  • 2014 Broncos' Free Agents

    The time is never too soon to start thinking about the future, and while the Broncos have one of the best rosters in the NFL, the team could look a heck of a lot different when the 2014 season kicks off.

    The Broncos have a total of 22 free agents in 2014. UFA stands for Unrestricted Free Agent, which means that player will immediately hit the open market. RFA stands for Restricted free agent, which means the player is on the open market, but the Broncos have the opportunity to match any offer that player receives or they are entitled to draft pick compensation. ERFA stands for Exclusive Rights Free Agent, which almost always means that player isn’t going anywhere if the team doesn’t want him to.

    There are some BIG names on this list. Namely, Eric Decker, Chris Harris, Wesley Woodyard, Zane Beadles, Robert Ayers, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Trindon Holliday…the Broncos will find a way to make it all work out but there is a strong chance they will have to make some moves this offseason that the fans won’t be fans of.

    Mike Adams, Safety (UFA)
    Robert Ayers, Defensive End (UFA)
    Zane Beadles, Offensive Guard (UFA)
    Justin Boren, Offensive Lineman (ERFA)
    Stewart Bradley, Linebacker (UFA)
    Andre Caldwell, Wide Receiver (UFA)
    Tony Carter, Cornerback (RFA)
    Eric Decker, Wide Receiver (UFA)
    Chris Harris, Cornerback (RFA)
    Trindon Holliday, Return Specialist (ERFA)
    Duke Ihenacho, Safety (ERFA)
    Quintin Jammer, Cornerback (UFA)
    Winston Justice, Offensive Tackle (UFA)
    Dan Koppen, Center (UFA)
    Chris Kuper, Guard (UFA)
    Paris Lenon, Linebacker (UFA)
    Greg Orton, Wide Receiver (ERFA)
    Shaun Phillips, Defensive End (UFA)
    Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Cornerback (UFA)
    Mitch Unrein, Defensive Tackle (RFA)
    Steve Vallos, Center (UFA)
    Wesley Woodyard, Linebacker (UFA)

        Woodyard is one of the defensive leaders of the team. Out of all of our free agents, it might be most important to keep him. Ihenacho is our best safety, and should be our next biggest priority. Holliday's probably the best returner in the NFL so if the price isn't too high, hope we can keep him.

        I'd also like to keep Decker, DRC and Ayers... but dunno what the price will rise to. Imagine someone overpays on Decker

          Id like to see ayers brought back aswell. A two year deal similar to what woodyard just sign last year would be fine. Him paired with quentarus are young and dynamic at de. I still wouldnt be opposed to drafting a de early or even round one.

          Its time to move on from champ. Re sign drc and harris for the long haul. Kayvon looks like a keeper and we got tony carter with his role carved out. Next year our dbacks will be so young and talented its awsome ! Bring back duke and watch these guys grow together.

          We have some gens on this defense were gonna b good and opportunistic for a long time.

            Ayers will resign for pretty cheap. I think it's highly possible we part ways with Champ and his $14mil salary... and roll with DRC and a much reduced price - along with resigning a lot of others on the list.

            I hope we win it all this year, so Champ can go out in a blaze of glory (pun intended).

                I do wonder what we do with our tackle situation next year. Chris Clark has shown that he's a NFL caliber starting LT. Obviously, Clady already has shown he is one of the best LT in the NFL. Franklin does a very capable job at RT. Guess that's a good problem to have

                  Yes Denver does have maybe the three best tackles on a team.

                    Ayers has 4.5 sacks through 5 games which means he's on pace for 14.5 this year. If he keeps up the pace (which he won't when Von comes back) he's not coming back here because another team is going to pay him far more than we will. I think all he needs is 9-10 to get out of our pay range.

                        The only guy I wonder what it would cost to bring him back would be Holliday. Obviously he's a one trick pony and rarely touches the ball, but he's so deadly in that role.

                          IMO it goes

                          Woodyard

                          Chris Harris

                          Decker

                          DRC

                          Ayers

                          Beadles

                          Tony Carter

                          I didn't include ERFA simply because I think the team will not let go of Nacho and Holliday Road

                            Do you know what the salary is next year if they exercised the option?

                              You're probably right, but I'm not so sure. Ayers is finally getting some good coaching and sticking to a position more natural to his skillset. I think he's capable of being a pretty complete defensive end, albeit one whose strength is geared toward the run game.

                              With the emphasis put on the line over these past years it wouldn't surprise me to see Denver pay him like a starting DE. Dumervil's situation is not relevant, as his weakness against the run combined with his ridiculous salary to show him the door. Ayers is a more balanced combination of talents and won't cost anything near what Doom was making.
