Default 3/23 Rate the Broncos Free Agency So Far

A
B
C
D
F

As far as I'm concerned, we get a B+.

humongous manning signing, shipping a distraction out, signed tracy porter to a 1 year deal ensuring he'll be in top form during a contract year.

Just signed Joel Dreessen. Will be the '12 starter. Great blocker, 6 TD's last year. Woohoo!

Idiot cannonball signing the only thing stopping this from being an A

Losing Bunkley and signing Mays are questionable. I'd grade a solid B so far.

I voted "A" as this was a playoff team last year and adding Peyton Manning changed our Super Bowl odds from 75/1 to 8/1. Vegas knows their $h!t and we upgraded that much with the signing of 18.

I still wanna see more secondary help.

I voted B only because we still need help at DT because we lost Bunkley. And we resigned Mays?!?!

Very pleased with the Porter and Dreesen signings and obviously #18.

Really hope we can get Dallas Clark.

Even with Mays, landing the biggest free agent since probably Reggie White gives you a ton of credit. A from me.

Perspective people!!! They could have given Mays' wife $10M guaranteed and the offseason is still an A+. I was (and still am) a Tebow backer but landing PM on the cheap is historic. Porter is a pretty sweet cherry on top.

I went with a B because of the Bunkley/Mays situation. Without Manning it would be a D-

If Manning is even 80 percent of what he was pre-injury, I don't know how anyone could rate this less than an A. The team has also upgraded CB no.2, signed a TE who can double as a long-snapper that is better than any TE on the roster last year. My guess is they will also upgrade the center position by signing Saturday. Not a fan of signing Mays to a long-term contract, but if anything he's a serviceable thumper in short yardage situation. Hopefully Irving develops into a legit MLB. Now the team needs to focus on re-signing Marcus Thomas, hopefully Warren can rehab and play at a high level (but I'm not holding my breath.) and adding depth at DT. My hope is that they also go DT with 25.

A++++++. That's with the Manning signing alone. Add to that we've filled the cornerback and tight end holes with good quality signings, if they do nothing else I think this is the best free agency season in Broncos history.

I want McClain though.

Gave a B...would have given an A if not for the signing of Mays and so far no DT's signed. Now with the signing of Tamme...move to to a B+

I would've given an A. But signing Mays to that much money prevents a perfect FA so far.

B because of Manning.

One player does not make FA and automatic A. This is a TEAM sport and Manning can't do it all alone.

Had we not landed Manning we'd be a C- or a D+ for sure.

We have gaping holes on D and a dog **** center.

Our DT situation is pathetic. We resigned Mays over getting a young stud in McClain. Let Royal go to a rival and replaced him with a player who isn't as good as our third WR.

DT and MLB are the big ones though. Utter failure there so far.

A for Manning. B- for Porter, Adams and Dreesen. F for failing to get a DT, losing Bunkley. D+ for resiging Mays. I think thats like a C average.

B only because they overpaid mays, missed out on bunkley, and might let Marcus Thomas walk
