Being thankful this free agency period

The Broncos aren’t fishing for lower tier QBs which has Broncos Country sighing in relief

We’re filling holes, stealing away Dallas Cowboys, and reloading for our next season.

And I can’t be happier that we’re not wallowing in the mire of 2nd and 3rd tier NFL QBs wondering if we have any hope at a winning season.

I’m not saying the Broncos are a shoo-in for the playoffs next season. They have young, new coaches and are a young team needing to use this season to solidify their play on both sides of the ball.

But I’m not researching Mitch Trubisky, Teddy Bridgewater, or Tyrod Taylor.

Even with the Broncos signing one of the highest risk players in the NFL as far as injury/suspensions, I’m still walking around with a smile on my face about what next season will look like for us.

We filled all the major holes I’ve been looking at. The Broncos don’t have a ton of cap space left considering signing draft picks, but they do have some room given that the Gregory contract has a pretty small hit for this season.

How are you feeling about our situation after yesterday’s moves? What roles would you like to see signed today?
