The Broncos are hoping that DE Marco Coleman comes back for his 13th NFL season. He proved last year that he still can be an impact player, specially against the run. Coleman is no longer an every-down player, but he provides quality depth and is a good situational player. . . .
The Broncos are toying with the idea of moving TE Dwayne Carswell to offensive tackle - again. They tried that experiment in 2004, but soon changed when it became apparent they needed depth at tight end, so they moved Carswell back to his normal position. Carswell never lost weight after bulking up to 290 pounds and that was part of the reason he wasnot every effective as a tight end. Carswell is clearly nearing the end of his career, but he might be able to make the roster as a back-up tight end. . . .
The Broncos are going to be faced with a major decision during free agency: whether or not to chase after DE Reggie Hayward and offer him big money to remain in Denver. Hayward led the team with 10.5 sacks and he's going to command a lot of attention and money. The Broncos lost Bertand Berry to Arizona last season and don't want to lose another pass rusher. But the Broncos also must ask themselves if Hayward is worth a major investment. While he's a good situational pass rusher, he's not particularly strong against the run.
