A super secondary for Broncos?
The Denver Post
Operating amid thunderous outrage of what was a tumultuous start to the offseason, the Broncos may have quietly gathered one of the NFL’s best secondaries.
“We should be the top secondary in the league,” strong safety Renaldo Hill said. “I don’t think anyone is expecting anything less.”
The boldness of Hill’s statement was nearly concealed by his low-key delivery and unassuming nature. Later, Hill said he meant that through hard work, his unit can become the best. But, upon reflection, there may have been no reason for Hill to backpedal.
Think about it: Name another secondary that has two Hall of Fame-caliber defensive backs with 15 combined Pro Bowls, as the Broncos do in cornerback Champ Bailey and safety Brian Dawkins. Added to that are Hill and cornerback Andre Goodman, who received a combined $30 million in new contracts this offseason.
Who else has two candidates for bronze busts and two handsomely paid free agents, who are backed up by two second-round rookies in cornerback Alphonso Smith and safety Darcel McBath?
“Yeah, on paper we sound good,” Goodman said. “Super Bowls were never won on paper. At the end of the day, you can put five Hall of Fame players in the secondary, and if you don’t win, what does it matter?”
