The Broncos are facing questions and uncertainty this offseason after coming off another losing season.

Denver’s new general manager George Paton has a lot of decisions to make as he begins to piece together the Broncos’ free agent and NFL Draft wish list. In 14 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, Paton had a hand in securing 17 Pro Bowlers through the draft and undrafted free agents.

Pass rusher Von Miller ($22.1 million cap hit) and safety Kareem Jackson ($12.8 million cap hit) both have team options in their contract for 2021. According to Spotrac, Miller’s $22.1 million cap hit in 2021 could be the second-highest for outside linebackers. Safety Justin Simmons played on the franchise tag in 2020 after the Broncos failed to get a deal done. An NFL insider reported earlier this week that Simmons will likely be franchise tagged again, paying him at least $13.73 million in 2021.
