Denver Broncos: Players that could be traded by week one
Denver drafted Paxton Lynch in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft despite being labeled a project. A lot of work was to be done before he was ready.
Lynch has been unable to get onto the field due to two reasons. Not being able to leapfrog Trevor Siemain and injury.
Now, the quarterback room consists of Lynch, Case Keenum, and Chad Kelly (Mr. Irrelevent, 2017). Kelly is now healthy and will compete with Lynch in training camp for the backup spot behind Keenum. It would not surprise me if Kelly happens to beat out Lynch to become QB2.
It would be very interesting to see who, if anybody, puts in a trade request for the former first-round quarterback. Teams that needed a quarterback drafted one in April. The only chance this could happen is if a major injury happens to a starter in the league.

There are better options around the league that teams could trade for. The Broncos would need to sweeten the pot in a trade that includes Lynch to pull it off. It seems highly unlikely that anybody would trade for Lynch. Especially due to him being unable to get on the field.
Lynch has seen action in just five games in two seasons with the Denver Broncos. In those five games, he has recorded a 61.7 completion percentage, 792 total yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions.
