Broncos free agency tracker: Where will Denver put its resources early in the NFL’s legal tampering period?


Let the legal tampering commence.

The NFL’s free-agency bonanza begins in earnest at 10 a.m., when teams are allowed to begin negotiating with the agents of this year’s class of unrestricted free agents.

Deals can be agreed to, though nothing is signed, sealed and delivered until after the 2024 league year begins at 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The Broncos have a long list of needs but also look a lot like a team in rebuilding mode. They’ve got around $29 million in cap space to operate with after a flurry of moves.

Here’s what Denver has already done leading into Monday:

• Informed QB Russell Wilson he’s to be released when the league year begins. He’s already agreed to a one-year deal with Pittsburgh.

• Released franchise cornerstone safety Justin Simmons

• Released TE Chris Manhertz

• Restructured WR Tim Patrick’s contract for 2024 to ensure his return

• Agreed to trade WR Jerry Jeudy to Cleveland for the Nos. 135 and 202 picks in next month’s draft

• Re-signed safety P.J. Locke (two years, up to $9 million) and OL Quinn Bailey (one year, $1.055 million non-guaranteed)

It’s been a busy week. Now the next phase begins. It’ll all be covered right here in The Post’s free agency tracker.

Let’s Ride. Wait… uh, let’s roll.
