Well, rather than hitting the free agent market this off-season, it looks like Darian Stewart will be staying in Denver for a little longer.
The 28-year old free safety agreed to a contract extension with the Denver Broncos earlier this afternoon. The contract is estimated to be worth about $28 million ($17.5M guaranteed) over the next four years.

In 10 starts for Denver this season, Stewart has recorded 44 combined tackles and three picks (including two in a 25-23 win over New Orleans two weeks ago). Prior to his stint with Denver, which began in 2015, Stewart spent four seasons in St. Louis and one in Baltimore.
