Wallace Gilberry, Margus Hunt and Carlos Dunlap are a solid foundation, but Robert Geathers missed nearly the entire season and Dontay Moch was claimed off waivers to be a camp body until he can prove he's a capable 4-3 DE.
A former first-round pick out of Tennessee, Ayers started in 27 of a possible 72 games for the Broncos, including three last season. He also registered a career-high 5.5 sacks last season along with 29 total tackles.
He would be a nice backup behind Dunlap and Hunt or Gilberry. The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys have also expressed interest in Ayers. Pro Football Focus gave him a +8.1 grade, and was their 14th-best DE that played in at least 25% of his team's snaps.
