The Denver Broncos have a big offseason ahead of them. Could they try and recoup some draft capital by trading some players? Last offseason, the team traded a good bit of draft capital for Russell Wilson.
Before the trade deadline in 2022, they sent edge rusher Bradley Chubb to the Miami Dolphins for a first round pick in 2023. So, they were able to get a first round this year. However, the team is still a bit light on the draft pick side, and they could also use a bit of cap relief.
They’re projected to have about $13 million in cap space this coming offseason, but if they plan on being aggressive and trying to turn their team around quickly, more space will be needed to sign free agents.
One part of this equation is trying to trade some current players to not only get cap relief, but to also acquire some more capital. So, which players on the Denver Broncos might be traded this offseason?
Players the Denver Broncos can trade for draft picks
Graham Glasgow, OG/C
Graham Glasgow signed a big money contract with the Broncos a few offseasons ago, but has not lived up to that $40 million contract. He suffered a season-ending injury about halfway through the 2021 season. Then rookie Quinn Meinerz took his place at the right guard spot.
In 2022, Glasgow agreed to a restructured contract and started the season as a backup before being inserted into the lineup when center Lloyd Cushenberry went down.
However, Glasgow just has not looked comfortable as a Bronco, and the cap savings if the team trades him are quite large.
A post-June 1st trade could save the Broncos $11 million on their 2023 cap number while only eating $3 million in dead money. A team might be willing to send a late round pick over to acquire Glasgow’s services, as he has one year remaining on his deal.
