a big name, but they will bring in a few.

Don't forget, when a WR here makes a couple plays, he can have 200+ yards against the #1 pass D in the league :)

No reason not to want to be catching balls here.

I dont see us going for a top WR though unless it's a dependable mid-low cost vet as Thomas/Decker most likely have the 1 and 2 WR slots nailed down for the forseeable future.

Jeff Saturday is a believer. So are Polamalu (wouldn't he fix some of our secondary issues and replace Dawk?), Richard Seymour, Greg Jennings, Peyton Hillis, etc, etc.

Nah, I think Chris Harris has looked much better then Thompson did and I honestly think the nickle CB is his to lose. I'm hoping next season he can learn a little better man technique and challenge for Hill's position. He already is a great zone CB and tackles well and has a nose for the ball.


At this point - I would like Denver to draft a MLB but if we can't find a great one with a high pick, I'd love to bring in a total stud FA MLB. This is a position of need in a big way people. You put a top 10 MLB on this defense, especially one that knows how to blitz up the middle, that will be huge. You think it wouldn't be that complicated but watch some games on Sunday and watch when LB's blitz up the middle, just how many of them are so bad at it, running into their own guy or timing it all wrong, whatever. Then when you watch some of them that know how to do it, it's a pure joy to watch. That's what we need. That stud MLB who won't over pursue and take himself out of a play, like Mays does all the time, one who can blitz up the middle when Doom/Von collapse the outside, and a guy that is smart enough to find that back scooting out of the backfield for the dump off or screen.

The Falcons have a few free agents they'll have to pay handsomely to keep around that could benefit the Broncos. John Abraham, Curtis Lofton, and Brent Grimes are all free agents. Abraham obviously doesn't fit what you need, but I have a feeling one of Lofton and Grimes won't be resigned. Either one would fit perfectly.

why overpay for a FA that is likely at the end of his days? we got lucky with McGahee, but we have all seen him hitting that wall nearing the end of the season.

we'd be better off drafting a guy like Chris Polk in the 2nd or a bigger bruiser in the middle rounds someone like Marc Tyler out of USC in the 5th would be a good pickup. why pay another guy an average of 3 million a season when we can get a late round pick to do the same job of splitting carries and pay him 500,000 a season

actually, there are a lot of vets who come to Denver as a FA and even after being traded or released continue to make their homes in colorado.

i mean sure for the young guys wanting bright lights and all the glamour, than Denver isn't the place for them, but the veteran guys who are mature, have grown up, family guys, those types love colorado.

and +1 on Chris Polk, love his style of running.

The broncos need to match Tebow with a very very fast WR so teams have to keep the safeties back. One of Tebow's strengths is the same as Big Ben's, extending the play and throwing deep. Pittsburgh has teamed Ben with fast receivers and the broncos should consider the same with Tebow.

Honestly how dumb is this comment? The Christian factor will have nothing to do with who the Broncos get in free agency. Itíll have everything to do with money. Money talks, not even a Satan worshipper would mind coming to Denver if the price was right. The NFL game is big business and the players are in the business of making money Christianity is the least of their concerns.

I hadn't seen your comment until now. Wow! We agree on something.

Yes, all the homies gangtas with tattoos at Alabama and LSU want to live in Denver so they can ski up in Vail and hike all the mountain trails in the summer. Colorado might be a great place to live for the average white guy but not for the average NFL or NBA player.

Actually, I'm not far from Aspen, you'd be surprised who shows up on the slopes.

The broncos need to match Tebow with a very very fast WR so teams have to keep the safeties back. One of Tebow's strengths is the same as Big Ben's, extending the play and throwing deep. Pittsburgh has teamed Ben with fast receivers and the broncos should consider the same with Tebow.

I think, effectively, Tebow is so similar to Ben. Now, they go about getting it done differently, but there are many similarities in what actually gets done.

Not to sure why tebows faith got the attention it did , I have seen Players from both teams kneel and pray over injured players mostly , but some after game prayer as well ..
In a way it is a good thing , Denver is getting plenty of media attention , that will attract alot of players

I'll bet more NFL and NBA superstars show up at the nightclubs in NYC, Atlanta. Miami and Chicago than on the ski slopes in Aspen....... they are a different kind of powderaddict.

It seems to me high profile signings end up in busts more often than not, or at least vastly overpaying for the talent. Some decent FA and draft draft draft for improvements and depth.

Honestly how dumb is this comment? The Christian factor will have nothing to do with who the Broncos get in free agency. Itíll have everything to do with money. Money talks, not even a Satan worshipper would mind coming to Denver if the price was right. The NFL game is big business and the players are in the business of making money Christianity is the least of their concerns.

Dumb? Not possible for the money being equal and other factors carry weight? Also, TT is a Christian leader, other Christians like that. Anyway, I agree it's not a top factor, but one of many.

Bush would be the perfect back to incorporate into the plans as they continue to develop this offense.

Willis/Bush 1A/1B

Draft a late round speed back

Moreno as a poor man's Kevin Faulk type.

Done.

Why would they?

You play in the AFC Worst and have a QB who can't throw the football and you've been a joke since Elway left.

Aint nobody going to Denver unless they have to, i think of you like Buffalo West.

Its too bad that Reggie White and Barry Sanders are long-since retired. ;D

Heck, you know that Deion Sanders would be all over this scene too.

Jeff Saturday is a believer. So are Polamalu (wouldn't he fix some of our secondary issues and replace Dawk?), Richard Seymour, Greg Jennings, Peyton Hillis, etc, etc.

Let the spirit lead...them to Denver. ;)

Jeremy Shockey is a hard-core Oklahoma good ol' boy conservative. I could see him wanting to play with Teebs.

Phil Rivers could back Tim up. ROFL!

why would the Broncos sign quality free agents or draft quality players...weren't EFX trying to sabotage Tebow? At least that is what I've heard many many times...

Yeah I was going to add something about that. But with the maturation of Thomas and Decker, I'm not too concerned.

I think Fox goes more to undersized TE's as WR's anyway. Blocking and jump balls.

I think we sometimes forget that most young players take time to develop into valuable starters. We have LBs, safeties and TEs just finishing their first year (and the TE was a known project). We may not be as bad in those spots as we worry. CB, RB, WR (for depth at a min) and DT feel like our biggest soft spots.

I would rather get a RB in the draft (Lamar Miller in round 2) and Ty Hilton in the 5th round as Desean Jackson type WR.

See our OL last year vs this (still not perfect obviously).

Also Houshyama it's official Colorado is a waffleless death trap for black people.

I didn't buy the idea no one would sign here when we were terrible and I don't buy the idea more will sign here because we made the playoffs.

This is a business and whether we pay for the available free agents will be the primary cause for whether we sign any free agents or not.
