  • Kj Hamler placed on IR

    They should’ve just cut ties with him while he was healthy and got whatever draft picks they could’ve gotten. I understand supposed to be a blazer and take the top off the defense, However, hes not going to do this from the bench or on IR. The Broncos need to just move on from him. Do their darn research and find a blazer with size, even if he’s not nearly as fast as Kj but faster than most, he will be fine.

    Let’s cut ties with the last of the Elway guys.​

      Like I said on a draft podcast, the Broncos needed to avoid him at all costs and shouldn't be considered early Day 2. This was stated well before the draft when they took Jeudy in the first-round.

      Didn't care about his speed. You can get fast guys on Day 3 or UDFA who can stretch the field. Absolutely dumb of Elway to double-dip there and it's amazing that Coach Z has had that much pull with getting guys in his room draft-wise.

      Hamler was overrated as a prospect and a prior ACL tear led to nagging hamstring injuries in college. Absolute repeat in the pros from his PSU days. Absolute shocker! *sarcasm*

      Feel bad for him, but it's whatever. I doubt the Broncos move on from him. Virtually everyone in that room has been hurt.

      They can't get out of the Sutton and Patrick deals until after next year ('23) and designating them as a '24 league year post-June 1st cut.

      They shouldn't pick up Jeudy's FYO because paying him that $ with Wilson at QB is just a disaster.

      The team's revamped WR corps which was supposed to be a core strength has turned into a poor allocation of resources from two different GMs.

      Wouldn't touch a WR in the first-round in this year's draft, but would consider a playmaker with one of their third-round picks if there aren't better options elsewhere.

        He was never going to be productive this season after that knee injury. It was a really bad one with all three major ligaments affected. Still, awful pick.

              I don't hate the guy at all. It's just reality.

                Hamstrings made of glass. Jeudy and Hamler back to back. Two huge wiffs by Elway.

                  If I remember correctly from the Mane, you had venom for Hamler before he was even picked and said he was one of the players you wouldn't touch at all. Then it got worse when he was drafted.

                  Every single WR on our team that was supposed to be top 3-4 has had injury issues. Hamler is no exception, despite the college injuries.

                    Good. No need hurting him more for this stupid Wilson Bust season anyway.
                    maybe he can come back next year and get ignored when he's open or thrown into traffic when he should have a TD by Russell Willow next season too.

                    Put blame on the one that never got him the ball and caused him to run into injury risk constantly.

                    Or the dumb ass S&C Coach and his whole squad.

                    Hamler's just a #3WR.

                    If we had a QB that was worth a piece of shit, we wouldn't even care if Hamler was hurt.

                      I didn't understand the double dip at WR either and Jefferson was my guy before the draft but they went with my 2nd guy in Jeudy. We could have double dipped and came away with Jefferson and Claypool but when we were on the clock in the 2nd round I wanted AJ Epenesa or Jeremy Chinn.

                      If a guy like Mingo or Hutchinson is there in the 4th I would jump on that this draft. Maybe even the 3rd depending on how the off season and FA plays out but if we can get a RT and 1 interior starter then I would love to draft Bijan Robinson if he makes it to our pick.

                          Alot of folks on the 'mane were leary of the pick and a good many thought his career would be EXACTLY as it has turned out...too frequently injured to matter.

                          I agree with REQ...there is a plethora of guys who can simply run fast later in the draft...and you mitigate your risk by waiting till then draft that type of player. 2nd round picks are much better utilized on off ball LB, TE, interior Oline and S who stand to make lasting impacts.

                            It wasn't venom. It was legitimate criticism that has played out exactly as I thought it would.

                              How come some of us predicted this back in March?


                              no idea why he’s even on the roster. Even when healthy he sucks.


                              just one more example of a failed FO and a current FO who can’t even read their own players.

                                Meh, more injuries to the already depleted receiving corps. Seems like another case of deja vu. The whole group is soft as Charmin.

                                  If I never see Hamler play again in Denver I would be fine with it.
