Denver Broncos free agency predictions: Filling the gaps in 2022
Denver Broncos free agency predictions: EDGE
Von Miller or Chandler Jones?
Chandler Jones or Von Miller?
Or someone else?
George Paton keeps things pretty tight-lipped in regards to his biggest moves, but the rumor mill right now is leaning heavily towards the Denver Broncos signing Chandler Jones from the Arizona Cardinals.
Von Miller took to social media starting the day before the Russell Wilson trade and made known his desire to potentially re-join the Denver Broncos as a free agent.
Those rumors have been shot down a little bit in recent days, but I’m not so sure why.
Miller obviously wants to be back in Denver and he’s going to come in at likely the exact same number — or close — as Chandler Jones.
The two are almost identical in age, Miller being a year older (33 this season compared to Jones’ 32).
Miller is coming off of a dominant postseason and is showing no signs of slowing down. Jones’ pass rush productivity is also still off the charts.
I don’t think the Denver Broncos can go wrong here even if they sign Chandler Jones instead of Von Miller, but the fact that all of the talk has been directed at those two guys makes me wonder if George Paton has something else up his sleeve.
It’s been rumored that Danielle Hunter could be available in a trade in the past, and the Vikings certainly need the salary cap relief there.
Haason Reddick is also a free agent I think is about to get a lot of money from someone and he would be a younger option for the Broncos to consider.
Ultimately, I think George Paton should try to get Von Miller back in the fold but Chandler Jones would be anything but surprising at this point.
Officially, I’m predicting the Broncos to re-sign Von Miller because it just makes too much sense.
Regardless of whether it’s Von Miller, Chandler Jones, or a trade for someone like Danielle Hunter, I think EDGE is going to be where we see the biggest splash from the Broncos now that they no longer have a top 40 selection.
