Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said Wednesday that Butt (knee) should be "full go" for Organized Team Activities, Zac Stevens of BSN Denver reports.

Butt, a 2017 fifth-round pick, was inactive for his entire rookie campaign after tearing his ACL last January in his final game at Michigan. Prior to suffering the injury and requiring surgery, Butt was considered one of the top players at his position in the draft class, so now that he's back to full strength, there's a chance he could begin to make good on his considerable upside. The Broncos didn't make much use of their tight ends in the passing game in 2017 and could bid adieu to starter Virgil Green in free agency, potentially opening the door for Butt to settle into a prominent role if Denver doesn't add a more established option at the position this offseason.
