Keeping with the Christmas spirit, I decided to compile a wish list for the Denver Broncos going into the 2022 offseason.

The Denver Broncos are set to have a busy 2022 offseason.  Between the many free agents, $50 million in cap space, and draft picks, General Manager George Paton should have a lot of fun.

Obviously, he won’t re-sign every free agent, trade for every player that you or I want, or draft a Pro Bowler with every pick, but that will not stop us from engaging in offseason debate in a few short weeks unless the Denver Broncos can squeeze into the NFL playoffs.

I personally think this team is genuinely a quarterback away from being elite, but simply trading for one might not fix every issue.  George Paton will have to be smart with how he approaches free agency and will have to hopefully have another strong NFL Draft.

Below is my personal wish list for the Denver Broncos as they head into the 2022 offseason.

Christmas Wish List for the Denver Broncos

1. Trade for Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, or Kirk Cousins

My top wish for the Broncos is for the team to trade for one of these three listed quarterbacks.  My first preference would be Russell Wilson, but Aaron Rodgers is hardly a consolation prize, and Kirk Cousins is really good.

If the Broncos ended up with one of these three men, I would be absolutely thrilled.  All three are skilled and accurate passers who will elevate this offense and excel with the Broncos’ embarrassment of riches on the offensive side.

Some may disagree on Cousins, but I’ve remained very high on the player since before he signed with the Vikings.  He has put up some excellent numbers working behind a poor Vikings offensive line.

Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers don’t need introductions.  They’ll both end up in the Hall of Fame one day, so there’s no reason why the Broncos should not try to trade for either one.
