If the Broncos could make a deal to bring Ty Warren to Denver, he could make the biggest impact among free agent acquisitions in 2011.

This NFL offseason has been a whirlwind.

There are reports coming from all over the league—and many reports have changed multiple times.

This has been true for the Broncos just as much as for the rest of the league.

While the biggest splash for the Broncos has been the acquisition of Willis McGahee (which hasn't been finalized as of yet), the Broncos have made strides to fill glaring needs in their pursuit of several players.

A major contribution to the Broncos free-agency woes was their inability to deal Kyle Orton, who is due $8.4 million this season as a Bronco.

In contrast, Tim Tebow will make $7.9 million this season, and could make up to $8.23 million if he is the starter. These big contracts to two separate quarterbacks have considerably limited the Broncos in their moves so far and may continue to slow down the process if the issue isn't resolved.

The major acquisitions the Broncos have made—or are making—for the 2011 season have mostly been at the defensive tackle and tight end positions.
