The Denver Broncos got some problematic news on Monday when they learned that wideout Tim Patrick would miss the entirety of next season after suffering a torn ACL during camp. On Wednesday, the team would place him on Injured Reserve and replace his roster spot with former NY Giants cornerback Fabian Moreau.
Moreau will join Denver's crowded defensive back room, which includes Patrick Surtain II, Damarri Mathis, and K'Waun Williams. Head coach Sean Payton has quite the task ahead of him with the AFC West side, but fans are feeling hopeful.
Moreau is a 2017 third-round selection by the Washington Commanders, where he spent his first four seasons in the NFL before signing with the Atlanta Falcons for the 2021 season.
Last season, he posted 66 tackles and 10 passes defended in 14 appearances and 11 starts with Big Blue. Moreau was crucial in making the game-winning tackle at the one-yard line to stop wide receiver Christian Kirk from scoring - lifting the Giants to a Week 7 road victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Most of the Giants players who hit free agency this offseason have found a home for the 2023 NFL campaign. However, a few may be without a team once Week 1 arrives.
Kenny Golladay remains unsigned in free agency
Before the 2021 season, the New York Giants signed wideout Kenny Golladay to a four-year, $72 million contract. After two 1,000-yard seasons in four years with the Detroit Lions, he was expected to break out in East Rutherford, but that was not the case.
In 26 games with the G-Men, Golladay caught just 43 passes for 603 yards and had one touchdown. The Giants would release him after two seasons on March 15, the first day of the new league year.
Golladay remains a free agent and has yet to find a new home for the 2023 NFL season. It feels like a long shot that he'll make an NFL roster in the near future, but you never know if an organization will give him a second chance.
