3 Teams Who Should Still Trade For Broncos’ Jerry Jeudy

Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy has been involved in a ton of trade rumors over the last few months. His name was a popular trade target ahead of the deadline in November and once again once the offseason began.

It is easy to see what the appeal would be in acquiring Jerry Jeudy. He is coming off the best season of his career in 2022, catching 67 passes for 972 yards and six touchdowns. When taking into account how anemic the Broncos’ offense was last season, those numbers become that much more impressive.

Staying on the field has been an issue at times for the No. 15 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, as he has missed nine games the last two seasons. But, there is no denying the talent that he possesses, which is why the asking price for him has been so high.

While the Broncos seem content with not trading him, teams are still going to make offers. Who could still show interest in him? Here are three teams who should still make a trade for Jerry Jeudy.

3. Tennessee Titans

The Titans are seemingly approaching a rebuild quickly. New general manager Ran Carthon is remaking the team in his vision, which has led to numerous veterans being on the move. Kevin Byard, Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill remain on the roster for now but could be on the move eventually as well.

Regardless of what direction the team goes in, they are desperate for more playmakers on offense. They have the worst wide receiver situation in the NFL, headlined by 2022 first-round pick Treylon Burks.

Trading away draft capital is rare for a rebuilding team, but if the Titans want to give Will Levis any chance of succeeding early on, acquiring someone of Jerry Jeudy’s caliber would go a long way. He and Burks could make a long-term pairing at wide receiver, giving Levis two high-upside options to grow alongside.

2. Atlanta Falcons

For three consecutive years, the Falcons have selected an offensive skill position player with their first-round pick. Kyle Pitts in 2021, Drake London in 2022 and Bijan Robinson this year are the foundation of Arthur Smith’s offense moving into the future.

While Smith is determined to win by running the football, to succeed in the modern NFL, you need to find success through the air as well. Pitts and London have immense potential, but there isn’t much to get excited about on the roster beyond those two long-term. Mack Hollins was a solid signing in free agency, but the team could use another weapon in the passing game.

Jerry Jeudy would make for a great target and long-term building block on a similar timeline as Pitts, London and Robinson. You can never have too many weapons around a young quarterback and Desmond Ridder would benefit from having a talented player such as Jerry Jeudy in the mix.

1. Detroit Lions

The Lions have a star at the wide receiver position in Amon-Ra St. Brown. They were hoping to pair him with Jameson Williams long-term but Williams has yet to get his career on track. He entered the NFL rehabbing from a knee injury and then got suspended for gambling on sports this offseason.

Detroit isn’t going to give up on the 2022 first-round pick, but it wouldn’t hurt to have contingency plans in place. If they want to find another young wide receiver with upside to pair with St. Brown, Jerry Jeudy makes a lot of sense.

This is an explosive offense but adding a little more behind St. Brown would make sense, especially if their confidence in Williams has wavered at all. Marvin Jones Jr. was signed in free agency to help replace Chark while Kalif Raymond and Josh Reynolds remain on the roster.

While all three of those players are solid veterans, none possess the upside of Jerry Jeudy. He would help elevate this offense to another level and provide Detroit with another long-term building block in case things don’t work out with Williams.
