Good afternoon, Broncos fans!
Today is a pivotal day in Broncos Country. Beginning at 4 PM EST, NFL Free Agency kicks off. Thus, an avalanche of signings will start to roll down the landscape of the league. It's always a fun time to see new faces in new places and with the Denver Broncos apparent interest in Peyton Manning, our attention should be at an all time high.
Who will be a part of the Denver Broncos? How does it affect our current roster? How much cap room will be left after each signing? These questions and many more will be answered in the weeks ahead.
This open thread will be used today to report any free agency news, as it happens. Think of it as a live-blog, if you will. As stories unfold, a comment will be posted with a link to the story source. This will allow everyone to stay on the same page throughout the day as a flurry of free agent signings occur.
Keep it locked on MHR throughout the day as free agency goes into full swing.
