The Denver Broncos made some moves before the start of their offseason program on Tuesday by signing ERFA’s Dymonte Thomas and Elijah Wilkinson.
With the team’s offseason program beginning this week, the Denver Broncos made sure to take care of a little business regarding their own players before the program began.
The team agreed to terms with two of their Exclusive Rights Free Agents. Dymonte Thomas and Elijah Wilkinson will remain with the Denver Broncos at least for another year. According to Pro Football Talk, both players were expected to sign before the program began.
Both players could play big roles in this upcoming season. The team is focusing on key needs and both Dymonte Thomas and Elijah Wilkinson, who play safety and tackle respectfully, could benefit and help out new head coach Vic Fangio.
Both players do show a lot of promise. Dymonte Thomas was mostly used on special teams, but did have some contributions on defense as he recorded a sack and an interception during the 2018 season. This despite only a limited number of snaps.
For Elijah Wilkinson, he could become a factor in the offensive line even though the team signed Ju’Wuan James in the offseason. Wilkinson started seven games at the guard position last season, most likely due to the injury bug last season to Ron Leary and Matt Paradis.
It will all come down to how the remaining offseason goes for both of these players. But in my opinion, they both have a real legitimate chance of making the roster as of this writing. They both have experience with the team and have a bit of potential.
Look for both Dymonte Thomas and Elijah Wilkinson during the 2019 training camp and preseason games, they might turn some heads. If they do that, Vic Fangio might have roles for them in 2019.
