Denver Broncos: Ranking the top 7 moves of the 2019 offseason
4. Signing Bryce Callahan
Entering the free agency period, many fans thought it was only logical that one or more of Vic Fangio’s players in Chicago would follow him to Denver.
It really came down to two prime candidates at positions of need for the Broncos with safety Adrian Amos and cornerback Bryce Callahan.
Though the Broncos apparently were interested in Amos, they ended up signing Kareem Jackson instead, and just when everyone thought the idea or dream of signing Callahan was impossible, the Broncos brought him in on a three-year deal.
Callahan’s inclusion in the defense changes what the Broncos can do drastically.
Hopefully, Chris Harris Jr. will return at some point, and the Broncos will have a star-studded group of cornerbacks with the underdog mentality and a physicality at the position from three guys unlike any other team in the league.
Callahan is one of the only players in the NFL whose production as a slot corner is up there with Harris’, and the Broncos aren’t going to limit him there, either.
Callahan can work in as an outside corner at times, but the Broncos will likely use Harris, Isaac Yiadom, and Kareem Jackson out there more than anyone else.
Callahan manning the slot allows Harris to move outside, giving the Broncos their best group in the secondary since the No Fly Zone was assembled in 2014.
