    ACTUally we do need another safety almost as bad as we need a dominant pass rush. John lynch is a great run support but you can't ignore his lack of speed and his inability to get to the quarterback on safety blizts calls. We need a speedy safety like the rookie manning from the bears, or Merrieweather would be a nice addition.

    I don't care who the safety is as long as he has speed and upkeeps the Broncos traditions as being hard nose helmet to helmet hitters.

    agreed with you

      The Broncos signed Steve Cargile to Active Roster. He 6'2 210 and in his 2nd year. He should be sufficient. And Quentin Harris is also on the active roster as a safety, 6'1 213 5th year. I think we're fine.

        Fine with a couple of scrubs? No way. I'm really hoping for a first day safety or an FA. A complete safety...and next year we can run a four way rotation with Lynch, Brandon, Trainwreck and said newbie.

          I think we all are jumping to conclusion to fast,we keep everyone and sign two or three DL and take care of that problem first.Then we will see that other players are good.I really think we need a better replacement for Myers.

            I think SS is a genuine need for the future. Lynch and Trainwreck are a great tandem but they are both into their 30s and we only have one bona fide replacement (Sam Brandon) at FS. With at least one of them retiring in the near future (most likely John), I think it's best we act now to get that complete safety. Yes, Lynch and Ferguson have been the best tandem we've had for years (it's been a bit of a revolving door...) but it's unlikely that they'll get better from here. I'm worried about Fergy after his injury...it was a real bugger because he was set for a near-Pro Bowl year.

              I think if Reggie Nelson is there (which I don't think he will) at #21 we need to take him. He is the next Ed Reed. Just youtube search him and you'll see. Otherwise we should package up and get him with our lelie 3rd rounder.

              I think safety is a definite need on this team. Lynch isn't getting any younger and I think Fergy is in his 30s as well. Cox and Abdullah stepped in and did well, but I think we need a complete safety that isn't a liability in coverage.

              Draft Reggie Nelson!!

                Safety isn't even near the top in things we need to get done this offseason.

                  Uhh...Lynch is 36 yrs old. How much longer do you think he will be able to play at a high level? Yeah, he has been playing great for us, but I'm looking at the future.

                  This thread was made for purposes of our FUTURE. Dont give me arguments of how he has played in the recent past, because that is irrelevant.

                  I think Lynch still has at least one or two very solid seasons in him, particularly if we move him back to SS. He's never been a player who relied on speed to get the job done; it's his smarts and his hitting that make him awesome, and those don't fade as much with age.

                  Ferguson was having a great year before his injury; it seems to me that a lot of us haven't realized how good he really is yet. We don't really require an upgrade at safety right now.

                  I think the secondary will be fine this next season. Champ and Foxworth at CB, Lynch and Ferguson at Safety, complemented by Brandon and Cox when needed...that's a lot of solid talent at DB.

                  We're still very good at LB too.

                  Upgrades on the defensive and offensive lines are the most urgent and necessary upgrades, and should be the highest priorities this offseason. If we can get a good free agent defensive back for a reasonable price, I wouldn't complain, but we lost a lot of games in the trenches this season.

                  For the future, we need O-line guys especially. I like some of the young guys we have (Pears, Meadows, Kuper, and Elsinger have potential), but the starters we have now are really getting up there in age and we need their replacements to be ready when Nalen, Lepsis, and the rest retire.

                  We also need to look at a new #2 QB, and possibly another HB, depending on what Shanny wants to do with the Bells. I still like Mike and Tatum, and I think the O-line injuries had a lot to do with their problems this year, but if a guy like Marshawn Lynch is still there when we draft I think we'd be stupid not to get a premier guy to carry the rock.
