3 realistic options to help fix the Broncos offense in 2022
Three options to help fix the Broncos’ offense
Bring in another reliable pass catcher
Russell Wilson does not seem to trust anyone other than Courtland Sutton, who is on pace to have over 1,400 yards receiving in 2022, which would be a career-high by a long way. Jerry Jeudy is on pace for roughly 800 receiving yards, which is fine for a WR2.
KJ Hamler is getting open, but it’s clear that Wilson is simply not getting him the ball. Perhaps the Broncos should consider bringing in another reliable pass catcher, especially of the tight end variety. The Denver Broncos tight ends have not done much in 2022. Perhaps Greg Dulcich seeing the field when he gets healthy could help, but why not sign Jared Cook?
He’s been one of the most consistent players in the NFL for the better part of 15 years. He’s put up numbers well into his 30s and is a huge red zone threat, which is a key area for Denver to improve on.
Cook has been in the league longer than Russell Wilson and could provide an excellent security blanket for Wilson in the passing game. He’s also good enough to serve as a TE1 on certain teams, and I think Denver is one of them. The Broncos did not do anything of note to replace Tim Patrick, and that’s become very clear on the field after five games.
