As the Denver Broncos try to turn a 10-2 start into a playoff bye, they are doing everything they can to be ready to improve the team if need be.

On Tuesday, they tried out a whopping 17 free agents for possible addition to the team.

Getting tryouts were: defensive backs Stevie Brown, Deveron Carr, Chris Clemons, Antoine Lewis, B.J. Lowery, Mike McMillan, Jeromy Miles, Schon Thomas, and Tyrequek Zimerman; linebackers Deron Bruce, Henry Coley, Aaron Davis, Adrian Hubbard, and Kevin Snyder; defensive tackles Davon Coleman and Kamal Johnson; and defensive end Ray Drew.

The 17-man, all-defensive tryout comes one week after the Broncos tried out 16 offensive players.
