The seven free agents that the Broncos have signed thus far during the 2013 offseason all have one thing in common.
Each player appeared in all 16 games for their respective teams last season.
Four of the seven started double-digit contests, including wide receiver Wes Welker, who has been named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster in each of the past five seasons.
Combined, the free-agent class played 112 games, including 62 starts, in 2012.
Head Coach John Fox expects that experience to add competition and depth to a club that finished 13-3 and earned the AFC’s top playoff seed.
The Broncos’ free-agent class has been well received among fans, and received an A- from the USA Today’s Nate Davis, who graded all 32 teams.
“Every year in the offseason you make acquisitions, whether it’s in free agency or the draft,” Fox said. “I don’t think you immediately know, other than on paper. You don’t know on the field yet. But there are people that of course will make all kind of speculations on paper. But I haven’t won too many games on paper.”
