Let's take a look at the team's pending free agents, and share some thoughts on what the Broncos might do.

Champ wants back, suggests he’s open to a move to safety

One couldn't help but wonder whether Champ Bailey would have retired with a Broncos victory on Sunday night.

Well, he doesn't yet have the opportunity to walk away on top ala John Elway.

Of course, the next questions are whether he'll be back with the Broncos in 2014, and if so, where he'll be playing, and for how much money.

Broncos’ latest fears confirmed as Harris has torn ACL

Denver's divisional round win over San Diego came with a heavy price, as corner Chris Harris suffered a torn left ACL.

Harris left in the third quarter with knee and ankle injuries, and was replaced in incompetent fashion by Quentin Jammer, who allowed three receptions in five targets for 95 yards and a touchdown, according to PFF.

An MRI on Monday morning confirmed the injury to the stalwart third-year corner.

Broncos waive Walton

Broncos add Jeremy Mincey

As we'd brilliantly suggested (more like threw $%^& against the wall) might happen a couple of days ago, the Broncos have added former Jaguars DE Jeremy Mincey.

Jacksonville had cut Mincey last week over repeated issues of tardiness and violation of team rules.

The 6-4, 265-pounder was drafted by the Patriots in 2006, and played under Jack Del Rio for 4.5 seasons with the Jaguars.

The Stanford alum has 22 total tackles and one forced fumble in 27 career games (12 starts).

Broncos place Moore on short-term IR, sign Huff

The Broncos have placed Rahim Moore on short-term IR following his surgery for lateral compartment syndrome, and filled his roster spot with former Raiders and Ravens safety Michael Huff.

Moore played 30 snaps during Denver's 27-17 win over Kansas City on Sunday night before leaving with what was characterized on NBC as a mysterious leg injury.

He was replaced by Mike Adams, never to return, and underwent surgery Monday morning.
