Sean Payton and George Paton spoke at the NFL Owners Meetings on Monday. When talking about Javonte Williams’ status for Week 1, Paton was hesitant to say if the Denver Broncos’ starting running back will be ready to return from his injury. If Williams isn’t able to play, will Samaje Perine be able to handle the running back workload? Or will the Broncos have to re-sign Latavius Murray? Or potentially draft a running back. Would a later-round back, such as Deuce Vaughn, be a good addition? Or would a first-round investment in Bijan Robinson or Jahmyr Gibbs be needed? Could the Broncos trade either Jerry Jeudy or Courtland Sutton to get the draft capital to snag one of those running backs?
Denver Broncos’ head coach Sean Payton spoke for the first time since the start of free agency. At the NFL Owners Meetings on Monday morning, Payton discussed the team’s signings of Mike McGlinchey, Ben Powers, Zach Allen, Samaje Perine, Jarrett Stidham and Alex Singleton. Payton was also asked about the trade rumors surrounding Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton and the state of the team moving forward.
On Sunday, Sean Payton told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero that neither Jerry Jeudy nor Courtland Sutton will be traded.
On Monday, Payton doubled down on that stance.
Denver Broncos receiver K.J. Hamler suffered a torn pec this offseason that required surgery. The Broncos' former second-round pick will be out for four-to-six months, putting his availability for the start of the season in question. How does Hamler's injury impact Sean Payton and George Paton potentially trading Courtland Sutton or Jerry Jeudy? Is it less likely that either of those players will be traded? Do the Broncos need to now find a speed receiver in place of Hamler?
In the first day of free agency, the Broncos spent nearly $175 million in contracts along with handing out $95 million in guarantees.
While the big-time spending is likely over, the Broncos still need to round out the rest of there roster.
Here are Denver’s latest moves.
Since Sean Payton came to town, there has been a lot of talk about the future of the Denver Broncos’ wide receiver room. There have been rumors reports indicating the Broncos are open to trading Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton and/or K.J. Hamler for the right price. The Broncos were also close to signing Allen Lazard before he signed with the New York Jets. On Monday, Adam Thielen revealed he had conversations with the Broncos about potentially joining them before he signed with the Carolina Panthers. With all of this talk, could Odell Beckham Jr. be in the mix for the Broncos to sign? Additionally, is newly signed punter Riley Dixon a lock to win the starting job over Corliss Waitman? It might not be as much of a lock as you may think.
The Denver Broncos have spent hundreds of millions of dollars in NFL free agency this week signing Mike McGlinchey, Ben Powers, Zach Allen, Jarrett Stidham, Alex Singleton and Samaje Perine. How much cap space does George Paton have left this year? What about for the 2024 season? Who is left in free agency that Sean Payton could want to sign this year? Are Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy no longer going to be traded? Or was Mike Klis' report simply to drive the price up of those two receivers?
NFL reports continue to come out that the Denver Broncos are open to trading Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler. Will Sean Payton trade one of them? What would the right price be for George Paton to move one of them? Would it be a mistake to trade Sutton, Jeudy or Hamler? Is Sutton on the verge of being traded after his cryptic tweet? What could the Broncos get in return for any of the receivers? Also, the guys continue to break down the Broncos free agents moves, including signing Mike McGlinchey, Ben Powers, Jarrett Stidham, Alex Singleton, Chris Manhertz and Samaje Perine.
