The Denver Broncos are sitting at 2-3 and though there is plenty of football to be played, the team needs to begin looking to the 2023 season.
If the Broncos begin to trade some players, it should not be viewed as the team waving a white flag for this season or having a “fire sale” like some have suggested the Carolina Panthers do following the firing of head coach Matt Rhule.
The Broncos do lack draft picks in the 2023 draft and based on the way this season has started, there are a few players on the roster who general manager George Paton could likely flip into some more picks, something he is known to be fond of having a lot of on hand.
The trade deadline sits at 4:00 p.m. ET on November 1. Between now and then, several ideas will be tossed around by the front office and though, for the most part, the NFL trade deadline is fairly quiet, there is always room for moves to be made.
Paton should consider trading each of these players to add some more firepower to his draft board for next spring.
Broncos should consider trading Graham Glasgow, Offensive Lineman
The Broncos offensive line has struggled this season and things really went in the wrong direction following a hamstring injury suffered by Quinn Meinerz in Week 1. Graham Glasgow has had to take over for Meinerz and he hasn’t exactly played well.
But he is a trusted veteran who can play multiple positions. Once the Broncos have Meinerz back to 100 percent, Glasgow could easily be dealt to another team.
The Broncos could call up Netane Muti from the practice squad, a player who should probably be seeing more snaps anyway, and the team could get at least one draft pick (likely a Day 3 choice) back in return.
