Dianna Russini reports that the Broncos are, in fact, signing CB Bryce Callahan to a contract.
- According to Adam Schefter, Callahan gets a three-year, $21 million contract that includes $10 million fully guaranteed.
There are obvious ties between the Broncos and Callahan, given that Denver hired former Bears DC Vic Fangio as their new defensive coordinator. The Broncos could also use some cornerback help, so this is certainly worth keeping an eye on.
This is the first reported interest in him since the free agent market officially opened.
Callahan, 27, wound up signing on with the Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Rice back in 2015. He was waived a few weeks into his rookie season and later signed him to the team’s practice squad before later being called up.
The Bears re-signed him on a one-year deal restricted deal last April and he’s testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2018, Callahan has appeared in 13 games for the Bears and recorded 45 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions and six pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 7 cornerback out of 112 qualifying players.
