Another Broncos receiver is hanging up his cleats. Mike Klis of 9News.com reports that rookie wideout Romell Guerrier has decided to retire.
“This is something Romell has thought about since he ended OTAs,’’ said agent Sean Russi. “It’s something he’s discussed with his family. He’s seeking something in his degree background and he just wants to thank the Broncos for the opportunity.’’
Guerrier studied psychology (with a focus on underprivileged children) during his time at Florida Tech. The receiver reportedly told John Elway of the news on Friday morning.
The wideout had a breakout season in 2018 as a redshirt senior, hauling in 59 catches for 1,062 yards and 13 touchdowns. He went undrafted during April’s draft, but he quickly caught on with Denver, who handed him a $3,000 signing bonus. As with any undrafted free agent, Guerrier had an uphill battle to make the active roster, although the Broncos receiver depth is a bit shallow behind Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton.
