-- END UPDATE --
The Denver Broncos do not have a ridiculous amount of needs heading into free agency as a team that is a lock to compete for a championship for the next few seasons.
Quarterback Peyton Manning may be able to further those chances at a Lombardi by persuading former teammate Dwight Freeney to join him in Denver.
According to the Denver Post, the Broncos are considering pursuing Freeney if Elvis Dumervil does not take a pay cut. Freeney is much cheaper and is looking to compete for a championship. It's a no-brainer.
Other than that, the Broncos can make a cheap signing that could pay off drastically by taking a gamble on running back Rashard Mendenhall. The team has shown interest (per Denver Post), and he is a perfect fit in the scheme and has loads of potential as an every-down starter when healthy.
Denver could also look to add some talent at cornerback, as referenced by its showing interest in Dunta Robinson (per Denver Post). The Broncos do not have to look much further than recently released Chris Gamble to upgrade.
