Broncos expected to make a run for Antonio Brown

New, comments

The Denver Broncos are apparently one team named that will be pursuing a trade for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.

The Denver Broncos are reportedly going to pursue a trade for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown as noted by Ian Rapoport on NFL Game Day on Saturday. The asking price looks like a second-round pick.

“I am told to keep an eye on the Denver Broncos,” Rapoport said. “They may be one of the teams plotting a run at Antonio Brown.”

He went on to note that despite being one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, Brown won’t command a first-round pick asking price. However, the Steelers might get a second-round pick or even a second and third-round pick for him.

Despite the late season implosion by Brown, he still found a way to snag 104 receptions for 1,297 yards and a whooping NFL-best 15 touchdowns in 2018. He has over 1,200 yards receiving in six-straight seasons with Pittsburgh.

Emmanuel Sanders commented on Brown’s falling out with the Steelers soon after saying he’d welcome him in Denver with open arms.

The two pairing in Denver with Courtland Sutton would be interesting in 2019, but could the trade also signal an end of Emmanuel’s tenure in Denver?

Sanders is working on rehab on an Achille’s injury that he may not even be ready to come back from by Week 1 of the regular season. He could end up being a cap casualty as the Broncos look to move through free agency and trades.
