Bruton added that he’s looking for a similar contract to the one signed by Cardinals CB Justin Bethel, who received a four-year, $15.66 million deal with $9 million guaranteed, per Wolfe.
In regards to returning to the Broncos, Bruton said that he’s willing to be back in Denver as long as they’re willing to come close to these figures, per Wolfe.
Of course, there’s some question as to whether or not the Broncos will be able to afford to spend some of their cap space on him with notable players like Von Miller, Brock Osweiler and Malik Jackson among others to be addressed.
Bruton, 28, played out his three-year, $4.5 million deal with the Broncos and will be an unrestricted free agent in the coming weeks.
In 2015, Bruton appeared in 13 games for the Broncos and recorded 48 tackles, one sack, two interceptions, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and seven pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 36 safety out of 88 qualifying players.
