Broncos news: Courtland Sutton urges teammates to take advantage of virtual meetings

The Denver Broncos, much like the rest of the NFL, need to get accustomed to a virtual offseason and Courtland Sutton hopes his teammates buy in.


The Denver Broncos, like the rest of the NFL, are having to do virtual meetings due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

In a recent interview with ESPN's Jeff Legwold, Broncos receiver Courtland Sutton said he urges all of his teammates to take advantage of the virtual meetings.

“The biggest thing for us is taking advantage of the virtual meetings,” Sutton said. “These are things you can't take for granted at all. Obviously, you take the physical aspect out of it … but we can't look at this situation and say, ‘We should be able to go out there and run routes and we can't so this time is butchered.' That's not the case at all. It's how can we manage this time that we have, this platform that we've been given. … There's so much to learn, so much that you can add to your game that isn't just being on the field.”

Normally, the NFL Organized Team Activities (OTAs) would be taking place this month, followed by June minicamps. However, for now, everything is being done virtually.

As of today, there's no clear indication when the NFL practice facilities will open back up. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell extended the virtual offseason through May 29th. Nevertheless, when the facilities do reopen, there will, for sure, be plenty of protocols set.

As for Sutton, it sounds like he's eager for this upcoming season. The Broncos made it an obligation to add more receivers to their team this offseason, and they did just that. They were able to snag Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler in the first two rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft, strengthening their offense that already includes Sutton.
