NFL teams will be free to begin singing unrestricted free agents on Tuesday, March 13th starting at 4 (p.m.).  The Denver Broncos may be signing several players during the free agency period, including a safety.

The Denver Post’s Mike Klis reports that the team is looking for a thumper, and suggests former Patriots’ safety Brandon Meriweather as a possible free agent prospect for Denver.  Two other safeties that Klis suggested were San Francisco’s Dashon Goldson and Jacksonville’s Dwight Lowery.

Meanwhile, defensive tackle remains one of the Broncos’ biggest needs.  Like last off-season, Denver may bring in several tackles to compete in training camp.  ESPN‘s Bill Williamson says the word at the combine was that Cincinnati free-agent Jonathan Fanene could fit in with the Broncos.

A versatile 4-3 defensive lineman, Fanene can play both defensive end and defensive tackle.  Last season with the Bengals, Fanene recorded 24 tackles and 6.5 sacks.

What would you think of either of these players coming to Denver?  View five defensive free agents I think Denver should target right here.

    Initial thought is “stay clear of anyone, and I do mean anyone that New England doesn’t re-sign.” I don’t care if they let Tom Brady go, I stay clear of him, because way more often than not, whoever they let go does pretty much nothing with whoever they sign with next.

    As for the other guys, Goldson would be fantastic. We can always use playmakers back there, especially vets, seeing we had 2/3 rookies starting for us last year.

    Fanene would be good if Del Rio wanted him. If he does, it’ll say a lot about Fanene, because unless Del Rio really really thought highly of him, there wouldn’t be a need to bring him in here.

    Hearing on the Seattle radio stations (John Clayton) that the Broncos will be one of 2-3 teams that will go hot and heavy after Mario Williams.  Love that move.

    I know this post is talking about D but I really think Denver should go after Hines Ward. There is no better blocking WR in the game. With Tebow as our QB this seems to be the primary role of our WR’s. Oh yeah, he can also catch the ball!
