The Broncos, meanwhile, may be bracing for star receiver Demaryius Thomas to hold out if they cannot reach a long-term deal before Wednesday's deadline.
Is there reason to connect the dots?
I asked Twitter, and the results were mixed.
At the time of this writing, about 60 percent were opposed to signing Wayne, 31 percent were in favor, and the remaining 9 percent suggested something along the lines of a maybe.

@JonHeathNFL I'll pass, just pay DT and let's ride.— Unwavering Loyalty (@JastorONeal) July 14, 2015
@JonHeathNFL for the 3rd down value alone yes— Steven O'Reilly (@SteveOReilly) July 14, 2015
@JonHeathNFL nah. Don't need another reason to stunt Latimer's growth.— Bryan B (@BBofLA) July 14, 2015
@JonHeathNFL Absolutely He can be 4th WR Play all 3 WR positions Great Red zone option Can teach the young guys especially if 88 holds out— Mike Shope (@utvols1637) July 14, 2015
@JonHeathNFL and let DT walk? ... Not such a bad idea— John Q (@ColoradoJohnQ) July 14, 2015
@JonHeathNFL No. See you in the hall of fame next Reggie— David Kromelow (@dkrom59) July 14, 2015

@JonHeathNFL That's like asking how long a piece of string is; it depends. For the right price if we get an injury in camp or preseason.— Sobey 310 (@ButtFumblerr) July 14, 2015
@flavio_maciel @JonHeathNFL I'd go with no. Latimer, Sanders, DT, Fowler, Norwood, etc. They are already in good shape and Elway wants youth— Emmett Smith (@alloverfatman) July 14, 2015
@JonHeathNFL Never hurts to bring someone to camp to take a look.— Mike W (@KStater91) July 14, 2015
What do you think of Wayne? Is he worth taking a flier on, or not worth Denver's time?
