Bouye was traded to Denver from Jacksonville for a fourth-round draft pick during this offseason. Heading into his eighth season in the NFL, Bouye was going to be used to fill the void left by the departure of Chris Harris Jr. to the L.A. Chargers this offseason. Now the Broncos will have to rely on a pair of rookie cornerbacks to limit Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers' passing attack in Week 2.
