Default What one available free agent do you most want the Broncos to bring in?

Obviously excluding the franchise players.

Albert Haynesworth was purposely left off this list as he is not a NT and the Broncos would not have realistic interest in another UT who will become the highest paid defensive player in football while they try to convert to a 3-4.

Ron Fields (NT) a young player from SF that would be excellent add to this team as we move to 3-4

Colin Cole (NT) from Green Bay run stuffer that Bates brought into Green Bay for his defense that can play 5 technique

I hope to see us sign two starting safeties,ones that won't break the bank. Sanders and Bell perhaps.

Then Mike Wright at DE, Grady Jackson on a 1 year deal at NT and Gabe Watson to compete with him.

All five players could significantly help our defense next year, and none will break the bank.

I like Bart Scott. It probably doesn't address our most pressing need but I think he'd bring a leadership factor to the LB corps that we haven't had in awhile. Williams is the quiet warrior type.

Because I kept it to realistic FAs. We're not going to be interested in Lewis after re-upping DJ to play the WILB spot. Not to mention there'd be no way in hell Lewis would come here unless we heavily outbid the Jets and Cowboys.

Yes, he's a 3-4 DE that's well-though of amongst the NE fans I know.

It's pretty obvious that we can draft LB's to fill our needs, so the next priority is a big fat mofo NT. So, that's first.

Next is Safety.

Next is CB.

The Broncos need five or six defensive starters and they need help at every layer of their defense. The list could include nose tackle Grady Jackson and cornerback Ronald Bartell. The draft is also of major importance to Denver, so its scouting department will be keeping a keen eye on what's happening on the field in Indianapolis.

Canty has moved to the top of my list. I think he's the most dynamic DL left in FA, and we're desperate for experienced 3-4 DL. After Canty we need at least one guy with experience at NT. A couple have been mentioned, and I would be happy with any of them. Ron Fields is probably the best, and although not a world beater he'll give us a legitimate player at a position where we currently have no one.

The entire DL needs to be rebuilt, and we need to get at least a couple of guys that can come in and hit the ground running in the new scheme.

I also like the idea of Wright and Sanders. Two players who know the McDaniels/Pats system and can help implement the mentality as well as the system. Wright is a high motor guy who has played both DE and NT in New England. Sanders knows the system, is young, cheap, and an upgrade to anyone on the roster at S right now.
