Trade 2: Denver Broncos
It’s no secret that the Denver Broncos have been starved for a franchise QB since Peyton Manning retired. They were heavily involved last off-season as a potential landing spot for Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson. When those trades fell apart, they made a move for QB Teddy Bridgewater.
However, that acquisition has not panned out. Bridgewater is likely to be onto his fourth team in four years and the Broncos roster is set to win now. The team needs its franchise signal-caller to take the team forward.
They figure to be huge players in the trade market this off-season.
What a potential trade could look like for the Seahawks:
- 2022: 1st, 2nd, and 2nd round selections (picks 11, 42, and 59).
- 2023: 1st, 2nd round selections.
- 2024: 4th round selection.
- QB Drew Lock.
- QB Russell Wilson.
- 2024: 5th round pick.
This trade offers Seattle ammunition during the meat of this draft (the top 50 picks) and a couple of likely late-round selections next year. It also offers potential at the QB, although not a sure-fire starter.
As a Seahawk fan, I would not be thrilled about this trade. It leaves Seattle no better off than it is currently. Bronco fans should be thrilled about this move if it were to come to fruition. However, Russell Wilson has a no-trade clause and pegged this as a preferred destination. He can control where he goes a trade happens.
