There are so many phenomenal personalities, a likely quarterback battle and the Broncos are still one of the premier franchises in all of the National Football League. Since Hard Knocks first kicked off, back in 2001, the Broncos have won the AFC West six times, earned two AFC Championships and notably won Super Bowl 50. And really, it’s a shame the last time much of the national audience saw the orange and blue on their screens was in February of 2016, five years ago.
Why it makes sense In the search for players that can add depth and experience to the secondary, Breeland brings both. He wouldn’t become an instant starter, but he would provide a veteran presence in the secondary rotation. A health Bryce Callahan means the rest of the secondary can work on a rotation that favors the hot hand, kind of like RB by committee.
The more the shellshock of John Elway stepping “up” and away from the personnel decisions with the Broncos and the clearer it becomes just how perfect a time it was for a new GM. George Paton made a second big move of his tenure today, cutting Jurrell Casey to save the Broncos nearly $11.9 million toward the salary cap. He also cut A.J. Bouye this offseason, saving Denver a total of $23.6 million.
