Bradley Chubb, EDGE

There would be plenty of risk trading for Bradley Chubb. For starters, the Denver Broncos would likely want a lot in return for the player they drafted fifth overall in 2018.

Chubb also made zero sacks and four quarterback hits in an injury-hit 2021 season. He only played in seven games.

This offseason, the Broncos signed Randy Gregory and used their top draft pick on Nik Bonitto. Could this mean they would be willing to trade Chubb?

Chubb is still only 26 years old. When healthy, he has shown he can be an excellent pass rusher in the NFL.

He was named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team in 2018 after making 12.5 sacks and 21 quarterback hits. His second season was limited to just four games due to a torn ACL. But Chubb responded in 2020 with 7.5 sacks, 19 quarterback hits, and his first Pro Bowl selection.

Chubb dealt with injuries last season, which limited him.

If he can stay healthy, there’s no doubting his talent as a pass rusher.

A trade for Chubb may not seem likely for the Packers, but given the Broncos’ offseason additions and the fact Chubb is entering a contract year, who knows?

Chubb could add a lot to the Packers’ pass rush.
