ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — In the wake of the 2021 season, the Broncos have signed six players to future contracts.
Denver signed tight end Shaun Beyer, running back Damarea Crockett, wide receiver Travis Fulgham, tackle Drew Himmelman, guard Zack Johnson and linebacker Barrington Wade to future deals. The players will be added to the 90-man active roster when the 2022 offseason officially begins.
Crockett saw the most playing time in 2021, as he appeared in 12 games for Denver, largely as a special teams contributor. Wade and Fulgham also made game appearances for the Broncos this year. Fulgham was the Eagles' leading receiver in 2020.
All six players spent time on either the team's practice squad or active roster in 2021.
Players signed to future contracts can make an impact on the upcoming season. Last year, Crockett, tackle Quinn Bailey and wide receiver Kendall Hinton were among the players Denver signed to future contracts. Wide receiver Trinity Benson, whom the Broncos traded to the Lions for draft capital, was also a 2021 future signing.
