The Denver Broncos are currently preparing for their match up with the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII, but they will have to immediately turn their attention to free agency once the final whistle blows on Feb. 2.
A whopping sixteen Broncos players are set to become free agents in the offseason, including a number of starters and key contributors.
Who are the sixteen Broncos set to hit the open market in March? Here is a full list:
- Eric Decker, wide receiver
- Knowshon Moreno, running back
- Zane Beadles, offensive guard
- Shaun Phillips, defensive end
- Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, cornerback
- Wesley Woodyard, linebacker
- Mike Adams, safety
- Robert Ayers, defensive end
- Paris Lenon, linebacker
- Andre Caldwell, wide receiver
- Chris Kuper, offensive guard
- Quentin Jammer, cornerback
- Jeremy Mincey, defensive end
- Michael Huff, safety
- Steve Vallos, center-guard
- Winston Justice, offensive tackle.
Re-signing Decker will likely be the team’s top priority and they would like to bring Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie back to patrol the secondary, but they will need to determine what to do with Knowshon Moreno and the others.
It is very likely that Moreno could be cut loose thanks to the depth Denver currently has in the backfield, but it will all come down to their salary cap situation and the contract demands that the free agents are looking for.
Denver is going to have an interesting few weeks leading up to the start of the new league year, but for now the players focus will be on hoisting the Lombardi Trophy and taking down Seattle.
