Broncos confirmed to have received a call from this team about Jerry Jeudy trade
The Denver Broncos were expected to be one of the busier teams ahead of last week’s trade deadline, but when all was said and done, the only player that was moved was Bradley Chubb.
The Broncos had several players who made sense to move on from as the team has sputtered to a 3-5 season at the bye week. It turns out that at least one team asked about one other player on the roster.
Third-year wide receiver Jerry Jeudy was one of the most talked about names going into the trade deadline. According to a recent report from Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Dallas Cowboys reached out to the Broncos in an attempt to make a deal.
Broncos general manager George Paton decided to stand pat.
The Cowboys are clearly looking to beef up the wide receiver position, as recent reports have them connected to free agent Odell Beckham.
It’s unclear what the Cowboys were willing to give up in exchange for Jeudy but it seems that Paton values his young receiving corps and wants to continue to build that along with Russell Wilson.
Jeudy has 30 catches for 449 yards and three touchdowns on the season. Though he has left much to be desired since the Broncos selected him with the No. 15 overall pick in 2020, he is still looked at as one of the league’s better young wide receivers.
Jeudy will now have nine more games in 2022 to build up a strong connection with Wilson and have the chance to finish this season the way that many expected it would start.
Wilson has looked Jeudy’s way this season, targeting him 54 times in the passing game. Only Courtland Sutton has been thrown to more.
The Broncos have made a commitment to Jeudy as the team likely would have gotten a decent return in a potential trade. It’s time for him to step up and make that decision look good.
