Default Adam Schefter reporting that the Broncos...

still have $15 million in cap space. But don't expect the Broncos to do anymore 'big' moves.

So to me this means the Broncos may only try to sign players 2nd tier players.. not that there are anymore 'big' name free agents.

Other than Manning, have they really made any big moves?

We've made enough "big moves" except for a DT and I don't understand why we didn't get Bunkley. He was playing for a contract last season, but still.

I guess they like who they have right now. The remaining Bronco UFA's I believe are only Marcus Thomas, Jason Hunter, Russ Hochstein, Dawkins, Haggan.

They have CJ Davis, Ramirez as interior OL depth. Jeremy Jarmon, Jeremy Beal for DE depth (but Jarmon is listed as a DT). OLB seems a little thin if they're not bringing Haggan back.

I see these guys on the roster:
59 Iwuh, Brian LB 6-0 239 28 6 Colorado
Obiozor, Cyril LB 6-4 249 25 3 Texas A&M
93 Siliga, Sealver DT 6-2 307 22 R Utah

Maybe they're gonna roll with this roster unless they get bargain basement deals.

And of course I'm sure they have high hopes that at least 5 of the draft picks will stick on the roster.

Aside from signing the biggest free agent in the history of free agency, have the Broncos done anything significant in free agency?

Broncos are announcing (per a facebook post) they have come to an agreement with Jason Hunter.

I think we'll be fine. We were about this bad off on DTs last year at this time but we ended up with quite a few grabs in the summer through trades and what not. I expect we'll trade for someone like Bunkley (who knows who will be available in a few months), and drafting will center on the middle linebacker, middle of the defensive line type of players.

I'm really excited about the direction our team is headed in.

Who knows? Raheem Moore might be good this year too, and we drafted that MLB last year, Irving, right? Sophomore year may prove something for him too.

Then their depth is pretty much set at DE for the time being. OLB still seems a little thin, maybe they move Irving to OLB, they still have Mohamed at MLB behind Mays.

Of course, there can still be a lot of changes in the next 5-6 months. Sure seems like DT will still get some attention.

They will also look for training camp cuts that fit this system. There are always some depth guys to pick up then, plus a couple of rookies that make impacts although it won't be as significant as Miller last year likely.

I think we will still pick up some depth when preseason cuts happen. This pre-draft free agency period has been a lot more active for all teams than it has in the past. There will still be some decent players being moved and cut during training camp and the preseason.

Ok for rotation guys provided the price is right. Still need a centerpiece at DT though.

25 pts a game is going to reduce that need quite a bit. Sure, it would be nice to have a ton of talent and money there but when we are up by 14 and ayers, doom, and von are rushing the passer it will be standing on the sideline. Peyton brings another theory to this team whether its right or wrong. Besides, I'm betting Fox and Jdr know more about this then us.

I thought we were out of cap room. I remember Klis saying we were out of cap room. Klis couldn't have been wrong, could he?

Okoye would be the **** on passing downs. Dude had over 20 QB pressures last year and is only 25. He'd thrive here. Was a teammate of Doom's in college too.
