Denver Broncos should be all over this potential major trade
Recently, the asking price for DeAndre Hopkins has been revealed, and the Denver Broncos have the facilities to pull the deal off.
This might be being too greedy, but I do not care.
According to Mike Jurecki, the asking price for the stud wide receiver who has likely played his last down with the Arizona Cardinals is a second-round pick.
Well, Denver does not have a second-round pick in this year's draft or next year's, so many might be wondering how the heck the team could pull off a trade like this. Well, I'd say two things:
Firstly, just because a team hopes to get a second-round pick in a trade, does not mean they will get that return.
Secondly, there is nothing to say that the Denver Broncos could not make an offer involving a player and a lower draft pick. For example, what if the Denver Broncos offered the Cardinals wide receiver Courtland Sutton and a late-round pick for DeAndre Hopkins?
It's unlikely I think, but think of it this way; there is no guarantee that the Cardinals would be able to draft a player of Sutton's caliber with their second-round pick. No matter how high a draft pick is, there is always the concern that they might not pan out.
Well, Sutton is a proven player in the NFL. He's a big-bodied receiver in his mid-20s with a Pro Bowl and a 1,000 yard season to his credit.
Being that the Cardinals are likely rebuilding a bit around Kyler Murray, why not give him a younger option in the passing game? On the business side, the Cardinals would get a cheaper player, so the cap savings would surely help, and being that Sutton is about four years younger than Hopkins, they also get a long-term solution at the WR spot.
I do think George Paton will sniff around this potential deal.
