The best thing the Broncos can do for themselves is to pursue Davante Adams

This is what it is all about for the Broncos in free agency. It does not matter how they do it, but they have to get it done. If they want to contend for Super Bowls again by trading for Aaron Rodgers with the Packers, then the Broncos need to pay whatever it takes to get the top free agent in this class to the Mile High City. Yes, we are talking about Packers receiver Davante Adams.

After having spent his entire NFL career in Green Bay, Adams could look to play out the second half of his hall-of-fame-level career somewhere else. The other logical destination for him would be to a division rival of the Broncos in the Las Vegas Raiders. This is because Adams’ college teammate and one of his closest friends quarterbacks the Silver and Black in veteran Derek Carr.

No doubt about it, this is an arms race and one the Broncos have no excuses not to take part in. They are top-six in available cap space. Hackett was his former offensive coordinator. If he can move from Green Bay to Denver and play for Hackett alongside Rodgers, that might be too good for him to pass up. The Broncos can win the Adams sweepstakes, but they must play the game.

Adams is the crown jewel of 2022 NFL free agency, but the Broncos have a good shot to get him.
