Even before signing Pro Bowl cornerback Kyle Fuller last week, the Denver Broncos had a talented secondary. After adding Fuller and bringing back safety Kareem Jackson, the secondary depth chart looks impressive.
At cornerback, Fuller will be joined by Ronald Darby, Bryce Callahan, Michael Ojemudia and Essang Bassey. Behind them, Jackson will team up with Justin Simmons, who is now the highest-paid safety in the NFL.
“I played with Bryce in Chicago,” Fuller said during his introductory Zoom press conference. “Ronald Darby played with my brother [Kendall Fuller]. I’ve seen a lot of these guys across the league. Justin Simmons — I like the way he plays. I’ll get to know some of them more, but I like the way they play and I’m looking forward to working with them.”
Fuller will also be challenged by Denver’s talented wide receivers at practice. The Broncos’ deep receiver room includes Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, KJ Hamler and tight end Noah Fant.
“I know there are some good weapons and I’m looking forward to going out and competing against them every day,” Fuller said.
After totaling eight pass breakups and one interception last year, Fuller will look to return to his 2018 form after reuniting with coach Vic Fangio.
