Stealing one non-QB from each AFC West team for the Denver Broncos
Cole, who is entering his fourth season, just came off a Pro Bowl and All-Pro season, averaging 50.0 yards per punt.
Having a good punter is an incredibly valuable thing. Good punters can flip the field for the defense, making it that much harder for opposing offenses to score.
If you consider Cole, who averaged 50.0 yards per boot in 2021, playing in Denver, where the air is thinner and the ball travels farther, also considering the solid defense that Denver has, the end result should be a ton of drives starting deep in opposing team’s own territory.
I think this would be a massive thing for the Denver Broncos. Denver’s defense, on paper, is set to be good yet again, and the last thing an opposing offense wants is to have to travel 80+ yards down the field against a tough defense, with tens of thousands of fans screaming their loudest.
Sam Martin has been fine for Denver. Through his two seasons, he’s averaged 46.4 yards per punt, which is very good.
The Denver Broncos have an exciting young duo of tight ends in Greg Dulcich and Albert Okwuegbunam, but where do they rank among the AFC West?
Denver did have some uncertainty with their punting before Martin came along. I do think if Martin has another season like his first two, Denver will extend him.
However, I can’t help but wonder how nice it would be to have an All-Pro punter punting in Denver.
