Broncos Trade Punter Riley Dixon to New York Giants

As president of Englewood, Colorado's Ventana Capital, Darwin Horan controls over $200 million in assets as well as 12,000 acres of land and 180,000 square feet of office space. An avid sports fan, Darwin Horan counts the Denver Broncos as his favorite National Football League (NFL) team.

The Broncos recently signed former Oakland Raiders punter Marquette King in an effort to improve competition at the position in training camp, but it appears as though King will be the uncontested starting punter when the 2018 season begins. That's because on April 23 the team traded punter Riley Dixon to the New York Giants in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

A native of New York, Dixon played for Syracuse University before being selected by the Broncos in the seventh-round of the 2016 NFL draft. He made the team out of training camp the following season by beating out veteran Brandon Colquitt for the job, and has since been one of the most active punters in the league. Through 32 games, Dixon has 162 punts for a combined 7,399 yards, for an average of 45.7 yards per punt. He posted a career-best 68-yard punt as a rookie in 2016.
