Denver Broncos Bolster Secondary: Sign Quentin Jammer

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos signed former San Diego Chargers cornerback Quentin Jammer on Wednesday. As they have done consistently under the leadership of John Elway, the Broncos see a need and they address it.

After losing out on Charles Woodson, the Broncos moved quickly to fill the need. Some people may ask what the need was exactly given the fact that the Broncos appear to be loaded, but the reason they were looking at Woodson was to cover opposing tight ends, an area where the Broncos defense has struggled greatly in recent years.

Woodson, as everyone knows by now, wanted more money than the Broncos were willing to pay and he ended up signing with the Oakland Raiders. Elway moved on to plan B which in this case was the signing of Jammer. We’ve said it over and over again, but the point cannot be made enough; Elway has a plan and he sticks to it.

That plan is simple; identify a need area and address it. If the first plan does not work, don’t overpay. Just move onto the second part of the plan and solve the need. It’s such a simple concept, but it’s one that so many personnel people just do not get. Elway now has a PhD in that concept. If you are a Broncos fan, you simply cannot ask for anything more from your team. They see a need and they fix it within their budget.

As for Jammer, a few people have already asked me what his role will be. Will he be a cornerback as he has been his whole career or will he make the move to safety where the Broncos need help? My answer is both; he will probably float between cornerback and safety.

Defensive coordinator, Jack Del Rio will move him around depending on the situation. As stated earlier, Jammer’s primary assignment will be to take away the tight end as an option in the passing game. If he can do that, then the Broncos defense just a lot better.

Jammer has already made it known that he is ready to work and will probably be with the Broncos as soon as Thursday’s workout. Just when you think the Broncos’ offseason can’t get any better, it does. Jammer is not a major signing, but it fills a need which is something Elway continues to do better than anyone else in the league.

Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
