Rumors circled the Denver Broncos earlier this offseason about potential plans to trade a starting wide receiver. One player involved in those trade rumors: six-year veteran Courtland Sutton.
Sutton says he appreciates interest from other teams, but clarifies he wants to stay in the Mile High City. “It’s flattering that other teams see me as a guy that can come in and be a guy for them,” he said via NFL.com. “I love that I’m here. This is where, ultimately, you guys know that I want to be at. This is home.”
Sutton wants to keep working with Denver to achieve the ultimate goal, and says the addition of head coach Sean Payton and the other coaches he brought in have given extra motivation to the team to collect wins next season.
“I’ve been able to come here and continue to build the thing that we’re aspiring to get to,” Sutton said. “Coach Payton coming in, bringing the coaches in that he’s brought in, bringing the guys in that he’s brought in. You know, everybody’s bought in and ready to take this thing to the next level.”
The Broncos struggled last season, going 5-12 in quarterback Russell Wilson’s first season with the team. They ranked last in points scored and 29th in completion percentage (60.4), all resulting in a last-place spot in the AFC West.
