While the Denver Broncos do have Noah Fant, the team could utilize a second tight end in the offense and Greg Olsen could be an intriguing fit.
It is time for the Denver Broncos to get back to work. With the Super Bowl champion inside their own division, it proves that the Broncos have a lot to get done in order to compete with the two teams that were in the Super Bowl. One player that could help out from a veteran standpoint is Greg Olsen.
I have not forgotten that Noah Fant is on the roster, but there is no doubt that having a second tight end could really come in handy. It could help improve the offense having two tight end sets. Plus, the Denver Broncos found success with a veteran tight end in the past. Owen Daniels proved to be solid in key situations during the Super Bowl 50 season.
Another reason why this move would make sense is a coach that is currently in Denver right now. Quarterback’s coach Mike Shula was with the Carolina Panthers during Greg Olsen’s best season. He recorded 1,104 yards receiving in 2015.
So, there will be some familiarity between Shula and Olsen. Only problem will be Shula will be the quarterback coach. But it would make some sense. Especially if Shula is helping get Drew Lock ready.
Olsen could also be a mentor to Noah Fant as he looks to become a solid tight end in the National Football League. You can never underestimate the value that a veteran player can give a certain player or the team as a whole.
If this was to happen, the Denver Broncos could be competitive in the 2020 NFL season. Covering two tight ends will not be easy. But I do feel it will take a lot of effort to get him in the door. But it is well worth trying, right?
