The Denver Broncos made a couple of big moves to re-sign wide receivers Tim Patrick and Courtland Sutton. Who still needs to be re-signed for 2022?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about a handful of players on the Denver Broncos’ roster I thought the team should consider re-signing ASAP, and lo and behold, they took advantage of the bye week, signing wide receivers Tim Patrick and Courtland Sutton to extensions.

With a couple of those players still in the category of players the team should re-sign, I want to take a look through a few more guys that should be re-signed in 2022 based on what they’ve brought to the team lately, but these would be more underrated moves.

After a loss is not really the greatest time to be talking about re-signing players, but for players the Broncos will likely part ways with after this season, you can check out this post.

Denver Broncos could retain some underrated players for 2022

1. Bryce Callahan, cornerback

Yes, the Broncos should re-sign Bryce Callahan despite his injury history.

He already signed for a bargain price, then took a pay cut. He will not be able to command more than a one- or two-year deal from his next team and if Vic Fangio is around, I think this is a no-brainer.

If Fangio leaves, we may see Callahan go with him.

Again, if Fangio stays in Denver, Callahan plays the slot as well as any corner in the league when he’s healthy.

Yes, make all the jokes you want about his inability to stay healthy. The fact remains, when this guy is on the field, he can lock players down.

It would be amazing to see the Denver Broncos retain the majority of their secondary for the 2022 season if at all possible.
