The Broncos have made a flurry of moves in free agency, but they are not done yet.
Denver is close to the $123 million 2013 salary cap limit, but plan to create more space through the Elvis Dumervil situation and there are a host of other candidates to be released. For now, the team’s top priority is working out something with Dumervil.
But the team may not be done signing free agents just yet. According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, the team is considering Connor Barwin, Dwight Freeney and Richard Seymour as potential replacements for Dumervil and may still add more depth to the secondary.
That depth in the secondary could come via veteran Nnamdi Asomugha, who has reportedly drawn interest from Denver. If the team is looking for a safety rather than a cornerback, the draft may be their best option. A safety who figured to compete for a starting gig this summer is Quinton Carter, but he was recently arrested in Vegas and could face up to six years in prison on charges of cheating in a casino craps game.
The draft also appears to be where the team is planning to acquire a running back. On Thursday, Steven Jackson landed with the Atlanta Falcons, eliminating the chances of Denver landing a big-name back through free agency.
