In my opinion, the Broncos don't seem very interested in signing DRC. Regardless of them saying he is the "highest priority", I just don't feel there's much interest. I feel the fact he contemplated retirement is scaring the broncos, and lots of teams, away. For all we know, he can still be thinking about retirement. Sam Shields is an underrated free agent. I think he will go for about the same if not less than DRC. He is younger, and just as talented. He shut down AJ green and Josh Gordon last year. I feel like signing him, if we can't come to terms with DRC and then signing Michael Johnson (another underrated player) we will be in good shape. Michael johnson is fantastic against the run (which this coaching staff loves) and he led the league in QB hurries last year. In my opinion he can flourish in our defensive scheme, and JDR seems to be able to get the most out of free agents. We still have a huge hole at CB regardless so maybe we can sign another guy (derek cox) and draft a couple in the drafts first 3 rounds. Add shaun phillips back to the roster and out D-line looks scary. DRC was great last year, he just isn't the ball hawk i think Sam Shields can be. Lets get one of them signed though.
