Default Who might the Broncos pickup tonight as free agency begins?

So much talk about our own RFAs, might we be active at 10pm MT tonight when free agency begins? Last year we picked up Dawkins, Hill, Goodman, Gaffney, Buck, Davis and Reid the first weekend. Could we be looking at something similar and what players might that group include? Or... will the CBA restrict the Broncos and other teams to where we see little-to-no movement?

I'd guess that it wont be long before Jarvis Green flies in for a visit, possibly Jamal and Kirk as well.

Bobby Williams may well be on our lists too.

Personally I don't think we will see much movement. If I had to guess, I think we'd bring in Jarvis Green or someone like that. I hope to God not.

I think free agency will be pretty normal, there will be a few big signings early, and a few "targeted" players signed to smaller deals.

The vast majority of free agency activity will happen a week or two once people see how the market is behaving. I doubt there will be any activity with restricted free agents early on since there is no haste, most of these guys are not going to sign their tenders any time soon.

Players I imagine are going to be signed very quick:

Peppers, Fujita and Dansby - none of those signed by Denver.

I would imagine if we sign someone it would be someone like Jarvis Green or Dwan Edwards.

I would love Edwards here. One of the most underrated 3-4 run defenders in the league. The majority of Raven fans I know would rather see Pryce disappear and Edwards start in B'more.

No movement on the restricted side, but I sure would love to see big Jamal sign here tonight.

Dwan Edwards, Stephen Neal, Bobbie Williams, Jarvis Green, and Ben Watson are all guys that I would not be surprised if we went after. Certainly not saying we get all or even multiple, but those are the names I have had down as possibilities. Getting Edwards, J. Williams and either Neal or B. Williams would be swell


Has Marcus Spears been tendered or will he be a free agent?

Also, if he was willing to take a small contract and work in a rotation, I would not mind giving Westbrook a shot. I know the concussions and injury history raise red flags, but I like his game when he is in the lineup.

Bobby Williams, Kevin Mawae, Jarvis Green are three I think they will go after. Williams and Mawae are older but give the Oline stability until Olsen and whoever they draft for center can mature.

Peppers and Dumervil rushing off the edges would be insane. Neither can really cover, but still insane. But yeah, definitely just a dream

We simply can not afford to not bring in some help at DE, it's easily the weakest position on our team.

Vonnie Holliday played decently last year I thought, pretty much everyone else was useless for the most part.

The chances of drafting a DE who is ready to start Day 1 are practically nil, so we absolutely must upgrade the spot through FA.

Hopefully we bring Holliday back and sign someone else on top of that. Dwan Edwards would be very nice, even his teammate Justin Bannon would be a significant upgrade over the likes of Kenny Peterson.

Jamal would be an awesome stop-gap for the next year or so till we get our NT OTF

Add another OG to my wish list. Max Jean-Gilles just got a draft pick (4th rd tender) more suited to the power run game.

I would rather them go after a vet C and draft a LG.

I dont see anyone of value out there unless it's via trade. The only 2 decent RFA's in Spitz and Spencer got 2nd and 1st rd tenders respectively. I think we have to draft our OC this year.

You don't like Mawae as a stop-gap?
