The Denver Broncos might become trade deadline sellers after four straight losses. What big-name players could be on the move if that’s the case?

If the Denver Broncos are not going to be in the postseason in 2021, then everything that can go must go.

The Broncos have a number of big-time players on their roster right now that, if made available, could help a number of teams around the league and could also help the Denver Broncos add to their hoard of 2022 NFL Draft selections or future assets in general.

Nobody wanted to talk about the Broncos being trade deadline sellers when the team was sitting a 3-0 just a few short weeks ago, but here we are.

Four straight losses, uninspired play, and little hope at postseason contention with the way things have been going have all led us to this point. The Denver Broncos and general manager George Paton need to consider wholesale changes during the season, and that extends beyond just possibly replacing some coaches.

Trades can be made with a variety of motivations. Perhaps the Broncos want to get a clearer look at some young players to evaluate them with a larger sample size before next season. Perhaps they want to “do right” by a veteran player and get him in a spot to contribute on a winning team.

Whatever the motivations, the Broncos have plenty of reasons to trade a number of big-name players on the roster and especially if the team loses to Washington next week, we should see some guys on the move.

Who could be on the move?

Let’s take a look at seven players that could be trade deadline candidates if the Broncos are sellers.
