4 Broncos players that could follow Ed Donatell to the Vikings
Broncos player that could follow Donatell #4: Nate Hairston, CB
For many of the same reasons it might make sense for Ed Donatell to pursue Bryce Callahan, we could see he and the Vikings try and get Nate Hairston to come over after a strong year in Denver as a backup in 2021.
Not only can Hairston come in and contribute on special teams, but he also showed some nice things out of the nickel this past season and he did some great things when the Broncos and Vikings came together for joint practices last Summer.
Hairston is younger than Bryce Callahan and the Broncos obviously liked him under the previous regime. He signed on with the team late in the 2020 season, played in three games, then wound up playing in 16 out of 17 games this past season, breaking up four passes and showing some nice things in the nickel.
He will be 28 next season, so he can still give you plenty for the next 2-3 seasons and he may just now be hitting his stride as a pro.
Again, the Vikings have struggled to find consistency at the cornerback position in recent years and a player like Hairston may be worth taking a gamble on in free agency.
5 reasons the Denver Broncos make sense for Jimmy Garoppolo
The Denver Broncos might ultimately be the best landing spot for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the 2022 NFL offseason. Here are five reasons why.
He’s not going to break the bank, he can play a valuable role on special teams, and you might get a great value here because you aren’t paying for his name at this point. He’s got plenty to prove and if the Vikings could give him an expanded role, this is a fit that could make sense.
