Mile High Morning: Jerry Jeudy pays homage to Broncos legends after agreeing on rookie contract


The Lead

After Jerry Jeudy agreed to terms on his rookie contract Wednesday, the first-round pick marked the day with more than just his first visit to UCHealth Training Center.

In a video posted on his social media accounts, Jeudy announced the news with a celebration of the franchise's history and its legends.

"Broncos Country, I salute the greats," the video says in its caption. "I aspire to be one. That's what I work for, and I'm excited to announce that …" — and then Jeudy says the rest: "… we have agreed to terms."

One of those greats even reached out to him after seeing the video.

With the kind of talent and work ethic we've seen from Jeudy so far, we might see plenty more Mile High Salutes from No. 10 this fall.

Below the Fold

In ESPN's collection of key questions that each NFL team is facing, reporter Jeff Legwold says this is Denver's biggest: "Is Drew Lock ready to be the quarterback of the present, let alone the future?" In his answer to that question, Legwold is blunt: "He'd better be, because the Broncos essentially constructed their entire offseason plan with the idea that he is ready to handle the job -- not only on the field, but off it, too."

According to Pro Football Focus’ Sam Monson, the Broncos will enter the 2020 season with the seventh-best collection of defensive linemen. "Shelby Harris and Mike Purcell both graded well last season, and now Jurrell Casey, who has been one of the most consistently disruptive interior players over the past decade, joins them," Monson wrote.
