UNBELIEVABLE: Could the Broncos destroy the 49ers dream deal with a mega trade?

Feb 23, 2024 #49ers, #NFL

There’s been a lot of talk about the Denver Broncos trading their young star quarterback, and although the team has put those rumors to rest, they’re continuing to make the case for good reason. Patrick Surtain II is one of the best.

What if Surtain appears like dozens of people associated with the Broncos, but he actually joins a team that is now competing? That’s what Bleacher Report reported this week, calling the PS2 an offseason dream for the San Francisco 49ers.

Does this seem crazy? Well, that’s what the 49ers have been doing since before last fall’s trade deadline.

The team checked in with the Broncos on the corner before making a move for Chase Young. Now low on cap space and seemingly wanting to add to a defense whose coordinator was just fired despite a Super Bowl appearance, could John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan circle back on Surtain? The deal would be fascinating for the Broncos to make because it would no doubt be their biggest asset on the move and in a trade for quantity over quality.

As the 49ers hold the 31st pick in this year’s NFL Draft and have only missed the playoffs once in the past four seasons, Denver would essentially be settling for later into-round picks. With some having said PS2 could be worth two firsts, or maybe even a the piece needed for the Broncos if they want to move up from No. 12 to No. 2 in this year’s NFL Draft as they seek a quarterback—it’s a fair assumption that the bottom of the first round pick wouldn’t move the needle much for Denver.

The Broncos would have to get a haul of possibly several first-rounders for the Alabama product. It’s an interesting question if George Paton and Sean Payton are presented with it—if you’re willing to trade Surtain, is it in one giant swing for a single high-ranking pick that could be your franchise quarterback or would they rather get multiple firsts spread out over many years. The team both doesn’t have a starting quarterback and hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2016 so they’re in desperate need of talented away from signal caller as well. As for PS2, he’s on his rookie deal for one more season—making him a prime candidate for a championship contender to see him as the final piece.

The two-time Pro Bowler has played 50 games for the Broncos since being selected ninth overall in the 2021 Draft and is widely regarded as one of the premier defensive players in the NFL. There have been very few trades of this type in NFL history. Jalen Ramsey was covered twice in the game, including once when he was considered a top corner, giving the Jags a top-two spot.

Darrelle Revis was also traded for a first-round pick in his prime, and of course the Broncos ended up being the acquiring team in one of those trades. Taking Champ Bailey and Clinton Portis in the second round. This story was first published by Sactown Sports sister station Denver Sports. Thank you for reading SactownSports.com.
