The Broncos are expected to have a busy Wednesday, meeting with three players while drawing closer to signing RB Rashard Mendenhall and landing DT Terrance Knighton.

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.

    Let’s see…Shefter’s scoops are good as gold, Lombardi is usually way off base, and Klis…Klis just makes stuff up, not sure if he even knows anybody in the Broncos organization…

    I just don’t see Denver being able to afford Cromartie. I don’t know much about Knighton or Bradley but Knighton sounds like he would be a good pickup. We definately have a need there but I can see Denver drafting a DT in the first round. Looking at Bradley’s stats, I hope we are just signing him to be a backup. Being from the east coast I don’t get to watch many west coast game so I really don’t know much about him.

    I’m still holding out hope that Denver will go after Dansby. He would fill the biggest hole on Defense. In the last two year only two AFC teams have been able to hold make the Patriots to average under 30 points a game. One is Pitt the other is Miami. Dansby is a big reason why Miami has been able to do it!
