Courtland Sutton posts on Instagram after Sean Payton ends trade talk

When rumors were swirling that the Denver Broncos might trade one (or both) of Courtland Sutton or Jerry Jeudy, Sutton took to Twitter on March 10 to tweet, “I just want to be where I’m wanted and appreciated.”

That seemed like a clear sign that Sutton was not happy with the Broncos, but the message was seemingly prompted by the team listening to trade offers. A little more than three weeks later, head coach Sean Payton has put an end to the trade talk.

“[W]e’re not trading those two players,” Payton told NFL Network on Sunday, referring to Sutton and Jeudy.

Sutton seems to be in better spirits now, posting this on his Instagram story on Sunday after Payton’s comments were made public:

Payton confirmed to NFLN that Denver has received calls about Sutton and Jeudy, but the team does not plan to part with either player.

“[W]e’ve received calls, you bet,” Payton said. “Those are two good football players. But we’re in the business of gathering talent right now.”

Sutton totaled 64 receptions for 829 yards and two touchdowns last season.
