The Denver Broncos were reported to be the front runners to land free agent running back Reggie Bush earlier today, but things have cooled down since then.

Bush is now headed to visit with Detroit, seemingly making the Lions the favorite to land the popular free agent.  Denver, meanwhile, has other options.

The team will bring in Rashard Mendenhall for a visit, showing continued interest in the former Steeler.  The Broncos will also look at former Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Two players that have not reportedly drawn interest from the Broncos yet but figure to are Rams running back Steven Jackson and former Dolphins middle linebacker Karlos Dansby.  Miami made waves when they signed Dannell Ellerbe and released Dansby, who would be a fit in Denver’s 4-3 defense.

Jackson is a powerful back that would be a more exciting addition to Denver’s backfield than Mendenhall.  But as of now, Mendenhall seems a more likely candidate to land with the team as a low priced, low-risk, high-reward free agent.

    I am drooling over Dansby. I know he is getting a little long in the tooth, but I thk he is exactly what we need right now. Hopefully we can try to pick him up for a decent price.

    Would love to see Dansby on Denver. They need a MLB would can cover a TE or slot receiver.

    Sign Jackson and Dansby!! Mendenhall is too much of a risk and Denver has a small Window to win now…

    Can’t agree more about Mendenhall. Not sure they can afford both Jackson and Dansby. Signing Vasquez took up a lot of cash. Dansby would be my choice. I think They could get him for 3 to 4 mil a year. Anything more would be too much. RB Denver can get in the draft.

    I like Mendenhall, always have. His problem is he cant stay on the field long enough to get a good yard per play average. Hmmmm sound like this other dude that we already have. But he is big and strong and that would be nice. I’ve been keeping my fingers crossed for SJ, I’d love for him to be a Bronco, even though he has dredds…lmo.

    Rodgers-Cromartie while not spectacular would be a good one to get, he would help out. Not a flashy signing but not a bad one either.
