If George Paton picks up the option for one or both, they will be under contract for the 2020 season. If he doesn’t, they’ll become unrestricted free agents. If this cut happens, they could sign with another team immediately instead of waiting for March 17th, which is what we recently saw with J.J. Watt after his release from the Texans.
When John Elway and the Denver Broncos let Shaquil Barrett hit free agency in 2019, it was a hotly contested decision. It still is. As of now, there’s a chance the former Broncos edge could return to the Mile High city if he hits free agency.
In fact, Patrick narrowly missed out on tying Jeudy for the lead in receptions with 51 on the season. However, despite Patrick's 742 receiving yards falling more than 100 shy of Jeudy's, the veteran was a significantly more efficient and reliable target. Patrick was targeted 79 times, catching 51 (64.6%) while Jeudy was targeted a whopping 113 times, catching 52 (46.0%).
