The Denver Broncos made waves on Wednesday with the signing of former New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and free agent defensive tackle Terrance Knighton and they have now added some talent to their secondary. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, one of the top free agent corners on the market has landed on the Broncos roster.
Broncos reached agreement on a one-year deal with former Eagles CB Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie.

Rodgers-Cromartie has loads of potential, but has never been able to live up to the hype. If he can learn from future Hall of Famer Champ Bailey, then Rodgers-Cromartie could put together his skill level with his talent. The former first-round pick could benefit greatly from learning from one of the game’s greats.
If that happens, it will be a great signing for the Broncos.
This move could prove to be much bigger boost for the team long-term than the acquisition of Welker.
