The Denver Broncos held a second-round interview with Packers Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, in hopes of hiring him as their next head coach, but now insider reports say the Broncos are finalizing the deal to make this happen. 

This started early in January when the Broncos tweeted about some potential candidates to fill the position of head coach and replace Vic Fangio. Fans were excited by some of the potential candidates posted like Eagles Defensive Coordinator Jonathan Gannon. 

Fans shared their approval over the potential hire in some pretty funny and amusing posts. Some believe adding Hackett will help boost the Broncos out of what was a pretty ok season going 7-10 in the regular season with the team ranked 4th in the AFC West right behind the Chargers.  

Despite this change it seems their previous head coach may be moving on to the Jacksonville Jaguars as a replacement for their head coach. The Jaguars have yet to confirm this or make any official statements, but it would certainly be interesting to see him face off against his old team next season. 

Some say this addition of Hackett would do more harm than good compared to some of the other top picks despite Hackett having a long and extensive career working with the Packers, Bill’s and Jaguars. But what do you think? Will the Broncos be able to take the top spot in their division thanks to this addition? Join in on the discussion as we get closer to finding out who will be playing in the upcoming Big Game.
