On a crowded depth chart, Hamilton was buried.
The Broncos selected Hamilton in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
He was a good slot receiver at Penn State. Hamilton has 53 catches for 857 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior.
Hamilton’s ability to lead was also seen as a strength. According to Lance Zierlien of NFL Network, an unidentified AFC scout said:
“You deal with some very wonderful folks and some not so good guys in this position.” He’s one of the greatest in the business. I believe he will go undrafted, but I also believe that football will play just a minor role in his life.”
Hamilton, however, never established himself as a reliable playmaker for the Broncos. Hamilton caught 30 of his 45 targets for 243 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. He also had three punt returns for 31 yards.
In his second season, Hamilton took on a somewhat greater role, playing a career-high 653 offensive snaps. Despite this, Hamilton’s numbers stayed consistent, with 28 catches for 298 yards and a score.
Hamilton and quarterback Drew Lock failed to communicate in 2020. Only 23 of Hamilton’s 44 targets were caught. When targeting Hamilton, the Broncos’ quarterbacks threw three interceptions and had a passer rating of 60.1.
Last summer, Hamilton tore his ACL, and he will miss the whole 2021 season. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Hamilton was supposed to be moved to the San Francisco 49ers before to his injury.
According to a source, the Broncos are releasing wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton today. Hamilton is thought to have completely healed from his ruptured ACL last offseason. Before his injury in 2021, Hamilton was supposed to be dealt to San Francisco, and the former fourth-round selection is likely to attract attention.

On March 8, the Broncos officially released him.
The Broncos’ wide receiver depth chart is currently congested. If Hamilton had returned, he would have played a minor part since Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Tim Patrick, and K.J. Hamler were all ahead of him on the depth chart.
In Houston, Hamilton has a better chance of succeeding.
Hamilton should be given a chance to make an impact in Houston. The Texans needed to bolster their depth at wide out. Their depth chart is wide open behind veteran Brandin Cooks and 2021 third-round selection Nico Collins.
Last season, the Texans put a lot of faith in Cooks. In all, he was targeted 134 times in 16 games.
Cooks flourished in his new position, setting a new career best with 90 catches. His efficiency also increased. Cooks also set career highs in yards after catch (357), as well as broken tackles (four) (five).
As a rookie, Collins showed some encouraging indicators. He finished eighth among rookie wide receivers with 446 receiving yards.
Collins has all of the physical attributes necessary to excel as a wide receiver. He is 6’4′′ tall and ran the 40-yard sprint in 4.43 seconds during his Pro Day.
Cooks and Collins are the Texans’ top two wide receivers, but Hamilton has a clear road to being the third option. Aside from Cooks and Collins, no other wide receiver on the Texans had more than 40 targets last season.
Hopefully, the former Bronco will be able to make the most of his chance.
