Some Broncos will have to grow up quickly 

March, 21, 2014
The Denver Broncos showed what they thought of their projected depth chart by where, and how quickly, they spent their significant pile of money in the hours after free agency began.

They went defense, defense and defense in T.J. Ward, Aqib Talib and DeMarcus Ware before they then signed wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. But even given those four marquee efforts, the Broncos said a lot about their plans by what they didn't do in free agency.

In short, as general manager John Elway put it, "some of these young guys have to step up and be ready to contribute ... that's the way it has to be."
