Krull finished the 2023 season with eight catches on 14 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown.

Krull appeared in just seven contests in his first season with the Broncos after spending much of the 2023 campaign on Denver's practice squad. The 25-year-old tight end started his NFL career in New Orleans, appearing in just one game with the Saints. Krull's touchdown in Week 16 of this season was the first of his career while he played a depth role with Greg Dulcich (foot) on injured reserve at the end of the season. The 6-foot-6, 260-pounder is under contract with the Broncos through the 2024 season, so he'll head into the offseason competing to play a larger role in the Denver's offense.

Quiet in Week 17

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-03

Krull secured both of his targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 16-9 win over the Chargers.

Krull played 33 percent of the team's offensive snaps behind fellow tight ends Adam Trautman (49) and Chris Manhertz (33). The 25-year-old involvement on offense took a dip in Week 17 after seeing five targets in Week 16. With limited opportunities, Krull remains far off the fantasy radar heading into a Week 18 matchup with the Raiders.

Hits pay dirt in loss

Krull secured four of five targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Patriots.

Krull's touchdown was his first of the season while his four catches were a season-high in the five games he has appeared. The 25-year-old played 32 percent of Denver's offensive snaps behind fellow tight ends Adam Trautman (49) and Chris Manhertz (35). Despite the limited playing time, Krull's five targets were tied for a team-high in the contest. Even with his increased usage Sunday, Krull should remain far off the fantasy radar when the Broncos host the Chargers in Week 17.

Added to active roster

The Broncos signed Krull to their 53-man roster Saturday, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports.

Krull had already been elevated to the practice squad three times this season, so it was necessary for Denver to sign him to the active roster in order for him to suit up Saturday. He caught the first pass of his NFL career last week against the Chargers, gaining 35 yards on the play. Krull's spot on the team has come with Greg Dulcich (hamstring) on injured reserve, though Dulcich has been designated to return and could be back as soon as next week.

Back down to practice squad

The Broncos reverted Krull to the practice squad Monday.

Krull was elevated to the active roster for the third time this season. He played 19 snaps -- 17 on offense, two on special teams -- and caught his only target for 35 yards. If the Broncos want to play Krull again this year, they'll have to sign him to the active roster as he's reached the maximum amount of elevations from the practice squad.

Joins active roster

The Broncos elevated Krull to their active roster Saturday.

After playing 22 offensive snaps in Denver's Week 13 loss to the Texans, Krull has been elevated to the team's active roster once again. Krull has appeared in three games over the course of his two-year career, and he'll look to log his first NFL catch in Week 14.

Returns to practice squad

Krull reverted to the Broncos' practice squad Monday.

Krull was part of Denver's active roster for the second time this year, falling to reel in his only target, which was ultimately a game-ending interception thrown by Russell Wilson. The tight end will now wait for his next chance to appear in a game with the Broncos.

Bumped up Saturday

The Broncos elevated Krull to their active roster Saturday, Chris Tomasson of The Denver Gazette reports.

Krull has spent the majority of the season on Denver's practice squad, and he's been activated to the team's active roster for the second time this year. The 25-year-old tight end saw playing time in the Broncos' Week 10 win over the Bills, as he was on the field for a total of 26 snaps (20 offensive and six on special teams).

Bumped up from practice squad

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-13

Krull was elevated from the Broncos' practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Bills, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

Krull joined Denver's practice squad in September and should receive his first game action with the squad, which would be just his second career NFL appearance after suiting up for one game with the Saints in 2022. The Pittsburgh product may still have difficulty getting on the field and will be more likely to see snaps on special teams than offense.
