Broncos Face Social Media Over Alleged: As the NFL trade deadline looms, teams are strategizing their moves, and one potential seller in focus is the Denver Broncos with a 2-5 record. Reports suggest they’re open to trading assets, notably wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, aiming to secure draft picks for a rebuild.
However, Sports Illustrated reveals the Broncos might be aiming too high for Jeudy. Allegedly, they sought a first-round draft pick before the 2023 NFL Draft concluded in April.
Uncertain if the Broncos still hold this demand, many teams may balk at surrendering a first-rounder for Jeudy. Despite being in the league for four years, he hasn’t achieved a 1000-plus receiving yards season, Pro Bowl, or second-team All-Pro recognition.
While Jeudy had a notable 2022 season with 67 catches, 972 yards, and 6 touchdowns, his performance doesn’t match the demand for a first-round pick. For comparison, rookie Jordan Addison of the Minnesota Vikings has six touchdowns in the first seven weeks of the 2023 season.
Given Jeudy’s current status in the final year of his rookie deal and his inconsistent performance, NFL general managers might hesitate to invest a valuable first-round pick in him.
The Broncos faced social media mockery for their reported asking price, with fans ridiculing the expectation of a first-round pick for Jeudy. The team was further clowned for anticipating a second-round pick for the sixth-year wide receiver Courtland Sutton.
