It sounds like Denver Broncos receiver/kick returner Trey Quinn had a strong first day of training camp.
The Denver Broncos have some open spots at the wide receiver position. Those spots will be taken over the next couple of weeks by players that have earned it. It’s only day one of training camp but it sounds like we have someone taking an early lead.
Fifth-year receiver Trey Quinn appears to have had a solid first day of training camp, according to Benjamin Allbright of Broncos Country Tonight.
Coming from a person such as Benjamin Allbright, this is something to keep an eye on as training camp progresses.
Quinn was the last pick in the 2018 NFL Draft by the then-Washington Redskins. He spent two seasons there before moving on to Jacksonville and then Las Vegas. In his first year in the league, Quinn had 75 receiving yards and one touchdown on nine receptions.
He had an improved second season, with Washington, playing in six games and catching 26 passes for 198 yards and a touchdown.
During training camp, Quinn is competing with the likes of Kendall Hinton, Seth Williams, Tyrie Cleveland, and Travis Fulgham.
For his career, Quinn has returned 21 punts for 136 yards, including a career-high 31-yard return. Quinn ran the 40-yard dash at 4.55 seconds.
Per Quinn’s scouting report on NFL.com…
"“Give him choice routes to work with and he will set them up and knock them down all day. He’s not going to be a good tester, but he’s built like a running back and has better strength than most slots.” – NFC College Scouting Director"
There could be an interesting role for Quinn on the offensive side of the ball if he makes the team. With Russell Wilson leading the way, maybe Quinn could be used in ways that we don’t often see.
Denver Broncos general manager George Paton and head coach Nathaniel Hackett met the media ahead of training camp. What were the top takeaways?
Currently, Hinton is listed at both returner spots. It sounds like Quinn has a real chance of making a strong push to steal that job at some point and it appears he may have gotten off to a good start.
