KJ Hamler goes airborne, soars for incredible first down vs Kansas City Chiefs
Former Penn State receiver KJ Hamler is starting to carve out a role for himself in the NFL.
Hamler was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 2nd round of the NFL draft earlier this year, and he’s battled injuries and quarterback inconsistency so far in Denver.
But against the Chiefs on Sunday, he showed off his signature speed for a big play:

Unfortunately for the Broncos, that play didn’t ignite a score as Denver is struggling with Kansas City’s defense. In addition to that rush, Hamler also had two catches for 24 yards through three quarters.
The Broncos had playoff aspirations entering the season, but have dealt with injuries to key players like Von Miller, Courtland Sutton and Drew Lock. This should be a good place for Hamler to get low-pressure reps for the remainder of his rookie season.
While at Penn State, Hamler caught 98 passes for 1,658 yards and 13 touchdowns across two seasons.
Entering this game with the Broncos, Hamler had recorded six catches for 78 yards.
