Isaiah Burse’s Performance Should Earn Him a Spot on Denver Broncos’ Roster
The preseason finale for the Denver Broncos was a chance for players on the roster bubble to prove that they deserve a spot on the final roster. One player on the team took full advantage of that opportunity, and that player was Isaiah Burse.
Burse was signed by the team to help out on special teams with the departure of Trindon Holliday. While we have not seen the huge plays on kickoff and punt returns from Burse, I was impressed with his performance on offense. He ended up with 65 yards receiving and made two huge catches to keep the drives going. He turned into that slot receiver who was more of a security blanket for Brock Osweiler during the game against the Dallas Cowboys. It was a solid performance to see Burse making plays on the offensive side of the ball.
With Burse’s spot on the roster on the line, did he do enough to make the final 53-man roster? I believe he did. With Jordan Norwood placed on injured reserve and the future of Wes Welker in question to most people, it would be in the best interest of the Broncos to at least sign Burse onto the practice squad. If Welker was to get injured again, Burse could benefit and get some quality playing time. But he did a solid job as a returner as well. Minus the one fair catch that he nearly lost, he did show that he can properly secure the football and has the potential to return one. He may not have gotten a kick or punt return for a touchdown, but he is capable of doing so.
The team has until Aug. 30 to announce the 53-man roster for the 2014 season. I fully expect Burse’s name somewhere on that list when everything is said and done.
