Denver Broncos roster outlook

  • QB — Russell Wilson
  • RB — Javonte Williams, Melvin Gordon, Mike Boone
  • WR — Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, K.J. Hamler
  • TE — Albert Okwuegbunam, Greg Dulcich

The acquisition of Russell Wilson changes the dynamics big time for Denver as this team looks to contend with the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. He’s an obvious upgrade over every quarterback that they’ve had since Peyton Manning’s retirement.

Typically, we’d say that these Broncos have legit weapons for Wilson. However, it’s not yet known how the Jerry Jeudy situation is going to play out after he was arrested on domestic violence charges.

Defensively, the Broncos paid big bucks to sign edge rusher Randy Gregory from the Dallas Cowboys in free agency after he recorded 17 QB hits and six sacks last season. Gregory will team up with Bradley Chubb to form a stellar pass-rush tandem. We also love what Denver has in the defensive secondary.
