4 players the Broncos were right to move on from in 2022
DaeSean Hamilton, Wide receiver
It’s certainly a shame that DaeSean Hamilton didn’t work out for the team, because it looked like a great pick when the Broncos chose him in the fourth round of the 2018 draft.
But Hamilton never saw a lot of time on the field and posted pedestrian numbers as a wide receiver as a result.
Last offseason, reports emerged that the Broncos were looking to trade the young wideout. If they were unable to find a trade partner, he was set to be released. Then last May, Hamilton tore his ACL and was shut down for the season.
The Broncos held onto his roster spot by placing him on the reserve/non-football injury list one day after he cleared waivers. But this March, the team chose to part ways with him.
Hamilton caught 81 passes for 833 yards and five touchdowns in 46 games with the team. He flashed signs of being an asset in the future but the consistency was just never there.
Hamilton will get a chance to revive his career with the Houston Texans, who signed him after he was released by Denver.
