While the Broncos’ phone line will be very active between now and the NFL trade deadline (October 30), there are some moves they should avoid making beyond some type of ridiculous offer coming through.
For example, the Oakland Raiders trading Amari Cooper is foolish until you realize they recouped what will likely be a first-round pick for a player who is not living up to high expectations lately.
If the Broncos are blown away by an offer for one of these players, they would have to consider it, but it seems like they are going to get much more from Sanders, Harris, and Barrett on the field than they would in terms of draft compensation.
As a general rule, however, if you can get a first-round pick for a player, it’s hard to turn that down. I don’t see the Broncos getting offered that kind of capital for any of these players, but you never know as desperate as some teams get in the NFL.
The NFL trade deadline is getting more and more active every year it seems, and with the state the Broncos are currently in as a franchise, this year could be a year of many goodbyes.
