The Broncos bolstered their backfield by bringing in youth – Coastal Carolina touchdown machine De’Angelo Henderson – and experience – Jamaal Charles . They replaced four-fifths of their O-line, and center Matt Paradis had both hips surgically repaired. Rookie Isaiah McKenzie adds speed to the wide receiving corps.
The biggest offseason fix, however, came on defense, with 32-year-old nose tackle Domata Peko coming over from Cincinnati to plug a line whose breach last season defanged Denver’s strengths that had propelled its Super Bowl run.
With the Broncos’ run defense compromised down the stretch, opposing quarterbacks didn’t have to worry about testing All-Pro cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr., or about pass rusher Von Miller wrecking their day.
