Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton traveled to Florida to train with Tony Villani of XPE Sports ahead of the team's offseason program, and he's now working with former NFL wideout Anquan Boldin on his route-running techniques. Sutton focused on being more explosive with the ball in his hands while working with Villani. The 23-year-old will be leaned on more heavily heading into his second year, especially if Emmanuel Sanders is slow to recover from his Achilles injury. He'll be a popular target in 2019 drafts after catching 42 passes for 704 yards and four touchdowns in his rookie season with Case Keenum throwing him passes.
The Denver Broncos are signing rookie tight end Noah Fant, the No. 20 overall pick of the first round, to a four-year rookie deal with a fifth-year option on Thursday, according to a source. The deal will include a $7.17 million signing bonus. Poor blocking and problems with drops could hurt Fant early in his career, but he has intriguing long-term upside and could put up some decent numbers in his first year in Denver with quarterback Joe Flacco often leaning on his pass-catching tight ends. Still, he'll have to compete with Jeff Heuerman, Troy Fumagalli and Jake Butt, so don't overvalue him in redraft leagues in his rookie season.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton is aiming to improve in the red zone heading into his second NFL season. Last year, 176 players had more than Sutton's two red-zone catches (both touchdowns) and 80 wideouts had more than his eight targets inside the 20. Personally in the red zone, I think Im one of the biggest threats that (defensive backs) go against, Sutton said. Every DB that I played against or will play against will probably say the same thing. They might not show it, but they know. At 6-foot-4, 216 pounds, the second-year wideout will be looking to break out with quarterback Joe Flacco now under center.
Denver Broncos second-year wide receiver Daesean Hamilton said he is building chemistry with quarterback Joe Flacco during organized team activities. "Were getting all the reps together and building that chemistry. Working with Joe so far has been great. Throughout training camp and OTAs, hes had great command of the offense and is putting us in the right positions as an offense," Hamilton said. The 24-year-old will look to have a bigger role in 2019 after catching 30 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games in his rookie season.
It sounds as though Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is moving towards a short-term deal and possibly a pay raise in 2019 with a chance to hit the open market in 2020. He's scheduled to make $8.8 million in 2019, but the two sides are still negotiating. Harris is seeking $15 million this year, but the Broncos have been unwilling to match it so far. It could wind up in a divorce after the 2019 season, which would be a big blow to the Broncos secondary. Harris has become one of the best shutdown corners in the league.
