Denver Broncos: 5 quarterbacks the team could stash for emergency
5. Kyle Sloter
The perennial preseason star has lit it up for the Broncos, Vikings, and Cardinals in recent years, to the tune of 1,225 passing yards, 13 TD’s, and just one pick. Of course, it’s August football, but his performances have warranted roster spots with 6 teams in the past 5 years. The Northern Colorado product is looking for a new home after an offseason stint with the Raiders.
The 27-year-old QB has solid tools and would be an uncontested lock on the practice squad all year, and his familiarity with Denver is a plus. There was a rash of excitement around his 413-yard, 4 TD performance with the Broncos back in 2017, and while I attribute that more to Peyton Manning withdrawal syndrome than anything else, Sloter is a solid QB4 option with upside.
The Bottom Line
Just this morning there was an erroneous report that the Denver Broncos had picked up Will Grier on waivers, and there have been rumblings that we may look for another depth option like Nick Foles or Gardner Minshew all summer.
Denver Broncos add Mike Ford to further upgrade special teams
The Denver Broncos continue to look for ways to upgrade on special teams, claiming former Detroit Lions defensive back Mike Ford off of waivers.
I believe Denver could be fine this year with Teddy, Drew, and Brett, but considering the unpredictability of football in the age of COVID, I would not be surprised if George Paton & co. spared another of their 16 practice squad spots to make sure we always have an option at QB.
