KJ Hamler and rookie Montrell Washington planning to race at some point

For fun, of course. May the fastest man on the Denver Broncos win.

NFL: Denver Broncos-Mini Camp Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, wide receiver KJ Hamler was asked if he was planning to race fellow wideout, rookie Montrell Washington at some point. He jokingly said they would, but just for the fun of it.

“Yeah, Montrell [Washington] is a competitor,” Hamler said. “We’ll do it just for fun. Montrell is my boy—he’s learning from me. I’ve kind of taken him under my wing because as a rookie, I came in thinking too much and worried about the plays. He’s done way better of just asking questions, being a sponge and just absorbing stuff. I’ve kind of been a bigger brother in this whole process.”

With Hamler activated off the PUP list just yesterday, it might be a few weeks before we hear about that race. Hamler finally back after a long rehab is victory enough for now and Washington has definitely been making waves early in Denver Broncos training camp. It would actually be fun to see the two in a foot race.

The pads will be coming on for the first time in Broncos camp today, so stay tuned for that later today when practice starts. We should see some good competition from that.
