While their 2018 season was going south, the Broncos traded wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to the Texans.

Their 2019 season has a familiar sinking feeling with a 2-5 record through seven games and it looks like another trade involving a wide receiver will be coming as well.

Mike Klis of KUSA reports that the Broncos are expected to trade Emmanuel Sanders before the October 29 trade deadline. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported earlier on Sunday that the team was taking calls from other teams on the veteran wideout.

Sanders is in the final year of his contract. He has 30 catches for 367 yards and two touchdowns through the first seven games of the season.

Klis reports that cornerback Chris Harris could also go on the block if the Broncos decide to turn fully toward the 2020 season.

  1. Elway has drafted 64 players. 3 of them have been to the pro bowl. One QB just retired after earning 41 million and losing more games than he won.

    Here’s the Bronco’s QB’s since Elway that I”m not talking about:

    Caleb Hanie
    Zac Dysert
    Ryan Katz
    Bryn Renner
    Trevor Siemian
    Christian Ponder
    Paxton Lynch
    Chad Kelly
    Case Keenum
    Kevin Hogan
    Joe Flacco

  2. Emmanuel Sanders best thing about Denver’s offense – their season last year ended same time his did. It would be interesting to see Lindsay behind an o-line considering how good is he is even without one.

    If everything is lining up – the o-line holds them off, his receivers run perfect routes – Flacco can be decent. Denver does none of those things, and Flacco kind of QB who gets worse in those situations, versus a Russ who can cover those kinds of problems up somewhat.

    For Elway’s notion of a QB to work, he needs other parts of offense working and Elway not making that connection picking personnel. Belichik could not make palatable recipe with these Elway-ingredients. Toss in the ownership mess and this seems unfortunately like franchise-redefinition to cellar for awhile, sort of like what happened to the Slurs. At least they’re not Snyder’ed.

  3. Wow – Broncos fans were celebrating last week’s Titans win like it was the Super Bowl…
