NFL Free Agency 2023: Broncos and Falcons Make Big Moves
In the first day of NFL free agency 2023, the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons made big moves to bolster their rosters.
The Broncos signed veteran cornerback Richard Sherman to a one-year deal worth $4 million. Sherman, who was released by the San Francisco 49ers earlier this month, brings a wealth of experience and leadership to the Broncos secondary.
Meanwhile, the Falcons added depth to their running backs group by drafting Alabama standout Brian Robinson Jr. with the 21st overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
The Falcons have been looking to upgrade their running game after finishing last in the league in rushing yards per game in 2022. Robinson Jr., who rushed for over 1,000 yards in his senior year at Alabama, is expected to compete for the starting job alongside Mike Davis.
The Falcons also signed wide receiver Aaron Burbridge to a three-year deal worth $12 million. Burbridge, who was previously with the San Francisco 49ers, is known for his speed and agility on the field.
Other notable free agency moves on day one include the Los Angeles Rams signing safety Jimmie Ward to a three-year deal worth $19 million, and the Pittsburgh Steelers signing linebacker Eric Kendricks to a two-year deal worth $12 million.
The 2023 NFL free agency period is expected to be one of the most active in recent years, with several big-name players still available on the market. Fans will be eager to see which teams make the biggest moves in the coming days and weeks.
