Original post 5:28PM ET - According to Mike Klis, Jim Mora is still considered the lead candidate to run Denver's defense despite having left Denver without a contract last night. He is reportedly waiting to speak with Eagles coach Andy Reid about the open DC position in Philly before making a decision on his future. No word on whether the Broncos are considering any candidates aside from Mora and Green Bay DL coach Mike Trgovac.
