Broncos should make a bold move for Brandon Cooks

The Denver Broncos are 3-0.
Let me add on to that, although the fact that they are 3-0 is already extremely significant.
The Denver Broncos are 3-0 and they still have eight home games remaining.
Let’s add on to that again.
The Denver Broncos are 3-0, they still have eight home games remaining, and they have a quarterback who is playing the most efficient football in the NFL right now.
The Denver Broncos have beaten three teams that are a combined 0-9, but they have dominated those three games and shockingly, they have still shown room for improvement.
Why would you trade a valuable asset in the NFL Draft for a player like Brandin Cooks?
First and foremost, you’ve got to buy what you’re selling.
Yes, it’s only been three games, but look at the Carolina Panthers. They just made a bold move to go after CJ Henderson, a player I’ve been clamoring for the Broncos to trade for. They spent a 3rd and tight end Dan Arnold to get last year’s 9th overall pick.
The Chiefs just signed Josh Gordon despite being 0-2.
There is no precedent for this Denver Broncos team being a playoff contender, but you can still buy into yourself as one after these first three games.
If the Broncos were 2-1, 1-2, or 0-3? The discussion would be vastly different.
At 3-0, you can justifiably spend the draft capital to acquire a major difference-maker like this.
