The Broncos need some red-zone punch.
There’s no more glaring deficiency in Denver’s offensive game. It’s not anomalous, it’s a trend.
Denver has addressed and improved in four aspects that will have to have an impact on the red zone efficiency. As mentioned previously, the offensive line, running back, tight end and quarterback positions all have been bolstered in the offseason.
At 5’11” and 230 pounds, Royce Clayton needs to be the punch Denver has missed over the last few seasons. Jake Butt, a possession master at Michigan before his knee injury has to return to form and give Denver an option they’ve been missing since the departure of Julius Thomas. We’ve covered Keenum and the line.
The Broncos offseason moves have given Offensive Coordinator Bill Musgrave options. He has the tools to create an offense that’s better than expected.
It can’t be any worse.
