Denver Broncos Release Cornerback A.J. Bouye
A.J. Bouye was one of the Denver Broncos prized free agent pickups last offseason.
But now the cornerback's tenure in Orange and Blue is already over, according to the Denver Broncos. Bouye was released, freeing up about $12 million in value cap space (to spend on Deshaun Watson please).
The Broncos acquired Bouye during a trade with Jacksonville that saw them give up a 4th round pick before the 2020 season. Bouye, who was drafted by the Houston Texans in 2013 has had an impressive career racking up 14 interceptions, returning 1 for a touchdown.
Bouye time in Denver was abruptly cut short in week 1 when he suffered a shoulder injury that kept him out of action for a while and then came the PED suspension late in the year, a six game suspension which will carry over for the first two games of this upcoming 2021 season.
Lots of questions STILL remain for the Broncos as we approach free agency next month, what are they going to do about Von Miller? Justin Simmons? Jurrell Casey? and these questions are only on the defensive side of the ball.
New Broncos GM George Paton has his work cut out for him but even with all of these questions, there is a LOT of talent on this roster...with a few moves here and there, I truly believe the Broncos can compete for a playoff run in fact, I think they WILL make the playoffs...you heard it here first.
