  Broncos | Looking for a veteran safety    Fri Mar 9, 11:40 AM

Safety was considered one of the weakest positions at season's end for the Denver Broncos and they plan to address it during the free-agent market. With S Brian Dawkins (neck) contemplating retirement at 38 years of age, the Broncos need to address the position. The team has youngsters Rahim Moore, Quinton Carter and Rafael Bush, and Moore will get a chance to win a starting job during the offseason. However, he needs to improve his tackling and the Broncos want someone to lead the defense from the safety position.

Footballguys view: A couple of targets for the Broncos could be LaRon Landry (Redskins) if his Achilles' injury is properly healed. We also think Brandon Meriweather (Bears) is also a potential target.

To this point haven't had a chance to talk to him.'
