John Elway and the Broncos orchestrated a very successful free-agent period last March with the crown jewel being the acquisition of veteran quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning led Denver to a 13-3 season with the No. 1 seed in the AFC heading into the playoffs.
Both sides of the ball showed vast improvement from the previous season and it appeared the Broncos were on a path to the Super Bowl in New Orleans. However, Denver picked a really bad time to collectively have a bad game.
With the NFL combine in the books, it is now time to officially look to build the Broncos roster by filling in some holes and deficiencies from last year's squad. Elway has shown that he is smart when it comes to free agency and Bronco fans hope that trend continues in the 2013 season.
Here is a look at some potential moves the Broncos should avoid during the free-agent period, as they could negatively affect Denver moving forward.
