The Denver Broncos were burnt in the Super Bowl a little more than 2 months ago.

The Broncos lose 43-8. But the Broncos hope that if they meet again in Super Bowl XLXIX in Arizona, the defense will be better.

That started with the signing of corner back Aqib Talib to a massive six-year, $57 million dollar contract. This contract includes $26 million dollar in guaranteed money.

This is the second signing on the First Day of free agent for the Broncos secondary. Earlier in the day, the Broncos added T.J. Ward, formerly of the Cleveland Browns.

Talib, who is 28-years-old, matured while with the New England Patriots. And when he is healthy, he is one of the top five press corners in the game.

With Champ Bailey being released, the Broncos are expected to use Talib against No. 1 wide receivers now. Bailey was used against No. 1 wide receivers in nearly all of his 10-years in Denver.

The Broncos are also expected to sign defensive end DeMarcus Ware in the coming days. Ware was released by the Dallas Cowboys earlier in the day.

With Ward, Talib, and potentially Ware in the fold, the Broncos are bulking up their roster for one more Super Bowl run. With a lot of salary cap space with many players on rookie deals and Peyton Manning only having one-year to possibly a second year, the Broncos time is now to win.
