Denver Broncos’ wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton have been in trade rumors. Will the team move one of the two before the season begins? This has been an interesting situation to follow.
There was some chatter during the 2022 trade deadline that the Broncos had one or more of their receivers in trade talks. Now, those talks seemed to spark back up. The asking prices for each receiver seem to vary, but Jeudy’s name has been plastered more in trade rumors than Sutton has.
Apparently, the asking price for Jeudy is either a first round pick or a second round pick plus a player. There have been teams inquiring about Jeudy, but it doesn’t appear like any team would be willing to give up that it would cost to get the former Alabama product.
That price does seem high for Jerry Jeudy, who finally showcased the kind of receiver he can be, but I think that’s the point.
I’m not sure that the Denver Broncos necessarily want to trade Jeudy, and for that reason, they are asking for an offer they potentially could not refuse.
We’ve seen two teams apparently in on Jeudy go with other wide receivers. The Dallas Cowboys made a move for speedy WR Brandin Cooks and the Cleveland Browns who also inquired about Jeudy recently made a move for Elijah Moore.
Right now, I’d guess that Jerry Jeudy has his fifth year option exercised by the Denver Broncos and remains in Denver for at least this year.
The Broncos won’t get close to the asking price for Sutton that they’re apparently asking for Jeudy, and with Tim Patrick set to return from a torn ACL, I think it might be more likely that Sutton gets dealt.
We do know that the Broncos were aggressively in on Allen Lazard and did talk to Adam Thielen, so because of that I think the team could easily move Sutton if a team paid the asking price for his services.
We’ll see what happens, but this entire situation is quite interesting.
