Casey Kreiter Signs Exclusive Rights Tender
By Tylor Walden
The Denver Broncos have been making some moves on special teams. Another important piece has been taken care of as Casey Kreiter is back with Denver.
They say that the long snapper position is relatively quiet unless they make some kind of mistake. Casey Kreiter was a solid member of the Denver Broncos special teams last season. And he decided he wanted to come back and snap to the newest member of the Denver Broncos.
One day after the Broncos agreed to terms with punter Marquette King, Casey Kreiter signed his exclusive rights tender with the team. It will keep him with the Broncos next season.
Casey Kreiter was one of the seven players on the Denver Broncos roster who was given the exclusive rights free agency tenders. Players must sign the tender or risk missing the entire 2018 season.
We all remember Kreiter’s injury in the 2016 season. He played over half the season before his calf injury sidelined him the remainder of the season. Krieter returned in 2017 and played all 16 games.
It will be important to have a player who can help on special teams. The Broncos are looking to improve on the unit after a 2017 season that was just downright awful. Brandon McManus went 24-for-32 on field goals. Riley Dixon was only able to get 23 of his 73 punts pinned inside the 20. And Isaiah McKenzie was horrendous on returns.

Denver relieved Brock Olivio this offseason. Hopefully, Tom McMahon can bring out the best in his team. And perhaps keeping Casey Kreiter will help the Denver Broncos.
Hopefully, the Denver Broncos special teams can get better. But we will not know for sure until the season kicks off in five months.
