Freeney, Abraham Visit Broncos [VIDEO]

The Denver Broncos are set to talk with free agent pass rushers Dwight Freeney and John Abraham today, 48 hours after they submitted a new contract proposal to Elvis Dumervil.

The 33-year-old Freeney and 34-year-old Abraham are both older and less productive than the 29-year-old Dumervil, but might make financial sense for the Broncos, who had to cut Dumervil last week to avoid paying him $12 million in 2013.

Dumervil’s then-agent Marty Magid and the Broncos renegotiated a three-year, $30 million deal Friday that included an $8 million 2013 salary, but the paperwork didn’t get done in time.   So, the Broncos cut Dumervil and took a nearly $5 million salary cap hit.

They submitted a new offer this week to Dumervil and his new agent, Tom Condon, who also represents Freeney.

BRONCOS-VASQUEZ

New Denver Broncos’ right guard Louis Vasquez has a penchant for avoiding penalties and keeping his quarterback upright.

He only committed one infraction in college — he says it was a bad call, of course — and he had one more in his four years with the San Diego Chargers, and that came on a field goal.

At 330 pounds, he’s also adept at anchoring the pocket and keeping his quarterback clean, having allowed an average of just 2.75 sacks a season in the NFL, according to STATS LLC.

That, along with his terrific technique, is what made him so attractive to Broncos front office chief John Elway, who has spent his offseason trying to surround Peyton Manning with players who can help him win the next Super Bowl. (AP)
