The 2020 season is going to be a big one for the Denver Broncos. They feel like they have found their franchise quarterback and expectations are this will be a playoff team again going forward. To shore up their roster, they are going to need to have a big offseason filled with signing and drafting the right players. According to spotrac.com, the Broncos are projected to have over $60 million in cap space.
So who should the Broncos go after? Let’s break down three players the Broncos should target during free agency.
Robby Anderson – Wide Receiver
The Broncos have something special with Courtland Sutton, but they need more talent out wide to give Drew Lock some more targets. This isn’t a loaded free agency class for wide receivers, but there are some good players that can be had.
Robby Anderson isn’t expected to get a blockbuster payday, but he is still a player that can be an impact player from game one. During the 2019 season, Anderson caught 52 passes for 779 yards and five touchdowns.
He is a deep threat that can take the top off of the defense. Even if the team doesn’t go after Anderson, the team needs to find a solid veteran receiver to help the team.
Chris Jones – Defensive tackle
Chris Jones very well could go back to the Chiefs. But if he doesn’t, the team needs to go after the Kansas City Chiefs standout. The Broncos have an elite defense, but they could use some big upgrades on the defensive line.
Jones is a player who consistently draws double teams. But even that can’t slow him down. During the regular season with the Chiefs, he had 36 tackles and nine sacks.
If Jones was added to the defense, opposing offenses would have to make some choices about what guys they wanted to focus on, because there couldn’t be a focus on everyone.
Byron Jones – Cornerback
Chris Harris Jr. looks like he will be moving onto another team this offseason. Which might actually be okay because he had a down 2019 season. Byron Jones has been the best player on the Cowboys the last few years, and all signs point towards him leaving Dallas.
To get Jones it’s probably going to take a big contract, but the Broncos have the money to spend. If they can get a lockdown corner, it’s only going to improve the defense and the Broncos will suddenly be a threat again in the AFC West.
