(Getty Images) Heading into the 2013 NFL offseason, the Denver Broncos could use some leadership at the safety position.  Could Baltimore’s Ed Reed fill in the gap? The Broncos have a veteran in Mike Adams, but Adams is not the type of play-maker that Reed has been throughout his career.  At least one Broncos insider, CBS4′s Vic Lombardi, could see the Broncos pursuing Reed in free agency. Reed would come at a reasonable price (a much better bargain than another free agent defensive back, Darrelle Revis).  The Broncos have had veteran safeties including John Lynch and Brian Dawkins finish their careers in Denver, Reed may be next. If Reed does in fact land in Denver, it will probably be awkward when he meets Knowshon Moreno.  Reed and Moreno have, of course, met on the field. More notes and links after the jump. Last season, Denver’s Champ Bailey and Chris Harris combined to allow 929 yards through the air, the lowest total among any cornerback duo in the league.  Revi$ who? Fullback Jacob Hester says losing in the playoffs hurt, but the team has to refocus and begin working towards a successful 2013 season. The Denver Post‘s Mike Klis touches on the subject of Denver going after Reed, mentioning that Rahim Moore does not necessarily need to be replaced (but how about an upgrade over Adams?). According to ProFootballTalk, the Broncos are going into the offseason with around $14.1 million in addition to the unadjusted cap number, which is expected to be in the vicinity of $121 million. While we’re on the topic of Revis and Reed, why not throw Wes Welker into the conversation?  Welker, like Revis, will demand a lot of money.  For that reason, it seems unlikely that either will land in Denver.  Reed, on the other hand, seems to be a possible target. The Broncos are continuing their push to host either Super Bowl LI or LII, as the team is expected to “bid” to host the game in the coming years. What are your thoughts, Broncos fans?  After re-signing Ryan Clady, should the Broncos go after Reed?  Revis?  Welker?  Give us your thoughts in the comments below!
