Jake Butt

Hear me out on this one. There is one major reason why I believe the Broncos could cut ties with Jake Butt. It all comes down to injury. The tight end position for the Broncos has been one of the most unluckiest positions for them.

Most of the tight ends that were on the final roster before week one were gone for extended periods of time or gone for the year by the time week 17 rolled around. The Broncos have not seen Jake Butt for the majority of the time he has been here.

Next. Broncos make Brett Rypien, other top UDFA deals official. dark

He was “redshirted” his first season due to recovering from an ACL he suffered in a bowl game. But last season, he tore his ACL after three games. We are entering year three and we have yet to see any huge production for him.

Not his fault by any means. But I believe drafting Noah Fant could be the deciding factor. There could be a possibility if this was the case that Jake Butt could end up on the practice squad since he has not acquired enough full seasons for ineligibility.

Jake Butt is a name that I would be keeping an eye on for the entire offseason program for the Denver Broncos.
