The Facts: Heuerman is re-signing with the Broncos.
Diehards Line: Per 9New.com's Mike Klis, Heuerman's contract has a max value of $9 million over two years and the Broncos have their starting tight end back. Heuerman missed his entire rookie season (2015) with the Broncos after suffering a torn ACL in his very first rookie minicamp. Upon his return to the field in 2016, Heuerman played 12 games, again struggling with injuries. That was an unfortunately common theme for him throughout his time in Denver, which included somewhat of a breakout season in 2018. Heuerman caught 31 passes for 281 yards this past season after missing a good chunk of training camp, catching two touchdown passes and proving himself as a solid all-around option. Then, the injury bug bit hard again, and Heuerman suffered fractured ribs. Heading into this season, it's worth noting new QB Joe Flacco's affinity for throwing to the tight end position.
