Broncos should call these receivers after KJ Hamler’s injury
Denver Broncos WRs to consider after KJ Hamler injury
4. Keke Coutee (Colts practice squad)
At this point, it’s slightly surprising that Keke Coutee, a young player with 83 receptions in three seasons, is still sitting on some team’s practice squad.
The Houston Texans were certainly willing sellers in the 2021 offseason and we all have reason to believe they remain sellers (more on that in a bit) but Coutee didn’t net them anything in return.
They cut him, and he signed with the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad.
And there on the Colts’ practice squad he remains.
Coutee caught a career-high 33 passes for 400 yards last season with three touchdowns. His catch percentage of 82.5 percent was way up from the low 60s it had been the previous two seasons.
He’s got some experience returning kicks and punts, he’s got a rushing touchdown, and he’s got big-time speed.
The Denver Broncos just lost two of their fastest players on offense with Jeudy and Hamler down, at least for the time being. Coutee could be some nice insurance the rest of the regular season if those guys take longer than anticipated to get back.
