The Denver Broncos have a ton of cap space and can make some moves in free agency. Here are three free agency bold predictions for the team.

As free agency creeps closer, teams like the Denver Broncos who have a plethora of cap space will be adequately equipped to make significant signings and trades.

Denver’s most obvious need is the quarterback position, and with the potential of several franchise-caliber signal callers being available to trade, Denver might be in a perfect position to acquire a solid starter.

Outside of that, Denver has some needs along the defensive line and at EDGE.  With their 11 draft picks, they are set up to reload their defense in the draft if they so choose.

However, I expect the Denver Broncos to make a ton of noise in the free agency period.  They have an elite offensive core and solid defense, so there is no reason to be passive.

Here are some bold predictions for the Denver Broncos during the 2022 NFL free agency period.

Denver Broncos: Three bold predictions for free agency

1. Trade for Jimmy Garoppolo

The Denver Broncos are going to trade for Jimmy Garoppolo because it seems that both Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson are staying put.

Kirk Cousins is also not likely to be traded, so unless Denver wants to test the free agent quarterback market, they will have to make a move like this to get a respectable signal-caller.

Jimmy Garoppolo’s time in San Francisco became numbered once the team drafted Trey Lance in last year’s draft.

Jimmy G. is about as average as it gets but is also wildly inconsistent at times.

However, he wins way more games than he loses and does have a solid track record in the playoffs.

Could Jimmy G be the missing piece for Denver?  Well, teams have proven that they can win with him, and with Denver’s talented roster, perhaps he is the one to push the team over the edge.

Denver has plenty of draft picks to pull this trade off and still would be able to invest more into their team in free agency if this trade were to go down.
