Sean Payton believes that the Broncos have a real chance to trade up, while the Cardinals are in a favorable position.

The Broncos are considering a bold move to secure a franchise quarterback. Sean Payton, the team’s head coach, has openly discussed the possibility of trading up to the fourth overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft. According to Payton, the team is in discussions with Arizona Cardinals General Manager Monti Ossenfort about moving up from their current position at No. 12.

To make this trade happen, the Broncos would need to give up significant draft capital. Payton speculated that it could be similar to what the 49ers surrendered to move up to the third overall pick in 2021. This would likely involve giving up their current first-round pick, along with picks from future drafts in 2025 and 2026.

Despite these risks, Payton seems willing to pursue this option if it means securing a franchise quarterback for the team. With four potential franchise quarterbacks in the draft, Payton is concerned that all of them may be gone by the time the Broncos select at No. 12. This urgency could be driving the team’s decision to pursue a trade.

In addition to Stidham, who is currently leading for the starting quarterback position, there is also a possibility of adding a veteran QB to the roster before or during training camp next year. As we get closer to April’s NFL Draft, Payton hopes that he can acquire a quarterback who will lead the team for years to come.

It remains uncertain whether or not this ambitious plan will come off as planned for Sean Payton and his front office team members. However one thing is clear: they are determined not take any chance when it comes selecting their next franchise quarterback.

The Broncos have been searching for a long term solution at quarterback since Peyton Manning retired after Super Bowl 50 in February 2016 and have had several QBs over that period such as Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Joe Flacco but none of them were able establish themselves as long term solutions for Denver.

As such, it makes sense for Sean Payton and his front office team members to explore all options available including trading up early in next year’s draft so they can secure a player who can anchor their offense for years
