  • Broncos' Patrick Surtain: Option should be picked up

    Surtain is expected to have his fifth-year option exercised by the Broncos, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Surtain had another individually successful campaign in 2023, recording a career-high 69 tackles, albeit while notching a career-low one interception. The Alabama product remains one of the better corners in the league, so having his option picked up, and keeping him in Denver for at least two more seasons, makes sense.

  • Broncos' Patrick Surtain: Misses practice

    Surtain (calf) was sidelined during Monday's practice, but it appears his absence is not related to anything serious, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Surtain worked off to the side at practice, though the team seems to just be exercising extra caution during OTAs. The 22-year-old cornerback is set to enter his sophomore season after an impressive rookie campaign, in which he finished with 58 total tackles, 14 passes defended and four interceptions. Surtain figures to be a key member of the Broncos defense in 2022, a unit which has the chance to take a step forward with multiple offseason upgrades. If the 2021 first-rounder continues to develop, he could be set up for a breakout year with Denver projected to be a more competitive team next season. The addition of Russell Wilson at quarterback will likely provide a boost for the Denver offense, which could result in more passing volume for opposing offenses. If this is the case, Surtain should see more opportunities to make big plays in what should be a formidable defensive unit.

  • Broncos' Patrick Surtain: Misses practice

    Surtain was pulled out of practice Tuesday with soreness in his lower extremities, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports. According to Coach Vic Fangio, Surtain could have continued practicing, but he was kept out as a precaution. The injury does not appear to be serious, so Surtain's availability for Denver's next preseason game against Seattle is likely not in question. The rookie cornerback is coming off an impressive debut in his first game action in which he scored a touchdown on a 30-yard interception return. Surtain also registered a pass breakup in the contest. The University of Alabama product will look to live up to the high expectations of being a ninth overall draft selection as a member of a defensive backfield with proven veterans Kyle Fuller and Ronald Darby. Surtain's strong technique should help him to make an impact immediately, especially since he may be playing in slot coverage often this season.
