What’s the Status of the Broncos Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In?

NFL.com has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

The Broncos have a chance in free agency to go out and get some play makers, but it’s going to be an interesting decision if they do or not.

You can read the entire article HERE – for now here’s what the piece says about the Broncos receiver situation.

Top three WRs in 2019: Courtland Sutton (72-1,112-6), Emmanuel Sanders (30-367-2 — traded in October), DaeSean Hamilton (28-297-1).

The trade of Emmanuel Sanders to the 49ers ahead of Week 8 seemed like a signal that the Broncos were looking ahead to rebuilding their receiving corps. And then Courtland Sutton proceeded to rack up 1,112 yards (17th among receivers), creating WR1 cachet. Furthermore, Broncos WRs dropped just eight passes in 2019, tied for the fewest, per PFF. In other words, Denver now has options and leverage, having landed a third-round pick in exchange for Sanders without necessarily entering the offseason in obvious need of receiver talent.
