Courtland Sutton’s Production Unaffected by Denver’s QB Carousel

Despite having nine different quarterback’s during his Denver Broncos short NFL career, wide receiver Courtland Sutton has remained quite consistent in his on the field production.

Sutton, 28-years-old, is seeking a long-term contract and has been in talks as a potential trade candidate this offseason. Many Pittsburgh Steelers fans and analysts believe pairing Sutton with quarterback Russell Wilson in the Steel City would be beneficial for the offense. While the trade talks have slowed down over the last several weeks, it is always intriguing to look at his production over the years.

Recently on X, formerly Twitter, Field Vision Sports posted Sutton’s profile from the 2023 season. They claim that Sutton is not a number one receiver on his football team, but despite that claim, he is elite at catching intermediate routes but struggles mildly in the short area of the field (0-10 yards).

Even though the statistical chart that is shown above displays his strengths and weaknesses, it does fail to show just how consistent Sutton has been since coming into the league in 2018.

2018: 42 receptions, 704 yards, 4 TDs.

2019: 72 receptions, 1,112 yards, 6 TDs.

2020: Injured (Torn ACL)

2021: 58 receptions, 776 yards, 2 TDs.

2022: 64 receptions, 829 yards, 2 TDs.

2023: 59 receptions, 772 yards, 10 TDs.

Total: 298 receptions for 4,259 yards and 24 TDs

Do not forget that Sutton had to adapt to nine different NFL quarterbacks (not including this season), but statistically remained quite similar in his production.

He only had one 1,000 yard NFL season, but last year proved to be a red zone/ jump ball threat, making specular catches that made fans go “WOW!”. (Like this one… or this one)

Coach Cody Alexander on X mentioned that he is “one of the best jump ball WRs in the league” and “owns the sticks outside”. Honestly, as a Steelers fan, I thought he would be a perfect fit opposite of receiver George Pickens. Pair that with quarterback Russell Wilson already having chemistry with him from last season’s Broncos games, and you have what seems like a perfect match. However, the caveat is his expensive contract and how much that would be.

One thing is for certain, Sutton deserves a decent pay day and contract extension as he is a solid offensive weapon for the Broncos, even heading into 2024 with new weapons and a new quarterback in Bo Nix.
