The Denver Broncos are in the middle of their mandatory minicamp, preparing for the 2022-2023 season. A lot happened this offseason, including the team’s blockbuster trade with the Seattle Seahawks, in which they received quarterback Russell Wilson.
While the Broncos had a pretty successful offseason, Jerry Jeudy dealt with his own individual battle separate from football. The wide receiver was arrested in mid-May after an altercation with his girlfriend, the mother of his one-year-old child. However, things are looking up for Jeudy ahead of the upcoming season.
The charges were dropped and Jeudy is ready to move forward with the team and in his personal life. He briefly discussed the situation with reporters at minicamp on Tuesday, video courtesy of Broncos insider Troy Renck.

“[I] just know how to handle the situation for now on. I learned from it, now I’m ready to move forward,” the young Broncos receiver said.
Reportedly, Jeudy was withholding his girlfriend’s belongings including a car seat, her wallet, and medical information. There was never a physical altercation in the incident, which occurred on May 12.
Police arrested Jeudy on suspicion of a misdemeanor charge of second-degree criminal tampering with a domestic violence enhancer. Jeudy stayed the night at Arapahoe County jail and later released on $1,500 bond. The woman asked the judge to dismiss his case, explaining that the law’s involvement with a misunderstanding. “I just wanted them to monitor the situation,” she said. “He was not a threat.”
He has been available throughout offseason training, and is ready to continue his young career with the Broncos.
