3 Players That Need to Step Up for Broncos in 2022

We have made it through the toughest stretch of the year. Football is back as training camps kicked off this week. There were plenty of impactful moves this offseason, but the Denver Broncos acquiring Super Bowl champion quarterback Russell Wilson was among the biggest. 

A team that most believe is equipped with a playoff-ready roster, the upgrade at quarterback has put a fresh perspective and lofty expectations on this organization. With training camp underway, everyone wants to be successful, but certain players need positive practices leading into the season. Here are the three Denver Broncos that meet the criteria. 

1. EDGE Bradley Chubb

The fifth-year edge rusher burst on the scene with 12.0 sacks as a rookie in 2018. Fast forward a few seasons and he has not delivered consistently. As a result of instability with his health, Chubb has missed double-digit games two out of his four seasons in the league. This is a pivotal year for Chubb, who will be a free agent after the season. The Broncos’ defense needs him to be the disruptive force he has flashed in the past. 

A strong showing in camp can be a precursor for his 2022 campaign. In a division with three top-tier caliber quarterbacks, being able to get after them will decide how successful this season will be. The Broncos need a healthy and revitalized Bradley Chubb and camp is where it begins. 

2. WR Jerry Jeudy

Entering the 2020 NFL Draft, Jeudy was one of the most polarizing players in the class. Known for his sudden route running, expectations were high. Heading into year three, Jeudy has yet to hit the 1,000-yard mark in a season. Plagued by sub-par quarterback play and injuries, there is a lot riding on this season but he is healthy to begin training camp and has a new quarterback. 

Everyone knows Jeudy can generate ample separation to create bigger throwing lanes for his quarterback. Now, he has one that can maximize his talents. The stars are aligning for a potential breakout season for Jeudy and a strong training camp is a great step in the right direction to bringing this to fruition. 

3. QB Russell Wilson

Last but certainly not least, the most important player on the Broncos is Russell Wilson. The competition at quarterback is unlike anything we have seen with all four AFC West teams toting talented passers. Luckily, he spent his career in the NFC West, one of the toughest divisions in football. 

Starting training camp hot will boost everyone’s confidence in the Mile High city. Rumors have surrounded Wilson regarding his desire to be traded for a few seasons, but it finally happened. This brings expectations to deliver and prove he is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. 

Developing the timing and chemistry with his talented receiving corps will help shorten the curve and adjustment once the season begins. Wilson and his work ethic were instrumental in the quick-developing chemistry between wide receiver D.K. Metcalf and himself back in Seattle. The hope in Denver is a similar result with Wilson and his wide receiver quartet.

Football is here folks and Bronco fans have every reason to feel excited. This team has high aspirations and they are warranted. Let’s see how camp unfolds before the main event unfolds come September.
