INDIANAPOLIS _ One position the Broncos haven’t got quite right in the draft is safety. Their two drafted safeties last year _ Rahim Moore in the second and Quinton Carter in the fourth _ each had their struggles with coming up to tackle. And now with 16-year veteran Brian Dawkins expected to retire, the Broncos will be looking to sign a free-agent safety who can hit people. One possibility is Brandon Meriweather. A first-round pick of the New England Patriots, Meriweather hits so hard he was fined $50,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet blow to Ravens TE Todd Heap in 2010. Meriweather had a tough 2011 season, first getting released by the Pats, then benched by the Bears. But sometimes it’s about fit and it’s difficult to imagine a hard-hitting safety not fitting with the Broncos’ defensive needs.
