Denver Broncos Offense: Super Bowl 50 vs 2018
2015 roster: Owen Daniels, Virgil Green, Vernon Davis.
2018 offseason roster: Jake Butt, Troy Fumagalli, Jeff Heuerman, Matt LaCosse, Brian Parker, Austin Traylor.
In 2015, the Broncos’ tight ends (Virgil Green, Vernon Davis, Owen Daniels) combined for 891 yards and just four receiving touchdowns. However, that was enough to help the Broncos to Super Bowl 50.
Virgil Green is now an L.A. Charger, while Davis is a Washington Redskin and Daniels is retired.
Now, the Denver Broncos have plenty of bodies in training camp to choose from to fill the position. Jake Butt suffered a major injury during his last game in college, so he has hardly participated in the Broncos’ success. Heuerman also suffered an injury in college but has been able to produce, even if just for 18 catches and 283 yards in two seasons.
Green was not really a pass catching tight end. He was mainly in games to be a blocker.
The Denver Broncos drafted Troy Fumagalli in the 2018 draft and hope he will contribute to the team in his rookie year. I also think Traylor makes the team as a fourth tight end.
