Denver Broncos have more reason to hold on to Evero
The Denver Broncos are at risk of losing their defensive coordinator to another team for their head coaching vacancy. The fact that Ejiro Evero has done so well for the Broncos in his first year with the team could end up being bad news.
There is no doubt that it would be awesome to see Evero lead a team as a head coach. That’s being unselfish. Being selfish, I’d like to say that the team absolutely needs to keep Evero on its staff. Sure, a new head coach will come in and possibly want somebody different (his own guy, if you will). That being said, the Broncos’ defense was stellar under Evero.
It would be nice to see the team’s young players continue to develop under the guidance of Evero.
If Evero ends up moving on to bigger things, the Broncos will have to implement a new defense (unless the guy they hire is similar to Evero). That’s just an inconvenience and unless it’s just as good or better, it could end up being an uphill battle for the team.
There’s a big reason Denver Broncos have to hold onto Ejiro Evero.
Typically when a team loses a significant piece, whether it be a player or a coach, they would be compensated by being given a compensatory pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Unfortunately, that’s not always going to be the case.
Take the potential departure of Evero for example. Evero just finished his first season as the defensive coordinator of the Broncos. That means that if he were to land a head coaching job this offseason, the Broncos would not receive a compensatory pick in return for his departure.
At some point, the Broncos will have to prepare for the likelihood of Evero’s departure but given his recent success this season, it’s certainly possible he decides to stick around another year, which would benefit the team in more than one way.
Every Denver Broncos free agent in the 2023 offseason
The Denver Broncos have a bunch of free agents scheduled to hit the market in the 2023 offseason. We take a look through all of them.
It also might not be up to him whether he sticks around or not. The new head coach could decide he wants someone different to take control of the defense. That would give Evero an opportunity to seek a head coaching job. If not, he’ll certainly be in high demand as a defensive coordinator.
