Two things have been made clear about the Denver Broncos this offseason: They're looking to move on from Drew Lock, and they're interested in a Deshaun Watson trade. With the Houston Texans' quarterback available, Denver could make a huge move to land their next franchise star.

The player futures odds on FanDuel Sportsbook (only available in Colorado) continue to support a Watson-to-Denver trade. Their odds surged to +300 only a couple of days ago, and they're on the move again. The Broncos are now the favorites to land Watson at +150.

This represents huge movement for Denver, who was outside the top five in the odds for Watson's next team a little under two weeks ago. However, there's increasing noise linking the QB with the Broncos, so it's not too surprising Denver has worked its way up.

The Broncos were aggressive with their trade offer for Matthew Stafford, offering the No. 9 overall pick and Lock to the Detroit Lions. Denver will need to add a lot more than that in order to add Watson, however.

That being said, Houston remains reluctant to trade its star for now. And Denver doesn't have quite the package that can match offers by the New York Jets or Miami Dolphins.

Still, Watson's no-trade clause will play a huge factor since he has final say on his next destination.
