5 players who may have played their last game with the Denver Broncos
5 Denver Broncos players who may have played their last game with the team.
The 2020 season has come to a conclusion, and so has several players’ time with the Denver Broncos.
Some are unrestricted free agents based on their contract expiring. Others will be let go. That is just the nature of the business.
Free agency and cut day are some of the most difficult days in the world of sports. Sometimes, legends are let go. There are sometimes surprise cuts. That seems to happen basically every single year.
The Broncos, continuing to find their identity, are going to have to make some decisions that won’t be easy. On the other side, it may not be completely up to them when it comes to players leaving.
There are going to be several factors when it comes to this:
1.) Do these players fit the team’s plans for what they want to do going forward?
2.) Have these players done enough to be able to stick around another year?
3.) Are there teams that will offer pending free agents more money than the Broncos this upcoming free agency period?
All three of those questions can be answered with yes or no, and whichever answer you choose really depends on how each free agent is valued by the team or any of the other 31 teams in the league.
The Broncos have a young team for the most part and some will be hitting free agency for the very first time.
Heck, I have not even talked about the players not hitting free agency that could be gone next year.
Well, I’ll give you some names. Read along.
Denver Broncos likely to lose defensive lineman Shelby Harris?
In the photo above, we see Broncos defensive lineman batting a pass down from Patriots quarterback Cam Newton.
That’s honestly my favorite thing about Harris, who is a complete pro at this part of his game. He bats passes down and can block field goal attempts like no other.
The Broncos have a depth-filled defensive line, headlined by Jurrell Casey, Mike Purcell, DeMarcus Walker, and Dre’Mont Jones. Another player who has made a big impact this year was DeShawn Williams.
