With Denver agreeing to terms with former Indianapolis defensive tackle Darrell Reid, the team has now signed seven free agents in the first 36-plus hours of free agency.

To put the Broncos' wild spree in perspective, the other three AFC West teams haven't signed any players.

Sure, Oakland is sniffing around tackles Khalif Barnes and Marvel Smith; San Diego is thinking about bringing back cornerback Drayton Florence after a year's detour to Jacksonville and Kansas City traded for New England linebacker Mike Vrabel. But the only inking going on thus far in this division is coming out of the Rocky Mountains.

None of the names Denver has signed so far will overwhelm you but the new regime, led by coach Josh McDaniels, is trying to create competition and depth.

Here is a recap of the players Denver has agreed to deals with so far:

Houston Texans receiver David Anderson (restricted offer sheet); Arizona Cardinals running back J.J. Arrington; Philadelphia Eagles running back Correll Buckhalter: New England Patriots receiver Jabar Gaffney; Miami Dolphins safety Renaldo Hill; New England Patriots long snapper Lonie Paxton and Indianapolis' Reid.

The team is also trying to finalize deals with Philadelphia safety Brian Dawkins and Cleveland linebacker Andra Davis. Dawkins would certainly be the big catch of the group and if Denver is going to finalize the deal, it could come at any time.
