3 trades the Broncos could consider before the 2020 deadline
1. Make a bold move for Jets DL Quinnen Williams
Not many bold moves would make sense for the Denver Broncos in 2020, but if they are going to make a big play for someone, it should be Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams.
It’s hard to know what Jets GM Joe Douglas would require in exchange for Williams, but let’s say he wants a first-round pick. Depending on where you fall in line with Drew Lock being the quarterback for the Broncos, at least for 2020-21, this is a move to consider.
If the Broncos are planning on Lock being the guy for not just 2020 but also for 2021 and seeing where things go, Williams is a piece you might consider paying the premium price for.
At the age of 22 and with all of this season plus three more of inexpensive team control on his contract, Williams is a terror on the interior defensive line and someone who could substantially upgrade the Broncos’ defense.
The Steelers’ model last season of acquiring a young, key piece to their defense like Fitzpatrick and then drafting an absolute star in the second round in Chase Claypool could embolden a team like the Broncos to make a huge move like this.
Is it likely based on the Jets’ likely asking price for Williams, if he is even available at all? Probably not, but if Williams is on the trade block, this is something to consider.
