With Bryce Callahan still sidelined recovering from a December foot surgery, Denver is looking for additional help at the corner position, according to 9News’ Mike Klis as he joined Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright on KOA News Radio this evening.
“They have been looking at corners, they’ve been contacting, Klis said. “I don’t know specifically about (Aaron) Colvin. There’s a couple other names I’ve heard but I do know the Broncos are looking, they’re concerned about Bryce Callahan and how soon he’ll come back.”
Aaron Colvin is a name that recently popped up on the corner market as the Texans released him just one year into a big contract he signed with them in 2018 coming over from Jacksonville. Colvin was responsible for the pass that set up the Saints game winning field goal last night, so it may have been as much of a snap judgement/statement making type move as it is about his full body of work.
Colvin is an interesting name because he fits the scheme pretty well and looked like a solid 2nd or 3rd corner in Jacksonville before coming to Houston.
That name bears watching, but the larger issue at hand is that it seems as though Denver is preparing for Bryce Callahan to miss significant time. We all saw how Isaac Yiadom fared last night, so bringing in corner depth is a wise move.
Denver has a little more flexibility in this year’s cap since restructuring Joe Flacco’s deal so we’ll keep an eye out for potential signings or perhaps even a trade to give the corner position a boost, but hopefully Callahan will return sooner rather than later.
