Broncos OTA 2012: Denver's Revamped Secondary Earns Praise

The biggest change between the 2011 Denver Broncos and the 2012 edition of the team is, of course, very obvious. The signing of eventual Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning rightfully got most of the attention this offseason, but the Broncos also overhauled their secondary in order to solidify the team around its prized free agent acquisition.

John Elway and the rest of the Denver front office brought in ex-New Orleans Saints Super Bowl hero Tracy Porter as well as longtime Buffalo Bills corner Drayton Florence. The new look secondary has already been lauded after the first few days of OTAs.

"We've got three great cover corners to work against,'' Manning said this week as the Broncos began their first full practices of the offseason. "... I mean, if you can't get better going against some of these top cover corners, then it's just not meant to be.''
