What do we do in FA now? I know it looks like Freeney if Doom is cut anything else?

If he is unlucky enough to not find a home soon, we should scoop him up, let him compete for the FS starting spot.

I know I'll get crucified for this, but I feel pretty happy at safety, at the moment. I don't care how big the play, you don't run a player out of town on one play. Raheem had improved so much from his first year to his second. I think he should at least be in the mix. Quinton Carter is another unknown. Has he been unlucky, or is this pretty much how is career is going to go? And I felt Mike Adams played competently.

We could easily improve on Mike Adams. Otherwise I agree with you. Quinton Carter was pretty good his rookie year as I recall.

Well he'll be in a contract year so to speak so I'm sure he'll give it his best every game.

SS is my only concern. Adams should be a super sub, not a starter.

And that is likely a major driving element to all this FA spending. The FO clearly saw a bunch of significant concerns that would force their hands in the draft if not resolved via free agency, and so as a result they've gone hard at the FA market to make that happen.

They're also getting some insanely good values on short term deals. Vasquez is now looking like the big money signing and he'll be barely 30 when his deal is up. Welker for 2/$12M and DRC for 1/$5M are crazy value signings.

What the signing do, is allow any player that Denver draft to grow into the position and not be force into the starting lineup. That being said I could see them taking a CB in the first and boosting the receiving corp in the mid rounds.

DRC is auditioning for a long term deal. Young guy with upside who under the right coaching can be our guy for a long time.

I was first in on DRC. What do I win? I at least get a mention in the footnotes, right? I'll tweet him and tell me he owes me a cut. Or at the very least a shout out for believing in him.

I like the DRC one year signing a lot, might have enjoyed it more if it was a 2 year along with some of our other ones but with what just happened with tracy Porter I can see their reasoning.

I agree that our safeties are in a pretty good spot where they are as long as quinton carter comes back healthy this year.

Even on the moore blown play against the Ravens it was as much the corner and other safeties fault as it was moores if I recall correctly. I think Moore came over from the opposite side of the field to cover on that play while Adams played short instead of taking the deep ball.

I MIght be in the minority but I think Moore and Carter give us two good young FS. SS with Adams is more of a concern for me. Bernard Pollard is available and I believe is a veteran that would be an upgrade over Adams.

plus DRC gives us that speedy athletic corner to cover the guys like Torrey Smith that Champ is beginning to have issues with. Champ is still a lockdown guy against all but the fastest WR in the league.

I want to see what Carter does this year as well. Hopefully he is healthy. Adams was solid he did not make many mistakes and was a pretty good tackler too, but he just isn't great in coverage. Carter is much fast than Adams and it looks like he has better ball skills.
