Austin Collie. Dwight Freeney. Darrelle Revis. Wes Welker. Charles Woodson.
Take your pick. Or not. Whatever.
It’s that time of year: Would [insert name of free agent here] be a good fit for [insert your NFL team of choice here]?
For the record, ESPN’s Jerry Rice likes Revis in Denver:
Bleacher Report calls Welker the “final Super Bowl piece,” and Rant Sports believes Denver is the “ideal location” for Freeney. But it seems for every argument for, there’s an equally compelling argument against.
As we enter free agency, we can safely assume two things:
- Denver will look at, and even sign, at least one free agent—likely more.
- Financially, there’s simply no way the Broncos can sign all of the aforementioned players.
For what it’s worth, I’m not sure even if Collie should still be playing, given his history of concussions, but if Denver can get him on the cheap, then it’s worth considering. As for Freeney, I really don’t see him signing with Denver, though I can’t exactly pinpoint a reason. I don’t dislike Revis, but I don’t want him in Denver—or anywhere else in the AFC West.
That leaves Welker and Woodson, the two players I would want to see in Broncos orange next season, though I know it’s highly unlikely Denver lands both. Still, one can dream, right?
