Indianapolis Colts reportedly pursuing star receiver from Denver Broncos

The Indianapolis Colts are reportedly pursuing the Denver Broncos star wide receiver

The Indianapolis Colts are reportedly examining what it would take to land one of the Denver Broncos’ starting wide receivers before the NFL trade deadline.

To start the 2023 NFL season, the Indianapolis Colts are one of the big surprises of the AFC. The team enters their Week 6 game against the division rival Jacksonville Jaguars with a 3-2 record. And under new head coach Shane Steichen, the team has improved a lot but received some very tough news this week.

In last week’s win over the Tennessee Titans, rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson injured the AC joint in his throwing arm. That prompted the organization to place him on injured reserve this week and a subsequent report suggested he could be out as much as eight weeks.

However, in a supporting role, midfielder Gardner Minshew has been solid and it seems like his play has given Indy enough confidence to try to improve the team before the trade deadline it deserves. And it appears the Colts are interested in one of the most sought-after receivers on the trade block.

Indianapolis Colts target Jerry Jeudy before October 31st

On Thursday afternoon, Colts reporter Destin Adams said: “Sources tell me the Colts have called the Broncos about Jerry Jeudy, who many around the league believe will be traded before the deadline this year.”

Jeudy has received interest from around the league since the offseason, however, Denver has decided to keep him for their 2023 campaign. Unfortunately, the team is 1-4 and is on a sell-off ahead of the October 31st NFL trade deadline.

Finding another strong receiver makes sense for the Colts, as they need more weapons in the passing game to take the pressure off rising star Michael Pittman Jr.

Jeudy missed a 1,000-yard season in 2022 and threw six touchdowns for a horrendous Broncos offense last season.
