Between his shoulder injury and PED suspension, Bouye was limited to just seven games last year after coming over from the Jaguars. The cornerback has two games to go on his ban, so he won’t be able to suit up for his next team until Week 3.
Bouye went from a UDFA in 2013 to one of the league’s highest paid defensive backs. After some solid seasons with the Texans, he scored a five-year, $67.5MM deal from the Jaguars in 2017. Unfortunately, Bouye didn’t live up to expectations in the long run — to be fair, most of the Jaguars’ defensive players were lackluster during that stretch. The Broncos agreed to take him on last year, in exchange for a fourth-round pick.
Bouye did impress in his first Jacksonville season, earning second-team All-Pro honors with six interceptions. There’s reason to believe that Bouye could pan out on a low-cost deal, especially since he’s still only 29, but he won’t get that chance in Denver.
