When the Denver Broncos signed cornerback Bryce Callahan to a three-year, $21 million contract in 2019, they were hoping to have an immediate starter available. It was not to be as Callahan tried to battle his way back from a nagging foot injury that ultimately required a second surgery to resolve.
Lost for all of 2019, there were many questions as to his health heading into training camp this year. And while Callahan and the Broncos did come to an agreement on a contract restructure earlier this year, there were still some huge question marks on his overall health.
After one day, he has begun to answer them by making plays.
Head Coach Vic Fangio liked what he saw from Callahan in his first camp practice.
“Callahan had a good day today in his first action back,” Fangio said. “He actually did have one day of the earlier practice. Again, I haven’t watched the whole day of practice, but he did make some plays out there today. It’s good to see him out there moving around. His foot feels fine. He’s confident and ready to go.”
The Broncos secondary was a bit of a question mark with A.J. Bouye and a bunch of unproven young players behind him on the roster. With Callahan a full-go, this will put Denver in a much better spot filling out the secondary on game day.
And no, we still don’t have any updated photos of Callahan. Instead of using that same photo again, I went with the team shot.
