Free agent defensive tackle Broderick Bunkley paid a visit to the New Orleans Saints this weekend, but the Denver Broncos are reportedly working hard to retain him. From Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post:
Also noteworthy from today: #Broncos still working hard to get deal with Brodrick Bunkley done.— Lindsay Jones (@PostBroncos) March 21, 2012
Defensive tackle is a thin position on the free agent market and Bunkley may be the best player available, despite not being known to produce much of a pass rush. Bunkley can still be an effective run stopper in a 4-3 scheme, making him an attractive player to many teams. Bunkley had 43 tackles (and zero sacks) for Denver a season ago.
