According to CBS4‘s Vic Lombardi, the Broncos hope to sign “up to three” players today, with Mendenhall and Knighton figuring to be two of the reported three. Two other candidates are cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and linebacker Stewart Bradley, who are both visiting Dove Valley today.
Meanwhile, a few other players have hit Denver’s free agent radar. With Elvis Dumervil‘s contract dispute unresolved, the Broncos have shown continued interest in defensive end Dwight Freeney and may consider landing pass rusher Shaun Phillips, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
A third option to replace Dumervil would be Osi Umenyiora, who drew initial interest from Denver prior to the start of free agency. Phillips is an interesting candidate because he was an OLB in San Diego’s defense. Used mainly as a rusher, Phillips recorded 9.5 sacks last season and would probably transition to DE smoothly.
Finally, the team is also interested in Lions safety Louis Delmas, who is visiting the Rams today. According to the Denver Post‘s Mike Klis, the Broncos view safety as a position of need and will try to land Delmas.
