3 blockbuster trades Patriots could consider to weaponize offense

Courtland Sutton

If the Patriots stick with the idea of trading for a receiver, they could easily call the Broncos, who appear to be on a war path to cleaning house with their offense this offseason.

They already released Russell Wilson after his failed two years in Denver, taking on a ridiculous amount of dead cap to do so. And they traded away their former first round receiver Jerry Jeudy to the Browns in free agency, leaving Courtland Sutton wondering if he's next.

In this scenario, he would be the next one out, making his way to New England.

He has briefly been on fans' radar over the last few months when rumors of the Broncos' being open to trading their offense away began to heat up. Although they might be less open to ridding themselves of Sutton after the Jeudy trade, some chatter suggests the team might want to trade up in the draft for a quarterback, which is another way this potential trade with the Patriots could happen.

Sutton would be a solid addition to the Patriot's offense, filling their need for a more outside receiver that they've been unsuccessful in finding over the last few years. He's more of a vertical threat, given his size (6'4"), who has averaged over 700 receiving yards throughout his six-year career.

His 2023 season stood out for how valuable he became as Wilson's favorite red zone target. He scored a career-high ten touchdowns on the year while averaging 13.1 yards per catch.

Adding him to the receiving corps of Kendrick Bourne, DeMario Douglas, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Tyquan Thornton would put the offense in a much better position to be successful than how the roster looks right now.
