ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos were active during the first 24 hours of free agency, to say the least.
Adding defensive end DeMarcus Ware, cornerback Aqib Talib and safety T.J. Ward will, as Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway put it on The Dave Logan Show on 850 KOA, "help us tremendously on the defensive side."
But the big-name signings have led some to believe that the Broncos have put themselves in an "all-in" mode for the present while disregarding the future.
Elway made sure to dispel those concerns.
"By no means have we done anything cap-wise or anything to mortgage or take away from the future," he continued. "(Owner and CEO) Pat Bowlen is the one that is insistent on winning from now on. I hear him loud and clear.”
