Dekoda Watson Signs with the San Francisco 49ers
The Denver Broncos have lost another player via free agency as the San Francisco 49ers have signed outside linebacker Dekoda Watson.
Another day, another Denver Broncos unrestricted free agent moving to another team.
Dekoda Watson, who played some outside linebacker and special teams, was given a three year deal to play with the San Francisco 49ers.
The deal itself is well deserving for a player like Watson. However, it is a shame that the Broncos will be losing another player via free agency.
It was reported that the Denver Broncos wanted Dekoda back. The 49ers just gave him an offer he could not refuse.
Now Dekoda Watson will move further and compete in the NFC West as the San Francisco 49ers are looking to rebuild and compete again.
Perhpas Dekoda Watson’s biggest moments for the Denver Broncos came during the preseason. His play during those games was perhaps the reason he got a spot on the final roster.
What I find very interesting is that the Denver Broncos have yet to sign any in-house unrestricted free agents.
We have seen players like Watson, Kayvon Webster, and Sylvester Williams sign with other teams. But the Denver Broncos have not signed any UFA’s from their own.
It appears as if the Denver Broncos are looking to start fresh. Then again, they did not have any big key free agents that they would lose.
Plus, the move of Dekoda Watson leaving was set in stone when the Broncos signed Kasim Edebali, the former New Orleans Saints outside linebacker.
With the draft six weeks away, it appears as if the Denver Broncos are preparing for the three day event.
In my opinion, the Broncos biggest need is at the left tackle position.
It is possible that they address that position in the first two days in the draft. Unless they make one final push in free agency in the next few weeks.
Congrats Dekoda Watson. We wish you the best in San Francisco.
