The Denver Broncos’ trio of Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and Tim Patrick, are three receivers who can make some history in 2022.

The trio of Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and Tim Patrick is going to be lethal in 2022.  While the NFL landscape largely recognizes the talent that the team has at receiver, it still feels like they’re underrated.

With Russell Wilson now under center, the Denver Broncos offense should end up being a top unit in the NFL.

Sure, it’s going to be nice to watch an offense score a ton of points in 2022, but there’s one piece of history that the three receivers can make that’s only been done five times in NFL history, and not since 2008.

A trio of 1,000-yard wide receivers, something that sounds very hard, and yeah, it is.

Many teams have come close to accomplishing this feat.  Obviously, it takes an incredible crew of receivers to be able to all accumulate 1,000 yards.

I would even say it’s hard in general for wide receivers to hit this mark.  However, the potential to not only have two, but three receivers do this is an amazing thought to think about.

If I had to bet on whether or not this would happen, I don’t think I could make that bet, but the opportunity is there.

We can expect the Denver Broncos to throw the ball a bit more than they have in prior seasons.

We can expect Head Coach Nathaniel Hackett to tailor the offense to Wilson’s strengths, and Russell Wilson has put up a ton of exceptional numbers during his career, generally on teams that prioritize the run.

I think the Denver Broncos’ offense is going to explode in 2022, and the three-headed monster of wide receivers is going to be a big reason for that.

One could argue that Sutton, Jeudy, and Patrick could all serve as WR1s on certain teams.

Jerry Jeudy has been given a bit more attention this offseason as someone who could break out in year three, and Courtland Sutton already has a Pro Bowl, 1,100-yard season under his belt back in 2019 when Joe Flacco, Brandon Allen, and Drew Lock were his primary quarterbacks.

I’ve said this before–I do think many within Broncos Country are afraid to set too high expectations for the team.  Sure, it might take some time before the team has as much chemistry as reasonably possible, but the talent, depth, and work ethic is there.
