Broncos trading FB Andy Janovich to Browns for 7th rounder in 2021, per source. Janovich became expendable with new Shurmur offense that doesn't use strict FB. Elway listens to coaches and finds players who fits scheme. Another example of synergy between Elway-Fangio. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 17, 2020
Newly hired offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur doesn’t utilize a traditional fullback like Janovich so this made Jano expendable. At least the Broncos were able to get something for their beloved fullback instead of just outright releasing him.
Janovich played four seasons with the Denver Broncos where he totaled 13 rushes for 51 yards and 3 rushing touchdowns. He also caught 22 balls for 233 yards and 1 touchdown as well. He was primarily known for his run blocking skills as well as his special teams ability.
He quickly became a fan favorite for his aggressive style of play, but unfortunately for Janovich, the traditional fullback is a dying breed in the NFL. Shurmur’s offense will see more shotgun and pistol looks with multiple receivers spread out wide with a back in the backfield. Janovich really wouldn’t have a role and would be a wasted roster spot. So at least the Broncos were able to get something for him even if it wasn’t all that much.
How mad are you about Andy Janovich being traded?
