The Denver Broncos received some unfortunate news earlier this week.

Wide receiver Tim Patrick, a player that appeared to be on the verge of a breakout season in 2022, tore his ACL at practice on Tuesday.

The Broncos obviously need to add some wide receiver depth with Patrick out for the season.

One option would be to trade for Miami Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams.

Williams is an extremely talented wide receiver with ideal size. But he’s dealt with some injuries during his time in Miami. He’s also dealt with some less-than-ideal situations with the Dolphins.

On Tuesday, Williams indicated that he’s not necessarily happy in Miami.

Williams suggested he’s not being given an opportunity to show his true skills.

According to Omar Kelly, who covers the Dolphins for the Sun-Sentinel, there’s interest from other NFL teams in Williams.

It sounds like Williams just needs a change of scenery.

And the Broncos would make a lot of sense for him.

That’s because Denver’s wide receivers coach is Zach Azzanni, who coached and recruited Williams in college at Tennessee (Williams played for the Vols from 2015 to 2016…Azzanni also left UT after the 2016 season).

Here’s what Azzanni said about Williams back in 2015 (via 247Sports):

“He doesn’t lack confidence, and that’s a good thing for a receiver,” Azzanni later added. “Sometimes we have to temper it a little bit, but he doesn’t lack confidence, and that’s enabled him to go out there and compete. If he had no confidence, he wouldn’t be a competitor, so that’s definitely helped him improve every day.”

A reunion between Williams and Azzanni could be incredibly beneficial for the Broncos.
