  • Broncos' Nik Bonitto: Impressive in sophomore season

    Bonitto (calf) recorded 30 tackles (23 solo), including eight sacks, two passes defensed and one forced fumble over 15 contests during the 2023 campaign.

    Bonitto took a major step forward in his second season, recording the second-highest sack total (eight) among Broncos defenders after recording just 1.5 sacks as a rookie. The 24-year-old linebacker also led Denver with 13 total tackles for loss. Bonitto has proven to be a solid member of the Broncos improving defense and will look to continue to make an impact with the team, as he is under contract through the 2025 season. The one-time second-round selection should continue to see his role grow in Denver in 2024.

  • Broncos' Nik Bonitto: Notches 1.5 sacks in win

    Bonitto recorded two tackles (one solo), including 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 29-12 win over the Browns.

    Bonitto also added one pass defended and one tackle for loss in the contest. The veteran linebacker's 1.5 sacks were his first since Week 5, bringing his total to a team-high seven sacks for the season.

  • Broncos' Nik Bonitto: Two sacks in loss

    Bonitto recorded two sacks in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Jets.

    Bonitto's two solo sacks were his only tackles in the contest. Through five games, the 24-year-old linebacker has recorded 15 tackles (12 solo), 5.5 sacks and one forced fumble. Leading the Broncos in sacks, Bonitto is proving to be a difference-maker on Denver's defense. The veteran will look to continue to build off of this performance in Week 6, but his ability to get to the quarterback will be tested against Patrick Mahomes in a divisional matchup with the Chiefs.
