The Denver Broncos secondary is going to be quite different in 2020. They have already traded for A.J. Bouye and will finally have last years’ free-agent signing Bryce Callahan in the mix, however letting Chris Harris Jr. walk. Now they pen De’Vante Bausby to a one-year contract at the veteran minimum. Under the new CBA, that puts his salary at $750,000.

The 27-y-o was a star in the now-defunct AAF league and flashed promise early last campaign before suffering a horror neck/spine injury that forced him on injured reserve and a road to recovery.
“They said I was paralyzed for the first 30 minutes,” Bausby said of his injury. “I was awake the whole time. I was never unconscious, I just couldn’t move. But I was still talking and everything and the doctor said I’ll be fine and I trusted him and after 30 minutes, I was able to wiggle my toes and after a couple hours, I gained full mobility.”
