Broncos put a scare into rest of the NFL

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - It sure seems like John Elway and the Denver Broncos took that Super Bowl loss hard.
Because they don't plan on it happening again.
After shelling out $60 million of guaranteed money to sign safety T.J. Ward, cornerback Aqib Talib and edge rusher DeMarcus Ware in the first 22 hours of free agency, the Broncos are not only in a position to get back to the big game, they are practically the AFC's presumptive nominee.
"Injuries played a big role with our defense last year," Elway said. "Guys stepped up and did a good job, but we had a chance to get better and we really liked these players and they wanted to come to Denver. We added a physical presence."
Denver was always going to be a serious threat to get back to the Super Bowl as long as quarterback Peyton Manning remained upright, but by "winning" the early portion of free agency, the Broncos have lapped a field they were already dominating.
