Denver Broncos options to replace Von Miller for 2020 season
4. Trades with the Washington Football Team
The Denver Broncos have made some trades with the Washington Football Team in the past, and they could re-kindle that relationship if Washington is up for it.
There were some rumors around the time rosters were being cut that Washington’s Ryan Anderson could potentially be on the trade block.
Anderson may not be the only pass rusher the Broncos could ask about from Washington, either. The team also lists former first-round pick Ryan Kerrigan as a backup.
Anderson would only cost Denver just over $1.1 million this season while Kerrigan would cost over $11 million.
Neither player would cost Washington much at all in terms of dead money. In fact, Kerrigan has no dead money left on his deal.
Anderson hadn’t seen much extensive playing time until last year when he played 49 percent of the defensive snaps and finished with 19 pressures and four sacks. Those are pretty solid numbers for a guy who only played 49 percent of snaps, but Kerrigan is much more proven with 90 career sacks.
Kerrigan had 25 pressures and 5.5 sacks in just 12 games last year, but he reached double digits in each of the three seasons before that.
While Anderson would be a nice depth addition and worthwhile one-year shot, Kerrigan is a guy who could legitimately keep the ship afloat, so to speak.
With Ron Rivera coming in and changing up the defensive scheme, both players could be available for the right price and the Washington Football Team has Chase Young and Montez Sweat atop their depth chart at defensive end.
