The Denver Broncos ease their way into free agency

New, comments

Free agency has started, but Denver isn’t exactly splashing around in the free agency pool.

Well, it wasn’t the start to free agency that many fans were hoping for.

John Elway and the Denver Broncos kicked off free agency by signing Graham Glasgow. It wasn’t the splashy signing many were hoping for, but the consensus seems to be that it was a good move. On the MHR Radio Podcast, Ian St. Clair and I examined the early free agency moves by the Broncos.

Sure, Denver was unwilling to match the Bengals offer for D.J. Reader. And yeah, signing Jeff Driskel isn’t exactly earth shattering, never mind the need for a backup QB, or that it signals the end of Joe Flacco’s time in Denver has arrived.

There are still a few possibilities for the Broncos to pursue. Obviously, Prince Amukamara is a name to keep your eye on. And Michael Pierce and Linval Joseph are both players that could work in place of D.J. Reader.

Along with all the free agency news, the big story of the day revolved around Tom Brady moving to Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers will move on from Jameis Winston, so who knows where he might end up.

Philip Rivers looks like he will be in Indianapolis in 2020, and Marcus Mariota will be backing up Derek Carr in Las Vegas. The QB landscape in the NFL has shifted, and as a Bronco fan, I would say we can all be pretty happy that Denver isn’t a part of all the shifting taking place.
