The Broncos made one of the biggest splashes in free agency so far after landing Wes Welker, signing him to a two-year, $12 million contract.
Not only did the Broncos bring in one of the best slot receivers the league has ever seen, they did it at the expense of the New England Patriots.
Welker has topped 100 receptions in a season five times over the course of his career, and he will be a major headache for opposing defenses next year.
The addition of Knighton was an excellent decision, and for the money, there probably wasn't a better one.
Knighton has played in Jacksonville his entire career, originally drafted by the regime once led by current Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio.
This bodes well for Knighton, who is a great run defender who has the ability to put pressure on the quarterback. Del Rio will be able to motivate him and get the most out of him.
If you watched the divisional playoff game against Baltimore, it should come as no surprise that Denver wanted to add a big name defensive back.
Rodgers-Cromartie had 13 interceptions in his first three seasons in the league with Arizona. But after moving on to Philadelphia, he was a bit of a disappointment.
Rodgers-Cromartie had three interceptions in two years with the Eagles where he spent time as a nickelback while Nnamdi Asomougha and Asante Samuel were the starters.
He will likely battle with Chris Harris for the starting cornerback spot opposite Champ Bailey, but if he is to take that position from Harris, he better be a lot more like the player he was in Arizona than the one he was in Philadelphia.
If the Broncos had a weakness on the offensive line last year, it was the guard position normally manned by Kuper. But Kuper missed more than half the season last year with injuries, forcing the team to turn to Manny Ramirez.
In his first four years in the league, Vasquez has started 54 games. His signing may indicate that the team doesn't feel Kuper will be able to overcome his injury history.
A six-year veteran, Bradley comes in to add depth to the linebacking corps.
A former third-round pick by Philadelphia, Bradley was most recently released by Arizona. He has three sacks and three interceptions in his career and will look to push any one of the starters for playing time, but he is a backup at best.
Overall Grade: A-
It's hard to argue with what the Broncos have done in free agency. They have obtained one of the best free-agent classes in the league with the signing of Welker putting it over the top.
