Over the past two weeks, there has been plenty of rumors, speculation and reports that the Denver Broncos intended to move their two top receivers, Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton. But apparently, that will not actually be the case, after all.

During an interview this week, Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton got pretty blunt when asked if he intended to trade either of those players, indicating that the team has no interest in trading either of the two players even though teams were asking.

“We’re not trading those two players,” Payton said according to the NFL’s official website. “When people call and the phone rings like it does this time of year, [Broncos General Manager] George Paton’s job is to pick it up and say, ‘Hey. Tell you what, we’re not.’ And so, we’ve received calls, you bet. Those are two good football players. But we’re in the business of gathering talent right now. Why do people call? Because they know we’re void of draft picks and that we might, because there was some discussions a year ago, I think, regarding Courtland. But we like the current group that we’re working with.”

It’s a pretty blunt response that should swiftly shut down any rumors.
