Denver Broncos: 3 free-agent wide receivers team could still have interest in
The Denver Broncos have addressed multiple positions of need in free agency, but the team could still use a wide receiver.
It seems likely that the Broncos will use an early pick on the wide receiver position in the draft and could select more than one wide receiver in the seven-round process. It is a deep draft at that position and the team currently has 12 picks.
But there are also some veteran options that exist on the free-agent market and if nothing else, could be brought in to add experience and push the younger group.
Courtland Sutton is a stud, but he is really the only sure thing the Broncos currently have at wide receiver.
The team would love to see DaeSean Hamilton step up and make some plays and there is room for him to do so. He has had two quiet seasons since joining the team but he finished last season on a good note, catching 11 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown in the team’s final two games.
Tim Patrick is another guy the team seems to believe in but he only has 39 career receptions.
Beyond those three guys, the team has a lot of guys who could chip in here and there, but no one that the team likely wants to rely on any more than it has to, unless last year’s sixth-round pick, Juwann Winfree, steps up in a big way.
Diontae Spencer is mostly a return man and the likes of Fred Brown, Trinity Benson and Kelvin McKnight will be hard-pressed to make the final roster.
Free agency started over a week ago and these three players are still looking for a contract. If the Broncos could get them to agree to affordable terms, each of them could provide some value.
