The Broncos weren't planning to do much in the offseason. But then it happened again: Another first-round playoff loss on the road in Indianapolis.

This team wants to be among the elite. Thus, another year of change was necessary. Denver was perhaps the busiest NFL team in the offeseason. But will it work?
