Courtland Sutton wants to finish his career in Denver, but he does not rule out staying at the camp

Broncos receiver Courtland Sutton wants to stay in Denver for the rest of his career, but he also wants his contract reworked. He clarified both issues on Wednesday.

It is not clear whether he will report to the start of the training camp without a raise.

“We’ll see. We’ll see what happens. I have a month to be able to locate things,” Sutton said in a video recorded by Troy Renck of the Denver Post Office. “I hope things get better, because as you all heard, I will continue to say: this is where I want to be. This is a house. That’s where I want to lift the Lombardi trophy. This is where I want to be able to retire. This is a place where I can hopefully exhibit enough when my career is over to be eligible for a spot in the Bronco Ring of Honor. These are all things that have to be earned.”

Sutton missed the voluntary portion of the offseason program and remained in Florida to rehab an ankle injury. He attended mandatory minicamp this week to avoid a fine of approximately $100,000.

“Coach (Sean Payton) and I were on the same page as far as whether I could stay at this level and still get the ankle condition that I needed to finally get ready for the season,” Sutton said.

He has two years left on the four-year, $60 million extension he signed in November 2021, but Sutton only has $2 million left guaranteed of the remaining $27.6 million.

“Obviously it’s a topic that’s been talked about,” Sutton said. “My team and I have been in contact with the guys upstairs who are handling all this. We kind of went back and forth trying to figure out the best way to find a middle ground in this situation. In a sense, we were at an impasse. However, I am confident that the right decision will be made.”

Sutton was the Broncos’ starting receiver last season, leading the team with 59 catches, 772 yards and 10 touchdowns.
