What De’Vante Bausby can bring to the Denver Broncos
With the Alliance of American Football suspended, the Denver Broncos have brought in San Antonio Commanders cornerback De’Vante Bausby. What does he bring?
It appears as if the Denver Broncos are not done looking for some help in the secondary. The team already signed Bryce Callahan from free agency. Now they have added De’Vante Bausby from the recently suspended Alliance of American Football, who played for the San Antonio Commanders.
It truly is a sad story hearing that the Alliance of American Football suspending operations. Myself personally, I have not had the chance to see a complete game of the new league. Hopefully they are able to figure things out on their end. But it looks like it could very well be the end with just a little under a year into the operation.
Because of the suspension of the league, NFL teams were allowed to sign those league players. The Denver Broncos decided to take advantage and signed Bausby, who was having quite a season during his time with the San Antonio Commanders.
Bausby spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs, Chicago Bears, and Philadelphia Eagles before signing in the AAF. He made a lot of noise during the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine when he recorded a 37.5 vertical jump.
I believe that Bausby will bring some much needed depth for the Denver Broncos secondary. While the team does have Chris Harris Jr., Kareem Jackson, and Bryce Callahan, he could be a solid addition to the team.
He truly does have the potential there. He was tied for the league lead in interceptions during the Alliance of American Football’s run with four of them. He also recorded a pick two this season, running back a two point conversion for two points for the Commanders.
I am excited to see how Vic Fangio can make the most out of his potential. Should be a very intriguing pick up.
