The Denver Broncos are starting over at quarterback after the Russell Wilson experiment ended up as a massive bust. At some point in 2024, rookie first-round pick Bo Nix figures to take over under center, even if it’s not to start the season. Let’s break down the ’24 Broncos.

The Broncos’ overall schedule this season is ranked as the 20th toughest in the NFL, as its opponents combined for a .495 winning percentage in 2023. Denver is a 4.5-point underdog in Week 1 at Seattle. Denver also opened the 2022 season in Seattle, and this year’s Week 1 matchup marks the third time in the last four years the Broncos have opened on the road. The Broncos hold a 10-13 record on the road in Week 1 games and have earned the most Week 1 wins of any team since 1960.

Denver does not have a three-game road trip on its schedule after enduring that challenge in 2023, but the team will play back-to-back road games on three occasions in 2024. The Broncos will play six games against 2023 playoff teams during the upcoming season, with back-to-back games against last year’s playoff teams coming twice during the slate. The team’s schedule includes matchups against each team in the AFC North and NFC South, as well as the 2023 third-place finishers in the AFC South, AFC East and NFC West.

It’s been a hard time for the Broncos

Denver won the Super Bowl following the 2015 season but hasn’t been back to the playoffs since, largely because QB Peyton Manning retired following that title and the Broncos have been looking for the solution under center since. The team released Wilson, a borderline future Hall of Famer, this offseason and will take an $85 million hit in dead money over the next two seasons because of the release. That dead money charge is larger than the next two closest combined all time of guys who were released.

The Broncos went all-in to acquire Wilson two years ago from the Seattle Seahawks, sending five draft picks, including two first-round and two second-round selections, as well as three players. But Denver went 11-19 in Wilson’s starts over two seasons and failed to make the playoffs. Coach Sean Payton benched him with two games remaining in 2023, a move that in effect marked the end of Wilson’s career in Denver. He’s now in Pittsburgh.

Who Will Lead?

Veteran journeyman Jarrett Stidham, former Jets No. 2 overall pick bust Zach Wilson and the rookie Nix will battle to be the Week 1 starter this season. Stidham is the most experienced quarterback on the roster, having been in the NFL the longest. He’s 27 years old, while Wilson and Nix are both 24. Despite that, Stidham has only started four games and thrown 197 passes over his career. Stidham has passed for 1,422 yards and eight touchdowns with eight interceptions in 16 games since entering the NFL ranks in 2019 with the New England Patriots.

By all accounts, Stidham is likely in the lead for the job entering training camp: “He’s doing well,” Payton said of Stidham last month following OTAs. “Clearly, within the framework within what we’re doing, he is much further along than in Year 1 in the transition. I’d say he’s looked really sharp during this offseason program. [He is] real decisive. I think the leadership he is able to provide there, and there’s good competition.”

Nix was chosen with the No. 12 overall pick out of Oregon. The 2023 Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year and a Heisman Trophy finalist, Nix led Oregon to a 12-2 record in his final season as he completed 77.4 percent of his passes and threw for 4,508 yards, 45 touchdowns and three interceptions. He also recorded six rushing touchdowns. Nix started an FBS record 61 career games between Oregon and Auburn.

Latest Roster Changes

,p>The Broncos did trade one of their top wideouts this offseason in Jerry Jeudy to Cleveland. Jeudy spent four seasons with the Broncos after he was drafted at No. 15 overall pick of the 2020 draft. He appeared in 57 games with 44 starts and recorded 211 receptions for 3,053 yards and 11 touchdowns. Denver got 2024 fifth and sixth-round picks from the Browns for him. Jeudy’s Denver departure could lead to a bigger role in the offense for wide receiver Marvin Mims Jr.

He was the Broncos’ second-round pick last year and was selected to the Pro Bowl as a returner. At the moment, Mims plays the same spot Jeudy did in the Broncos’ personnel groupings at receiver. Mims played 384 snaps on offense last season — 38% of the team’s plays. Fellow WR Tim Patrick, who has not appeared in a game since 2021 following training camp injuries to his ACL and Achilles, feels healthy again and ready to contribute. He suffered an ACL injury as he made a cut following a catch early in training camp in 2022, and he then suffered an Achilles tear as he ran a short route on July 31, 2023.

Denver released second-team All-Pro safety Justin Simmons to save money and lost center Lloyd Cushenberry, who ranked in the top five in both pass block and run block win rate at center, in free agency. The latter stings because Cushenberry is young and could have been a long-term part of Denver’s roster.
