As trade deadline approaches, Derek Wolfe says there is ‘no loyalty in this league’

New, comments

The Broncos are sellers in the NFL Trade Market with a record of 2-5. In this week’s episode, Luke reviews which moves the Broncos need to make by the trade deadline.

Following an embarrassing (30-6) loss to the Chiefs on Thursday Night Football, the Broncos have hit rock bottom.

Holding penalties, bad habits, and lack of passion continues to leave Broncos Country with an exhausted sense of dread.

Even after Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a game-ending dislocated knee cap in the first quarter, the Broncos were outscored 30-0. They gave up a total of nine sacks (1 on special teams), and were just 1 of 13 on third down.

Because of growing turmoil and a 2-5 record, the Broncos are rumored to be sellers in the trade market whose deadline is 2 p.m. MT Oct. 29.

Speculated players that could be traded include former Super Bowl 50 champions Emmanuel Sanders, Derek Wolfe, Chris Harris Jr. and Von Miller.

Last Sunday, NFL Insider Adam Schefter revealed the Broncos are currently listening to offers for veteran wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. Interested teams could feature the Patriots, Panthers, Eagles and 49ers.

The Broncos are rumored to be seeking a second- or third-round pick for Sanders.

Yesterday, Denver 7’s Troy Renck, asked Derek Wolfe how he deals with trade rumors this time of year.

“It’s a business man. That’s the nature of this business. You’re here one day, and gone tomorrow. That’s the way it goes. There is no loyalty in this league anymore, its gone. I think you have players that show loyalty, but you don’t have teams that show loyalty anymore.”

Wolfe added that he believes the Broncos are “one of those teams that does show a lot of loyalty” around the league.

“But at the end of the day, they have to make a business decision on what’s right for their business,” Wolfe said. “If trading somebody is best for their business, then that’s what they have to do. You can’t expect them to make bad business decisions based on emotions.”

Selected in the second-round of the 2012 draft, Wolfe has represented consistency, toughness, and production. In his eighth season, Wolfe has recorded 14 tackles, five assists, and two sacks.

As the Broncos head to Indianapolis to play the Colts in Week 8, Broncos Country is left wondering if some of their favorite players have played their last game in Denver.
