Sutton, Jeudy, Hamler...oh my!

New, comments

Could this be the 2020s’ new and improved version of ‘The Three Amigos?’

Jerry Jeudy became the ninth of 10 Broncos’ rookies to sign his four-year contract, and he announced it the only way a new Broncos wide receiver should - with flair.

The Broncos’ first-round pick out of Alabama caught 145 passes for 2,478 yards and 24 touchdowns in his final two seasons for the Tide and was awarded as the nation’s top college receiver.

He is expected to be a starter opposite Courtland Sutton, who came into his own last year as he took over the No. 1 receiver spot when Emmanuel Sanders was traded to the 49ers.

In fact, Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus is pretty excited about all three of the predicted starting receivers, including fellow rookie Hamler.

If Monson’s predictions of a “physical freak,” a “sophisticated route-runner” and a “true X-factor” bear out, this really will be the exciting offense we’ve been waiting for since...ever.

Although a trio of receivers may bring back memories of Denver’s “Three Amigos” in the late 80s, this version will be that group on steroids. Times 10.

And while it’s way too early to make Elway-Lock comparisons, it’s pretty exciting to think this offense could have all the pieces - a strong QB; fast and deceptive receivers; shifty and powerful running backs.

Oh my, indeed.
