If the Denver Broncos are sellers at the trade deadline, these players will draw interest.

Denver Broncos GM John Elway has a tough job.

The Broncos have been trying to find their way for five years now since Peyton Manning left and the vaunted Super Bowl 50 defense was slowly dismantled. There have been failed quarterback experiments, failed free agent acquisitions, but plenty of really good moves as well.

What will be next for the Broncos as we approach the 2020 trade deadline?

With a 2-4 record and coming off of one of the most embarrassing losses in the last five years to the Kansas City Chiefs, it’s truly hard to know whether the Broncos will be sellers or whether they will add pieces, or even just stick with what they’ve got.

The easy answer is that they’ll just stick with what they’ve got because of the number of players that have hit IR this season, the fact that the team still wants to win football games and put the best players out there, and really because trading good players is a message to your locker room that winning now is not necessarily the priority.

Still, if the Broncos lose to the Chargers and their record is 2-5, being sellers at the trade deadline is certainly not out of the realm of possibility.

Although my current belief is that the Denver Broncos are much more likely to stay put where they are with the roster or make some really minor moves, here are a few players who would draw interest around the league if John Elway opens up the phone lines.
