Are the Denver Broncos getting closer to acquiring a quarterback?
Ever since the NFL combine started, it seems like more and more smoke relating to the Denver Broncos acquiring a quarterback is in the air.
Ever since the NFL combine began on March 1st, it seems like the Denver Broncos have raced to the front of the line in the veteran quarterback sweepstakes.
The Aaron Rodgers saga seemingly took an interesting turn, with the quarterback now apparently “truly torn” on where he wants to play in 2022.
Towards the beginning of the offseason, Rodgers to Denver seemed all but guaranteed. Then, up until several days ago, it seems mostly unlikely.
Now, reports coming from and out of the combine not only are placing Aaron Rodgers and Denver together but also placing the Denver Broncos at the top of the list for potential veteran quarterbacks in a trade.
I think this is an amazing development because the 2022 league year begins in just a couple short weeks, so it makes sense that we’re getting reports during this combine timeline.
With Aaron Rodgers truly torn on where he wants to play, this news has to benefit the Denver Broncos, right?
Well, many of us writers here at Predominantly Orange seem to think that the longer this saga goes on, the more it benefits Denver.
If Rodgers wanted to truly return to Green Bay, he should have done it already, because the franchise tag deadline is on Tuesday, and the Packers may need to use that.
What has gotten in the way of Aaron Rodgers taking so long to make up his mind? It’s the Denver Broncos, and it’s always been the Denver Broncos.
Denver has always been the team that has Rodgers’ eye if he wanted to leave Green Bay.
On a general quarterback note, the Denver Broncos are also being viewed as a premier destination for other veteran quarterbacks as well.
Russell Wilson and Jimmy Garoppolo are the next ones that could be on the move, and it seems as if both would be interested in playing for Denver.
Kirk Cousins is probably staying in Minnesota, but if they can’t come to an agreement on a deal, perhaps both sides believe that going in different directions is the way to go.
With the new league year right around the corner, the Denver Broncos all of a sudden seem to have a ton of momentum in their favor.
We all could be wrong, and no significant quarterback ends up in Denver, but everything being spouted from the combine seems to indicate that a quarterback of note could be very much in play for the Denver Broncos.
