Broncos, Aldon Smith had mutual interest before pass rusher signed with Cowboys

9 News

The Broncos were among several teams who expressed interest in Aldon Smith before the oft-troubled, mega-talented edge rusher signed with the Dallas Cowboys last week, league sources told 9NEWS.

There was mutual interest between Smith and the Broncos as head coach Vic Fangio was his defensive coordinator during the outside linebacker’s best years in San Francisco, and he’s been good friends with Broncos’ star Von Miller since they were both first-round picks in the 2011 Draft.

The Broncos made a vet-minimum/incentive-laden offer to Smith, although it fell well short of the deal he got from the Cowboys.
