Assuming they get a new collective bargaining agreement done, NFL Free Agency is scheduled to begin on March 3, 2011. I'm going to go through every team between now and then and identify their top five free agents and try to determine what should be done with each player, be it resign them or let them walk. I'm going team by team in draft order and the Denver Broncos are the second team on my list.
The Broncos nearly had a lost season this year. The team went 8-8 in 2009 and people expected them to be able to compete in the weak AFC West this year, but the Broncos managed just a 4-12 record. They had the worst defense in the league in both yards and points allowed. Head Coach Josh McDaniels didn't even make it to the end of the season.
Fortunately, their season wasn't a complete loss because of Tim Tebow. Tebow was made starting quarterback at the end of the year and showed that he could succeed in the NFL like he did in college, despite not being a great traditional quarterback. With the quarterback of the future in place, new Head Coach John Fox has to decide what players he needs to keep to help Tebow and the Broncos win.
