Horse Tracks: Broncos 2023 additions to cleanse 2022 losing ways

There’s going to be no more of that mess up in here.

Change has finally come to the Denver Broncos roster. The absolute disaster that was the 2022 Broncos are now bursting with new additions, promising to change the woeful ways of football in Denver.

In March, free agency brought 12-players in from other teams and returned Alex Singleton after a standout year. 10-players with expiring contracts were shown the door. When you consider a 53-person roster and a shift of 23 people either coming or going, free agency alone has all the potential to remake this Denver Broncos squad.

But wait... There’s more...

Over the weekend, the Broncos drafted 5-players and traded for TE Adam Trautman from the Saints in the 2023 Draft. It’s the infusion of youth and speed that’s going to be the hallmark of these newcomers to the Mile High City. Most importantly, the Broncos are now out from under the draft obligations shackled to them in the 2022 Russell Wilson trade.

But wait... There’s still more...

According to the MHR Undrafted Free Agent Tracker, the Broncos are poised to bring in an additional 17-players into camp and have invited 2 more to rookie camp. Remember, the Denver Broncos consistently feature undrafted free agents on their roster come regular season kickoff.

Folks, there are 37 new faces (Alex Singleton is a returning face) in the Broncos locker room now. Talent and skill have been stockpiled in an attempt to weed out the woeful losing ways that have plagued this franchise for the longest period in my lifetime. The turnaround may not be instant, but every opportunity exists to bring this team success. Now let’s see who makes it and who is shown the door. The moves made in the coming months will be the most telling about where the Denver Broncos are headed. So far, I like what I am seeing.
