The Denver Broncos continued their free agency moves by bringing back another one of their own free agents. Zach Kerr gives the defense some stability.
According to reports, the Denver Broncos have signed another in-house free agent in Zach Kerr. The team has agreed to a two year deal that will keep Kerr in a Broncos uniform until the 2021 season. Back in 2017, the Denver Broncos were able to sign Kerr in free agency after his two years with the Indianapolis Colts.
Zach Kerr has recorded 116 tackles, 7.5 sacks, and four passes defended in his short time in the NFL. He has recorded at least one pass defended in his first two years with the Denver Broncos. He brings stability to a Denver Broncos defensive line that truly needs it.
Why does the team need the stability? The defensive line of the Denver Broncos is not strong in the middle. The team did bring Shelby Harris back on a second round tender, but there are still some answers that need to be made on the defensive line.
Having Zach Kerr back in the mix helps create some outside push since he plays defensive end. But Kerr is no stranger to defensive tackle as well. If needed, he could play that position as well.
With his familiarity in Denver, he could thrive well in the Vic Fangio system. How much of an individual game he plays will depend on his performance and the players in front of him. He should play a huge part in the run defense. The team thrived in run defense during the 2018 season, minus one game.
Having a familiar face back should help create a chemistry for the team. Kerr should also be a solid backup in case anything were to happen with Derek Wolfe or Adam Gotsis. It is great to see an in-house free agent return. Hopefully, Zach Kerr can provide some much needed stability to the defensive line of the Denver Broncos.
