Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy could be an attractive trade piece in 2022

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is entering a crucial year three with the team, but could he be a potential trade piece instead?

I love Jerry Jeudy.  He’s one of the best route runners in the NFL and should have an insanely strong 2022 season catching passes from Russell Wilson.  However, could the Denver Broncos leverage Jeudy in a potential trade during the season?

I’ve got no basis for this other than the recent news of Roquan Smith who is set to hold out of Bears’ training camp because of his contract situation.

There are trades all the time in the NFL, and there aren’t but a handful of truly untradeable players in the entire league.

As much as Jeudy could mean to this offense, could the Denver Broncos send him to a different team for the right price?

Well, they did extend both Tim Patrick and Courtland Sutton, so they’ve got two very good receivers locked up.

KJ Hamler looks poised to return from his ACL injury by week one, and the team also has guys like Travis Fulgham and rookie Montrell Washington who could make an impact.

Kendall Hinton seems to be sticking around, and receivers coach Zach Azzanni has done a marvelous job, so he could always develop another young player.

The Denver Broncos do not have a major hole on their roster, but in fact, might have a surplus of players at a couple of positions.

The interior offensive line is a unit that might need to shed a player or two, and the receiver group, while in a great position, could afford to lose a body if the right deal is offered.

Jerry Jeudy is still a former first-round pick with Pro Bowl-level talent.  I think he could easily be the unquestioned WR1 on several teams right now, and there could be some takers for his services.

The Denver Broncos need to replenish their draft pick cupboard for the 2023 season, and Jeudy might be a candidate to help do that.

Could the Denver Broncos ship Jerry Jeudy to the Chicago Bears, who desperately need wide receiver help?  What about Houston?

If the Texans want to give Davis Mills a fair shot, acquiring Jeudy to pair with Brandin Cooks could be a nice idea.

John Metchie, who was recently diagnosed with leukemia, should, God willing, make a full recovery, which would then give the Texans a talented trio of wide receivers for 2023.

I’m just saying.  George Paton has proven time and time again that he isn’t afraid to make a deal, trade, or signing if he thinks it will benefit the Denver Broncos.
