Broncos reach contract agreements with 6th-round receiver Seth Williams, 7th-round corner Kary Vincent Jr.

Williams put up big stats his last two years at Auburn. Vincent was a two-sport star at LSU who is a world class sprinter who also plays the slot.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Kary Vincent Jr., a track speedster and projected slot corner who was one of the Broncos’ 7th-round draft picks, reached agreement Wednesday afternoon with the team on a four-year, $3.58 million contract, a league source told 9NEWS.

Later Wednesday, 9news learned the Broncos had also reached a four-year contract agreement with sixth-round receiver Seth Williams.

Vincent was a two-sport athlete at LSU, a starting corner for the Tigers’ national championship team in 2019 and 100 meter sprinter for their track team. He opted out last year as a senior because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In track, he ran the 100 meters in a wind-aided 10.07 seconds. He also ran lead leg on LSU’s 4 X 100 relay team.

At 5-10, 185 pounds, Vincent is projected to eventually play the inside corner position with the Broncos. He received a $103,412 signing bonus as part of a four-year, $3,583,412 contract. His annual salaries are the league minimum $660,000 for rookies in 2021; $825,000 for first-year players in 2022; $940,000 in 2023 and $1.055 million in 2024.

Williams caught a combined 106 passes for 1,590 yards and 12 touchdowns in his sophomore and junior seasons at Auburn. He is 6-foot-3, 211 pounds so he gives the Broncos' big-body receiver depth as Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick are both eligible for free agency after the 2021 season. As a rookie, Williams will primarily be asked to contribute on special teams. 

Broncos rookies report for their minicamp Wednesday night. It will run through Sunday. Williams, Vincent and fifth-round safety Caden Sterns are the first three of the Broncos’ 10 draft picks to reach agreements on contracts.
