Danny Trevathan feels he has plenty more in him

Linebacker Danny Trevathan‘s missed 11 games over his first two years with the Bears and the team drafted two inside linebackers in 2018, which likely led some people to wonder if Trevathan would make it through the final two years of the deal he signed in Chicago.

Trevathan rebounded to start every game last year, however, and is set to partner with 2018 first-rounder Roquan Smith in the starting lineup again this year. There’s an entire season to get through before anyone is likely to think about Trevathan’s future with the team in 2020, but the veteran feels sure he has a lot left to offer someone.

“I’m just appreciating each day,” Trevathan said, via Kevin Fishbain of TheAthletic.com. “It’s a blessing to be this far. I take nothing for granted. I just work my tail off and try to bring as many people along with me as I can. We’ve been moving it forward in the right direction. That’s what you like to see in an organization that’s young. Four years here, man. It feels great. I still feel like I’ve got plenty more in me. I’m taking it stride by stride.”

Trevathan’s leadership was praised by defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano at the end of the offseason program and mixing that with another productive, healthy year on the field could mean Trevathan stays around to show how much is still in the tank.

  1. He’s a solid contributor, but not a stud. The hope is that he continues to be solid while Roquan develops into one. I’d be surprised if Travathan got a second contract with the Bears, but having him has been far from a waste.

  2. Trevathan was important to the turnaround and is a solid pro, but that could be a position to upgrade in the future. Roquan Smith next to him is going to show what a stud in the middle is.

    That position is easily replaced in the draft or free agency, but for the right contract I’d keep him. There’s a lot of good players that need to be signed to splurge on a solid veteran player at that position

  3. Danny has been a true bear since he got there. He is always in position and makes the tackle. Me and my brther have a nickname and you heard it here first it’s Laviathan. He is a beast.peace danny we appreciate you.

  4. You keep going Danny. Your play has been stellar the last couple of seasons and I’m sure that will continue. The person who thinks Trevathen is dirty is way out of line. He plays clean and hits hard. that’s what linebackers do…Stay healthy . Go Bears 100 season…Superbowl….
