The success of an NFL team can be measured in inches, but what about when your team is giving up yards in the offseason? Through almost a week of free agency the Denver Broncos have signed two new players, re-signed eight of their own free agents and ERFAs, retained two of their own restricted free agents and restructured Von Miller’s contract to free up an additional $13MM. According to Spotrac.com, the Broncos currently have a tad over $25MM available in salary cap space... So, what gives? Massive talent gaps on Denver roster remain all over the offensive side of the ball and since the trade of Aqib Talib no one seems to be honest about the fact that Denver needs to spend as much on a starting cornerback as they just did at quarterback.... The team has sent rumors via media members that they are targeting offensive linemen or wide receivers, but still no one is agreeing to visits and no one is agreeing to be traded to the Broncos. Is this what losing feels like? Get in where you fit it, because study long, study wrong. Join your host Ian Henson and the greatest group of Broncos fans on the internet live, right now!

The success of an NFL team can be measured in inches, but what about when your team is giving up yards in the offseason?

Through almost a week of free agency the Denver Broncos have signed two new players, re-signed eight of their own free agents and ERFAs, retained two of their own RFAs and restructured Von Miller’s contract to free up an additional $13 million.

According to Spotrac.com, the Broncos currently have a tad over $25 million available in salary cap space, which doesn’t include the numbers from cornerback Tramaine Brock just yet.

So, what gives?

Massive talent gaps on Denver roster remain all over the offensive side of the ball and since the trade of Aqib Talib, no one seems to be honest about the fact that Denver needs to spend as much on a starting cornerback as they just did on their quarterback.

The team has sent rumors via media members that they are targeting offensive linemen or wide receivers, but still no one is agreeing to visits and no one is agreeing to be traded to the Broncos.
