Tracking your Denver Broncos free agent news and rumors – Mile High Report (blog)
Much like last year, the Broncos are again quiet early on. However, there are some Broncos players getting attention this week.
The biggest free agent rumors surrounding the Denver Broncos over the last week have centered around Julius Thomas and Rahim Moore. We all pretty much know Thomas is gone, but I am more than a little disappointed that Moore could be on his way out as well. For that one bad play, he has been nothing short of a solid starter who will be hard to replace in 2015.
Rahim Moore Rumors
March 3, 2015 -The Denver Post anticipates free agent FS Rahim Moore commanding more than $5 million annually on the open market.

The New York Giants, not the Philadelphia Eagles, appear to be the first suitor for Moore. They certainly need help on defense and Moore is easily the second best safety on the market in 2015.
Losing Rahim Moore is going to be a blow no matter how you feel about the 2012 playoffs. Last season, Moore ranked 14th out of all safeties in coverage who played a majority of snaps for their respective teams (51 total made the cut), according to Pro Football Focus. This is significant, because T.J. Ward possessed the fourth worst out of those 51 safeties when put in coverage.
