There is a chance that multiple quarterbacks could be available for trade this offseason, and it’s time for us to revisit potential trade packages that the Denver Broncos could offer.

While nothing is guaranteed, multiple starting and starting-caliber quarterbacks could be available this offseason for trade.  The Denver Broncos figure to be in on most of these deals.

There is a chance that none of Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan, or Kirk Cousins are available, but there is a chance that all could be available for the right price.

The Denver Broncos have a plethora of draft picks and cap space to pull off any trade they want, and George Paton has said he’ll be in on every deal, so obviously, he’ll be very involved if a quarterback is up for grabs.

This article will serve to refresh Broncos Country on the trade packages that the Broncos might need to offer to land these quarterbacks.  We wrote several of these pieces last offseason, but it’s time we revisit them, with the 2022 season nearing the end.

Denver Broncos Trade Packages for 2022 Quarterbacks

1. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

Let’s start with perhaps the most desired quarterback from this list.  Rodgers needs no introduction, but many are starting to believe that he will remain in Green Bay, after what looks like his second consecutive MVP award.

People site these as reasons for Rodgers possibly staying, but I’m not so sure.

Last year, Rodgers had one of the most efficient quarterback seasons of all time, won MVP, and still appeared very disgruntled at Green Bay.

So, I struggle to see how this year is different unless Green Bay can manage to win the Super Bowl.

I will actively root against the Packers because I think this gives the Broncos the best chance to land him in a trade.

As for a potential trade package, I would venture to guess that the Broncos would have to give up two 1st round picks, two 2nd round picks, a receiver, and perhaps an offensive lineman.

Would Broncos Country be OK with parting ways with the following?

  • 2022 1st round pick
  • 2023 1st round pick
  • 2022 2nd round pick
  • 2023 2nd round pick
  • Jerry Jeudy
  • Dalton Risner

This might be too much, but I think this deal would get it done for the Broncos and the Packers.
