One player Denver Broncos could acquire from each team
AFC South players the Denver Broncos could pursue in 2022
Tennessee Titans—QB Ryan Tannehill
This one might sound Uber crazy but stick with me. This could be possible if the Broncos don’t actually land Aaron Rodgers. If Rodgers does something to stay in Green Bay, I would love for the Broncos to go after Ryan Tannehill. I could see another top-tier quarterback going to the Titans in his replacement.
Tannehill has been pretty awesome for the Titans after the Dolphins experiment did not work out.
He’s not a top-5 quarterback, but I think that he could do very well with the Broncos and their offensive weapons.
The Titans have finished first in the AFC South each of the last two seasons. While the Broncos probably wouldn’t finish first in the AFC West with Tannehill, I think that they could be strong wildcard contenders with him as their quarterback.
Houston Texans—DT Maliek Collins
Maliek Collins has had an up and down career since becoming a third-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2016. Collins did have five sacks as a rookie but has never reached that total again. The closest he’s been was in 2019 when he had four sacks.
He has 48 career quarterback hits, and maybe that’s a key for the Denver Broncos being interested in him in 2022 free agency.
Indianapolis Colts—RB Marlon Mack
Marlon Mack was outshined by the presence of Jonathon Taylor in Indianapolis but certainly has potential. As the lead running back in 2019, Mack passed the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the Colts. The year before, he was close. I think that he’d pair nicely with Javonte Williams if Melvin Gordon hits free agency.
Jacksonville Jaguars — LB Myles Jack
Myles Jack is another name that has been linked to the Denver Broncos. Jack has eclipsed 100 tackles in three of his seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. If the Jacksonville Jaguars want to free up some cap space in 2022, trading him to the Broncos would be an ideal move. He’d make an instant impact.
