The Denver Broncos are likely going to be sellers at the deadline, despite picking up their second win of the season in Week 7, beating the Green Bay Packers. One of the top names available in Denver is actually one of two wideouts that could be moved.

Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy could be on their way out, but in this instance, Sutton makes sense for the Patriots.

Kendrick Bourne is the current outside guy opposite DeVante Parker, and he might even be traded by the deadline. But, if the Patriots wanted to do some shuffling, they could slide Bourne into the slot and go after a guy like Sutton.

Sutton would give Mac Jones the type of target they fantasized about when the Patriots signed Parker to an extension. His big frame and catch radius would allow Jones to throw it up there, not necessarily having to make a perfect pass, and watch his guy do the rest.

If Sutton is too expensive, then maybe Jeudy makes sense. But either way, the Patriots need a boost on offense.
