Changes this offseason: Added Rahim Moore through the NFL draft.
One of John Elway's first personnel re-signings during the offseason was retaining Champ Bailey with a four-year, $43 million contract.
This signing was one of the smartest moves by the organization in recent years. Bailey, a fan favorite, is still a dominating cornerback. He still shuts down half of the field every week.
Andre Goodman lines up opposite Bailey for a third-straight season. Goodman has been consistent and does a very good job breaking up passes. His biggest issue last season was injuries. If he can remain healthy, the Broncos look good at corner.
He has been the most consistent, reliable player for the Broncos since he arrived in 2004.
Also, the front office re-worked Brian Dawkins' contract to keep him at a significantly reduced rate in 2011. He will work with the rookie Rahim Moore, who appears to be the starting free safety for the Broncos this season.
Moore has some adjusting to do: to the speed of the game, to opposing receivers who run much sharper routes in the NFL and to more skilled quarterbacks who do not telegraph passes. He is the weakest link in defensive coverage unit right now.
Overall, however, the Broncos have some of the best cover guys in the league. My grade is an A-.
