Winners and losers from Nathaniel Hackett hire

Loser: Bobby Massie

Bobby Massie might be an underrated loser from this hire. The Denver Broncos quickly requested to interview Packers OL coach and run game coordinator Adam Stenavich for the offensive coordinator position.

Stenavich did a tremendous job in Green Bay this season and would be an excellent addition to the staff.

As the offensive line coach, he’d surely love if a player or two followed him from Green Bay.

One that could be likely is pending free agent Dennis Kelly, who played in 10 games for Green Bay this season at right tackle.

If I remember correctly, the Broncos were interested in signing Kelly when Ja’Wuan James went down, but Kelly apparently wanted too much money for the Broncos’ liking, so they signed Bobby Massie and Cameron Fleming instead.

Massie filled in very nicely at right tackle for the Denver Broncos this season, but he could be dumped in favor of Kelly, especially if the team hires Stenavich.

Kelly has stops in Philadelphia and Tennessee and is in the same tier as Massie.

He isn’t great, but he’s solid, and the familiarity with Stenavich could benefit Kelly in Denver.
