Through free agency and the draft, the Denver Broncos have built a much different roster than they finished the 2019 season with.

The Broncos made some big moves in the offseason to acquire A.J. Bouye and Jurrell Casey before drafting two talented receivers in the first round. Those moves highlight the team’s offseason, but there is work to be done to shape the final roster.

As teams sit at 90-man rosters, there is sometimes a need for some creativity to trim things down to the league-mandated number of players on the squad. It’s easy to just waive players, but sometimes, if something can be had for a player that no longer fits on the team, that possibility should always be explored.

The Broncos have a few of those players on the current roster and while they could each make the team in 2020, the Broncos might benefit from shopping each of them around.

This is not to say that the team would be able to fetch a king’s ransom for any of these players. In fact, they would likely only receive a late-round pick in exchange for a couple of them, but that is certainly better than nothing.

Trades should be considered by every team. The New England Patriots seem to make one several times per season and in most cases, those moves work out for them.

So which players could the Broncos be looking to move on from and ship elsewhere before the 2020 season starts?

The team has acquired enough depth at certain position groups to be able to move on from players who may now be expendable. Who are they? Have a look.
