Denver Broncos’ key additions and subtractions:

Additions:

I really like what the Broncos did in the 2020 NFL Draft and it pains me to say as a Charger fan. The mantra for the team was to surround young quarterback Drew Lock with weapons and the team did just that, drafting two very talented receivers in Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler.

The team also added more depth to the offensive line with Lloyd Cushenberry and Netane Muti, with the focus again being around Lock.

In terms of free-agent signings, the Broncos bolstered the offensive line some more by signing guard Graham Glasgow and added another weapon for Lock in Melvin Gordon. I know Gordon is now hated by Charger fans, but you cannot ignore how good Philip Linday and Melvin Gordon is as a running back tandem.

The team also traded for A.J. Bouye, who could reinvent himself in Denver, but has not been great in recent years.

Subtractions:

The team lost a really good center in Connor McGovern, which is why they went out and drafted Cushenberry from LSU.

The team also lost Chris Harris to the LA Chargers, which was a really exciting signing for the Bolts. Harris had his worst year since his first two years in the league last season but is going to be an impact player in a defense as talented as the Chargers’.

Defensive end Derek Wolfe also signed with the Baltimore Ravens.
