It’s no secret that the Denver Broncos are set to be sellers at the deadline, with a 2-5 record and Bradley Chubb, Jerry Jeudy, K.J. Hamler, Albert Okwuegbunam and Dalton Risner all rumored to be on the trade block.

It now appears like a deal to trade Bradley Chubb could be nearing completion, as Jordan Schultz, of the score, who reported earlier this week that it’s more likely the Broncos trade Hamler than Jeudy, has now reported that at least one NFL team has made a sizable offer for the star pass rusher.

“A lot of teams are trying to get him, I know that,” one anonymous general manager told Schultz. “We offered a package we think is competitive. Premium position of need and a premium player. We’ll see where [general manager] George [Paton] goes with it, but I’d guess he gets moved.”

The fact that the anonymous general manager described their offer as ‘competitive’ and Chubb as a ‘premium’ asset, both in regard to his talent and the position he plays, suggests the offer is substantial.

If Paton does opt to move Chubb, it could go a long ways towards replenishning a barren war chest, in terms of draft picks.

For 2023, the Denver Broncos presently have just two third-round picks (their own and one that originally belonged to the Indianapolis Colts), their fourth-round pick, their fifth-round pick and the Minnesota Vikings’ seventh-round pick.

If Bradley Chubb could draw a similar deal to the one Von Miller got — and that’s not unreasonable, considering Chubb is younger and experiencing a better season than Miller was in 2021, prior to his trade — it could overhaul the complexion of the team’s draft outlook.

However, trading Bradley Chubb would also mean discarding a potential building block, who is valued both on the field and in the locker room by his teammates.
