    Who Could Be On The Move

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...deadline-nears

    Here's the latest from Ian Rap.

    The NFL's trade deadline is just two days away, with 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday looming. The trade winds have already been swirling, with Jalen Ramsey, Emmanuel Sanders and Mohamed Sanu changing teams over the last few weeks. If history is any indicator, there will be some fireworks in the coming days as well. After dozens of conversations with sources over the past few days, here is a snapshot look at what may be coming:

    » The Jets are open to dealing defensive end Leonard Williams, wide receiver Robby Anderson, and would like to trade cornerback Trumaine Johnson -- who isn't expected to have a market because of his salary and play. If Williams leaves in free agency, he'd likely command a third-round compensatory pick, so that figures to be the floor of what the Jets would ask in return. Anderson is another one who could leave in free agency, and the team is open to a trade. The Raiders would be one team to watch, but the Jets will aim high as they aren't rushing to trade away a weapon for young quarterback Sam Darnold.
    » The Broncos already made one move, dealing Sanders to the 49ers to give Kyle Shanahan a weapon for a year while his young WRs grow. Veteran cornerback Chris Harris seems to be the most likely to go, though Denver is more listening to offers rather than shopping as they did with Sanders. One caveat is, he may re-sign in the offseason, and trading him now would almost certainly cancel that.
    » The Bengals have told anyone who would listen they don't plan on doing any deals. As Duke Tobin will offer teams, they aren't in the business of sending away good players. The only one it seems who has a chance at being traded is tight end Tyler Eifert, for whom Cincy would ask for a third-rounder. That seems quite rich, though perhaps there is some wiggle room there.
    » With a few teams in need of help at running back, and with some early struggles after his holdout, expect some teams to call the Chargers about potentially dealing for running back Melvin Gordon. The price has been high, and L.A. will hold out for one, but this topic will be revisited.
    » The Seahawks have received calls from RB-needy teams and a potential deal for former first-round running back Rashaad Penny is possible, per colleague Mike Garafolo. With Chris Carson not relinquishing the top job, Penny may have the most value as a trade name. But obviously, they won't give Penny away for...a penny on the dollar.
    » The Falcons aren't shopping or likely to trade tight end Austin Hooper, though teams would surely be interested. They are looking to shop linebacker Vic Beasley, the former first-rounder who is making $12.8 million this year. To get a taker, they may have to eat salary. The Ravens have looked for edge help, but it's not clear if that's a match.
    » Veteran defensive backs with big contracts such as T.J. Carrie of the Browns, Reshad Jones of the Dolphins, Josh Norman of the Redskins and Janoris Jenkins of the Giants are among those being shopped. If they are dealt, it's unlikely it will be for much given the age and contract.
    » The Lions have made calls to upgrade their roster, with a specific focus on the running back position. Not a surprise given the injury to Kerryon Johnson and general manager Bob Quinn's propensity to make a deal.
    » The Dolphins are open to trading running back Kenyan Drake, and Drake would be more than open to it, as well. The hope would be to get what they received in the Jay Ajayi trade -- a fourth rounder.
    » The Browns haven't been shy about their desire for an offensive tackle, though they've been shut down every time they've asked about Redskins left tackle Trent Williams. One potential name to watch is Eagles reserve tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai, or Big V. Several teams have been keeping an eye on him, so Philly may have a real market. But they could also re-sign him in the offseason or simply keep him for depth, so that factors into the price.
    » Speaking of the Browns, they could also deal some WR depth, but they'd only trade the back-end guys.
    » The Raiders and Chiefs are teams with plenty of running back depth, and teams looking to add depth have inquired. For K.C., that could mean former starter Damien Williams, who is having a down year. For Oakland, it could mean DeAndre Washington or Jalen Richard.
    » The subject of trade rumors, the Cardinals have said they aren't trading Patrick Peterson, though no one has called because they know GM Steve Keim won't trade him. Similar situation for the Jaguars' Yannick Ngakoue -- who is not on the trade block but no one has called about him because they know he isn't going anywhere.

    Interesting list of potential trades opportunities. Chris HJ is not a surprise. Nothing concrete. If he wants to be here, keep him (unless there's a great offer out there), but if he wants out.....move him, for the sake of the team.

    I highlight Robbie Anderson. I like this young speedster. He can spread a D with his long ball capability. I could see him as a nice add on when Lock, Lindsay, Sutton, Freeman, Risner and other young (potential long term quality) players become the essence of the O.

    Although not 100% about The Broncos, some interesting possibilities in this article. I think our rival Chargers would be wise to trade Gordon for a good package, given Ekeler is a stud on his own. Gordon may be lacking something this season, but it's hard to tell. But if The Chargers got some great player/draft capital in return, given their situation, I'd go for it.

    Any comments gang?

    I dont think CHJ is going anywhere. I don't think there will be any more moves IMO. Then again a blowout today changes things.

    This is my opinion and no offense toward anyone but if the Broncos go into Indianapolis today and lose this game, then 24 hours later the trade deadline comes and goes and Chris Harris Jr is still on this team, then there will be egg on the face of John Elway and the ineptitude that is steering this ship.

    CHJ isn’t going to re sign with the Broncos after the season because Elway will not pay his asking price. I would say dont worry about the comp picks for 2021, get the picks now in trade for a player that won’t be here either way and right this thing now.

    John knows he can’t ask for too much so just take a fourth, fifth or even a sixth what ever is offered because at this point the comp pick in 2021 will come anyway.

    I don't agree with that, I'm in the camp that CHJ might very well resign. At worst you're looking at a 4th round comp, and potentially a 3rd rounder. I'm keeping CHJ IMO.

    I don’t think it’s so much CHJ, I think it is that Elway won’t pay his asking price.

    I don’t see CHJ taking a home town discount, this is most likely his last contract while still good enough to command top dollar for a CB and he should get it because he definitely deserves.

    Based on today's outcome, I think that it would be wise to really exercise our negotiating muscle, because I think it more valuable to add value now, then to watch the opportunity slide away. That is, as long as deals are there to be made.

    I may be a bit of a downer these days, but it's all for a greater good....a better long term team.

    I hope a team offers prime picks for Von Miller.

    '17: 5-11,
    '18: 6-10, and now
    '19: 2-6,

    Clearly, something is wrong with Von Miller.
    His trade value may never be as high as it is now.

    A first and a third would do for me.

    Chubb / Reed next year.

    I agree. This is a business - and the Broncos need to use these aging stars and get reimbursed for some sort of future.

    I don't think we would get anywhere close to that value for Miller based on his contract/age.

    More likely someone would offer a 2nd, which I doubt we would take.

    As far as Harris I would hope that we can figure out a way to keep him the next couple seasons. If not we get a comp pick anyway so I don't think we'll deal him right now because of that. If a team offered a 2nd, maybe but I doubt it again because of his age and contract.

    CHJ wants to get paid and he thinks he will elsewhere. Clearly he's is done here in his mind and on top of that nobody will ocnvince me Elway will pay that guy 12M+ a year on a 3yrs+ contrat.... Either trade him now and get a 3rd or try the comp pick play and hop we dont make a spalsh in free angency.

    As for Von I woul keep the guys he is still a good playeed, a leadr. Now all he need a in DL that can actually open up lanes or double teams for him to get loose.

    I have read multiple reports that the Broncos will try to keep CHJr and do not want to trade him.

    With that said...99.99% of the players in the NFL are available if a team is willing to do a dumb trade.

    Maybe young franchise Qbs the only truly untradeable players due to how hard it is to find one.
    All I want for Christmas is a Bronco QB controversy

    I read on ESPN that the Bronco's asking price for Harris was to high.

    Clearly a "low move" year. Still wish we'd have made a deal, to fatten the draft capital wallet.
