The Denver Broncos finally got their offense going on Sunday night with a comprehensive performance against the Green Bay Packers.
And, after seeing Peyton Manning return back to form to keep the team unbeaten in 2015, they look set to add to their arsenal of weapons with a surprise trade.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Colorado franchise is set to trade with the San Francisco 49ers to bring veteran tight end Vernon Davis to Mile High stadium.

The details of the trade, which will be completed before Tuesday's deadline, have also been revealed.
The 49ers will, alongside Davis, send a 2016 seventh-round draft pick in exchange for a sixth and seventh round pick in the 2016 and 2017 drafts, respectively.
Davis' name first came up as a possible trade candidate over the weekend, and the player himself admitted he was unsure of his future following the team's week eight defeat to the St. Louis Rams.
After making the Pro Bowl in 2013, the 31-year-old has struggled to find form in recent seasons and has just 18 receptions for 194 yards in five starts this season.
There is no doubt, though, that, in the right situation, Davis can be a threat to opposition defenses. In 10 years with the 49ers, he has 5,640 yards and 55 touchdowns.
Leaving behind a franchise in the midst of a tumultuous campaign, he will now compete with Owen Daniels and Virgil Green for reps in a Broncos offense that finally found its rhythm against Green Bay.
Peyton Manning to Vernon Davis could become a well-trodden phrase over the remainder of the season.
