Denver Broncos: Tim Patrick / DaeSean Hamilton, WR

The Broncos could be one team looking to get some value in return for a starting-caliber wide receiver ahead of the 2020 season.

The Broncos have a couple of players in Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton who could start for a number of teams and also have some connections elsewhere around the league.

Patrick has proven himself a capable outside receiver as well as special teams player and Hamilton has upside in the slot. These players may not bring huge value in return for Denver, but with Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Tyrie Cleveland coming in through the 2020 NFL Draft, the Broncos could look to get some value for one of these players instead of having to cut somebody.

Kansas City Chiefs: Dorian O’Daniel, LB

The Chiefs used a third-round pick on Dorian O’Daniel in the 2018 NFL Draft, and it hasn’t quite panned out the way either party thought it would to this point.

Kansas City has Anthony Hitchens at one of the inside linebacker spots and second-round pick Willie Gay Jr. coming in as the potential heir to the other primary linebacker position.

O’Daniel can play special teams and provide depth for Kansas City, but another team that liked him in the 2018 NFL draft could come calling and try to develop him over the next two seasons.

Los Angeles Chargers: Desmond King, CB

The Chargers have an absolutely loaded defense, and after bringing in Chris Harris Jr. from the Broncos this offseason, there have been a number of rumors swirling that the team could try to trade Desmond King.

King is the top depth the Chargers have at corner right now and he could still move to the outside with Harris playing inside in nickel situations. It may not be the wisest move to trade King but there has been more smoke around him being traded this offseason than perhaps any other Chargers player.

Las Vegas Raiders: Gabe Jackson, OG

There were some who didn’t think Jackson was going to be a Raider by the time the 2020 NFL Draft concluded, but here we are in August and the Raiders apparently haven’t seen an offer they really like.

Jackson is a starter for the Raiders at guard but they drafted his heir apparent in John Simpson out of Clemson this year.

Jackson is due $9.6 in guarantees this season and because it’s not guaranteed, the Raiders could look to deal him again if some team loses a player to opt-out or injury in the near future.
