Wilkinson, 25, wound up going undrafted out of Massachusetts back in 2017. He later signed on with the Broncos, but was waived coming out of the preseason and later re-signed to their practice squad.

Wilkinson played under exclusive rights tenders each of the past two seasons before returning to the Broncos on a one-year, restricted tender worth $3.27 million for the 2020 season this past April. 

In 2020, Wilkinson has appeared in three games for the Broncos and started all three at right tackle.

Fumagalli, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2018. He was in the third year of his four-year, $2.7 million contract with Denver when he was placed on injured reserve. 

The Broncos opted to waive Fumagalli from injured reserve with an injury settlement back in September. He had a brief stint on the Texans’ practice squad before returning to Denver’s taxi squad earlier this month. 

In 2020, Fumagalli has appeared in one game for the Broncos and recorded two receptions for 12 yards and no touchdowns.
