DC Joe Woods installs ‘extra checks’ to stop opposing tight ends

Opposing tight ends have been running wild in the Broncos’ defensive secondary. In his press conference Thursday, defensive coordinator Joe Woods discussed how he doesn’t expect that to happen this week.

“In our base defense, we have coverages that can take care of tight ends; we haven’t executed it very well,” Woods said. “I put in some extra checks just to make sure we can take care of the tight end this week.”

Woods said that his players and the scheme aren’t the issue; it’s the execution.

“We’re capable, in terms of the players we have. We’re capable, in terms of the scheme we have. Right now, we’re just not executing very well.”
