Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy has had an up and down career with the team. Could he potentially be dealt at the trade deadline?  The Broncos do not look like a team that will be buyers at the trade deadline.  They’re 2-4 through six games and are objectively one of the worst teams in football.

Three straight losses to the Raiders, Colts, and Chargers have put the Broncos in a hole that many teams won’t be able to dig out of.  What some teams do at the trade deadline depends on their season up until that point.  Teams who are in a rebuilding phase might continue to sell off some of their veterans for draft capital.

On the other side of this coin, teams who are in a spot to compete might want to trade for a player or two.  The Denver Broncos don’t have a ton of draft capital because of their trading for Russell Wilson and given their record, it would make sense to sell off a veteran or two and look towards future seasons.

One of those players is Jerry Jeudy.  He hasn’t been too consistent for the Broncos and clearly has a skill set that many teams covet.  Jeudy would give the Broncos a large hole in the receiver room, but would likely yield a decent return.

Which teams could trade for Jerry Jeudy?

Projecting best landing spots for Broncos’ Jerry Jeudy

Green Bay Packers

This might be the most obvious destination for Jerry Jeudy.  The Packers traded Davante Adams to the Raiders this offseason, and his subtraction from the offense is noticeable.  Rodgers hasn’t been nearly as efficient and Jeudy has a similar skillset to Adams.

Jeudy would be the most talented receiver on the roster and would finally show some actual, substantive additions to the Packers’ receiver group, which hasn’t been given the attention Rodgers has wanted for years.

Aaron Rodgers’ frustration over the years with the Packers not adding legitimate receiving talent to the roster is beginning to show without Adams.  Green Bay may only have Rodgers for another year or two, so adding whatever they can to help him would be smart.

Green Bay is 3-3, and the NFC is weaker, so their finishing in a playoff spot isn’t out of question.  Jerry Jeudy may help them get there.
