Denver Broncos Free-Agency Tracker: Updated Signings, Rumors and Grades

The Broncos need to surround Peyton Manning with as much talent as possible.

For a team like the Denver Broncos, free agency is a golden opportunity to add that missing ingredient. Starting at 4 p.m. ET on March 12, the Broncos will have the opportunity to add to their Super Bowl-caliber team by signing these free agents.

While the draft is also a good place to add talent, free agency is a good place to shop when the teams is looking to win now. If the Broncos are going to maintain their spot atop the AFC, they will need to make sure they continue to add to their roster with known commodities.

The Broncos will also probably be challenged more by the AFC West in 2013. The Chiefs should be better, and the Chargers and Raiders could also improve enough to make things more difficult for the Broncos. Peyton Manning isn’t getting any younger, so putting even more weapons around him and correcting the cracks in the defense will be good place to start.

The Broncos need a defensive tackle or two, a middle linebacker and depth in the secondary. The Broncos are also at an impasse with Elvis Dumervil, and the defensive end has asked for his release on Tuesday, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post. If Dumervil is released, the team will be in the market for a pass-rushing defensive end.

Offensively, the Broncos only need a running back to pair with Ronnie Hillman, but they could also add depth or find replacements at some positions. Right guard Chris Kuper has had trouble playing healthy, and the injuries have also taken a toll on his play. The Broncos might also want to give Manning a more dynamic slot receiver than Brandon Stokley.

It will be interesting to see how the Broncos move forward in their first full offseason with Manning. Consider this slideshow to be your complete guide to all of the latest rumors about the Broncos, signings, re-signings and departures this offseason.
