Last year, the Broncos traded linebacker Von Miller despite having a 4-4 record through eight games. With the 2022 Broncos slumping to a 2-5 start, trade chatter has emerged regarding linebacker Bradley Chubb.
After Sunday’s loss to the Jets, Chubb was asked about the reports.
“Yeah I heard about them but I’m just focused on trying to help my guys fight through this,” Chubb said, via Mike Klis of 9News.com. “I know it’s a business and anything can happen but all I care about right now is my guys and trying to get this thing turned around.”
It worked out well last year for Miller; he ended up winning a Super Bowl before becoming a free agent and scoring a major deal with the Bills.
Chubb, in the last year of his rookie deal, also is on track to become a free agent in the offseason. Perhaps a high-end contender will make the Broncos an offer they can’t (or at least won’t) refuse for a guy who may be leaving after the season, anyway.
