What are the odds of the Denver Broncos landing Antonio Brown? OddsShark has the answer.
It is becoming increasingly obvious that Antonio Brown will not be a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers very much longer. The Denver Broncos are a potential destination for the disgruntled wideout.
Just how likely is a Brown-Broncos relationship to happen? OddsShark puts the chances at +1000.
That leaves seven other teams, including the Steelers, with greater odds of landing probably the best wide receiver in the entire league.
The Broncos have a pretty solid wide receiver group, with Emmanuel Sanders leading the way, with Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton following behind.
Of course, Sanders’ status hinges on his recovery success from a torn Achilles’ tendon suffered late in the 2018 season.
As for Brown, I personally would be very skeptical of the move to sign him. I just feel like the Broncos would not want any part of what Brown could potentially bring into the locker room.
Yes, the talent is obviously there, but it’s off the field that I am worried about. It is possible that he would be happy wherever he ends up, as long as it is not in Pittsburgh.
But again, I feel like if the Broncos signed Brown, it would not send a positive message to the team. No, Denver does not have a Brown-type wide receiver, but they should bet on the young guys they already have.
Denver currently has $37,522,409 in cap space. Yes, that is a lot of money but would they be willing to pay Antonio Brown? I doubt it.
Brown’s 2018 base salary with the Steelers would be $12,625,000 if they had chosen to keep him. He wants more. There are currently twelve other teams that have more cap space than the Broncos.
Some of those teams have a bigger need at the wide receiver position than Denver and are way more likely to pursue his services.
Color me shocked if, somehow, Antonio Brown ends up in the Mile High City.
Not going to happen.
