Broncos trade rookie cornerback Carrie Vincent Jr. to Eagles due to “logjam on the corner”

A healing Broncos cornerback corps meant Carrie Vincent Jr., the team’s seventh-round pick this year, had a short stay in Denver.

General Manager George Patton dealt Vincent to the Eagles at the trade deadline on Tuesday in exchange for a sixth-round pick in 2022, a move prompted by the fact that the Broncos are about to get a healthy corner trio in Michael Ozemudia, Mike Ford. and Esang Bassi. Vincent was inactive for all eight games this year.

“(Vincent) is a gifted kid that we really like,” Patton said. “Actually, we had a standoff just around the corner. We have three players who are coming back, two off the IR list (Ojmudia and Ford) and one off the PUP list (Bassi). It will happen in the next couple of weeks, so we just had to take a step. So that’s a good problem.”

Third round pick Ozemudia in 2020 had an up-and-down rookie season in which he appeared in all 16 games. Ford was claimed exemption from Detroit on September 1 and is adding a solid special team. A source confirmed that Bassi, who tore his ACL last year, will see time in the nickel when he expects veteran Bryce Callahan to go on injured reserve.

Callahan was signed before the 2019 season but missed it all due to a foot injury, and was limited to eight games in 2020 due to a foot injury. He injured his knee on Sunday against Washington while defending the deep ball in the fourth quarter. After missing Sunday’s game in Dallas, he would be unavailable for 23 of 41 possible games as a Bronco.
