Let’s assume Joe Flacco tore it up in 11-on-11 drills during the Broncos’ voluntary veteran minicamp this week.
This assumption comes from the Broncos’ cornerback situation.
Chris Harris Jr.? A no show as an unofficial contract holdout (it was voluntary, after all). Kareem Jackson? He played safety for three days.
“For the reason that there’s more to learn at safety than there is at corner," said Broncos head coach Vic Fangio. “He’s played much more corner in his career, so I wanted him to get more work in this camp – all of his work – at the safety position, to feel comfortable there."
Bryce Callahan? He was held out of team drills as he continues to recover from left foot surgery. Isaac Yiadom? He’s recovering from offseason shoulder surgery?
Craig Mager? The veteran and former Charger whom the Broncos signed for the final two weeks of last season was a no-show this offseason because of personal reasons, sources told 9News.
After giving him three weeks to resolve his issues, the Broncos decided it was time to move on and cut Mager on Thursday.
