Five players , one team, one dream ... The Super Bowl. Wes Welker, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Terrance Knighton, Kevin Vickerson, Stewart Bradley,  and the Denver Broncos franchise are all looking forward to serious Super Bowl contention in the 2013 NFL season. To recap, today the #Broncos signed or agreed to terms with: D. Rodgers-Cromartie, T. Knighton, W. Welker, S. Bradley & K. Vickerson. — Denver Broncos (@DenverBroncos) March 14, 2013 The franchise sent a powerful, 'look out' message to the league on Wednesday with their groundbreaking signings of wide receiver Welker from the Patriots to a two-year deal and cornerback Rodgers-Cromartie from the Eagles to a one-year deal to add to quarterback Peyton Manning's arsenal. Wes Welker lands a two-year, $12 million deal from the Broncos. Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker. Have fun, Peyton. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2013 Welker joins the already formidable duo of Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker in Denver after they all eclipsed the 1,000 yards receiving mark in the 2012 season, with Welker gaining his fifth 1,000 yards plus catching year in the past six seasons. The precise arm of Peyton Manning will only increase the threat that the Broncos pose to any defense with the already intimidating presence of Denver's receiving corps. Manning threw for his second best overall passing yards total of his career this past regular season with 4,659 yards. To accompany his passing yards total Peyton also accounted for 37 passing touchdowns last season, also his second best career total, reports NFL.com. Cornerback Rodgers-Cromartie, defensive tackles Knighton and Vickerson, and linebacker Bradley pose a new threat to opposing offenses with their addition to a Denver defense that was ranked 12th in the league in 2012. Rodgers-Cromartie's brief history with the Eagles was bittersweet with the defensive back only experiencing short bursts of success, although he did lead Philly's defense in passes defended, writes NFL.com's Dan Hanzus. Knighton is said to be a good fit for Denver defense because of his past success with the Jaguars under coach Jack Del Rio, now the Bronco's defensive coordinator. His right hand man will be Kevin Vickerson, the eight year veteran entering his fourth season with the Broncos, who had 28 tackles last year. Stewart Bradley, the former Cardinal, comes in it at the middle linebacker position but, started just once in two seasons in Arizona and underperformed his stellar contract that could have earned him $25 million, according to Andrew Mason of the DenverBroncos.com. Denver's signings and new terms agreements leaves many wondering if they can realize their dream of winning a Super Bowl and turn it into reality. The Bronco's last Super Bowl appearance came 15 years ago when Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway led them to back-to-back Super Bowl victories in '97 and '98.
