According to Peter King, the Jets and dolphins are among teams interested in potentially negotiating for the Broncos OLB Bradley Chubb.
King adds that the Broncos’ asking price appears to be a first-round pick and a hooked GM told him the Jets and Dolphins would strongly consider that.
The other factor in whether this deal materializes before Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline is Chubb’s contract, per King.
He’s set to be a free agent this offseason and any team that trades for him would want at the very least assurances that he would sign an extension, if not a contract itself as part of the deal.
The Rams have also been mentioned as being very interested in trading Chubb, so that’s something to watch in the next 24 hours or so.
Broncos running out of picks after QB trade Russell Wilsonso they can reload if good deals are on the table for some of their top players.
Chubb is also a strong extension candidate for the Broncos if they don’t trade him, and a deal could be worth more than $20 million a year.
Chubb, 26, was the Broncos’ fifth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He was playing the fourth year of a four-year, $27.271 million fully guaranteed rookie contract with the Broncos, which included a signing bonus of $17.913 million.
The Broncos have decided to go with his fifth-year option, which will cost Denver $12.716 million for the 2022 season. He will be an unrestricted free agent in 2023.
In 2022, Chubb appeared in eight games for the Broncos and recorded 26 total tackles, four tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and one pass deflection. Pro Football Focus ranked him as the 18th leading defender out of 113 qualifying players.
