Latest Broncos rumors and news
By: Jake Rajala
The Denver Broncos have arguably had more intense news than every other NFL team over the past 24 hours. The Broncos witnessed their young, talented wide receiver Jerry Jeudy get arrested yesterday and charged with second-degree criminal tampering related to a domestic violence case. Today, the victim has asked the judge to dismiss the case against Jeudy, per The Denver Post.
Outside of Jeudy’s predicament, the Broncos have a fascinating schedule. The Broncos play in the wild AFC West, but they will have a modest mountain to climb. The Russell Wilson-led team will have the 15th most challenging schedule next season. They will also play the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, which will be a very exciting show-down for many reasons: different location, a unique culture, and London will create more NFL fans with two squads in town.
The Super Bowl contending Broncos could still add more FA talent with their 12th-ranked cap space. Outside of signing Randy Gregory and D.J. Jones in the early stages of FA, they recently brought back Melvin Gordon. Per 24/7 Sports, Gordon (918 rushing yds and 8 touchdowns in 2021) and Javonte Williams will share carries in the 2022 season. It would also make sense if the Broncos inked a FA CB, too. After they added the former 49ers CB K’Wuan Williams, it was clear that the Broncos should keep the gas on the pedal to ink another quality CB.
It may make sense for the Broncos and Kyle Fuller to reunite, as he would probably return hungrier than last season. Trae Waynes, Janoris “Jackrabbit” Jenkins, Joe Haden, James Bradberry, and Xavier Rhodes are also smart options for the Broncos. I would expect them to bring back Fuller or sign an underrated veteran CB like Jackrabbit.
