Broncos | Looking for a veteran safety

Fri, 09 Mar 2012 08:40:53 -0800

Safety was considered one of the weakest positions at season's end for the Denver Broncos and they plan to address it during the free-agent market. With S Brian Dawkins (neck) contemplating retirement at 38 years of age, the Broncos need to address the position. The team has youngsters Rahim Moore, Quinton Carter and Rafael Bush, and Moore will get a chance to win a starting job during the offseason. However, he needs to improve his tackling and the Broncos want someone to lead the defense from the safety position. Free-agent Brandon Meriweather (Bears) would be a potential target.
