4 players that stood out on Day 1 of Denver Broncos training camp
Denver Broncos Day 1 standout no. 2: Eric Saubert, TE
Opportunity abounds for backup tight ends with the Denver Broncos at this particular point in time.
With Greg Dulcich getting worked back into the mix slowly, players like Eric Saubert have a real shot at making some noise in training camp.
And Saubert wasted no time making said noise.
Getting some early chemistry going with Russell Wilson is great news for a player like Eric Saubert.
Saubert was essentially a camp body last year who worked his way onto the active roster and not only that, but he also became a pretty integral part of the team both on offense and on special teams.
The ability to play on both of those units will once again be an advantage for Saubert, who was also at the most recent throwing session at Russell Wilson’s San Diego chalet.
If Saubert is gaining the favor of the coaching staff, the star quarterback, and making plays in training camp? Look out.
I’m not saying he’s going to take over as the team’s TE1 or anything like that, but the Broncos definitely need someone consistently making plays at that position and the competition is wide open.
Albert Okwuegbunam is the favorite to be the team’s TE1 but his job is up for grabs. As of OTAs, the Greg Dulcich hype train was out of control and he ended up suffering a hamstring injury that kind of slowed the hype down a bit.
After Day 1 of Denver Broncos training camp, it sounds like Saubert was the one cashing in on the looks he was given in red zone work.
