Broncos Veteran CB Bryce Callahan Surfacing In Growing Trade Rumors

The Denver Broncos boast one of the deepest, most talented secondaries in the NFL heading into the 2021 season. While this is a problem that’s generally accepted as a good one, it could leave one veteran cornerback without a place to play in the fall.

The Broncos could be on the market to trade.

According to Brad Spielberger of PFF, veteran cornerback Bryce Callahan is “a player to monitor” in a possible trade sometime in the near future. Although Callahan was a valuable contributor to Broncos’ secondary in 2020, he has struggled to make a mark in a highly competitive position group.

Denver acquired a number of cornerbacks in this offseason to strengthen an already strong team. In free agency, the Broncos signed veteran Ronald Darby and Kyle Fuller, an ex-All-Pro cornerback. Denver also took Patrick Surtain II, a highly-regarded prospect, in the first round of this spring’s NFL Draft.

The Broncos might consider trading Callahan, with those three players being the favourites to win most of the playing time. A trade is a possibility as the team would prefer to receive something in return for Callahan, rather than cutting him.

After spending four years in the Chicago Bears, Callahan began his NFL career with the Broncos. In his first season, Callahan didn’t play in Denver, but he played in 10 games in 2020 as a slot cornerback. Before he was placed on injured reserve in December, he had made 42 tackles and intercepted two passes.

Spielberger suggested that Callahan could be considered by a few teams if the Broncos decide to trade him. While the Cardinals, Jets, and Bears could all benefit from Callahan’s assistance in the secondary, many other franchises might be interested in adding some cornerback depth.

Although there is no guarantee that Callahan will be traded by the Broncos, it is worth keeping an eye on Denver over the next week.
