Denver Broncos: 5 trades that could happen before 2021 season
The Denver Broncos could be active on the trade market prior to the 2021 season. Here are a few moves that may happen in the coming weeks.
As the 2021 regular season approaches, roster cuts need to be made, and while teams certainly do “cut” the majority of players to get down to the maximum 53 active roster players, there are a variety of other ways you can get there. Trades are not as common in the NFL as they are in the MLB or NBA, but they are more common at this time of year because teams are looking to maximize the value of players on their roster as well as potentially take shots on players that other teams are going to give up on.
The Denver Broncos could be involved a decent amount in the trade market leading up to 2021 roster cuts. It’s impossible to know what the team is thinking internally, but there are dots to be connected on the roster with players who might have value elsewhere in the league as well as players around the NFL the Broncos may have an interest in bringing in.
First-year general manager George Paton has done a great job of assembling this current roster to the point that the Broncos are starting to gain some decent national respect for the talent and depth they have on both sides of the ball, even if there is a healthy skepticism about the quarterback position.
What areas of the team might the Denver Broncos consider upgrading on the trade market? What players could they trade based on training camp breakouts?
Let’s take a look through some trade ideas that — you never know — could happen before the 2021 regular season.
