Denver Broncos: 3 trade ideas that would send Kyle Fuller elsewhere
Trade with Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in obvious need of defensive backs after watching Sean Murphy-Bunting and Carlton Davis go on injured reserve. Jamel Dean has also been hobbled and this forced the Bucs to go out and sign Richard Sherman.
Adding a player such as Fuller makes plenty of sense as the Bucs will be willing to do what it takes to get back to another Super Bowl. As a result, the Broncos talk them out of a future draft pick and a promising young wide receiver.
Tyler Johnson had a lot of intrigue surrounding him when he came out of Minnesota in 2020. He ranks first in school history in career receiving yardage and touchdown catches and he is second all-time in receptions.
But his career has gotten off to a slow start in Tampa Bay.
Tom Brady has a lot of mouths to feed with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski. As a result, the Bucs could see it as worth it to move on from Johnson in order to get a veteran cornerback in the fold for the Super Bowl run.
The Broncos could then add Johnson to the receiving mix and turn him into a legitimate No. 3 option behind Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy.
If the Broncos could make something like this work, particularly if Fuller is still struggling, it would be a good move for both sides.
