Denver Broncos: 5 moves in 2021 the team may live to regret
The Denver Broncos have had a pretty strong offseason under new general manager George Paton. There are moves they may live to regret, however.
The 2021 regular season is nearly upon us, which means there’s not much more time to speak in hypotheticals. Games are about to begin, and the Denver Broncos will put one of the most talented rosters they have had in the last decade out onto the field.
As talented as the roster is from top to bottom, there are moves the team made over the course of the last six or seven months that are not beyond questioning by the fans.
New general manager George Paton brought some fresh eyes to a roster that had been built, deconstructed, and then rebuilt by John Elway, who stepped down from his role as GM that he held for nearly a decade.
Paton came over from the Minnesota Vikings where they had not won a Super Bowl (ever, but also in his many years there) but certainly have built a number of impressive rosters that have been in contention in the NFC.

As a first-year general manager, Paton was not exactly afforded the same patience as he may have been from other fan bases because he inherited a team that has tried and failed a number of ways to find a long-term solution at the quarterback position since winning the Super Bowl in February 2016.
Although Paton made excellent moves overall and was aggressive as he promised when he was first hired, are there some moves this team may live to regret?
Let’s look at some possibilities…
