Denver Broncos Free Agents 2012: Drayton Florence Signs With Denver

The Denver Broncos announced on Thursday afternoon that they have agreed to terms with free agent cornerback Drayton Florence:

Florence received his release from the Buffalo Bills, where he spent the last three years, in early May and immediately drew interest from his old team, the San Diego Chargers, and the Tennessee Titans in addition to the Broncos.

With Champ Bailey and free-agent signing Tracy Porter starting, the 31-year-old Florence is likely to emerge as the nickel cornerback. Chris Harris played there as a rookie, but Florence, despite struggles in 2011, should enter camp as the favorite to play there.

Peyton Manning Rumors 2012: Denver Broncos Will Inquire About Free Agent QB, According To Report

The Denver Broncos will enter the wild derby that will become the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post. This comes just one day after Klis believed the Broncos would not be a bidder for Manning's services.

But before we start labeling the Broncos as a real player for the quarterback, Klis writes that the team is merely calling Manning's agent, Tom Condon, to gauge his client's interest in Denver. Klis then breaks down the reasons why the team might not do it, ones we've mentioned here already: Manning's neck issues, his age, Tim Tebow.

Bringing in Manning isn't a bad idea, but the team sure does need to have a plan in case the worst-case scenario happens: Manning's neck isn't healed and he can't play. How many seasons are the Broncos going to alienate Tim Tebow as the supposed starter for the team?

Broncos Offseason: Nate Irving Taking Over At Middle Linebacker Full Time In 2012?

The Denver Broncos have a lot to sort out during the offseason, and not all of their issues revolve around quarterback Tim Tebow. According to The Sporting News' Andrew Mason, who broke down the Broncos' offseason checklist Sunday, head coach John Fox needs to find out what he's going to do with the middle linebacker position.

"Starting middle linebacker Joe Mays is an unrestricted free agent," wrote Mason. "He might not have started at all in 2011 had there been a normal offseason; the lockout scuttled organized team activities, so third-round pick Nate Irving had no chance to adequately learn the defense. The Broncos like Irving's presence and potential. It would be no surprise if they give him the job and part with Mays."

Last season, Irving did not start and played mostly on special teams, tallying just three tackles. In 2009, while still at N.C. State, Irving suffered a broken leg and a punctured lung. However, he successfully came back from that in 2010 and worked his way into being a mid-round draft pick.
