Broncos Do Safety Dance

At the very least, the Denver Broncos addressed some concerns in their secondary as on Saturday, the team signed two safeties, Marlon McCree and Marquand Manuel; the moves were intended to protect them in the event that the safety crop in htis year’s draft turns out to be weak and also adds depth at the position.  McCree should compete with incumbent John Lynch for the starting job at strong safety and Manuel will test relatively green Hamza Abdullah at the free safety position.

McCree started his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2001, moving on to Houston, Carolina and San Diego, where he played 2 seasons and 30 games; McCree, so far in his 106-game career, has recorded 421 tackles.  Manuel has played 91 games in his career, including stops in Cincinnati, Seattle, Green Bay and Carolina.  Terms of McCree’s contract weren’t readily available, but Manuel received a 3-year deal worth $4.5 million, with $500,000 guaranteed; Manuel’s contract could increase by another $1.5 million based on playing time incentives.
