The Denver Broncos will have a very good offense this upcoming year. Yes, most of it is because of the addition of Russell Wilson. However, look at the weapons that general manager George Paton already had before Wilson was on the team.
Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy could make up one of the better receiver duos in the NFL.
Jeudy was in a stacked receiver class in 2020, which also featured Henry Ruggs, who is no longer in the league, CeeDee Lamb, who is now the Cowboy’s number one guy, and Justin Jefferson who is a top-five receiver in the league. Meanwhile, Jeudy has not had quite the start we all would have hoped for his career.
In 2020, Jeudy finished with above 800 receiving yards in 16 games. Last season, due to an injury he played just 10 games and finished with 467 yards receiving and no touchdowns. Just from what we have seen in camp though, he looks ready for the season. He is showing that he can be a cornerstone piece for this offense for years to come.
Broncos have more opportunities now for Jeudy
If Jeudy ever wanted to prove what he can be, this year is a perfect time. While we hate that Tim Patrick tore his ACL, and is officially done for the season, that does open up more possibilities for Jeudy to shine in this offense.

“Obviously very upset he’s [Tim Patrick] not here,” Head coach Nathaniel Hackett told reporters Wednesday. “Now here’s an opportunity for somebody to step up, especially in the red zone, to have the opportunity to make some touchdowns, utilize some different people, and that’s what we are going to have to do… It will be exciting to see who is going to step up.”
So far, that is exactly what he has done.
Jeudy has stepped up to the plate and has not let anyone down. In fact, he has surprised people at training camp with some of the things he is doing. In Saturday’s practice, Jeudy and Wilson connected on a beautiful deep ball to score a touchdown during the two minute-drill. It’s something that made everyone excited for what the future holds this season.
Jeudy has it all right in front of him now. He has the quarterback. He has health. He has the opportunities and the reps. Now, all he has to do is put that all together and go out and ball. I think he will, but we will have to wait and see.
And, to make this year even more important, the Broncos are going to have decide on whether or not they want to approve Jeudy’s fifth-year option after the season.
In other words: 2022 will have a major impact on Jeudy’s future with the Broncos.
