Punter Riley Dixon is likely on his way out of Denver after the signing of Marquette King. Where will he land? Here are a couple possible destinations.
The Denver Broncos agreed to terms with punter Marquette King on a 3-year deal today, making their punter of the last two seasons, Riley Dixon, expendable.
The signing of King means that the Broncos will likely be looking for trade partners regarding Dixon. Punters can be valuable to teams. There should definitely be some teams who are interested in the third-year pro. Which teams could look into trading for Riley Dixon? Let’s take a look at possible destinations.
It is very unlikely that the Broncos will trade Dixon to a team they play twice a year (division rivals Raiders, Chiefs, Chargers). Also, I do not expect him to go to a team such as the New England Patriots via trade. To me, the likliest scenario would be that the Broncos trade Riley Dixon to a team in the NFC.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers very well could be interested in Dixon’s services. The only other punter they currently have is second-year player Justin Vogel out of Miami (FLA). Dixon could be a fit in Green Bay even for just a training camp/preseason competition to help gain the most out of Vogel.
