3 bargain free agents the Denver Broncos could still try to sign
Denver Broncos bargain FA no. 3: Will Fuller, WR (Dolphins)
One free agent that many in Broncos Country may not have considered up to this point is free agent wide receiver Will Fuller.
It’s understandable that the former first-round pick would not be on the radar for most people, at this point. He has a lengthy injury history and is coming off of a season with the Miami Dolphins in which his contributions were next to nothing.
Still, the former Houston Texans star is just 27 and is one of the most proven deep threats in the NFL when he’s healthy. He has 213 career receptions and 24 of them have been for touchdowns. Additionally, 141 have been for first downs and Fuller’s career has been loaded with plays of 40-plus yards.
More than 10 percent of this guy’s career receptions have been touchdowns.
Although the Denver Broncos have a pretty solidified top four at the wide receiver position, they could certainly find a handful of snaps each week for Will Fuller to come in and make an impact.
Russell Wilson has been one of the best deep-ball throwers in the NFL since he came into the league in 2012 and there’s no doubt that Will Fuller could thrive as a complementary target in this Denver Broncos passing game.
The issue, of course, is price. What kind of price would Fuller command? He wasn’t exactly a bargain last year for the Dolphins at over $10 million but the league is obviously showing Fuller that it’s time for a prove-it deal.
Denver Broncos 4 free agents to sign after solidifying offensive line
The Denver Broncos signed Billy Turner to solidify their offensive line, filling the right tackle spot. Which free agents should be up next for this team?
He could probably get more snaps with another team but considering some of the issues the Denver Broncos had in 2021 with depth at receiver, I would not hate to see George Paton add Fuller to the roster at all.
