Broncos 7 Current Wide Recievers

With the Broncos most recent signing of Emmanuel Sanders leaving the Chiefs fans over @AP "Butt Hurt", I am very pleased!

Sanders, having gotten only 19 starts in 56 games played, hasn't put up the gaudy #'s that the Broncos receivers all put up last year. The fact that he wasn't playing on the receiving end of Peytons passes is another good reason for that.

He started his career in 2010 purely as a kick returner for Pittsburgh. It wasn't until 2012 & 13 that he got any significant starts, and his receiving career yards (2,030) reflect that.

There are other new faces and names that I'm not familiar with, like Jordan Norwood, #13 Nathan Palmer & #15 Greg Wilson.

Jordan Shea Rashad Norwood is one of the five Cleveland Browns players the Broncos signed to futures contracts at the end of last season. (LB L.J. Fort, S Eric Hagg, OL Mike Farrell, and OL Ryan Miller are the others)

Ex-Cleveland GM Tom Heckert is currently in Denver's front office, and is obviously taking advantage of the three years he spent in Cleveland.

Norwood grew up in a football family. His father, Brian Norwood, (served as assistant to Joe Paterno at Penn State from 2001-2007) is the assistant HC to Art Briles at Baylor University.

Jordan caught just 36 passes for 405 yards and one touchdown in the 16 games he played in with the Browns (2011-2012). He's only played in 17 games (started 4) during his 3 year career. At Penn State, he totaled 158 receptions for 2015 yds (12.8 AVG), and 13 TD's.

UCFA #13 Nathan Palmer was signed to the 49ers PS after the 2012 draft and got some praise from 49ers beat writers who said, "he looked better in practice than their 1st Round selection, WR A.J. Jenkins out of University of Illinois."

He would certainly bring a welcomed quality to the Broncos offense in the form of 4.3-range speed. Can he return punts & kicks?

The Colts had their eye on him and signed him off the San Francisco 49er’s Practice Squad during their bye week after WR Austin Collie was placed on IR.

As luck would have it, Nathan (knee) was injured and waived receiving an injury settlement on September 2, 2013. On October 30, 2013, Palmer was signed to the Miami Dolphins practice squad.

#15 Greg Wilson is quite the story.

The following excerpts are from the NY Post:

To quote Greg Wilson, "It just really is a blessing from God, to be honest. A week into my rookie year and I’m heading to the Super Bowl.… Words can’t even describe it."

The week before that he was sitting at a sales desk working as a temporary employee at a solar company in San Francisco. What luck!

"I can only thank John Elway and John Fox for the opportunity, and the whole Broncos organization", he continued. "I just couldn’t believe that it was happening," he said. "I was so excited."

To read the full story from the NY Post GO HERE. To read the ESPN version GO HERE. A practice squad player for one week and then on to the SB. His measurables are...

4.51s/40, 2.61/20, Vertical: 31 ½, Broad: 09'/09", 20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.04, 3-Cone Drill: 7.08.

So Bronco Fans... do any of these three guys have a shot at our 53 man roster?
