Denver Broncos general manager John Elway has never been shy of making big moves. Over the years, he’s landed top-quality talent in Peyton Manning, Wes Welker, T.J. Ward, Aqib Talib, DeMarcus Ware and Emmanuel Sanders.

Though limited cap space prevented Elway from adding big players in 2015 and 2016, star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. believes his general manager will be busy this offseason, per Conor Orr from NFL.com:
“After the season hopefully everything starts to get rolling. Once free agency comes you know Elway is going to make some splashes. I’m excited to see who he brings as a part of the team.”
Could that be Tony Romo? One can only wonder.
It’s safe to assume the Broncos won’t be making too many big moves on defense after finishing as the league’s fourth-best unit in 2016 despite some injuries to many of the key players.
But regarding Harris’ quotes, it’s safe to assume Elway’s big moves will include addressing the offensive side of the ball. Perhaps they do go for Tony Romo. They also need another veteran pass-catcher to help Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. They need a whole new offensive line, too.
Elway has been the most aggressive general manager since landing Peyton Manning in 2012, and he faces the dilemma of addressing a questionable quarterback situation again.
With new head coach Vance Joseph and returning offensive coordinator Mike McCoy on staff, it’ll be interesting to see if they and Elway decide to work from within or add more pieces in an attempt to bring this city its second Super Bowl in three seasons.
