      They'll worry about Jeudy after his rookie contract is up. Jeudy is under contract through 2023. They won't worry about Hamler's contract after his rookie deal because they'll sign him to a reasonable amount or let him walk.

        Courtland Sutton, Broncos Reportedly Agree to 4-Year, $60.8M Contract Extension

        NOVEMBER 22, 2021


        The Denver Broncos have agreed to a four-year extension with receiver Courtland Sutton worth up to $60.8 million, according to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

        The deal features $34.9 million in guaranteed money.

        Sutton was set to become a free agent after the season, the final year of his rookie deal. The 26-year-old leads the Broncos with 43 catches for 617 yards through 10 games in 2021, adding two touchdowns.

        The 2018 second-round draft pick earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2019 when he finished with 72 catches for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns. A torn ACL ended his 2020 campaign after he'd played just one game, but he has bounced back strong this season.

        Denver also signed fellow receiver Tim Patrick to a three-year extension Saturday, while 2020 first-round pick Jerry Jeudy is under team control through 2024.

        Along with tight ends Noah Fant and Albert Okwuegbunam, the passing attack has a lot of options for Teddy Bridgewater or any other quarterback who fills the role in 2022.

        One concern could be Sutton's production alongside Jeudy, even with a small sample size.

        Jeudy has played only four games this season because of an ankle injury, but he has been the top option. Sutton has totaled six catches for 92 yards on 12 targets with both in the lineup.

        The Broncos apparently think the two can coexist after locking down Sutton on a long-term deal.

        At $15.2 million per year, Sutton will rank 14th among NFL receivers in average annual salary in 2022, per Spotrac.
        we have jeudy under control with the fifith year option to till 2025 not 2024. so it kinda plays out PAtricks big pay day ends when Jeudy's starts so we should be pretty good there expecially if we can draft the right young QB.

          Not sure if slants are not called because of offensive design of what Teddy will do.

          it was reported that defenses have started playing our offense knowing they do not have to face them.

            The contract game is not talked by many but the right contract structure can go a long way to having cap space without dead cap.

            Need to worry about future cap all the time. It is ok to do deals that can make cap management more difficult but they need to be done in the right way...and not too many or too much at the same time.

              Maybe a QB who gets rid of the ball will help.

              edit looked it up

              He is not even the Qb I thought he was as he is one of the worst in the NFL in terms of time it takes him to throw the ball. 29 QBs have a better time to throw than Teddy with 100 passing attempts or more. Colt McCoy would make it 30 but he has 90 pass attempts.

              Teddy is not the short passing specialist who makes quick decisions that we were sold on.
              Just when you think we couldn't suck worse.
              I wonder how much is due to play calling (allowing plays to develop) vs. Teddy the QB?
              Either way, Sutton and Patrick need more attempts.

                A couple of great moves this week by Paton to reward our own. Just need a new coaching staff and QB and this team will be able to compete with anyone.

                  Bad signing and Sutton showed why today. He’s average at best and a big reason the team lost. I can’t remember when he made a big play for this offense. Dropped an easy pass on the opening drive. Failed to pull in a TD catch in the first half. He failed to haul in a catchable ball late game.

                  I’ve always said Patrick is a better receiver and Sutton proved that today.

                      Hope that is the case. Serious knee injury and giving him that much money may have been a mistake. But also true we have no starting qb's on this team and been like that for a while

                        Bridgewater and Lock threw him very catchable balls and he failed to deliver on his contract.

                        He hasn’t shown enough to warrant the contract he received.

                          Agree. He really pissed me off today. Legit #1 WRs would have caught those balls. I was really frustrated with him today.

                            Sutton has done the same thing in other games, just not as noticeable not being targeted as much as he was yesterday. Also, he doesn’t get separation as much as he should.

                            Sutton has zero incentive to improve after being paid generously.

                              Sutton to me looks underwhelming.

                              I'm not sure if it's the fact that he's tired of running deep routes (probably) knowing Bridgewater won't go down his (or any receivers 15+ yards down field), or if he's just not as explosive post ACL. tear, or what - but he just looks quite mediocre and uninspiring.

                              Forgot the stats - but look at some of the effort, the drops, the 'given up' routes he has.... He's just flat.

                              Maybe it's more under the microscope to me because of DT's recent passing - we all thought that Sutton could come in and be a player like him.

                              But unfortunately, even with DT running only the triple option in college and having injury issue his first few years in the league - he's exponentially better than Sutton will ever be.

                              He was bigger, stronger, faster, and a better route runner.

                              Paton gave Sutton a nice contract with $35 million gauranteed - so I hope he has a plan with getting a quarterback that can play to Sutton's strengths...

                                I am concerned a bit about Sutton. I don't buy into the "it's the QB's fault" if you do not play like a pro and earn your salary. For me he's been lacking this year, and he is far too young to be in that place.
