According to Schefter, the Broncos are considering Beck playing a hybrid role in attacking newly hired head coach Nathaniel Hackett this coming season.
Andrew Beck is a 6’3″, 255-pound tight end/fullback who joined the Broncos in 2019 when they led a variation of the West Coast offense. He was also a Broncos fullback and tight end for I expect him to serve in that same role this coming year and to be used more than he has been in the past two seasons with Pat Shurmur in charge .
Beck has been with the Broncos for three seasons and his last recorded catch was in 2019 when he caught 9 balls for 90 yards and a touchdown. I would expect him to add to that number this coming season.
With the Broncos trading Noah Fant, Albert O. is currently penciled in as a starter, but Beck could serve as a depth option behind him as well as play fullback when needed. There is a place on the roster for Beck if he wins it, and it looks like general manager George Paton and head coach Nathaniel Hackett think he can earn that spot as well.
