Denver Broncos need more Bryce Callahan

Don’t be mistaken: That headline above is not suggesting Bryce Callahan has been bad for the Broncos. It just simply means that we want to see more.

For the Broncos in 2020, Callahan recorded 42 tackles, and two interceptions, while breaking up five passes.

The Broncos could be in the cornerback market this offseason through the 2021 NFL draft as well as free agency. A.J. Bouye will miss some time in 2021 due to a suspension, making Callahan’s role even bigger and more important.

What I’m getting at here is that the more Callahan gets thrown at, the better he can be. Therefore, there are more chances for him to make big plays.

It is also worth noting that Callahan has been in Fangio’s system for a number of years now.

Callahan has been around the NFL since 2015 and is a solid cornerback. It’s just a question of whether or not he can go an extended period of time without getting himself injured. Unfortunately, despite signing in 2019, he’s only played in 10 games for the Broncos — all coming in 2020.

Callahan can play multiple positions on the defensive side of the ball, including nickel cornerback and on the outside. Having that versatility will come in handy going forward.

Callahan will be an unrestricted free agent following the 2021 season but if he can lock up a contract extension, I can see him becoming a productive player if the team ends up in the playoffs later down the road.

When he is on the field, he is a solid cornerback.
