NFL Trade Predictions: Jets send QB Sam Darnold to the Broncos

Sam Darnold Colts trade rumors
Jets QB Sam Darnold needs a change of scenery and we think we have found the perfect fit for him. The former USC gunslinger lands on the Broncos.

The Denver Broncos are looking for a new quarterback, and let’s face it Drew Lock is not the answer. The Jets on the other hand have the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft, and can acquire a top quarterback with no problem. The Jets though need some help on defense and that is where they look.

The Jets ship Sam Darnold to the Broncos in exchange for veteran pass rusher Von Miller and their third rounder. The Broncos basically make the move to free up some cap space, and a headache. The Jets brass is confident Von Miller’s legal troubles are behind him.

This move makes sense because the Jets have cap space, and they keep their draft picks. They then can draft Justin Fields with the 2nd overall pick and start fresh. The move also allows the former first round pick Von Miller to get into a new system and shine.

The Broncos on the other hand keep their first round pick and add a young quarterback to their QB’s room. You keep Drew Lock and allow the two of them to compete. This move allows you to get out of the Von Miller situation and add a potential star for basically nothing.

We will see how it plays out but at this point, this move makes the most sense for both teams.
