3 best players the Broncos must re-sign in 2022 NFL free agency
The Denver Broncos season is over and the franchise aims for bigger and better things. They’ve already been a bit busy after the front office decided to part ways with Vic Fangio. There’s quite a way before we reach the Broncos 2022 NFL Free Agency. However, we go over the top assets Denver must re-sign in the offseason.
Denver’s defense is nothing to mess with and the front office should highly consider bringing back as many of those players as possible. This defense is the anchor for the team right now and the Broncos must make sure all of their pieces are in order. Two defensive players stand out as must re-signs.
As for the offense, the Broncos aren’t too far away from having a legitimate squad. The front office should get aggressive and pursue an elite quarterback to lead this team. However, before they can do that, Denver will aim to re-sign some of their offensive players. One of which, should be at the top of the priority list.
With that said, here is our top re-sign candidates for the Denver Broncos 2022 NFL Free Agency.

Broncos Free Agency Re-Sign Targets
3. Stephen Weatherly
Stephen Weatherly isn’t the most popular name, but he’s been solid with his limited opportunities this year. He started the season with the Minnesota Vikings before arriving in Denver. Weatherly finished the year with 23 total tackles. His 2.5 sacks were both achieved with the Broncos.
Considering Stephen Weatherly is 27 years old, that makes him a perfect re-sign candidate for the Broncos. He plays great in a depth role and could help develop any younger talent the franchise brings in. Look for Weatherly to possibly be one of the first players re-signed in the offseason.
2. Kyle Fuller
The Broncos’ secondary is the life force of this defense. Patrick Surtain looks like the next superstar cornerback, however, Denver should look into bringing Kyle Fuller back for at least one more year. He’s been an incredibly efficient player throughout his career and somehow flies under the radar.

Re-signing Fuller allows the Broncos to maintain their elite secondary while the front office builds upon the rest of the roster. Although the 2021 season was his worst year statistically, he still played a vital role in this defense. He did most of the dirty work that isn’t shown on the stat sheet but could be in for a big year if he returns.
1. Melvin Gordon
Many believe Javaonte Williams will take over as the starting running back for the Broncos next season. However, Melvin Gordon has shown he still has the juice to be a legitimate run option in the league. Between the two, Denver had a sturdy rushing attack all season and the front office will want to maintain that identity.
Williams is likely to be the starting running back next year, but Gordon can be a high-end backup. With the NFL adding the extra game, more teams will be adjusting to a two-running back system. The Broncos can stay ahead of the curve if they choose to re-sign Melvin Gordon. Not to mention, having Williams and Gordon in the backfield could persuade an elite-level quarterback to play in Denver next year.
