Broncos to Go After Panthers Free Agent DE Johnson?

Fox Sports reports that a big name that the Broncos are going to target in free agency is Panthers DE Charles Johnson.

In transitioning back to the 4-3 under new coach John Fox, the Denver Broncos plan to use 3-4 linebackers Elvis Dumervil and Robert Ayers at end. And the Broncos grabbed Von Miller, the consensus best pass-rusher in the draft, in the first round, but it’s still expected that Fox will push for the team to be suitors for Carolina defensive end Charles Johnson, a pending unrestricted free agent. Fox, of course, coached Johnson with the Panthers. Only a four-year veteran, and just 24 years old, he had 11.5 sacks in 2010. Fox, whose track record with ends and “edge” players in general is pretty solid, believes you can’t have enough pass rushers, even if a lot of people feel the Broncos’ biggest defensive need is at tackle, a position they didn’t address in the draft.
