The Denver Broncos have been one of the most active teams this NFL offseason, overhauling large portions of their roster in hopes of being a Super Bowl contender. Some of their biggest moves included trading for Russell Wilson and hiring former Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett as the new head coach.

Having said that, not every single one of the Broncos' offseason moves will work out. Here's a look at three offseason moves that the Broncos will regret in 2022.

Denver Broncos Offseason

1. Signing Randy Gregory to a Five-Year Deal

The Broncos added pass-rushing help when they signed Randy Gregory to a five-year, $70 million deal. As great as the veteran linebacker can be when he's on top of his game, five years is just too much term. For starters, he's missed a whopping 86 games since 2015 due to suspension or injury. Gregory has also only started in 12 of his 50 career games played, leaving others arguing that he has a lot to prove when looking at his price tag. If he can stay healthy and out of trouble, the Broncos will be happy with the deal. But if Gregory slips back into his old habits, the organization is going to wish that they never inked the contract.

2. Trading Away Noah Fant

Noah Fant was one of the key pieces in the Wilson trade with the Seattle Seahawks and the Broncos may come to regret giving up the tight end. He's far from being the league's best TE, but the 635 yards he averaged each season might be hard to replace. Albert Okwuegbunam is currently Denver's TE1 and while he's shown flashes of potential, he only topped 50 receiving yards twice in 14 games (six starts last season). Maybe acquiring Wilson without giving up Fant was impossible, but there's a good chance the Broncos might regret losing the 24-year-old.

3. Not Making a Play for Von Miller in Free Agency

One of the hardest moments for Broncos fans last season was when Von Miller left to team to join the Los Angeles Rams. He did eventually win his second Super Bowl, but the veteran linebacker made it clear that Denver was his home and joining the Rams was "only a job." Miller even hinted at being interested in rejoining the Broncos at the start of free agency, but he ultimately signed a six-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. Failing to pursue Miller by going after Gregory instead could bite Denver down the line. Miller is a fan favorite who could've potentially spent his last years with the Broncos, but the organization opted for a question mark in Gregory instead. Only time will tell if Denver regrets its decision.
