Former Broncos guru Mike Shanahan isn’t done stocking up on receiver talent.  After signing Pierre Garcon the old ball coach is now bringing in his former 2nd round draft pick to revamp the receiving corp.  The Skins inked Eddie Royal to a 2 year $12 Million dollar deal according to the Washington Post.  Many heart felt good byes have already been sent to Eddie’s twitter account from the Broncos’ faithful.  Fans couldn’t ask for a better guy to root for or have their kids look up to but 6 million per year is a high price to pay for the 3rd wideout on the depth chart.

Denver will have to address kick and punt returning duties along with a slot/3rd receiver now in free agency or the draft.  One has to wonder if we could see Brandon Stokley re-unite with the Broncos if Peyton Manning decided on Denver.  (The two worked out in Castle Rock during Peyton’s Colorado trip)  This also adds other potential options to the market.  The Redskins pulled their own tri-fecta today signing up Josh Morgan.  This leaves next to no room on their roster for vets Jabar Gaffney and Santana Moss.
