The mark of a good team is when the special teams feels complete. Marquette King’s arrival signals this unit is headed in that direction.
King is a top-five punter and has the strongest leg in the league. Adding him to kick in the Mile High altitude is a dream for him and will be a dream to watch in Training Camp.
Brandon McManus was one of the underrated MVPs of the Super Bowl season. He became a weapon hitting kickoffs seemingly all the way to Fort Collins and out of the endzone. Also, he was consistent in the 50-yard field goals and short yardage.
Short yardage became a problem for McManus in 2018. It should not be that way since short field goals equate to chip shots.
Punt returner is the biggest question of the unit and near the top of the overall Broncos checklist issues in Training Camp.
Isaiah McKenzie is lightning in a bottle, but muffed punts brought back memories of Trindon Holliday.
The competition with Phillip Lindsay will become a potential deciding factor to a roster spot, in my opinion. But there’s chances the team can keep both. If the Denver Broncos do, then there is a chance for a well-rounded special teams unit.
