Broncos agree to terms with first-round pick Jerry Jeudy on rookie contract


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — First-round pick Jerry Jeudy has agreed to terms on his four-year rookie contract, the team announced on Thursday.

As a first-round pick, his contract will also include a fifth-year team option.

Jeudy is the ninth member of the Broncos' 2020 draft class to agree to terms. Michael Ojemudia, Lloyd Cushenberry III, McTelvin Agim, Albert Okwuegbunam, Justin Strnad, Netane Muti, Tyrie Cleveland and Derrek Tuszka agreed to terms earlier in the week.

The 15th-overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft caught 145 passes for 2,478 yards and 24 touchdowns over his final two seasons at Alabama. He was named the 2018 Biletnikoff Award winner as the nation's top receiver, and he finished second in Alabama history with 26 total receiving touchdowns.

Jeudy is expected to be an instant-impact starter in the Broncos' new look offense.

Jeudy and the rest of the team's rookies were scheduled to report to UCHealth Training Center on Thursday for COVID-19 testing.

Nine of the 10 members of the Broncos' 2020 draft class have now agreed to terms on their rookie contracts. Only second-round pick KJ Hamler has yet to agree to terms.
