Broncos players continue to be mentioned in NFL trade rumors
The NFL trade deadline isn’t for another nine days. Prior to Nov. 1, the Broncos need to decide if they’re going to be buyers or sellers. That could depend on what happens in the next two weeks, as a 4-4 team probably will be adding players, while a 2-6 club might be looking to stockpile draft picks.
According to the rumor mill, however, the Broncos are going to be sellers. First, Albert Okwuegbunam was mentioned as player drawing interest around the league. This morning, three other familiar names were added to the list.
Broncos have received multiple trade inquiries about star DE Bradley Chubb and WRs Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler, sources told ESPN. Other teams believe that the Broncos will not sell low in any deal.

Chubb is in the final year of his contract. The former No. 5 overall pick is having a nice season, as the edge rusher has 5.5 sacks through the first six games. A contender looking to bolster their pass rush might pay a premium for the linebacker.
Jeudy and Hamler were both selected in the 2020 NFL Draft, as the Broncos took the wideouts in the first and second rounds, respectively. Both have been disappointments, in part due to injuries, but each has shown flashes that could be intriguing to other teams.
Will George Paton be a buyer or a seller? The Broncos general manager appears to be floating the idea that he’s interested in being the latter.
