Broncos' Lucas Krull: Plays seven games in 2023
Krull finished the 2023 season with eight catches on 14 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown.
Krull appeared in just seven contests in his first season with the Broncos after spending much of the 2023 campaign on Denver's practice squad. The 25-year-old tight end started his NFL career in New Orleans, appearing in just one game with the Saints. Krull's touchdown in Week 16 of this season was the first of his career while he played a depth role with Greg Dulcich (foot) on injured reserve at the end of the season. The 6-foot-6, 260-pounder is under contract with the Broncos through the 2024 season, so he'll head into the offseason competing to play a larger role in the Denver's offense.... See More ...

Broncos' Lucas Krull: Quiet in Week 17
Krull secured both of his targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 16-9 win over the Chargers.
Krull played 33 percent of the team's offensive snaps behind fellow tight ends Adam Trautman (49) and Chris Manhertz (33). The 25-year-old's involvement on offense took a dip in Week 17 after he saw five targets in Week 16. With limited opportunities, Krull remains far off the fantasy radar heading into a Week 18 matchup with the Raiders.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Lucas Krull: Hits paydirt in loss
Krull secured four of five targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Patriots.
Krull's touchdown was his first of the season, while his four receptions were also his most over five appearances in 2023. The 25-year-old played 32 percent of Denver's offensive snaps, trailing fellow tight ends Adam Trautman (49) and Chris Manhertz (35). Despite the limited playing time, Krull's five targets were tied for a team-high in the contest. Even with his increased usage Sunday, Krull should remain far off the fantasy radar when the Broncos host the Chargers in Week 17.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Lucas Krull: Added to active roster
The Broncos signed Krull to their 53-man roster Saturday, Parker Gabriel of The Denver Post reports.
Krull had already been elevated to the practice squad three times this season, so it was necessary for Denver to sign him to the active roster in order for him to suit up Saturday. He caught the first pass of his NFL career last week against the Chargers, gaining 35 yards on the play. Krull's spot on the team has arrived with Greg Dulcich (hamstring) on injured reserve, though Dulcich has been designated to return and could be back as soon as next week.... See More ... See Less
Lucas Krull: Back down to practice squad
The Broncos reverted Krull to the practice squad Monday.
Krull was elevated to the active roster for the third time this season in Sunday's win over the Chargers. He played 19 snaps -- 17 on offense, two on special teams -- and caught his only target for 35 yards. If the Broncos want to utilize Krull again they'll have to sign him to the active roster, as he's reached the maximum amount of elevations from the practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Lucas Krull: Joins active roster
The Broncos elevated Krull to their active roster Saturday.
After playing 22 offensive snaps in Denver's Week 13 loss to the Texans, Krull has been elevated to the team's active roster once again. Krull has appeared in three games over the course of his two-year career, and he'll look to log his first NFL catch in Week 14.... See More ... See Less
Lucas Krull: Returns to practice squad
Krull reverted to the Broncos' practice squad Monday.
Krull was part of Denver's active roster for the second time this year, falling to reel in his only target, which was ultimately a game-ending interception thrown by Russell Wilson. The tight end will now wait for his next chance to appear in a game with the Broncos.... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Lucas Krull: Bumped up Saturday
The Broncos elevated Krull to their active roster Saturday, Chris Tomasson of The Denver Gazette reports.
Krull has spent the majority of the season on Denver's practice squad, and he's now been activated to the team's active roster for the second time this year. The 25-year-old tight end saw playing time in the Broncos' Week 10 win over the Bills, as he was on the field for a total of 26 snaps (20 offensive and six on special teams).... See More ... See Less
Broncos' Lucas Krull: Bumped up from practice squad
Krull was elevated from the Broncos' practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Bills, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Krull joined Denver's practice squad in September and should receive his first game action with the team, which would be just his second career NFL appearance after suiting up for one game with the Saints in 2022. The Pittsburgh product may still have difficulty getting on the field and will be more likely to see snaps on special teams than offense.... See More ... See Less
Lucas Krull: Joins Denver's practice squad
Krull signed with Denver's practice squad Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Krull will head to Denver after getting waived as part of New Orleans' final roster cuts. The 2022 undrafted free agent appeared in just one game during his rookie season and did not receive a target.... See More ... See Less
Lucas Krull: Waived by New Orleans
The Saints waived Krull on Tuesday.
Krull appeared in one game for the Saints last year but didn't see a target across nine offensive snaps. The Pittsburgh product led the Saints in receiving yards during the preseason finale, tallying seven catches on 15 targets for 106 yards, so he's presumably a candidate to rejoin New Orleans on a practice-squad deal if he clears waivers....

Saints' Lucas Krull: Leading receiver in preseason loss
Krull caught seven of 15 targets for 106 yards during Sunday's 17-13 preseason defeat against Houston.
Krull led the Saints' receiving corps in targets, receptions and catches against Houston, though he did not haul in the team's lone passing touchdown. Instead, quarterback Jameis Winston hit 36-year-old tight end Jimmy Graham for a three-yard score early in the second quarter. While Krull's performance in the Saints' preseason finale was impressive, it likely won't secure him a roster spot ahead of Tuesday's cutdown deadline, as the team appears very deep at tight end with Juwan Johnson, Foster Moreau and Graham rounding out the top three while Taysom Hill (oblique) slots into his usual jack-of-all-trades role. Krull did spend much of last season on New Orleans' practice squad, and he seems like a shoo-in to reprise his role so long as he doesn't get picked up by another team prior to the regular season....

Saints' Lucas Krull: Sees eight targets in preseason win
Krull (tailbone) caught three of eight targets for 30 yards in the Saints' preseason win over the Chargers on Sunday night.

Saints' Lucas Krull: Still dealing with injury
Krull (tailbone) isn't expected to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Chiefs, John Hendrix of SI.com reports.
Krull is likely on the outside looking in when it comes to the team's final 53-man roster after he spent most of 2022 on the practice squad. However, he'll need to get back on the field to have a chance, which he'll work to do in the coming days.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Lucas Krull: Inks futures contract
The Saints signed Krull to a reserve/future contract Monday.
Krull signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent in May and joined the team's practice squad after failing to make the initial 53-man roster. He drew one elevation and made his NFL debut in Week 13, but he didn't record any counting stats across nine offensive snaps. With his new contract, Krull will have a chance to compete for a roster spot during offseason work.... See More ... See Less
Lucas Krull: Back to practice squad
Krull reverted to the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction report.
Krull operated as team's No. 3 tight end in Monday's loss to the Buccaneers. He saw 11 snaps on offense, but he failed to record any stats. With the Saints now on a bye, Juwan Johnson (ankle) will have extra time to heal before seeing the Falcons in Week 15. However, if Johnson were to remain out, Krull could have another opportunity with the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Lucas Krull: Bumped up to active roster
The Saints elevated Krull from the practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Buccaneers, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Krull has been on New Orleans' practice squad since being waived as part of the team's final roster cuts in late August. The undrafted rookie caught 38 passes for 451 yards and six touchdowns during his final collegiate season with Pittsburgh. With starting tight end Juwan Johnson (ankle) ruled out against Tampa Bay, Krull should slot in behind Adam Trautman, as Taysom Hill has not seen much usage as a traditional tight end so far this season....
