What the Denver Broncos now do at middle linebacker is one of the key questions this offseason.

With the news the Broncos will not exercise the contract option for Brandon Marshall, let the speculation begin on who will fill that spot.

On Friday’s 1st & 10 @ 10 on Orange and Blue, Mike Klis joined the guys to talk about Marshall and what he meant to the team, but also that key question. As Klis noted, one of the key cogs of a Vic Fangio defense is an elite middle linebacker. Thus, if C.J. Mosley hits the open market and isn’t tagged, Klis said he will certainly be a target.

The other way Denver could fill that middle linebacker spot is through the NFL Draft and Devin White (if he falls to No. 10). Whatever John Elway and the Broncos do at middle linebacker it will fun and interesting.
