I’m surprised we haven’t added anyone from outside. Technically we did claim Gemmell the week before (not surprising with ILB). And we don't know if Paton got sniped on claims (for example, Chicago's claim on Armon Watts, who Paton is very familiar with, for example - @broncosfan_101 mentioned that earlier). Any team that finished below us has priority. Still, it does signal our roster is getting deeper. Not having to mine other teams' cuts to fill the roster with multiple guys is a good sign. ILB/DL are the areas that remain most vulnerable, so it will be interesting to see how Paton addresses that, or if he's satisfied. Remember that if you wait until after Week 1 to sign veteran FA's, their salaries are week-to-week only, but if you sign them now - you're guaranteeing the full salary for the entire year. That's a big influence on delaying signings until after Week 1. How Paton acts after Week 1 will be a lot more telling IMO than right now, given the financial incentives. I think it's a game we'll see many teams play. Edited August 31, 2022 by Broncofan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
