3 fun and crazy trade ideas for the Denver Broncos in 2023
The Denver Broncos are sure to make some big moves in free agency, but could they also try to make some crazy and perhaps even silly trades? I’d expect the team to make multiple trades in the offseason, but that does not mean the trades have to be them spending draft capital.
The team can surely trade some of their own players if they wanted for draft capital, or even do player-for-player swaps to some extent. Not having draft capital will force them to be active in free agency. They’ll have to free up some cap space and be willing to make some moves that perhaps they wouldn’t otherwise.
So, let’s get down and dirty with three fun and crazy trade ideas for the Denver Broncos in 2023.
Three fun and crazy trade ideas for the Denver Broncos
Broncos receive: WR Mike Evans and LT Donovan Smith
Buccaneers receive: WR Courtland Sutton and LT Garett Bolles
Some indications that I’ve heard and read about give credence to the idea that Garett Bolles is far from a lock to be on the team in 2023. If that’s the case, Denver should shop him, as there is surely going to be a team who’d trade for the LT.
Well, why not the Buccaneers? They are likely headed toward a rebuild since they have quite a bit of free agents and also just endured the retirement of Tom Brady. They don’t really have a clear path forward as they are also about $50 million over the cap.
Both Evans and Smith are veteran players on expiring contracts who may not be re-signed with the team when they themselves are set to hit free agency.
So, for that reason, why not swing a trade for two players of the same position?
The Broncos would get an average left tackle and a stud receiver, for a good left tackle and a good receiver. I think the trade balances itself out, honestly, as silly as it might sound.
