Recent reports suggest that Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton, two of the Denver Broncos‘ top wide receivers, are likely to remain with the team, unless a rival team makes an offer that is too good to refuse.
According to veteran sports writer Peter King, it is unlikely that the Broncos will be swayed by any potential trade offers, as the team is currently seeking a high asking price for both players.
The Broncos have reportedly told other NFL teams that they want at least a first-round pick for Jeudy, but many teams view him as too inconsistent, due to his history of injuries and his lack of consistent production. While Sutton’s name has also been mentioned in trade discussions, the Broncos have been unwilling to lower their asking price for him as well.
Reports suggest that Sutton is not viewed as a number one receiver for the price that the Broncos are seeking. However, he has been a productive player for the team, with over 1,000 receiving yards and six touchdowns in 2019, before missing most of the 2020 season due to injury. Sutton bounced back in the 2021 and 2022 seasons, but his production has not yet reached the same level as before his injury.
Jeudy, on the other hand, was a first-round draft pick for the Broncos in 2020 and showed promise in his rookie season, finishing with 856 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He set a career-high in catches, with 67 catches for 972 yards and six touchdowns in 2022.
Despite the Broncos’ apparent desire to keep both players, trade rumors have persisted in recent weeks. However, it seems that any potential deal would need to offer significant value in return for the Broncos to even consider parting ways with either Jeudy or Sutton.
For now, it appears that both players will remain with the Broncos, as the team looks to build a strong roster for the upcoming season. With a new head coach at the helm and a talented young core of players, including Jeudy and Sutton, the Broncos are poised to make a run at the playoffs in the upcoming season under the guidance of Russell Wilson.
