Denver Broncos: DaeSean Hamilton let go after failed trade talks
The Denver Broncos have moved on from wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton.
According to Mike Garofolo of NFL Network, the team is waiving Hamilton after failed attempts at trading him.
The former fourth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft that just did not do enough to stick around longer, especially with the return of Courtland Sutton and the emergence of Tim Patrick, Jerry Jeudy, and K.J. Hamler.
Denver also drafted a wide receiver in the 2021 NFL Draft in Seth Williams, who probably has just had his chances of making the 53-man roster increased by a good percentage. The writing was on the wall after the move to select Williams out of Auburn.
During his time with the Denver Broncos, Hamilton caught 81 passes for 833 yards and five touchdowns.
In his rookie season, Hamilton saw time on the offensive side of the ball on 44 percent (471) of the team’s snaps. In all of 2019, his percentage jumped all the way to 64 percent (653 snaps) and in 2020, Hamilton went down again to 534 snaps (50 percent).
As Garofolo acknowledges in his report, Hamilton is surely going to be snatched up at some point. With it being prior to teams getting in minicamp and training camp work, Hamilton might be able to hook on to a team soon.
That, or he may have to wait until some injuries start to pile up. We know that is going to happen at some point.
It is unfortunate that the Broncos were unable to actually get something for Hamilton in a trade. That is always the more ideal way of moving on from a player.
Now it is up to the like of Seth Williams and Tyrie Cleveland to try and make a name for themselves. It will be a fun battle to pay attention to when training camp gets underway.
