Bryce Callahan, CB
The Broncos and Callahan were a match from the very start.
Callahan was an undrafted free agent of the Chicago Bears in 2015, and he’s grown under Vic Fangio and Ed Donatell over the past four years into one of the best nickel cornerbacks in football.
He signed a three-year deal with the Broncos worth $21 million and $10 million guaranteed.
Why did he choose Denver?
"“There were a couple of teams involved in the second wave of free agency. The Broncos were always my top pick because of [Head Coach Vic] Fangio and [Defensive Coordinator] Ed [Donatell]. I felt comfortable in this system. I’ve been playing with them for a couple of years. I feel like I won’t have to be learning a whole new system. I can just get in and go. That’s kind of why I chose here. Denver is a nice place. I had some friends play for the Broncos and they had nothing but good things to say. It wasn’t really a hard decision.”"
So for Callahan, this was as much about scheme fit and coaching fit as anything else.
Also, huge shoutout to Jordan Taylor, who unfortunately wasn’t retained by the Broncos this offseason but obviously has nothing but good things to say about the team.
Denver is a great place and this situation for Callahan worked out beautifully.
