Jerry Jeudy feels like the Broncos have all the pieces they need to have a successful season
Denver- Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is excited for the upcoming season and feels like the team has a good chance to be that team that could make some noise in their division.
After having a roller coaster season last year, Denver decided to switch things up and trade away Drew Lock to the Seahawks and buy into what Russell Wilson is selling. With a two head monster backfield with Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams and a deep threat down the field in Jeudy, things are looking promising for the Broncos.
Jeudy talked about the potential the Broncos could have during Day 3 of training camp. "We have all the pieces. We just added ‘Russ’ (QB Russell Wilson) and the new coaching staff, so I’m excited to see how the season goes this year. We just have to put all the pieces together.”
Wilson echoed Jeudy's confidence in this team as well and had this to say about the potential I think newness is always great,” Wilsonsaid. “Any time you go into something new, you have two ways of looking at it. You can look at it with fear, nerves, and thinking, ‘What is this going to be? What is this going to mean?’ Or you can go own it and take care of it yourself and do it with a bunch of great guys. That’s what we are doing. We are all in this thing together. We are pumped and excited to do it and hopefully bring a championship to Denver again.”
Jeudy has been a valuable pick up that Denver needed, but he lacks consistency. If Wilson and Jeudy can get on the same page, teams will have a nightmare stopping the duo. Wilson throws the deep ball pretty well, ranking him in the top five of quarterbacks who can put it on the money to their receivers, throwing it 40 yards or more. With Jeudy's speed, Wilson could potentially hit him in stride for a touchdown, which can be a recurring thing this season. Outside of throwing the ball, Denver could use some RPO packages to pick apart opponents. Gordon and Williams are power backs that can be game changers in a split second. Plus, it helps that Wilson can extend drives with his legs.
This will be an interesting and intriguing year for Broncos fans. Not, because of the changes the team made, but because the AFC West have loads of talent in that division.
