Welker deal among signs Broncos are in Super Bowl-or-bust mode
The Broncos have already made another splash in free agency, adding Wes Welker to a big free-agent class a year after securing Peyton Manning. However, knowing Manning's window is brief given his age and neck situation, they are all-in trying to win now.

Several league sources said the Broncos realize they might have to dismantle a good chunk of their roster within the next few years, and the big contracts could eventually lead to a purge the likes of which the Ravens and Steelers are going through now. But Denver is not done adding players even after the addition of Welker, Terrance Knighton and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and the franchising of left tackle Ryan Clady.
They still want to address pass rusher and will release Elvis Dumervil if he does not take a reduced salary rather than pay him $12 million, with Connor Barwin, Dwight Freeney and Richard Seymour among the potential targets. They still could add depth in the secondary as well, according to a league source.
