The Denver Broncos just went out and spent big on Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward and it appears that they’re not done spending just yet. While the team has DeMarcus Ware on their radar, they also have an under-the-radar receiver in their sights as well.
According to Ian Rapoport from NFL Network, Brandon LaFell will likely get scooped up by the Denver Broncos if he leave New England sans a contract.

This comes less than a day after the Broncos came out of absolutely nowhere to sign former Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib to a fat contract, and adding LaFell could be another jab.
Something else to consider is the future of Julian Edelman. He’s testing free agent waters at the moment, but the Broncos were linked to him back before the Super Bowl even kicked off. There hasn’t been public interest in Edelman, but if the Broncos don’t steal LaFell away from New England, Edelman might be another option.
