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?
Sean Payton didn’t waste a second making big-time moves his first offseason with the Broncos.
Within the first 12 hours of free agency, the Broncos spent $150 million.
How did Denver do in the first wave of free agency?
Thanks to deep pockets from the Walton-Penner ownership group, the Denver Broncos, led by Sean Payton and George Paton, have been one of the most active teams in NFL free agency. After signing many big-time free agents, what grades would you give the team for landing Mike McGlinchey, Ben Powers, Zach Allen and Samaje Perine? What about for re-signing Alex Singleton?
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. What does Perine’s signing indicate about Javonte Williams’ health?
