Denver Broncos

Okay, the Denver Broncos are coming off a 2023 season with a record of 8-9. But this is a team that released veteran QB Russell Wilson and will start from the options of QB Jarrett Stidham, rookie QB Bo Nix, and QB Zach Wilson. WR Courtland Sutton is a 6-foot-4 216-pound receiver who is both talented and experienced.

Why would Broncos do this?

The Broncos may see 2024 as a rebuilding year, and if that is the case, the addition of two Day 2 picks would certainly aid the team in building around rookie QB Bo Nix. While Tutu Atwell is a completely different type of receiver than Sutton, does he offer upside with a change of scenery?

Why wouldn't Broncos do this?

The Broncos would be hard-pressed to abandon the 2024 NFL season after finishing with an 8-9 record. In some ways, they may have an optimistic outlook with the team taking on more of a HC Sean Payton feel on the roster. And can the Broncos truly trade away a receiver who scored 10 TDs in 2023?

Pittsburgh Steelers

With the addition of QB Russell Wilson, the Steelers are hopeful to improve his comfort level by adding a familiar offensive weapon. If they can get Wilson back to his Seahawks level of production, they have a shot to do very well this season.

Why would the Steelers do this?

The reunion of QB Russell Wilson with WR Courtland Sutton is certainly a cleverly disguised hook to make this a bit believable. After all, we know that the Steelers would be delighted to improve the comfort and production of their new veteran quarterback.

Why wouldn't the Steelers do this?

The Steelers may want to bolster their offense, but they are not exactly in the business of trading away veteran players who have played exclusively for the team. And Sutton may have scored in bunches in 2023, but was that a one-hit wonder?
