(Getty Images) Former Denver Broncos linebacker Keith Burns has been a special teams assistant in Denver since 2007.  On Tuesday, he signed with the Washington Redskinsas their new special teams coordinator. FootballOutsiders.com‘s Andy Benoit suggests Randy Starks, Terrance Knighton, and Alan Branch as a few potential free agent defensive tackles that Denver could pursue. Denver’s Von Miller is a member of NFL.com’s All-Under-25 Team. If the Minnesota Vikings do place wide receiver Percy Harvin on the trading block, Denver may be tempted to make an offer. The Broncos are in a dire cap situation, so restructuring quarterback Peyton Manning‘s contract isn’t something the team necessarily needs to worry about. USAToday.com‘s Pete O’Brien says running back Ronnie Hillman could have a breakout year in his second season.
