First, they signed Peyton Manning, the most efficient, most statistically-impressive quarterback in NFL history. He’s getting paid the big bucks to be the leader that brings the Broncos Super Bowl championships.
Then, they brought in Jim Leonhard, veteran free safety, and put him on the PUP list. He’ll be a leader and the quarterback of the defense.
Today, they signed 36-year old LB Keith Brooking.
Brooking made five consecutive Pro Bowls for the Falcons from 2001-2005. I absolutely love this low-risk signing, if for nothing else that effort can be contagious, and Brooking can be a leader in the locker room, weight room, sideline and whenever he’s on the field. Brooking made it to the Super Bowl his rookie season with the Falcons. Brooking lost his starting job in Dallas last season.
With some other members of the defense getting older (Bailey 34, Williams 30), the window could be closing. This team is in “win now” mode, and things get started on Sunday Night Football, September 9th hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. Before then on Thursday in Chicago, a battle will commence for the very important back-up quarterback position, along with many other roster spot battles in preseason.
