4. Von Miller, EDGE: Los Angeles Rams ➡️ Denver Broncos
Could Denver Broncos general manager really pull this off?
He trades Von Miller at the deadline for a 2nd and 3rd-round pick, then re-signs him in free agency?
It would be an all-timer, there’s no doubt about it.
Von Miller has recently taken to social media to speculate about what he might do in free agency and he put a lot out there for Denver Broncos fans just one week before free agency, talking about whether he would wear number 58 or number 40, whether or not the team would give him his locker back, and how he’s missing the feeling in the 5280 (Mile High).
Miller always wanted to be part of the solution in Denver and with a new coaching staff (that includes a bunch of Rams assistants now on defense), renewed hope, and potentially a big-name QB, we could see the Denver Broncos re-sign their future Hall of Famer.
3. Chris Godwin, WR: Tampa Bay Buccaneers ➡️ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I wrestled with this one for a good bit.
If Tom Brady decides to come back, would Godwin do the same? Will the Buccaneers just tag him?
I don’t know that Godwin is going to base his free agency on Tom Brady at this point. This guy is coming off of a torn ACL and will still have a chance to go get a ton of money in free agency if the Bucs let him get there. I think the Eagles would want him. The Dolphins. The Colts.
Name any team that needs a receiver at all.
The Buccaneers are rumored to be leaning towards using the franchise tag on Godwin as of this writing. If that doesn’t happen, we’ll amend this prediction (initially had the Eagles down) but for now, it looks like the Bucs will do whatever they need to do to make sure that Tom Brady would actually want to come back in the event he’s willing to do that.
