Update: Callahan has signed with the Broncos.
According to the Denver Posts Ryan O’Halloran, former Bears cornerback Bryce Callahan is visiting the Denver Broncos.
As you know, Callahan played four seasons with the Chicago Bears and flourished under Vic Fangio and Ed Donatell during that time and now could join them in Denver.
During his four year career in the NFL, Callahan has totaled 123 tackles, 4 sacks, 21 pass deflections, 4 interceptions, and 1 forced fumble. This past season with the Bears, Callahan had a bit of a breakout year under Vic Fangio. He totaled 45 tackles, 2 sacks, 6 pass deflections, 2 Interceptions, and one defensive touchdown. He had his season cut short due to a broken foot late in the year.
Callahan is primarily a slot corner and if signed by Denver he would likely fill that role as well and allow Chris Harris Jr. to play outside more. Harris himself is an excellent slot corner but he can also hold is own outside and has expressed his desire to play outside more as well so this move would allow that.
If Callahan ends up signing, this would give the Broncos three solid cornerbacks in Chris Harris Jr., Kareem Jackson, and potentially Bryce Callahan. It would also allow second-year cornerback Isaac Yiadom more time to develop and potentially push for a bigger role down the road.
On Bryce Callahan: If the #Broncos do sigh him, that says everything it needs to. Fangio knows his talent & coached him for 4 years. When healthy, he’s the best slot CB in the league. Plain & simple.

In the end, it depends the price but I have a good/hopeful feeling that this will end with a signing.
