3. Dalton Risner

There is an impact player on defense that the Denver Broncos might trade, there is an impact skill position player that they might trade and there is a impact offensive lineman that could be traded as well. It really does seem like the Broncos are going into fire-sale mode, as so many notable players are in the rumor mill.

One of those players in left guard Dalton Risner, who has been one of the team's best offensive linemen when he plays. Risner is reportedly available for the right price, showing that the Broncos might be more concerned with building draft capital than protecting Wilson.

Can you blame them, though? They traded all those picks and signed Wilson to a contract before he even stepped foot on the field as a Bronco. I would be panicking and hitting the reset button as well.

It obviously would be better for the Chargers to make Wilson's life harder as a quarterback, especially as he continues to get into his later years. It is not easy to build a quality offensive line, especially when you are paying your quarterback as much as they are paying Wilson.

MUST-READ: Promising rookies the Chargers could have drafted

It will be interesting to see what Denver does moving forward and quite frankly, Sunday's game in London might be the deciding factor. If the Broncos end up losing to the Jaguars to fall to 2-6 then we might see these players leave the AFC West, thankfully.
