Patrick (leg) returned to practice over the weekend, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official website reports.
EDGE Analysis
Patrick was held out Friday with a sore leg but apparently didn't miss much time. He's competing with KJ Hamler (reserve/COVID-19) for the No. 3 receiver job, though the loser of the battle also figures to have a role of some sort in the Denver offense.

Patrick was held out of Friday's practice to rest a sore leg, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
EDGE Analysis
It's unclear if this is related to the hamstring injury that caused Patrick to miss a few days of OTAs in early June. At the time, coach Vic Fangio said the hamstring injury was "very, very minor," and there was no report of Patrick being limited earlier this week at the start of training camp. He's likely competing with KJ Hamler for the No. 3 receiver role, but both figure to get some snaps and targets even if Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy also stay healthy.

Patrick (hamstring) has been participating in training camp practices, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
A minor hamstring issue cropped up for Patrick during OTAs, but he's back out there, competing for slotting in a Denver wideout corps that welcomes back top option Courtland Sutton (knee). With Sutton and Jerry Jeudy atop the team's depth chart, Patrick figures to compete this summer with KJ Hamler for Denver's No. 3 WR spot.

Coach Vic Fangio indicated after Monday's OTA that Patrick sat with a "very, very slight hamstring" injury, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Fangio noted that Patrick probably could have practiced, so this was likely a case of the team just taking precautions to ensure nothing more comes of the issue. Barring a setback of some kin, Patrick could be back on the field for one of the upcoming OTA sessions.

Patrick signed the second-round tender he received from the Broncos on Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
The 27-year-old became a restricted free agent this offseason but was never likely to head elsewhere after Denver extended him a second-round tender. Patrick is coming off a productive 2020 campaign in which he caught 51 of 79 targets for 742 yards and six touchdowns in 15 games, and he should enter training camp as the team's No. 3 wideout behind Courtland Sutton (knee) and Jerry Jeudy.

The Broncos extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent Patrick (foot) on Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Denver's decision likely will stop other organizations from extending Patrick an offer sheet, but the wide receiver fared well in his third pro season in 2020, turning 79 targets into 51 catches for 742 yards and six touchdowns. Furthermore, 23 of his 90 career receptions have gone for 20-plus yards, so he does boast field-stretching ability, despite mostly uneven quarterback play through three campaigns.

The Broncos are expected to place a second-round tender on restricted free agent Patrick (foot), Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
EDGE Analysis
The move would help ensure Patrick remains a Bronco in 2021, as Denver would have the opportunity to match any offer the receiver attracts on the open market. Furthermore, any bargaining team would have to surrender a second-round draft pick to the Broncos in order to acquire Patrick's services. During his third active pro season in 2020, Patrick composed three separate 100-yard receiving performances. His six receiving touchdowns, meanwhile, were twice as many as any other player on the team. Courtland Sutton's return from a torn ACL would likely dampen Patrick's target share. Then again, Patrick may benefit from more single-coverage situations if operating opposite Sutton and promising sophomore wideout Jerry Jeudy.

Broncos general manager George Paton stated the team intends to apply a restricted free agent tender to Patrick (foot), Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
EDGE Analysis
Though Paton didn't go into details on the upcoming transaction, Renck expects Patrick to draw a second-round tender. With Courtland Sutton (knee) unavailable Weeks 3 through 17 of last season, Patrick stepped into a prime role in the Broncos' offense, nearly quadrupling his previous career high with 15 starts. The 27-year-old's six receiving scores led the team, while his 742 receiving yards were surpassed by only Jerry Jeudy. Patrick was forced to sit out Denver's season finale against Las Vegas because of a foot sprain, but he's expected to be recuperated in time for Broncos OTAs this spring. That is, so long as another team doesn't bite on the tender and extract Patrick from the team's receiving corps.

Patrick caught 51 of 79 passes for 742 yards and six touchdowns during the 2020 campaign.
EDGE Analysis
Patrick was arguably the bright spot in what was a disappointing season in Denver. Though he topped 50 yards just four times, and never after Week 11, the former undrafted free agent was the Broncos' most consistent option and was a difference maker in wins against the Jets and Patriots. He should be tendered in restricted free agency, but expect a downtick in his contract season. Patrick benefitted from being WR2 through most of the season. That likely won't be the case with Courtland Sutton (2021) back in the fold and Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler with a year under their belts.

Patrick is nursing a foot sprain, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
EDGE Analysis
Patrick managed to avoid any sort of break in his foot, so he should be on track to fully recover in time for the beginning of Denver's offseason activities. The 27-year-old is coming off his best campaign as a pro, with 51 catches (79 targets) for 742 yards and six scores across 15 games. Perhaps even more impressively, Patrick had three performances with over 100 receiving yards in 2020.
