The Denver Broncos had a busy day on Wednesday, ultimately signing four free agents.

The team started by landing All-Pro receiver Wes Welker to a two-year, $12-million deal.  The signing sent shock waves across the NFL.

Next came the signing of linebacker Stewart Bradley to a one-year deal.  Bradley is expected to compete for the starting MLB gig in Denver.

Another defender, defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, agreed to a two-year deal.  Knighton figures to become a starter after being reunited with Jack Del Rio.

The team finished their busy day (presumably finished, anyway, it’s only 9:30 p.m. MT), by signing cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to a two-year deal.

Denver will hold multiple press conferences tomorrow at Dove Valley to introduce Welker, Knighton and Rodgers-Cromartie.  Welker’s press conference will be streamed on and we will provide coverage on Facebook and Twitter.

Yesterday, the team locked up defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson for two years and brought in Chargers guard Louis Vasquez with a four-year deal.

Meanwhile, Jason Hunter has left Denver and signed with the Raiders and Elvis Dumervil’s contract situation remains unresolved.  There are several candidates on the market if the team chooses to release Dumervil.

    What does our cap look like? Did Elvis wait too long, and now the money is gone?

  • Doom92

    I think it was a good day for us. I’m still holding out hope that Doom dislodges his head and realizes what he will miss out on. With the numbers that two other DE’s signed at he wont even get 10mil now. So now he’ll maybe match the 8mil and play for Jacksonville (or something close to that horrible) when he could stay here.

    Something that I thought of earlier today that I had not factored in was his basically free year when he had the torn biceps (sure they should have taken care of him), the Broncos treated him with big respect and paid him a bunch of money to recover, and hopefully, be back to normal. Its time to be the team guy and pay a little back and not kicking and screaming either.
