Bradley Chubb says he can't let trade rumblings get to him

LONDON — Turns out Denver Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb has actually heard the trade chatter too.

Chubb, who remains in the last year of his novice agreement, stated he understands his name has actually appeared on the report mill. But he included that he wishes to stick with the Broncos long-lasting while keeping in mind that the choice runs out his hands.

“I’m not even thinking about that, bro,” Chubb stated after the group’s practice Friday in London. “I’m just focused on these guys right here, orange, white and blue. Be the best leader, got the C on my chest for a reason. Captains don’t let stuff get to them. They don’t sweat under pressure.

“… It’s excellent to have actually that shown up. … It’s simply cool to be in a position where the interest is available in,” Chubb added a few moments later. “At completion of the day, I simply let all that things be dealt with by the individuals who manage it. I simply head out here and do what I can.”

Asked if he wanted to stay with the Broncos past Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline, Chubb said: “Hundred percent, hundred percent.”

The Broncos sent Von Miller to the Los Angeles Rams just before the trade deadline last season when Miller was in the final year of the contract extension he had signed in 2016. The Broncos, at 2-5, are trying to regain their equilibrium, and general manager George Paton said this week that the team is “not in the mode where we wish to eliminate our finest gamers.”

Paton said any result Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Wembley Stadium “should not truly have any effect on what we do.” Asked about Chubb’s status, Paton said: “You understand just how much we like Bradley. We wish to keep all of our core gamers, and Bradley is among our core gamers.”

The general manager did note, “We’re going to what’s finest for the group,” when asked about the potential of any deadline moves.

Chubb, who missed all but four games in 2019 with a torn ACL and missed 10 games last season because of bone spurs in both ankles, is having his best start to a season since his rookie year, leading the Broncos in sacks after seven games with 5.5. He had a career-best 12 sacks in 2018 after being drafted No. 5 overall that year.

“Been here 5 years now, doing the best thing whenever,” Chubb said. “… I’m simply pleased it gets observed.

“Nobody has withered from it. Nobody is like woe is us because we’re 2-5. … Making sure we’re coming out here and prepare to win games”

Asked just how much time he had actually invested fretting about the approaching trade due date, Chubb rapidly stated: “Probably zero percent.”
