The Denver Broncos seemingly had one mission going into the NFL’s free agent frenzy – improve their secondary.
#Broncos were interested in defensive playmakers all day yesterday. Before they landed Talib, they tried to get in on Jairus Byrd.
It’s tough to judge by Ian Rapoport’s tweet if he was suggesting that the Broncos would have opted to give money to both Ward and Byrd or if they would have signed Byrd over Ward.
From the way it’s worded, it sounds like the Broncos would have attempted to sign both Ward and Byrd and possibly went for a cheaper corner back.
Regardless, Byrd is now a member of the New Orleans Saints for the next six seasons but that certainly would have been one hell of a secondary tandem.
