Found February 17, 2013 on BroncoTalk:
(Photo by Justin Edmonds/Getty Images) The Denver Broncos will probably have a new starting middle linebacker this season, but the team may not have to go far to find him. “The Broncos won’t be looking for a middle linebacker, even though Keith Brooking is a free agent and Joe Mays is coming off a season-ending injury. The plan is for Nate Irving and Steve Johnson to compete for the starting job at that position, with Irving having the edge because of experience. “Irving was Denver’s third-round draft pick in 2011 and was hurt as much as any player by the NFL lockout that year, but he flashed ability in 2012. Johnson was an undrafted rookie last season,” the Denver Post‘s Mike Klis wrote on Sunday afternoon. Klis went on to note that the team will use their franchise tag on left tackle on Ryan Clady as early as Tuesday and would like to re-sign safety/special teams ace David Bruton before the start of free agency (March 12).  You can find a list of free agents the Broncos may target right here.
