Broncos miss on Brandon Meriweather
By Bill Williamson
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Washington Redskins have landed safety Brandon Meriweather.
Denver is looking for a veteran safety with Brian Dawkins considering retirement. Meriweather did visit with Denver. The Broncos also visited with Cleveland’s Mike Adams.
Schefter reports former Seattle cornerback Marcus Trufant will visit the Broncos on Friday.
The Broncos have otherwise been quiet in free agency -- despite having $38 million in cap room -- as they wait for Peyton Manning to make a decision.
Meanwhile, San Diego's four-year deal with left tackle Jared Gaither includes an $8 million signing bonus. His 2012 contract is fully guaranteed.
