Entering training camp, Broncos have roster room for three more players

There may be a signing—or two, or three—on the horizon for the Broncos.

Earlier this week, the Denver Post's Mike Klis reported that 24-year old safety Eric Hagg is planning to retire from the NFL. Kyle mentioned the news via a FanShot on Monday.

Klis went on to note that Hagg's retirement leaves Denver with 88 players on their roster. During training camp, teams are permitted to have a maximum of 90 players on their rosters.

Update: Following tight end Joel Dreessen's release on Tuesday, Denver now has 87 players on their roster.

This means Denver has two three available roster spots with training camp just one day away. There have been no reports of the Broncos making a move to fill their roster before camp, but it wouldn't be surprising to see a transaction or two over the next few days.

One potential position to be addressed? Running back.

Denver has a youthful backfield going into camp, which is a nice way of saying Denver has an inexperienced backfield. If the Broncos are looking to add a veteran presence to the backfield, Bernard Scott, Ronnie Brown, and Willis McGahee are among the top free agent options.

If you had two roster spots to fill for camp, what two positions would you sign? Let us know in the comments below.
