The Denver Broncos are hoping for a breakout from 2020 first-choice wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, who has fallen short of his expectations.
Jeudy has missed seven games in 2021 due to an ankle injury and COVID-19 game time. He scored 90 passes and 1,323 yards in his first two seasons and didn’t score a single goal last season.
But all that is a thing of the past now. With the new addition of Russell Wilson to the home screen, Jeudy is understanding how much work the 34-year-old midfielder has to do.
“Every detail matters to him,” Jeudy said at his youth soccer camp, via ABC 7 Denver’s Troy Renck. “You learn a lot, how hard he works and how focused he is on the pitch and on the board. You realize how tightly locked he is. I have learned a lot. He is a great midfielder. I’m excited to play with him.”
Jeudy missed part of the OTAs with a tense groin. But Jeudy has told the media that he was healthy before training camp.
He’s excited about the Broncos going into the 2022 season.
“I mean it’s going to be fun,” Jeudy said. “I feel like we are going to be a very explosive team. I felt like we had all the things we needed, so we had to put them together. And I’m glad that’s about to happen. “
Jeudy begins to help young people
The 2022 season has not been easy for Jeudy.
He was injured in OTAs and arrested after an argument with the mother of his child regarding property. Jeudy was remanded in custody on a second-degree charge of forgery with a domestic violence enhancer (misdemeanor). Prosecutors have denied tampering charges against Jeudy, which would preclude any NFL discipline against the 23-year-old.
On June 26, Jeudy held his first annual camp at the UCHealth Training Center. Seeing the kids play and learn the game of football brought Jeudy a lot of joy.
“I wanted to bring the community out here and have fun,” says Jeudy. “I think it’s best to do, and why not, at the Broncos facility? It’s fun for all the kids here. It was fun,” said Jeudy. “I have never attended anything like this. I started camping when I was in high school. Starting young is good for children. They learn fast and will learn a lot of new things.”
In Alabama, Jeudy won the National Championship in 2017 and was a two-time All-SEC First Place team. The person who was the first choice told the children that it is not easy to get to his position.
“It’s hard to get to this level,” says Jeudy. “I tell them if they stay focused and know what they really want in life, they can achieve it. That’s the biggest thing. Make sure you stay on top, stay focused and keep honing. “
Wilson Hype for the international game
The Broncos will face the Jaguars in London in Week 8 as part of the NFL’s International Series.
Wilson flew to London, England to promote the game this year.
The UK NFL Twitter account shared Wilson said, “Broncos fans, let’s go. Let’s ride a bike.”
“I’m so happy to be here in London, man. It was a lot of fun. Obviously, come here in 2018, win, a great experience for the whole week. I am very happy to be back at Wembley and play here.”
Wilson and the Seahawks won 27-3 over the Oakland Raiders at Wembley Stadium in 2018.
