Denver Broncos In-House receivers that could replace Tim Patrick: Kendall Hinton
We joke about Denver Broncos receiver Kendall Hinton being a “Hall of Fame quarterback” and that is quite funny. The thing is, Hinton could actually be a hero for the team in the wake of Tim Patrick’s injury.
Hinton isn’t a flashy player but he can get the job done. He caught 15 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown for the Broncos in 2021.
Despite being on the shorter side for a wide receiver, Hinton was a pretty nice piece for the Broncos’ offense.
Before training camp, there were questions about whether or not Hinton would make the team. Some did view him as a potentially difficult player to cut.
He isn’t one of the top receivers on the squad (Courtland Sutton, Patrick, Jeudy, Hamler), but has been strongly in the mix to land the fifth or sixth spot at the wide receiver position.
If Patrick is out an extended period of time, I can see the Broncos trying to sprinkle in quite a few plays for Hinton during training camp, giving him a strong possibility of making the team.
