WR Kerry Colbert, S Sammy Knight; First Official Visitors To Dove Valley

The DP is reporting that the Broncos welcomed their first two visitors of the Free Agency period when the team hosted former Carolina Panthers WR Kerry Colbert, as well as former Jaguars safety Sammy Knight --

Colbert had 32 catches for Carolina last season. The USC product's best season was his rookie year in 2004 when he had 47 catches. With Javon Walker released, Denver is looking for a No. 2 receiver. Brandon Stokley will be the No. 3 receiver. The Broncos could use their No. 12 on a receiver such as Cal's DeSean Jackson.

Knight, 32, had 93 tackles and four interceptions for Jacksonville last year. Denver is looking starting safeties and he'd fit in. The Broncos have a need for safeties with John Lynch potentially on his way out of town, with free agent Nick Ferguson likely not returning and with restricted fee agent Hamza Abdullah potentially getting interest elsewhere.

While I agree there is a need for a wideout, there is no way the Broncos pick DeSean Jackson at #12.
