The Denver Broncos have received multiple trade inquiries regarding wide receiver Courtland Sutton, sources told Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

However, the Broncos don't plan to move Sutton, Fowler adds. The 28-year-old is skipping voluntary workouts due to his contract situation.

General manager George Paton said he and head coach Sean Payton have spoken with Sutton, who's "in a good place," according to Zac Stevens of DNVR Sports.

Sutton has two seasons remaining on a four-year, $60.8-million contract extension signed in 2021. His base salary in 2024 is $13 million, but only $2 million is fully guaranteed. Sutton currently sits 22nd in highest salaries among receivers, per Over The Cap.

The SMU product led the team in receiving yards (772) and set a career high in touchdowns with 10 last year. He's had at least 90 targets and 58 receptions in three straight seasons but hasn't eclipsed 1,000 yards since 2019.

Denver has $17.8 million in cap space, according to Spotrac. The club enters the NFL draft with eight selections but only two top-80 picks. Jarrett Stidham and Ben DiNucci are the only quarterbacks currently on the roster.
