Trade Candidates:

Mekhi Becton: Becton is still a young player, who has struggled and has been injured during his time with the New York Jets, but giving him a fresh start in a new system could be a career-savior move for the former first-round draft pick. But will the Jets deal with the Broncos given the drama between the two teams?

Jonah Williams: Another former first-round draft pick with a lot of injuries over his career. In 2022, he played over 1,000 snaps (10th most among OTs). With the free agent signing of Orlando Brown Jr., a fresh start in a new team like the Broncos could be a good move for the Bengals' OT.

James Hurst: New Orleans' 2022 first-round pick Trevor Penning is in a huge bounce-back position, Hurst will no longer be a starter if Penning can stay healthy. Ryan Ramczyk is the other starter, so moving on from Hurst would make sense. Hurst had only 5 penalties last season.

Denver could trade for one of these, or sign one of the FA's and save money for a 2024 free agent. Let's take a look at the 2024 Free Agent tackles...

  • Tyron Smith

  • Trent Brown

  • Terence Steele
