3 trades the Broncos may consider this offseason

The Denver Broncos are going to need a new quarterback in 2024. Let’s look at some ways to gain draft capital for possible moves

The Denver Broncos need to continue improving their roster. They lost three first, second, and third-round picks in their acquisitions of both Russell Wilson and Sean Payton. Gaining draft picks and creating some cap space could be the order of the day for the Broncos this offseason. Here are three options I see as possible players the Broncos could trade to gain more picks in next year’s draft:

1) Russell Wilson

While it is far more likely that Wilson will be released given his contract situation, there is always a small chance that a team will see him as an easy bridge quarterback for a losing team to get on their feet.

It just takes one GM and we could see the Broncos get a day-two pick for a guy that still has a lot of gas left in the tank.

2) Courtland Sutton

I see this as a far more likely scenario. Courtland Sutton had a resurgence in 2023 and teams (COUGH BUFFALO BILLS COUGH) need receiver help. Sutton could bring the Broncos a 2nd or 3rd-round pick or be packaged in a trade to move up in the draft.

3) Patrick Surtain II

I’m not a fan of trading away the most talented young player on the roster, but if you want serious draft capital, this is the guy to trade away. Surtain should bring at least a 1st round pick if not multiple picks and that could go a long way in helping to build this roster.

Given the need for this team to find a new quarterback, that kind of option may be the necessary move to get Payton his guy and start a new chapter in the Denver Broncos book.
