Butt, 23, is a former fifth-round of the Broncos back in 2017. Before he suffered an ACL injury last season, Butt was considered a first-round talent and one of the best tight ends in a very deep class.

Butt signed a four-year, $2.7 million contract with the Broncos that included a $300,948 signing bonus and stands to make base salaries of $555,000 and $645,000 over the first two years of the agreement.

In 2018, Butt has appeared in three games and caught eight passes for 85 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
