The Pittsburgh Steelers have called the Denver Broncos about Courtland Sutton. But to this point, the Broncos have not been interested in their overtures. But Sutton has not budged on his ask for a new contract on top of that. What does that mean? Pittsburgh is going to have to play a waiting game for their wide receiver trade.

And Broncos beat reporter Chris Tomasson believes that Sutton might be a very realistic trade option for Denver given their impressive first impressions of their rookie wide receivers.

“It remains to be seen what will happen with Sutton, who has just $2 million of his $13 million contract guaranteed for 2024 and could be a candidate to be traded. But there’s little question the Broncos have improved their receiving corps since Sutton took to social media March 9,” Tomasson wrote.

The allure of Sutton is not crazy. He has built-in chemistry with Wilson while he is a big-bodied wide receiver who could play outside, which would take pressure off rookie Roman Wilson to be an immediate contributor to the team. The deal is a bit expensive for the Steelers, but it might be the price they have to pay to land someone like Sutton at this point in the offseason, especially because there will be teams that will be bidding for Sutton’s services, not just the Steelers.

But Sutton makes so much sense from a fit standpoint and while there are some concerns about his game and it’s not perfect, the move makes a lot of sense. The Broncos will want to surround rookie quarterback Bo Nix with weapons, though, and that does hurt the chances of this happening. It will come down to those contract talks and Denver’s willingness to give into what Sutton wants. He is still under contract through the 2025 season, so there is still two seasons of control under his current deal with the team.
