Denver Broncos: 5 players who have given team next to nothing this season
It has been a disappointing season for the Denver Broncos, even if the team currently sits at .500.
The Broncos are 4-4, but the bad taste is still in the mouths of most fans despite a win last Sunday over the Washington Football Team. The Broncos are still very much mathematically alive for the playoffs this season but there isn’t a lot of excitement floating around and that is because the team is frankly just not very good.
Predictions for the rest of the season have been made and we have the team finishing 7-10. Some wouldn’t even have them finishing that well.
The team has gotten good performances out of several players, while others have left something to be desired. Then, you have the players on this list, who have meant almost nothing to the team this season for one reason or another.
Whether it be due to injury or just a lack of productivity, these players have done next to nothing for the Broncos this season.
Mike Boone, Running back
General manager George Paton brought in Mike Boone, whom he was familiar with from their time together with the Minnesota Vikings, as a free-agent signing in March. He has long been lauded for his special teams play and it seemed he could be a great No. 3 back.
His addition also basically signaled the end for Phillip Lindsay in Denver.
An injury sidelined Boone to start the season and he just has never really caught up and had a chance to mesh with the team. He has suited up in just two games and has one reception for three yards.
There are still nine games for him to turn things around and join a backfield that quite frankly has been pretty average. If he can’t, this signing and the subsequent loss of Lindsay look worse by the week.
