Broncos Hire Davis Webb as QB Coach, Joe Lombardi Joins Sean Payton’s Staff, and Other NFL Bullets

Sean Payton and the Denver Broncos continue to round out their coaching staff. On Thursday, they hired Vance Joseph as their defensive coordinator. Later in the day, local Broncos reporter Mike Klis reported the hires of Davis Webb (QB Coach) and Michael Wilhoite (LB coach).

  • Webb spent the 2022 season backing up Daniel Jones with the New York Giants but now begins his NFL coaching career at just 28. Webb made his first NFL start and second career appearance this past season in a 22-16 Week 18 loss to the Eagles.
  • Before last season, Webb was considered a candidate for the Bills’ QB coaching position a candidate for the Bills’ QB coaching position before last season. However, the job was never formally offered. Webb was the third-string quarterback for the Bills and was asked if he would retire and take the job. Instead, Buffalo went with Joe Brady, and Webb signed with the Giants as a player.
  • Webb joins former Chargers OC Joe Lombardi in Denver. Lombardi’s title is yet to be announced, but he will play a role in grooming Webb. Lombardi twice served as Sean Payton’s quarterbacks coach in New Orleans. So, whenever Webb as a question as to what a quarterback is in Payton’s system, Lombardi will have the answer.
  • The Broncos also hired Keary Colbert as a receivers coach, per Klis:
  • Colbert was a second-round pick of the Panthers in 2004 after an excellent collegiate career at USC. As a free agent in 2008, Colbert signed a three-year, $7.2 million deal with the Broncos that included a $2.5 million signing bonus with the Broncos.
  • Colbert spent the previous five seasons as a receivers coach for USC (2018-21) and Florida (2022). Colbert will join Zack Strief (offensive line), Declan Doyle (tight ends), Logan Kilgore (offensive quality control), and Zack Grossi (offensive quality control) on head coach Sean Payton’s offensive staff.
  • Veteran linebacker Bobby Wagner is a free agent. Wagner and the Rams agreed to part ways on Thursday. Wagner signed a five-year, $50 million contract with the Los Angeles Rams last April. Wagner’s 2023 cap hit with the Rams was $12.5 million. Instead of restructuring, the cap-needy Rams decided to part ways with Wagner, saving them roughly $5 million.
  • Wagner was excellent in his lone season in Los Angeles in 2022. The veteran linebacker recorded 140 tackles (81 solos) and six sacks (career-high).
  • The New Orleans Saints love to kick the can down the road. They’ve already started it again this week. The Saints have used three restructured deals to create $22.9 million in cap space:
  • We love #wholesumcontent:
  • Despite the Ravens assertion that Lamar Jackson will be back in Baltimore at all costs, it appears that a happy ending is nowhere in sight.
  • Will he stay? Will he go? That’s the million-dollar question for the Patrick Kane and the Blackhawks right now. Thankfully, Tab has the situation thoroughly covered at BN Blackhawks:
