Report: Broncos targeting Dwight Freeney to replace Dumervil

New, comments

With Elvis Dumervil signed, sealed and delivered to the Baltimore Ravens, free agent defensive end Dwight Freeney is the Broncos' first choice to replace him, according to reports.

Elvis Dumervil has left the building, but the Broncos already have his replacement in mind -- former Indianapolis Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney.

The Broncos visited with both Freeney and free agent defensive end John Abraham last Thursday.

I compared the core stats of Dumervil, Freeney, and Abraham at BroncoTalk last week. Freeney, 33, had 13.5 sacks over the last two seasons. Abraham, who will turn 35 soon, had 19.5 in that time span. I then published a poll asking readers who they preferred. Freeney fell third -- by far.

What do you guys think? Should the Broncos be going after Freeney, Abraham, or pursue some other course of action? Hit the poll below.
