The Denver Broncos are gearing up for an NFL season with high hopes.

Trading for Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson alone gives them a leader that can lead their talented offense to greater heights.

That’s why fans hope that he can replicate his success when he was still with the Seattle Seahawks.

He won the Super Bowl there and that’s what the Broncos are expecting.

After all, their last playoff appearance came in 2015 when they won Super Bowl 50.

However, the team is experiencing some setbacks leading into the 2022 season.

Though the operation was successful, wide receiver Tim Patrick is still in danger of missing out on the entire season due to a torn ACL on his right knee.

Meanwhile, Jonas Griffith will miss 4-6 weeks due to an elbow injury.

However, the Broncos have signed his replacement to fill the void.

NFL Network national insider Ian Rapoport tweeted, “The #Broncos are signing veteran LB Joe Schobert, source said, some important help at a key spot. Schobert, who starred for the #Browns and most recently was with the #Steelers, recently tried out in Denver. He helps fill the void created by an injury to Jonas Griffith.”

 

A Quick Glance At Schobert’s Career

The former Wisconsin standout was selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

After suiting up for the Cleveland Browns, he suited up for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Pittsburgh Steelers before joining the Broncos.

Last season, Schobert had 70 solo tackles, an interception, and a forced fumble.

Aside from Griffith, the 2017 Pro Bowler will also join a defense that has Pat Surtain II, Justin Simmons, Bradley Chubb, and Randy Gregory.

Schobert hopes to contribute to making the Broncos a playoff team again.
